We have just inaugurated our Vitality Tent: a project made by volunteer architects experimenting with bioconstruction who built a structure made with only local and recycled materials, that was designed to fit into its environment in a way that would respect the landscape and enhance the sense of natural immersion.The valley in which it was built, surrounded by mountains and with running water, is home to many species of birds, turtles and even capivara!
This new space is the homebase to the inner skills component of our curriculum - a space of meditation that helps kids connect with the surrounding environment: the sounds, the smells and sights, and thus experience the harmonic relationship among living things. We then take some time to expore how we are feeling, what makes each of us unique: our own nature. This process helps us make a connection of the individual child with his or her own relationship with the environment, cultivating a bond that strengthens their sense of responsibility and sustainability!
We are very excited to use this space to explore the beauty of nature and continue caring for the fauna and flora that inhabit it. Thank you to our supporters who help us make the world a more beautiful and harmonic place!!
