  • Description


    We are a Family living in Tzununa, on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. We have a Teaching space where we share courses and classes about holistic healing, spiritual herbalism, metaphysics and meditation. We have large gardens of medicianl herbs and home grown food which we use personnally and sell in the local communities. Our project is a small version of what will mature into a large-scale project.

    We offer courses on Spiritual herbalism, Holisitc Healing, Metaphysics, Tarot reading yoga and meditation. And we also give individual coaching sessons to those wanting a more one-on-one approach. Marcus, who teaches the classes and courses has been working in a meditation centre and with herbal healing for over 20 years and his flower essences have helped many people over the years in their personal transformational journeys.

    At the moment we are working on getting this space ready to be rented a a retreat or workshop space, and rent out the accommodation.

    Our team is made up of like-minded people who are vested in our philosophy and vision, who share our dream of living and thriving in community together. It’s important that you read as much as you can about our project so together we can decide if we are a good fit.

    The specific jobs we are now offering are:

    • PHOTOGRAPHY, mainly for accommodation spaces and garden
    • SOCIAL MEDIA, optimization of settings, hash tags, content creation
    . WEB SITE BUILDING, i need to create a web site for the retreat space. Please note that this is not so much about knowing how to use wordrpress but more about actually writting the texts, uploading the pictures, work on the SEO etc

    We have a bunch of experience in working with volunteers, mostly good, but some not so much. we are NOT looking for labour in the gardens NOR hands-on work with remedy making. These are activities which we are open for people to lay with but not part of our exchange since we already have trained local people that make a living out of it and need the job!

    We would ideally like it if you can commit to at least 6 WEEKs. We work 5 hours per day (25 hours a week) and will be happy to share tips about what to see and do here in your off time.

    What We Offer:

    • Shared accommodation
    • One of our group courses or 3 private sessions per month

    Tzununa is a small quaint town in Lake Atitlan, only a 5 minute water taxi or 15 minute tuk tuk ride from San Marcos La Laguna, one of the most famous "holistic culture" hubs in Latin America. You can enroll there in courses of all sorts as well as receive a number of different holistic health treatments . Foreigners only recently started moving to our little town, that now hosts our place, an ashram and a permaculture farm providing opportunities for courses in yoga, permaculture, meditation, language and much more.

    You should know that we have dogs and cats, so if allergies are a problem, let us know. Good physical condition is beneficial, especially if you are unaccustomed to steep and rocky pathways. Though Tuk Tuk’s are readily available, there will still be much walking/climbing involved.

    When determined that we are a good fit for each other, we will forward information about preparing for the trip/visit.

    Please know that we value your time, expertise and passion. We need all of us to be in the same line when realizing this is an exchange of proffesional skills and not just some fun favor to each other. During the first week of the program we will be seeing if we are all a good match for each other, please bare in mind that this in needed in order for all of us to have a pleasant experience and have a lot of fun and growth in the process.

    Our best,

    Ana and Marcus
