Leo é muito atencioso e educado. Nos ajudou a cobrir os turnos da Recepção e participou de mutirões de horta e plantio. Veio junto com sua companheira ELô. Por um problema no sistema da plataforma, sua avaliação por nós aqui, não foi possível ainda. mas já deixo nosso registro das 5 Estrelas. até regularizar a questão.
Uma abraço e boa jornada!

O Parque Pico dos Cabritos é um local espiritual muito lindo! Todos os dias você sentirá o contato com a mãe terra, a natureza, há muitos animais e cachorrinhos por lá. Quanto ao trabalho, eu sugiro se inscrever em funções mais operacionais caso esteja procurando um descanso mental e mão a obra ao mesmo tempo. Fora que terá contato com mais pessoas e com a natureza! Há muito morro, então passe no mercado para comprar seu alimento e divida um carro com alguém para subir ao seu alojamento e não esqueça a lanterna de jeito algum. A Cida e o Sr. Jesus são pessoas que você PRECISA conhecer!!!

A vivência no Pico dos Cabritos foi um divisor de águas na minha vida. A energia do complexo é realmente mágica, é o lugar ideal para uma experiência de voluntariado.

Aprendi muito em todas as atividades que pude participar, meus limites foram respeitos e Paula foi sempre muito flexível. A equipe de trabalho é maravilhosa: Júlia, Karina, Edu, Mauricio e em especial Cida fazem com que tudo fique ainda melhor. Minha gratidão a todos!

O contato com a natureza, o aprendizado com os trabalhos manuais e as atividades do templo são o combo perfeito para uma verdadeira transformação.

Como primeiro voluntariado foi incrível. Paula é uma pessoa maravilhosa, iluminada e gentil. Faz tudo com cautela e no tempo dela. A pousada é aconchegante mas o Parque para mim foi sensacional, pq morei lá por 2 semanas e isso me fez sentir totalmente inserida na Natureza, valorizando cada vez mais isso. Sobre as funções, é td definido e esclarecido por Paula, equipe como Cida e Sr Jesuis são demais. Meus parceiros de voluntariado tb foram incríveis e essenciais. Minha dica: já chegando lá, faça acontecer, procure, pergunte, pesquise, se faça útil. Good joob.
