Temporary community and learning experiences.
An experimental field close to nature for Permaculture, DIY construction, sustainable technologies and living in community.
Living creativity in sensual contact to nature.
The Valle de Sensaciones (valley of sensations) is the prototype of an ecovillage laboratory, a place which enables the establishment of temporary communities to provide extraordinary experiences of communal living and learning.
It offers the infrastructure and the framework to allow groups of people to come together for training, inter-project research, inspiration, experimentation, development and creative output.
The focus of the project is the feelable integration of humans in nature, the artistic accomplishment of the educative infrastructure, as well as a habitat which supports building community and the creative expression of each individual.
Valle de Sensaciones also aims to be a place of inspiration and cooperation among creative people. Here we are creating an artistic sustainable paradise. You can find an educational park, experience artistic tree houses or caves, take part in multiple workshops, and jump instantly into community life. The wide range of subjects, like permaculture, green building, eco-technology, LandArt, music, instrument-making, drumming, and shamanism, is merging into an experimental fusion of Nature, Art and Sustainability.
The project is mainly dedicated to people and existing groups who want to experience this unique environment for a short period, even if we are open for new long-term members in the event that we get a special personal and professional resonance.
Our communal living is based on our community-mandala which consists of a game board as a tool to organize the tasks and responsibilities of the communal living. It enables a community to share these functions in a flowing, flexible, fair and holistic way. This tool was developed by the project and is offered on our website www.tooools.org.
