  • Description


    The project is to create a self- sustaining healing center, hosting retreats, ceremonies and workshops with a community area for travellers/volunteers.

    Currently, the house is nearly finished being built for guests & family and the garden is being created into a permaculture landscape. There are also two temple spaces nearly completed for ceremonies & classes.

    We aim to be fully self-sustaining, organic and as natural as possible.
    It is located in a beautiful area, on 7 hectares of land in Vale Do Capaõ, surrounded by trees and mountains with lots of waterfalls and rivers and natural spring water too!

    Currently living here is Paul, who is the steward of this land & the main organiser and creator, Ellise who’s working mainly in the garden growing veggies & flowers and looking after the animals (a dog and cat) . We are both from England and love yoga, music, singing, spirituality, health & well being.
    There are some others arriving soon too and we would love for more like-minded people to join us to create a healing community!
