  • Description


    Me, Mario 31 and my girlfriend Ana Luiza 28 are free spirits that love meeting new people, sharing stories and bringing creative ideas to life :) We also have two amazing cats you will love to meet.
    Our vision is to create a small paradise where people can come to reunite with their inner child, forget their worries, dispel their fears, heal and rediscover.
    Come Meditate, Dance, Play musical instruments, Paint, Laugh, Practice Yoga and experience a life surrounded by nature.

Our highest goal is to make this sacred place a center of healing where nutrition, vibrational medicine (sound and light frequency healings), yoga, meditation shamanism, herbalism, astrology, tarot, human design and working with color and crystals are but a few of the passions that are shaping our beautiful journey :)
    At the moment I am very interested in Permaculture, my goal is to support an already existing ecosystem with the understanding of sacred geometry, astrology and the power of observation. I envision a beautiful food forest that will support cooperation and bring new fauna and flora to this region.

    This project is a dream of ours and it will never be finished :) Over the past 4 years I have learned that patience is fundamental and when you work with time and love you will create something very special that will touch the heart. If you have the eyes to see and the ears to listen you will see what is emerging here. We are eager to share our vision with you and excited for all the gifts and opportunities that you will present us. Thank you for sharing your light with this very special place 🙏🏻

    We are looking for people with some life experience that we can learn and grow from. So looking for people 25 and older :P
    We usually take guests for a maximum of two weeks but If we get along really well we can extend our stay. We will have a yurt built next year that will allow for longer stays but for now we find the two weeks is perfect for what we want and we get to meet a lot more beautiful souls this way.

    Thanking you all in advance for your interest and help :D
