The way from Maella to Flores de Vida can be done by feet and might take between 60 and 90 minutes. For the transport in the course of a session or other event that includes the shuttle service we will use our van. In general it will be only used for the transfer at the beginning and the end of an event, the van is not available for personal excursions. There might be always the chance to get a ride when we leave for other things like shopping. We try to minimize the need of using the car and combine as much transactions as possible with each ride. The idea is to leave all the cars on the parking side and only move them on the main area for charging and discharging things that are to difficult to carry. There is an old tractor to transport materials on the terrain. There might be also the chance of having a least one intact bike during your stay that can be used for cycling around and even for going to Maella. We offer this on the assumption of you taking good care and repair possible damages.

La simplicity

Nourriture simple, et confort simple. C’est à la fois dû au fait que le projet en est à son tout début, et que les équipements se mettent en place petit à petit. Il n’y a pas encore, par exemple, l’eau courante.
C’est aussi un choix de vivre simplement. C’est ainsi qu’il n’y pas de table ni de chaises à Flores de Vida …plus près de la terre.

Les repas

Il n’y a pas de repas organisés. Chacun se sert, en autonomie, quand et comme il en ressent le besoin. Il se peut qu’à l’occasion nos besoins coïncident et que nous mangions ensemble, il se peut aussi que non.

Je propose d’expérimenter juste de l’eau le matin et des fruits un peu plus tard quand le corps est bien réveillé. Cela va encourager le corps, par l’écoute de ses besoins, à apprendre se nourrir à son rythme, simplement.
