  • Description


    Welcome here.
    We offer an experience of living together, hosting events and retreats.

    and willing to learn to build with clay and straw. The aim is to build a new communal kitchen partly with natural materials. We will start with a foundation and roof.

    ***For other volunteers offer spaces again from December on.***
    In general we are looking for support in building, renovating, repairing, improving and maintenance.
    Preparing the space for events is another task for us and volunteers. This includes cleaning, making beds, arranging the space.

    We would like volunteers to stay for a period of min. 1 month unless there are special circumstances that were discussed beforehand. Often after this time we prolong the stay (some people stayed up to 6 months :-)

    Working times are 3 hours per day, 5 days per week (not necessarily Monday to Friday). We offer free accommodation in a shared dorm or you can come with your van / set up a tent.

    If you want to join the communal meals and use all the communal food, we ask 25€ per week.

    About us:
    We aim to support the development of human potential by dance, arts, meditation, being in nature, sharings, attending classes and workshops together. We try to integrate our learning about ourselves into our daily lives. We value a communal living, share meals, conversations, art, knowledge, and life.

    Our space is used by groups and individuals for various retreats, classes and weekly events for example:
    Dance (contact improvisation, contemporary, Gaga), ecstatic dance, somatic practices, sound healing, meditation, heart sharing, theatre improvisation, clowning, drumming, singing circles...

    We are located in the Natural Park of Arrábida, surrounded by hills in a beautiful landscape. The tranquillity and energy brings a sense of peace that allows rest and regenerate.
    Forest and mountain walks can start right from the house. Stunning beaches are a 15min drive away. Rock climbing possibilities near by.
    The towns of Palmela and Setúbal are nearby, and from Lisbon it is possible to get here in 45 min by public transportation.

    We aim to answer all the requests we are receiving, even it might take sometimes a few days, since we are a small team. We kindly ask you to write us only if you are truly interested and capable of coming.

    Our communal kitchen is vegan/vegetarian and mostly gluten-free. Our vegetables and fruits come mostly from a close by farm which grows organic.
    We are a drug-free zone, with some celebratory exceptions.

    As a volunteer, you can use the dance studio whenever there is no event happening or core members are needing it. You can take part in all the events and classes happening here. Most of the times for a reduced price, depending what the organizers decide.

    ***Let´s connect so creation and growth can happen!***

    We are looking forward to welcoming you!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Finding a space where your skills are welcomed. Sharing vegan/vegetarian cooking skills.
    Besides learning how to handle tools, machines, we want to empower you to change things and not just accept if something is broken. (On a very practical level: you don't need to throw the toaster away just because the plug is broken ;-) )
    And we dance, research about human development and try to connect on deeper levels.

  • Aide


    We are now especially looking for someone who can support us in researching ways of fundraising, and launching a shares selling campaign for our cooperative. Also need for a "handyman" with skills of building, repairing and maintaining our buildings.
