So with your money we will build a beautiful yoga community on La Palma, a place where there is always spring, where there is no pollution, and which is secure to build from all kinds of wars and disasters. Support this project with your daily work! You can be part of it. Your donation will make you rich and give you the opportunity to live here anytime. In this place you will be safe from the turmoils of WW3.

your donation will help:

  1. To make people contact their highest self

  2. Develop a loving, serving attitude 

  3. For people to regain their health

  4. Children can grow up in good company.

  5. The blessings you earn from them will be very conducive to your development.

There will be plenty of opportunities to do seva (selfless service) or to engage in special talents (music, healing, massage, teaching, dance, cooking, permaculture, craftsmanship, sanskrit, ...).

If there are too many people, then those who have been here the longest will just move to the little houses in the garden, sleep in a tent, or on the terrace. As it stands, we all still have commitments in Europe. It is likely that at the beginning most will only be here for a few weeks a year. At the beginning normal tourists have booked the house every now and then. The more support we receive, the sooner we will be able to provide this wonderful place entirely and exclusively to yogis and devotees.

What has been achieved so far:

  • Villa Govinda was found and aquired

  • Friendly contact with the local Vaishnavas, Yogis and Bretharians was established

  • New team for guest care on site and garden maintenance was found and incorporated

  • The flat roofs were lovingly laid with tiles and converted to two yoga platforms/sun terraces

  • The upper apartment has been made habitable and now has a new kitchen, a pull-out couch and a table with panoramic view

  • Number of guest beds already increased from 6 to 8.

  • Lawnmowers and tools were purchased

  • Orange painting of the yogaterraces

  • The solar hot water system was transported to the small flat roof

  • The SAT receiver and the antenna were attached to the outer wall and no longer interfere with the yoga platform
