Somewhere in Mexico lives a small community, which remains a secret. Only by word of mouth can you hear about it. This community has 17 living members and has opened it doors to others. They grow their own food, and try to live sustainably using great concepts and bio-construction. Living with the community is a Sharman who performs sacred spiritual ceremonies. This community working together has resulted in a place of creativity and knowledge. It is so versatile and such an exciting place to be with Music, Art, Pottery, Building, Dancing, Yoga, Meditation, Fire ceremony, Tames cal (sweat lodge) and projects within the bigger local community. Within the community they make natural soaps, herbal remedies, hand crafted jewellery and organic coffee.
This film was created so I could share my experience of what it is like to live within a community. I was really inspired by this alternative way to live and feel there is much I have taken from this experience that I will incorporate within my own life. Filmed in December 2012 directed by Serena Aurora.
I was fortunate enough to hear about this place through word of mouth by another fellow traveller in Guatemala. I stayed nearly 3 weeks and found it very difficult to leave. There are many positive aspects to this way of life, which I hope this film captures.

Hi there!
Thanks for posting the video. I am curious to discover if this is a place where I could explore, stretch, grow and learn. Any more information available?
