The Experience

Nuestra alimentación es vegna, seguimos la tabla de compatibilidad de lo alimentos. En todo el tiempo que dura el voluntariado, ni dentro ni fuera de la ecoaldea: no se fuma, no se toma alcoho, no se consumen drogas, no se consum mate, no se consume cafe, no se consume televisión, los móviles están siempre en el espacio donde dormimos. Sólamente bebemos agua y todos los alimentos que consumimos son veganos, sin gluten y mayoritariamente ecológico

Eco Aldea is a beautiful place where the intention is to create a large community. It is a place where you practice and develop a new way.

For those who like spirituality, spiritualism, astrology, Buddhism, meditation, you will feel cosy because there are many activities. It is a new experience that I lived and enjoyed.

Would you live every day like this? No, I am a spiritualist, I have my convictions, I like my freedom. And I believe that we don't need to isolate ourselves to be happy. We came here for a mission, in which we have to live together and face problems together.

Experiência maravilhosa! Recordo com muito carinho todos os momentos vividos e as amizades que fiz. Na Ecoaldea vive-se um ambiente mágico, muito tranquilo que nos conecta ao momento presente. As tarefas vão desde cortar lenha, construção, pintura, cuidar da horta, cozinhar, etc. E depois do almoço temos o tempo livre para desfrutar e várias actividades livres.
Aconselho a todos os que queiram ter uma experiência conectada com a natureza, com maior consciência, que gostem de viver uma vida saudável e em maior harmonia e respeito com todos os seres.
Grata a todos! Saudades!!
Até breve!<3
