Take part

Valle de Sensaciones offers you many opportunities to take part in our community as a temporary experience and to enjoy a variety of workshops and different events.

Calendar

Our events and community experiences: Learning, exploration and celebration

The ongoing community life and all activities in our laboratory are arranged as defined time slots. That enables us to define different dynamics and focus which we will dive into with a committed group of people, who each time are forming the actual community.

In our calendar you find workshops, happenings and community experiences of different kind. You are welcome to join.

Community experience

Join our transient community, for a week or even several months

At our Ecovillage- and Eros- Laboratory, community is at the heart of the process. Valle de Sensaciones provides an environment and specific tools, designed to offer an intensive temporary community experience with all its processes and learnings.
In this laboratory context we celebrate community living treating relevant questions towards creating a New Culture. The laboratory themes and research questions might be pre-suggested or simply arise out of the actual dynamic in the group.

Contribution

What are the costs for joining?

For joining the Community experience there is a basic contribution. This includes the costs of food and living, using the entire place, its educational and artistic infrastructure, the basic facilitation of the communal processes, some periodic activities (like sharing circles, medicine wheel ceremonies, dancing parties with DJ,...) and the attentive guidance of our team.

The basic contribution is of 48 € per day. (reduced: 32 €, supportive 64 €)
It starts with an early bird offer at 36 € per day. (reduced: 24 €)
The earlier you sign up the cheaper it will get.

For joining the events an additional contribution might be requested, please see the Event description to find out.
When you arrive for the first time without taking part in an introductory event you will still need to receive the initial introduction to our laboratory. For that there is an extra quote of 60 € (reduced: 40 €, supportive: 80 €)

Our signup form calculates the costs while selecting the desired time slots. That's the easiest way to find out the total costs of your stay.

We offer to cover up to 50 % of any contribution as work exchange, through own sessions you offer in our laboratory and/or by promoting our project.
That way the monetary contribution can get as low as 12 € per day in case you book early, apply for reduced quotes and join sufficient time for your input to get efficient.

If you stay for more than one moon cycle you can get selected for full work exchange. Than there will be no monetary contribution at all, and you might even be able to recover your previous payments.

Work exchange

Covering tasks and responsibilities as part of your contribution

As part of our flexible economy framework we generally offer to cover up to half of the quotes as non-monetary contribution, mostly as work exchange. It is designed to offer you a maximum of freedom and flexibility and to empower you to step into self-responsibility without rigid structures and the usual hierarchic management and control. For many people this is a very new experience, possibly challenging, which offers a great learning experience and might change your entire understanding of work, freedom and self-responsibility.

Participation guidelines

All activities and Living Together at Ecovillage Laboratory takes place in the circle of members of the association 'Valle de Sensaciones'. We offer a free membership to all who wish to participate in any of the above ways. The group size is usually between 5-25 people (exceptionally up to 50) with varying community dynamics. In the event descriptions you can read about the subjects treated during our event, which is then filled with life by participants during the following phase. What emerges here cannot always be predicted, which is one reason of this project to be innovative and authentic.
We do not provide accommodation or entertainment as a tourist service. The household is run communally with all people present.

Getting here

We are situated in the Alpujarra of Granada, the southern mountains of Sierra Nevada, in Andalucia, Spain.
