Terra Nova de Corazón: My first workshops! Manglaralto area, ECUADOR

Terra Nova de Corazón: My first workshops!:

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

My first workshops!

I've been expressing to people that one of the primary goals of Terra Nova is to create a sacred space for people to host/attend workshops (for growth,
healing, living skills, etc.), or simply take a retreat from the daily
grind of Industrial Civilization. Our first events, May 16-18, are shown
here - Guy McPherson giving his presentation on the Global Climate
Crisis, followed by a 2-day workshop on processing and moving through
grief. Pauline will be there as a co-facilitator and to document! 

plan to host a potluck on Friday evening, 5-7pm, before his
presentation. If you're in the Manglaralto area, please stop by and
introduce yourself. If you're coming from out of town, we have a great
deal at Hosteria Arandú ($20-25/night per person, including breakfast), or you can camp/hammock on our land.
For more information or to RSVP, please contact me directly.

The lights were turned on and everyone started to get out of their seats to disembark. The same guy yells again, “Thanks for the lights…. Guess this is the first time you ever flew an airplane.” 

I looked over at Chad and whispered, “Mad White Guy”.

Yes, we were not even out of the plane before some whack-job decided to open his more:

NEW YORK, March 25, 2014 - Featuring the highest active volcanoes in the world, the greatest concentration of species by area, white sand beaches and the breathtaking Galapagos Islands are just a few reasons why Ecuador received recognition as the “Green Destination of the World for 2013,” by the World Travel Awards. According to the World Travel Awards, Ecuador is also considered the number one destination to visit in Latin America and the seventh must-visit place in the world in 2014.

“We’re excited and welcome visitors to Ecuador to explore our country’s rich landscape,” announced experts from The Ministry of Tourism of Ecuador.

From environmental and biological diversity, entertainment and adventure, Ecuador offers something for every traveler.

 Considered a year-round destination, tourists can explore the Andes Mountains, relax under the dense canopies of the Amazon, sight-see along the beaches of the Pacific Coast or observe the Natural Heritage of Humanity site of the Galapagos Islands.
