Cal Guerxo is an incredible place and Emmanuel is an amazing individual. I felt at home at once, appreciating the thought that has been put into the home and how it co-evolves with nature. It was refreshing to experience the autonomy and responsibility given to volunteers by Emmanuel to design and create things for his home. The weekly sessions on regenerative thinking and design are insightful and bring new perspectives. There was so much to learn and one month was not long enough to take it all in! I would highly highly recommend a stay in this idyllic home.

Qué puedo decir de mi estancia en Cal Guerxo (Bresca). Ha sido una experiencia inolvidable en un lugar mágico. La casa esta situada en un lugar alejado del ruido de las ciudades, en medio de la naturaleza, donde puedes conectar con esa energía que te transmite esta. El nivel de mi energía vital con el que me he sentido todas estas semanas ha sido espectacular. Además, Emmanuel esta desarrollando un proyecto super bonito de desarrollo regenerativo con la casa y los voluntarios, un concepto hoy en día muy desconocido por la sociedad. Emmanuel MUCHISIMAS GRACIAS por esta experiencia.

Es mi primer experiencia como voluntario, y como a muchos nos pasa al principio tenemos miedos!
En este caso todo el miedo se fue cuando conocí a Emmanuel, su carisma, sencillez y su predisposición hacia los voluntarios, siempre muy atento a nuestras necesidades.
Estoy muy contento de haber llegado a este lugar mágico, todo es maravilloso!
Este voluntariado me deja muchos conocimientos, la importancia que tiene la naturaleza en nuestras vidas, la forma de adaptarnos a ella sin causar daño, un estilo de vida sustentable y regenerativo.
Simplemente puedo decir GRACIAS, y hasta pronto!

Lo resumiré en tópicos:
Estimulación intelectual
Incorporación de valores
Equilibrio estético
Responsabilidad ambiental (que concierne a esferas económicas, políticas, sociales).
LAS CONVERSACIONES Y EXPERIENCIAS DIARIAS SON DE UN INCALCULABLE VALOR INTELECTUAL Y AFECTIVO.
Las tareas que me han tocado realizar estuvieron relacionadas con la organización del funcionamiento interior de la casa y colaboración en el exterior con el diseño y funcionamiento del jardín, que se enmarca en el diseño regenerativo.
EXPERIENCIA 100% RECOMENDADA.
