The Alcateia do Lobo in a paw print
The Alcateia do Lobo Ecovillage - an intentional community centered on the concept of living our best lives. The private homesites are spacious enough for plenty of breathing space between you and your neighbours, and remote enough for you to get lost in your own thoughts as you listen to the omnipresent sounds of nature just outside your bedroom window..
The water you drink is pure and fresh as it bubbles out of the ground from a perennial source on the property. The air you breathe is rich in oxygen, purified by the vegetation that breathes all around you. Nature, all about you, teams with life. Every morsel of food you consume is produced on the property and is bright with colour and rich with flavour. Every moment passes slowly and perfectly. Your life is in balance and you've never felt more alive or so at peace.
It is a cooperatively owned Ecovillage that focuses on cultivating a holistic culture of wellbeing to nurture oneself, one’s community, and the environment.
Our fundamental vision is to practice and offer the science of inner wellbeing to every human being – a science that would help our Wolf Tribe Members realize their ultimate potential within. From this vision stems a multitude of projects, programs, and methods, all towards the same aim: to ultimately raise every human being to the peak of their potential, so that they are exuberant, all-inclusive, and in harmony within themselves and the world.
Our vision is also to cultivate a harmonious environment that integrates healthy human and ecological interaction and offers a living model for thrivability (the ability to thrive).
The Alcateia do Lobo Ecovillage incorporates permaculture design, sustainable food systems, holistic healthcare, compassionate communication, contemplative education, family nourishment, and integral business ethics to fulfil this vision.
The Ecovillage at The Alcateia do Lobo is the result of the ongoing collaboration between highly functioning individuals who have all come to the same conclusion; that society's current way of living is simply not sustainable. It is a cooperatively owned Ecovillage that focuses on cultivating a holistic culture of wellbeing to nurture oneself, one’s community, and the environment.
