As 3 semanas na Pangeia foram de imersão profunda e intensa nesse lugar mágico no meio das montanhas. Zé, Serena e Jaque são seres humanos incríveis e especiais, que se dedicam todos os dias a construírem um espaço que permite uma nova forma de viver, mais conectada à natureza, mais amorosa e consciente. Eu amei cada momento que vivi na Pangeia e sei que qualquer um que tiver esse destino em seu caminho vai ser profundamente transformado, convidado a olhar para si e para a vida de uma outra forma. O trabalho na terra permite essa conexão. Pangeia é especial!

Pangeia foi meu 1. voluntariado :) Aprendi noções de agrofloresta: plantamos, adubamos, preparamos mudas, tijolos de Adobe e utilizávamos a fossa seca.
Cozinhei no fogão a lenha, meditamos, alongamos, cantamos na fogueira a noite, sob o céu mais incrível que ja vi.
Podíamos escolher entre tomar banho no pocinho, ou na cachoeira.
Serena e Rafa são seres muito encantados, podemos contar com eles a todo momento. Tb nos levaram para conhecer 2 cachoeias locais maravilhosas. Espero voltar p/ uma vivencia maior com eles, muita eterna gratidão e ate breve *_*

Que experiência! Meu primeiro projeto pela Worldpackers não poderia ter sido melhor! Se você está procurando auto cura, conexão com a natureza,a Pangeia é o lugar! Me senti acolhida e aprendi muito nesses 11 dias. A comidinha gostosa da Jaque, aprender a cozinhar no fogão a lenha.. O carinho, o riso da Jaque ao cuidar dos animais. O auto astral do Zé, esse cara rala para caramba e a Serena, o seu nome já diz tudo, coração grande, tão grande quanto seu cérebro! essa menina é inteligente para caramba, então escute muito o que ela tiver o que falar. Sou muito grata por tudo e com certeza voltarei

A viagem para o coletivo Pangeia, não é somente uma viagem física.
É com toda a certeza uma viagem para um profundo conhecimento sobre diversas coisas que eu não tinha consciência, embora vibrasse para isso.
Cada segundo que tive a oportunidade de passar no projeto, me ensinou visceralmente sobre o contato com a natureza, e sobre como somos no íntimo do nosso ser, da nossa conexão com o todo.
Sigo com o coração vibrante, direcionada pela profunda chama da empolgação, que incendeia todo o meu ser!
Sou imensamente grata por todos os ensinamentos e todas as experiências!

Minha experiência na Pangeia foi incrível e também desafiadora!
Se você estiver querendo ir, esteja preparado pra ralar durante a manhã na horta, tomar banhos de cachoeira e usar o espaço compartilhado com respeito e atenção.
Os idealizadores do projeto - Serena, José e Jaque - são pessoas incríveis e totalmente dedicados à vida que levam, de corpo e mente.
Também vale a pena demais conhecer as cachoeiras da região (minha favorita foi a da fábrica), experimentar a comida local e conhecer as cidades próximas (diamantina é demais).
