Our Collaborations

We like to connect

As a vibrant, aspiring integrative development project and intentional community in central Portugal, we aim to coexisting with nature, work together and share our land as a model for an ecological, social, economic, cultural and spiritually regenerative way of life.

   In the recent years we have focused on strengthening our bonds with the local communities in the villages of Paúl and Ourondo, through being represented in Casa do Povo do Paúl as well as partnering with them for events and projects. Our partner project & Ananda Marga department, Amurt also works with the local elderly homes, prison and with its own solidarity kitchen for the marginalised groups, as well as, supporting refugees in the area through UN projects. Our other partner project & Ananda Marga department PRIP & their project Cova da Beira Converge are actively working on the regeneration of the region through synergies with different experts, associations and municipalities. This in order to create proposal within different interest groups such as agriculture, water, education & culture through the concept of block level planning from Shrii Shrii Anandamurti’s PROUT theories and practices. Ecoativo & Estrela Sustentavel (our social enterprise) work with ecological regeneration through artificial intelligence, scientific agriculture, as well as, ecological actions, projects and events.
