We live in a special space in between the Andes and the Amazon of Colombia where healing arts and ancestral medicine are practiced.
We host students from all over the world with the intention of introducing ancient practices and rituals along with the knowledge of medicinal and sacred plants.
We continuously work with communities nearby in order to establish a beautiful connection with the people and the land, so we have some interesting projects involving sustainable practices, education and agriculture.

We are located in a stunning spot in front of a Lagoon, where we connect to the nearest village (El Encano) mainly by boat.
At the centre we respect a slow technology policy, so we don't have internet, not a lot of artificial light and we produce most of our food, medicine, etc.

Our daily activities can be very flexible, but we engage in many practical works with plants and we encourage self-exploration and meditation.

We also educate people on the different rituals and plants of the Amazon along with hosting shamans and locals with the aim of enriching our wisdom.

Life here can be seen as simple and profound. We are not a commercial site and we try to host a few people at a time so to hold a quiet, creative space.

The only helper we need at the moment should have specific skills on gardening or martial arts.

Typical working hours are 4-5 per day with a day off weekly. This can be arranged personally with the helper.
In case of a community project, helpers can manage their spare time and be more independent.
MINIMUM TIME PREFERRED: ONE MONTH
MAXIMUM PERSONS PER STAY: ONE

*THERE IS ALSO A SEMI-VOLUNTEER POSITION FOR PEOPLE WILLING TO ENROLL AN INTERNSHIP AND HAVING DISCOUNTS IN EXCHANGE OF A FEW HOURS WORK PER DAY*

For specific questions, please contact us.
