ABOUT US

PURPOSE & ETHOS

“When you are in touch with the dimension of being within yourself – and being in touch with it is your natural state, not some miraculous achievement – all your actions and relationships will reflect the oneness with all life that you sense deep within. This is love.”

–ECKHART TOLLE

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.

KORBI HORT | FOUNDER & DIRECTOR

ANNA CARCELLER ROCA | HOSTING & COMMUNICATION

Anna lives here at Pont de Valenti and supports the project in marketing, booking and hands-on hosting of guests. In our School of Youth programme she is also part of the facilitation team.

In her work she love to create emotionally safe spaces, since she sees them as essential for people to express themselves openly. It is in such authentic encounters, that she herself feels uplifted, nourished and inspired. It is from this place of caring that Anna supports our groups during programmes.

As a practicing ceramist and lover of music she is a fountain for creative inspiration and artful expression.

LUCIANO GUTIERREZ | CURATOR & FACILITATOR

In 2017 Luciano arrived at Pont de Valenti, and feels at home in these mountains ever since. Here, all the experiences and skills aquired along the way of life have found their purpose: from studying performing arts at University, his love for curating music and dance events, facilitating educational programmes, to being a chef – following in the footsteps of a long family tradition of gastronomy and hospitality.

His artistic work both, as actor and dancer, was always related to body awareness and movement – learning how playful interaction with others allows us to floursih in dance and song naturally.

As a lover of this valley, its silence, stability and beauty, is an ever present experience here. Luciano feels grateful to share and accompany people this experiencing here. 

LUCAS DOFFO | VEGETARIAN CUISINE AND HEALTHY EATING

One of the first places that really amazed me in Catalonia was the route from Sadernes to Sant Aniol. The Café en route at Pont d’en Valenti inspired my steps and now finds me between contemplation, rhythm and the adventure of living.

I have been practicing yoga for years and I am passionate about percussion, but above all, the alchemy in the kitchen, trying to bring nutrition to nourish body and soul. I got to know this project by returning here over again, first as a friend and spontaneous collaborator, now as a cook and part of the Easy Day Team.
