Vida Holistica El Pardal
In 1981 I founded El Pardal as a place for learning and growing, and it's the perfect place for unstressing and finding yourself.
Over the last 40 years I have been learning, practising and teaching many ways of holistic healing, above all through deep massage combined with energy & inner work.
The over 100 years old farmhouse we reformed (natural stone walls, grass roof) is situated at 1500 m altitude, surrounded by nature, inside Spain’s biggest natural park, the „Parque Natural de las Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas”.
No neighbour nearer than one hour, the nearest villages are at a distance of 2-3 hrs walking or 1,5 hrs by car. Alpine Vegetation with pines, stone oaks, varieties of bushes and grassland. We try to live as self-sufficient as possible, with 4 sources on the land, sun & wind power, ecological cultivation of veggies, fruit and herbs, some animals – milk goats, chicken, 5 horses + 2 dogs - , natural medicine and recycling/reusing what we can, respecting and adapting the norms of permaculture. Part of the land is used as pasture, we plant many trees and keep some of the 27 hectars simply protected to see what nature can do.
During more than 25 years we mostly had between 3 – 7 helpers from all over the world, who stay for anything between a week and over a year.
We are open for more long-term members, which would enable me to put more emphasis on the aspects of healing and teaching inner work and deep massage, be it in seminars or individual work.
Also I have years of experience working with difficult kids or those who need a time-out.
So we are a community with changing members who share joy of life & work in a splendid setting, and:
We´d like to have more long-term members
