The community was conceived not as an end in itself but as a medium for creation and evolution. The inspiration of the founders was fed by the Jungian Psychology and its conception that dreams are a magnificient medium through which to access, know and transform our subconscious. As in the Senoi tribe, the act of telling our dreams in a group, creates a secure framework in which each person can show themselves in their totality, as they really are, without receiving anthying other than empathy and support from the others. .
Apart from this, it is through the human relations and coexistence, where experimentation takes place, that each human being is able to progress in their individuality. This is a process which makes us more unique, more complete, but which, at the same time, brings us closer to each other..
Our experience shows us that the spiritual dimension of the human being is not developed by adhering to a school, church or system of beliefs, rather that spirituality comes when our interpersonal relations become creative, based on confidence, respect and colaboration.
The farm is situated in the foothills of the Sierra Morena, some 50 Km north of Sevilla, and covers an area of 200 ha. The main part of this remains in its natural state: a cover of rockrose and holm oak populated by herds of deer and wild boar. Various seasional rivers water a volcanic, clay and arid earth. The scrubland serves as pasture for a herd of goats and as a source of firewood for the stoves and fireplaces in winter.
We have planted numerous fruit trees, olive trees and other trees which provide shade in the hot Andalucian summers. Our vegetable gardens and greenhouses are brimming with vegetables, strawberries, aromatic herbs and medicinal plants.
We cover our necessities in hay and cereals with our own harvest, and produce our own honey and olive oil aswell, using our own mill.
The electrical energy is mainly of solar origin and the majority of the constructions were built by ourselves. If in the initial years we built with the priority being to give sufficiently comfortable shelter for all the participants in the project, today we aspire to develop new constructions of organic and energetically efficient character, with a view to receive our new visitors in optimal conditions.
