Help us create a space that allows us to gather with the people from this area and other countries to sing and pray for the healing of our hearts, our lineage, our brotherhood, our sisterhood, our Mother Earth and Father Sky and for all of our relations.
We are Olly & Andi and we live in a little woodland nestled in the hills of the Serra da Estrela Natural Park in Portugal. This is where we are creating a simplified yet highly satisfying way of life, we chop wood, carry water, grow food. We want to help the land heal and we open our home for people to come and heal, become empowered and live their life again fully from the heart. We work with many indigenous ways of healing & with medicinal plants and are planting many many more, for ourselves and the bees.
Many individuals and families are drawn to this area, and so a little community has been emerging and slowly but steadily growing. We are all coming from different backgrounds and have slightly different ideas of what we want to do here and how to share that with others. Yet we do have in common this epic journey of leaving our comfort zones behind to start again completely from scratch: to grow food, help the Earth heal, build with natural materials, give our children a better education, and inspire the people from all over the globe who come to this area for inspiration, healing and connection.
Our Vision ❤️
Our vision and motivation is one of a strong independent community in this area, where people help each other and co-create a different way of living that is in harmony with Mother Nature and themselves. We absolutely believe that besides this wonderful global movement of coming back to the land and living more simply, there is also a need to re-learn how to actually live as a community, and that such process has to start within ourselves: to learn again what it truly means to be a community and what makes it a strong and resilient one.
Like the forgotten wisdom of our forefathers and indigenous people around the globe, we absolutely believe in the importance of ritual as an integral part in this process of greening ourselves and the world again through functioning and thriving communities.
Every human, including the most educated and sophisticated, desires ritual almost more than anything else. They want it because of the eternal craving of that part of the self that will never quit wanting to be intimate with Spirit. Indigenous people have made ritual central in their life because it takes care of their needs at the deepest level, providing them with meaningful, nurturing, self-transformational ways of truly meeting and connecting to each other. We believe that this is what will make us strong as a community and we wish to bring this awareness back to the wider global community too.
This year we have the great opportunity to host an important gathering that is aimed at helping people to remember and apply once again such indigenous Earth Keepers wisdom to their own lives in these times of immense global change and transformation. This will be the first of many gatherings and thus a true milestone in this transition that so many more people wish to achieve right now. This gathering will allow us to come together in a deeply meaningful way to help us acquire the wisdom we as individuals and as a community need to remain resilient, strong, healthy and deeply satisfied.
The funds we receive from you will allow us to purchase a big ceremonial tipi for such gatherings and thus not only support us in our mission, but also our local community and the wider global community by inspiring and setting an example for others to make the transition back to the land and to harmony with all beings truly successful. The tipi will be made locally by a young woman and mother of three who is also a skilled crafts woman. Our tipi poles will come from our own land and are part of the forest management we have to regularly undertake.
We thank you from our hearts for reading through our mission and for supporting us in any way you can to help us inspire many others. Just sharing our quest with your friends and family will help us and make a difference!
