assistant and coordinator

Six years ago Shelley & Lawrence bought a beautiful piece of land in the Arrabida Natural Park, with the dream to open a Centre that reconnects individuals and communities to their Selves and to nature, that hosts the worlds master teachers and nurtures the conversation of meeting todays global challenges with love, truth, integrity, enquiry and connection.
Phase one was achieving unprecedented planning permissions- this has now been done.
Phase two was to build the family home prototyping key sustainable construction ideas and techniques, low toxicity, infrastructure decisions and maximum resonance. This will be completed in November.
Phase three is to begin planting the organic orchard and landscape, beginning in December.
Phase four will begin in the spring- finalising the investment capital and contracting to finalise detailed design and build the centre.
Phase five will be to open the Centre in late 2023.
