Os anfitriões, os funcionários da pousada e do parque são muito simpáticos e acolhedores. A casa dos voluntários é aconchegante e bem equipada.
Os anfitriões são flexíveis, mas muito ocupados: é fácil acomodar demandas, mas a comunicação é bem caótica. A característica essencial para os voluntários neste local é pró-atividade.
Indico esta vivência para quem quer ter contato com a natureza e trabalhar a espritualidade. É um local para trazer seus projetos e testá-los, mas não indico para quem quer aprender sendo ensinado. A pousada está sempre precisando de ajuda, é fácil completar turnos lá.

Este 1 mês passou rápido! A Paula foi super flexível com horários para adequar às nossas necessidades. Não recebemos cronograma, mas as necessidades definidas nas conversas e reuniões foram suficientes para nossa organização. O Maurício buscou direcionar as tarefas para meus interesses, então tive a oportunidade de trabalhar na colheita e tratamento de bambu. Atentem-se para a agenda do Templo caso desejem participar das atividades espirituais. Sou grato a Paula e Maurício pela oportunidade, e também pela amizade do Caio, Fabiana, Ivone, Camila, Guilherme e Cida que foram fantásticos conosco!

Amei minha experiência, o lugar é muito gostoso e mágico, de fato. Sinto que tive várias curas e ampliei minha consciência em mts sentidos, principalmente pelas pessoas que conheci lá. Tive mta dificuldade na comunicação cm a anfitriã, que demora p responder e mtas vzs mandava as tarefas DPS de eu já ter dormido (acordava cedo e dormia cedo). Tbm tive dificuldade na locomoção, e recomendo ir de carro para n depender de apps para fzr compras e conseguir aproveitar +. DICA: qm espiritualidade, recomendo programar a trip dps de ver o calendário do templo, ""só"" consegui pegar umbanda :(

Foi uma experiência incrível e enriquecedora. Conheci muitas pessoas de luz, pessoas que levarei para o resto da vida. Sem palavras pra descrever toda minha gratidão.🥰 Paula e Maurício são ótimos anfitriões, sem contar a equipe da pousada. Cida e Júlia são seres incríveis. ❤️ Voltarei para visitar quando puder, pois duas semanas é pouco para desfrutar de tudo. O lugar em si e a cidade tem muitaaa energia. GRATIDÃO 🙏
