[ Coração Aberto – Open Heart ]
What’s best to open the heart than gratitude??
We are grateful to have been chosen by Quinta Ten Chi to be its shepherd!
We are grateful for the beauty of the land, the power of its history and the endless possibilities it seems to hold.
We are grateful to have this opportunity to invite you to find your own gratitude and aliveness in this special place.
We created a journey geared to find our connection with ourselves, what we can gift to the world and if/how Quinta Ten Chi is the place where our work could thrive. We will walk the land and sense its gifts, needs and desires. We will turn the camera toward ourselves individually and collectively, sensing our own gifts, needs and desires. We will cook, eat, dance, chop wood and regenerate our connection with nature, community and spirit.
This shows how the time will be divided between different invitations, ranging from embodied self awareness to community care. Of course all activities are fully optional and you can simply join for eating, being in nature, dancing and generally enjoying each others company!
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.
During the event we will have a sign up schedule to help in preparing food and space for meals.
Here you can find a list of people that need and offer rides, the area they come from and when they plan to arrive and leave Quinta Ten Chi.
The event is 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.
It will help us to know how many people will be present each day! So if you don’t mind sign up for the Thanksgiving event here.
