”A human being is a part of this whole, called by us ‘universe‘, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to apportion for a few people nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.“
– ALBERT EINSTEIN
We live in a time of exceptional challenge in all areas of life. The need for individuals, organisations and nations to move towards greater harmony within themselves, with others and the more than human world has perhaps never been greater. Our primary aim is to support these transformations through the programmes and services we offer.
Since 2001 we work in the Sant Aniol valley, a place of great natural beauty and power. Here we facilitate and host diverse groups and programmes that water the seeds of understanding, creativity and joy. Our work inspired more than 10.000 people to explore and discover new ways towards a peaceful and sustainable future.
We have started the Association Pont de Valenti to give more voice and benefits to our growing family of valley-lovers and supporters of our work. The association is dedicated to both, it’s members, offering special access and discounts to our events, programmes y services, as well as boosting nature-based learning, artful expression and our intimate musical gatherings.
