A energia desse lugar é regenerativa, o contato com a natureza é 110%
Você precisa trazer sua barraca e roupas de frio, pela manhã chega fazer 9°c e por ser perto de Cachoeiras parece que abaixa ainda mais a temperatura.
Os anfitriões Marinã,Rai e o pequeno Zion me receberam super bem, eles são um pouco calados as vezes, mas como todo mundo estão focados nos afazeres do dia a dia. Eu gostei muito, hoje encerra o voluntariado mas vou ficar mais por conta própria. Se vc vem pra ficar 1 semana, aposto que vai querer passar 1 mês. Venha que vai gostar.

A experiência que eu tive na Terrinha foi maravilhosa!
Amei conhecer Marinã, com quem obtive uma enorme troca de aprendizado com o feminino e despertei ainda mais interesse.
O Zion com sua inteligência e Raí que dividiu conosco tanta informação sobre bioconstrução e as diferentes medicinas.
Também me diverti muito com o mascote guerreiro!
Foi um momento de conexão com a terra e comigo mesma.
Cada dia uma atividade que agregou e me levou a crescer como pessoa.

experiência muito boa!
A possibilidade real de conectar com a natureza é com o próprio ser.. além dê uma visão clara e realista de o que implica a vida na roza..

Os meninos são maravilhosos e a comida também.. as instalações são básicas, o banheiro é uma pá e o água e fria 🤭 mais tudo isso também é a vida na natureza..

Sim você tem vontade de natureza o lugar pode ser ótimo.

Gratidão 🙌🏾

Minha experiência na terrinha foi ótima! Raí e Mariña me ensinaram muito, aprendi bastante sobre bioconstrução ajudando na construção da cozinha de pau a pique. Lá a energia é solar, água em abundância, banheiro seco, banho gelado, uma imersão de conexão com a natureza no meio das montanhas. Recomendo a experiência.
