There is me, Amiro, who founded this place with friends, and my carpenter son, and usually there are between 5-12 helpers/volunteers from all around the world.
Languages spoken:Español English Deutsch Français
Helpers may help with the garden, occasional building activities - we plan a permaculture greenhouse and some reforms on the houses - and looking after the animals, take care of the forest that feeds our springs, and learn a lot.
In 1981 I founded ElPardal as a place for learning and growing, and finding peace and your center.(Far away from Syphilisation ;-)))
Over the last 40 years I have been learning, practising and teaching many ways of holistic healing, above all through deep massage combined with energy & inner work, and it's the perfect place for unstressing and finding yourself. Deep massage dissolves the chronical muscular tensions you have been
accumulating since birth, takes off body armouring, f.i. the cage that
doesn't let you breathe. Freedom!
The over 100 years old farmhouse we reformed (natural stone walls, grass roof) is situated at 1500 m altitude, surrounded by nature, inside Spain’s biggest natural park, the „Parque Natural de las Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas”.
No neighbour nearer than one hour, the nearest villages are at a distance of 2-3 hrs walking or 1,5 hrs by car. Alpine Vegetation with pines, stone oaks, varieties of bushes and grassland.
The over 100 years old farmhouse we reformed (natural stone walls, grass roof) is situated at 1500 m altitude, surrounded by nature.
We try to live as self-sufficient as possible, with 4 sources on the land, sun and wind power, ecological cultivation of veggies, fruit and herbs, some animals – milk goats, chicken, 5 horses + 2 dogs - , natural medicine and recycling/reusing what we can, respecting and adapting the norms of permaculture. Part of the land is used as pasture, we plant many trees and keep some of the 27 hectares simply protected to see what nature can do.
We mostly have between 3 – 7 helpers from all over the world, who stay for anything between a week and over a year.
We are also open for more long-term members, which would enable me to put more emphasis on the aspects of healing and teaching inner work and deep massage, be it in seminars or individual work.
Also I have years of experience working with difficult kids or those who need a time-out.
So we are a community with changing members who share joy of life & work in a splendid setting.
Come and share the healing powers of nature & the joy of living and growing!!!
Luz y amor en tu camino
