Bio (Vida) – Construction :  Construction Life

Bioconstruction is to design, build and interact with consciousness and respect, with Mother Nature, a territory, a community, their strengths and their leaders. Upon establishing that connection of respect and humility, health, consciousness and understanding, one also bioconstructs a complementary relationship.

We invite you to bioconstruct in this mystical place, a sacred territory, which integrates the natural harmony of the forest and the mountains with ancient construction techniques with guadua, bahareque, mud, straw, stone and palm leaves.

This workshop is open to everyone who wants to live in harmony and have contact with our Mother Earth. It’s an technical learning experience in sustainable construction, based on the profound thought process of First Nations, which are centered around respect, love and life in community with the environment.

This theoretical and practical experience integrates bioconstruction techniques, activities to recognize oneself, the territory and their ancestral leaders. We will approach the practice of yoga, meditation and ceremonies in a learning environment filled with joy and consciousness.
