*CARPENTERS, BUILDERS , ELECTRICIANS AND GARDENERS ARE WELCOME*
We are Jon & Eva, a young couple with a long path on holistic health, retreats and other activities for human consciousness. Living now in a 2 hectares land in Sintra, between the lush green forest and the ocean.
In the last 20 years we've co-founded different intentional communities and retreat centres.
We are inspired by the regenerative culture and permaculture movements, the indigenous teachings from elders and friends from North and South america that promote a new/old way of living in harmony with the whole (from inside to outside) , understanding ourselves as Nature.
We love to "nourish" and create the "fertile soil" for Health, Strength and Joy to blossom. We trained in many holistic therapies and currently work mostly with Kambo medicine, Rebirthing Breathwork, Kinesiology, Healing Nutrition, Swetlodge and Doula support.
At the moment we have one small yurt (our home), one big yurt (for activities such as retreats and gatherings), a teppe, the communal kitchen, a compost toilet, an outdoors shower, the sweat lodge, an organic vegetables garden and a permaculture experimental garden.
We are slowly building the place, enjoying the process, and we're thankful for having help during this affair.
