There's a really welcoming atmosphere at Sitcom, and its a very nice place to spend a while! I was treated very well by Bel, Leo and Caue. I don't speak Portuguese, which made it a bit more difficult at times, but Isabel speaks English, and I could speak Spanish to Caue who speaks 'Porteñol'!. The food's very tasty and the yoga classes are really great.
Thank you very much for having me!

AMEI! O SitiOm foi um lar nesse período que eu passei lá. Aprendi muito, especialmente com os rituais da casa, a falar, ouvir, acolher, compreender. Os trabalhos foram bem distribuídos, tanto os da agro e bi, onde aprendi muito, como também foi uma delícia também trabalhar com a Dani no Quintal, matei a saudade das crianças :) Só gratidão a todo mundo que fez parte desses dias tão especiais. Espero encontrá-los outra vez logo!

Impossível resumir em um comentário tudo que vivi no SitiOm. Só participando pra saber o quão incrível é essa experiência.
Abri canteiro, plantei, podei, colhi, fiz um vermifiltro e tinta de barro. Aprendi sobre budismo e a viver em comunidade, tive muito contato com a natureza e passei a respeitá-la ainda mais.
Cada serzinho de luz daí contribuiu pra minha experiência ser tão transformadora como foi, cada conversa, cada ajuda, cada trabalho e cada momento, levarei pra sempre em meu coração. Eterna gratidão por ter vivido semanas incríveis e ter conhecido pessoas tão maravilhosas. ❤

Estar na SitiOm foi uma grande experiência de conexão com a terra, e de aprendizado de convivência em comunidade. Aprendi a plantar, colher, sobre bioconstrução, e até aprendi a fazer manutenção elétrica da casa! O clima era o melhor possível, a comida sempre deliciosa. Um lugar de muita luz e de pessoas incríveis.
