Medicinal plant project
in Palpung Sera Nevada

We began the medicinal plant garden in 2019 whilst learning the various plants which grow naturally at 2000 metres in our region.
This resulted a small book with the description and properties of both grown and wild plants, about 50 in total.
Tai Situpa provided us with the idea to grow medicinal plants which can be used in Tibetan medicine. Sonan, the Tibetan doctor in Sherabling will visit every year to teach in the use and growth of these plants, as well as observe and study the stars in the dark night sky of the Sierra Nevada.
We hope to be able to provide dates for these courses soon.

Horse riding
in Sierra Nevada

This is another project that we launched this year in collaboration with Antonio and Clara with their new business Equi'Libre, to have horse and mule riding trails across the large immaculate spaces of the Sierra Nevada, admiring the exceptional flora and fauna and sleeping below the stars in the bright night sky.
This contact with nature, the silence and space is ideal for introspection and meditation.
