There's something about this place and its people. It feels intriguing, sparkling and beautiful. I felt protected between those mountains and that land speaks to you. There's a rhythm here and it's comforting and stimulating. It's been a powerful growing experience for me. I'm grateful for the openness of the eco village, for their willingness to go through any kind of situation together. Communication is at the base of every trustworthy relationship and I'm happy to say I had the opportunity to share uplifting conversations here. Really thankful for this experience, can't wait to be back.

I want to express my sincere gratitude to Tribujam, the place where I had the opportunity to volunteer. It was a truly enriching experience, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, where I found a warm and welcoming atmosphere that made me feel like part of a big family. The lessons I learned during my time there are invaluable and will continue to guide me in my life. Thank you for this unique experience!

You are in a mountain valley-the view of the sunset is unlike any other and right outside the house, every night. I met multiple absolutely pure hearted and clear minded people. The pace was grounded, peaceful. You feel the well intentions and the eco village. I completely recommend, feel free to reach out with questions

The experience with Sage was more than we could ask for. I speak for myself but think for all the members of the community. Very balanced and calm energy. Very participative in whatever tasks or even suggesting tasks. If we could have Sage permanently she would be welcomed wholeheartedly. Thank you Sage for the memories and energy you left behind. Tribojam will be your home and refuge regardless!

My experience at the eco village was really valuable and transformative. Everyone there is welcoming and embraces you in the eco village, it is also usually very social with lots of other travellers to connect with. Feeling the breeze of the mountains at night and laughing into the expanse of hills in the sun gives you the freedom of the wind. It is the kind of place that is full of love in many forms. I signed up to do music volunteering and i found that is was a great place to learn as i didn't have much experience. because of this I also helped around with building and tasks that needed to be done.
