These days it becomes increasingly hard to be truly aware of who we are right now - to see our mode of being (perceptions, feelings, thoughts), the way we act (words and actions), and the way we look at how everything is going (results or consequences).

This anesthesia is normal, it becomes almost ‘desirable’. Works almost automatically. And the multitude of stimuli that could serve our awakening become more distant, and creates the feeling of a comfort zone that does not really exist. And it gets more difficult when we do not have opportunities to experience alternative ways of living that can feed our longing for a “new way of being.”

Difficult but not impossible. There are people who are devoted to an accelerated evolution of consciousness. More and more people…

These people are joining together to provide this opportunity to others. An attitude of service to others so that we become increasingly free. Such an example is the Awakened Life Project which demonstrates this path and proposes to share it with each of us. Quinta da Mizarela is a happening place - where, with a tremendous intensity, live a group of fantastic people who are waking up and intend to catalyze a profound shift of consciousness in those who make contact with them.

In a day visit to meet the space and the project or longer stays - through participation in a meditation retreat, a volunteer program, a practical workshop to learn a new skill- we are immersed in a new world!

A collective of people inspired through sharing a perspective of unconditional liberation here and now, demonstrates a new way to “see“ and see ourselves: as agents of a cosmic evolutionary process of co-creative higher emergence. In comparison with their way of life we can more easily perceive our own.

Through their individual behavior, the peace and tranquility, their way of dealing with nature, their mode of eating, and the way they relate with each other, all shows a new way forward…

They are unique individuals within a single collective. And so this is a seed for a new world, a beacon and they lead us forward…
