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 dojo to tune in with oneself, each other and the social field around including the land. It has been a very interesting journey to travel together since last year, seeing how we weave in and out of different “times” in which different village configurations and themes make themselves visible. Trust, support, grief, joy, acceptance…
We now offer the dojo practice every day, join us 10 – 11.30!
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 12 indoor (10 Euros/person/night suggested donation) and 50 outdoor spaces ( 7 Euros/person/night) for camping, so bring what you need for sleeping (tent, mats, sleeping bag, pillow etc) and towels.
There are bathrooms and hot showers available.
If you prefer more traditional sleeping arrangements nearby there are 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 (POTLUCK ) and we encourage each of you who 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.
The events are open to families, dogs are allowed only on leash. No other pets allowed on the grounds, we have a delicate ecosystem of wild and domesticated animals which we invite you to appreciate.
