Hi, my name is Guillian

I'm 36 years old pedagogue by profession and I'm interested in community processes of learning in any field. I'm pranic healer and artist too (music, engraving) .

 

I was leaving in Mexico city for many years where I opened a pranic healing center with some friends and this center is still working and became a important place for the community. Near the city of Mexico, I was volunteering in a holistic center at the mountains, IZTAC ( https://es-la.facebook.com/IztacMultiversidad/ )  for daily activities and festivals.

 

The last two years I was leaving in Oaxaca (small city south of Mexico) where I had an organic vegetable garden and hens. I was made sourdough bread and biscuits for sale. I also volunteered at a local permaculture center and, take some courses about agriculture. The last month I was volunteered in a familiar farm in Jedburgh, Scotland

 

If it's possible,  I would like volunteer  from the Wednesday 9 to Tuesday 23 of august

Kind Regards
