Cycle of Pachamama

April 2 - May 1, 2018

The Pachamama, or Mother Earth, is the feminine goddess of earth and fertility, a benign agricultural deity conceived as the mother who nurtures, protects and supports human beings.

Achim Burkard


Each moon cycle in our laboratory is dedicated to a specific theme. It starts right after the full moon when the lunatic celebrations gave a glowing end to the previous one. We start the cycle with forming the core community, to hold the space for the next phase, with reflecting about its theme, and to share how each of us is called to get in touch with its essence. In the middle of the cycle we will consciously pass the new moon, a phase of reflection and of manifestation of the new. For then riding on the uplifting dynamic till stepping into our special lunatic celebrations again.
We recommend to join for an entire cycle if you are interested in fully experiencing the laboratory and the community in its depth. Participants of the Cycle will get the priority work exchange opportunities, while having the chance of learning how to become a responsible participant of our project. Depending on your skills and interests you can choose to focus more of the social level, the infrastructure or the garden and the land.

Cycle crew

A 4 week long common journey of exploration and experiences

For each moon cycle we select a crew to go on a journey together. They start the cycle with initiating a group process, building a field of trust, sharing about longings, mapping their skills and designing the coming dynamic together. Than an intense and unique 4 weeks long common journey will start. Together they will receive new arrivals, integrate them into the common exploration, guide group processes, offer sessions, support other facilitators which might step in short term and attend the practical works of maintenance and farming.

For selecting the crew we take into a account

  • disponibility to join an entire cycle, preferable more
  • disponibility in exploring the Eros
  • previous experience in community
  • ability to hold space, facilitate and offer sessions
  • practical skills of maintenance and gardening

Up to 6 crew members can enjoy full work exchange without any fee and even the possibility to create a moderate payment.

Others can still join the crew with the usual quote:

  • Registration fee
    • normal: 500 €
    • reduced: 333 €
  • The balance to be covered by work exchange.
  • Optionally the balance can be covered by monetary payment to be free of any work expectation
  • Third party workshops held during that time are usually optional and might require an additional contribution
