Consciously created, spiritual community and retreat centre. Our vision is to raise spiritual and environmental consciousness and create space for transformation.
The intention is to attract a core team of eight people with different skills to care for the land and facilities, cook and work together in balance.
Ideally, some of these people would be interested in offering workshops, courses and retreats to share their skills and knowledge with the community and guests so we learn and grow together.
