The daily schedule of each community weekend is created to give everyone the opportunity to contribute in making the experience meaningful and magical for all, using the support of the Open Space Technology.
Each day is structured around 3 main activities:
Morning practice: a Social Presencing Theatre practice to tune in with oneself, each other and the social field around.
Open Space: your time to shine! Share knowledge, suggest activities, facilitate processes… It includes a daily opening to propose the activities and a closing session to sum up.
Community practice: to caretake of community, food meals, garden and cleaning of the space.
We have indoor and outdoor spaces for camping, so bring what you need for sleeping (mats, sleeping bag, pillow etc) and towels. There will be bathrooms and hot showers available. If you prefer more traditional sleeping arrangements nearby we have some possibilities ranging from the luxurious Hotel Vila Gale Sintra (walking distance) to a variety of options you can check online between Varzea and Sintra.
Meal preparation will be a communal practice and we encourage each of you who will join us for one or more meals to bring enough ingredients or already prepared dishes to cover your own food needs +1. When you arrive you can drop your food directly at the kitchen, which you will find down the road toward the parking area, on your right.
For each event we try to connect people that need a ride to the ones that can give a ride. Let us know if you need one!
The events are open to families, and depending on the number and age of children we might have some separate fun times for the young ones. Please let us know how many people will be in your party and how many of them are children.
At the end of the events you can offer a donation to cover the expenses of the space, but nobody is turned away for lack of funds, so don’t let money come in your way to join!
