    Hi everyone! After a long time we have opened our space in the mountains. We live in super adobe houses. We need help in the area of maintenance, construction and administration.

    We have two pets and we have a kitchen, bathroom, private room, internet and wonderful mountain views. Pure and clean air.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The location is really magical. Few minutes away from little waterfalls and beautiful mountains. In the road you can find cows and horses eating calmly, custard apples and avocatos falling from the trees. Taking part in this project means a direct connection to the land, the nature and the natural resources the Earth gives us to live with her in camaraderie. Volunteers can participate in a collective creation experience, work with the mexican power of the land tradition and culture.
    Tepoztlan is a known Magic Town that combines mexican tradition with the mystic power of the mountains and the influence of eco and esoteric tourism. This is a very attractive place to experience in first person the magic and intense power of the ground you are treading on.


    El lugar donde se encuentra es mágico. A poco minutos de unas pequeñas cascadas y unas montañas hermosas. En el camino o la carretera hay vacas tranquilamente pastando, caballos comiendo, Guanábanas (Chirimoyas) que caen de los árboles y aguacates. Participar en este proyecto implicaría una conexión directa con la tierra, la naturaleza y los recursos naturales que nos ofrece para convivir con ella en camaradería. Los voluntarios participarían en una experiencia de creación en conjunto, trabajo con la tierra,
    Tepoztlan, a veinte minutos en coche, es un pueblo mágico que combina tradición méxicano con el poder místico de las montañas del lugar y la influencia del ecoturismo. Es un lugar muy atractivo para vivir en primera persona el poder mágico del terreno que pisas.

    Help

    We invite people who can help us with our compost and help build a vegetable garden, we want to work the structure of a super adobe house, do you want to learn any construction techniques? Help us and you will learn new things.
    Welcome people who have lighting experience, we want to design our spaces with the correct light and your help is very useful.
    We are also interested in receiving a person who can help us directly with the administration of the place, since in a couple of weeks we will be offering workshops and we need someone to take care of that area.

    In this space we do not accept acts of violence; We want the people who live with us to know how to self-regulate, and to know that at any time during volunteering, you can say no by both parties.

    Invitamos a personas que puedan ayudarnos con nuestra composta y trabajo para construir un huerto, queremos trabajar la estructura de una casa de super adobe, ¿quieres aprender alguna técnica de construcción?, ayúdanos y aprenderás cosas nuevas.
    Bienvenidas personas que tengan conocimiento de iluminación, queremos diseñar nuestros espacios con luz correcta y tu ayuda nos viene muy bien.
    También nos interesa recibir a una persona que pueda ayudarnos directamente con la administración del lugar, ya que en un par de semanas estaremos ofreciendo talleres y necesitamos alguien que se encargue de esa área.

    En este espacio no aceptamos actos de violencia; deseamos que la gente que viva con nosotros sepa autorregularse, y saber que en cualquier momento del voluntariado se puede decir que no por ambas partes. Cuéntanos de ti.

    Accommodation

    We have three rooms and one large lounge. Depending on how many volunteers we have at the time, they can sleep in the individual rooms or sharing the big lounge.
    The house is a curious building. It creates a new experience of living there and adapting the place for the stay to be as much pleasant as possible.
    We provide an the food based on vegetarian cooking, fruits, vegetables, seeds....

    We are interested in being able to eat healthily and for that reason we add to the pantry what implies a healthy and rich diet for all; however, we ask that if you have any specific need that you need to cover for your best food; You can get those items on your own and confidently save them for personal use.

    Volunteers are responsible for bringing their personal cleaning supplies; as toilet paper and body soap; shamphoo; etc.

    Dependiendo de cuantos voluntarios estén en el momento, pueden tener una habitación individual (disponemos de tres) o una gran sala compartida en el caso de que vengan más.
    La casa es una construcción curiosa con baño seco.
    Nosotros proveemos los alimentos diarios con base a la cocina vegetariana, frutas, verduras, semillas y todo lo necesario.
    Nos interesa que puedan alimentarse sanamente y por ese motivo agregamos a la despensa lo que implique una alimentaciôn saludable y rica para todos; sin embargo pedimos que si tienes alguna necesidad especifica que requieres cubrir para tu mejor alimentaciôn; puedas conseguir esos articulos por cuenta propia y con toda confianza guardarlos para su uso personal.

    Los voluntarios se hacen cargo de traer sus articulos de limpieza personales; como papel de baño y jabon corporal; shamphoo; etc.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    To get to the place there is a little bus you take in Tepoztlan and takes you to Ocotitlan in 20 minutes. After that you have five minutes of beautiful walk to our place. In the house there is an atmosphere of tranquility and a favourable enviromment for meditation, yoga, dance...So please be welcome to suggest any of these practices you feel like sharing.
    There is no wi-fi at the moment, but we are working on that to have it as soon as possible.
    We would love the volunteers to become involved with the project to reach some weekly little goals and also manage to rehabilitate the place for the first retreats. This might mean 4-5 hours of daily work plus one free day a week...but in essence that's something we can create and discuss together considering always compromise, respect and affection for the place and the project.
    On the free time you can go hikking, trekking and exploring the mountains, visit Tepoztlan pyramid, its colorfully and cheap marketplace on weekends, go to Temazcales or events in the surrounding areas...


    Para llegar al lugar hay que coger un pequeño bus desde Tepoztlan hasta Ocotitlan (20 minutos) y luego unos 5 minutos de linda caminata. En la casa se respira tranquilidad y un ambiente muy propicio para las meditaciones, sesiones de yoga, danza, que los voluntarios quieran proponer o practicar. En breve habrá internet, pero por el momento no disponemos de wi-fi. Nos gustaría que los voluntarios se implicaran en el proyecto para lograr unos pequeños objetivos semanales y lograr rehabilitar el lugar para los primero retiros. Quizás esto signifique un mínimo de 4 o 5 horas al día de trabajo en casa y un día a la semana libre...pero en definitiva es algo que se va creando y discutiendo en conjunto desde la base de compromiso, respeto y cariño por el proyecto y el lugar. En los ratos libres se puede caminar por la montaña, visitar la pirámide de Tepoztlan, su mercado colorido, variado y barato de los fines de semana, acudir a las clases o Temazcales que los alrededores ofrecen...
