Borne out of the many years of learning, traveling, self-development and healing practices of Sandy, this is a holistic and cultural center in Portugal in the process of coming to life.
It will be a home for retreats, workshops and training intended for self-development and health thanks to volunteers' help.
At the moment no paying activities are taking place as the place is still being prepared to receive paying guests.
The vision of this project is to create a better world, by empowering people to fulfill their greatest potential through self-development activities and teachings; such as ayurveda, chinese medecine, family constellation, non violent communication, meditation and other different ancestral and alternative therapies.
If you are interested in personal growth and making a difference through a change of lifestyle or diet, you will enjoy this experience. As Sandy loves to share her passions for food and lifestyle. If events occur during your stay you can also attend part of the events. Also you can join the yoga classes or meditation classes if they are happening during the time of your stay. At no cost.
At the moment we are still in the process of building the spaces for the events and classes.
This home has an organic, biological, botanical garden of edible and medicinal plants. We are growing 75% of our fruits and vegetables.
The aim is to hold space and an environment where one is able to hear their inner voice as they go on a path of healing and self-discovery.
Tap into the energy of this project to leave your footprints in a creation of a space that will serve many like-minded people who are seeking peace of mind, a connection to their core nature, or simply a perfect place to just be, grow, share and learn. Looking forward to meet you!

Through your stay you will learn all about wholesome healing foods and plants through organic plant based cuisine and permaculture. Also learn and practice some healing tools for the body and soul through yoga, meditation, art therapy and ancient medecine if events are occuring during your stay. Beyond a free stay and food is it a chance to live a nourishing human experience through connections with people and creativity; what better way to live and visit Portugal when also learning more about its culture. In exchange of 4-5 hours a day of your energy will be required to transform this home in a center specialized in self development and healing.
Thanks to many volunteers hands, through a co-creation form, this space is growing everyday into a peaceful haven with rich soil offering abundant organic harvest. At the moment, some of these skills would be required to continue on with this mission/vision of creating an international platformed intended to share knowledge related to health and self-development:

You will stay in a quite comfortable room which is bright and large located in this beautiful home. The room you will get may vary depending on when you come as there is the possibility of private rooms and shared rooms (with max 2-3 people). This is a house that has also a kitchen you can use, bathroom with hot water. Late Breakfast and early dinner (mostly plant-based organic meals) will be provided during your work period.
The house located about 5km to Aveiro. You can get to a close train station in 15 minutes on foot, which can take you to Aveiro in 3 minutes, to Porto in 1 hour, and to Coimbra in 1 hour. Lisbon is just 2.5 hours away too.
Known as the Venice of Portugal, Aveiro is surrounded by salt-flats, beaches and lagoons and dominated by the Central Canal running through town.
The real charm of Aveiro lies in its coast, with its fantastic sandy beaches: São Jacinto, Barra, Costa Nova and Vagueira. This local coast is well known as Silver Coast, due to the beautiful and clean beaches.
Today the best kept secret of its attraction apart from the extensive soft sand beaches that reach from Mira in the south, to Espinho in the north, is it's relative less "tourist trap" quality and authenticity coupled with less costly food when compared further south, Algarve.
