IKI-GAIA EDUCATIONAL COMMUNITY: A dream including all generations comes true.
Anthropologist, journalist, active mother ...
how can we promote the new educational model that is emerging and that the planet needs?
During this circle talk Rakel, the main promoter and driving force behind the manifestation of the holistic project IKI-GAIA, will share with the support of some of her travelling companions and shipmates, the beginnings of this new journey growing as a cooperative of mothers and fathers in a Health-Action-Biotope of more than 230 hectares where all adults are referents for our children and teenagers. An educational project whose reason to be is to accompany each individuality in the process of discovering their gifts and talents and to encourage the development of BEING in order to achieve our life mission, the one that drives us to LIFE.
During this space, as well as getting to know some of the schools and projects that have inspired the founders of this project, we will investigate together about whether we need the structure of the school to accompany the learning process of our children, about the importance of becoming aware of the way in which we bring beings into the world to make a real change and create a new model of society, about whether we need a tribe for upbringing... and much more!
Free soul, explorer and traveler, journalist and anthropologist, permaculturist heart, nutritionist, companion and facilitator of processes, her being feels universal mother at the service of the new humanity that is emerging.
Among her entrepreneurships the Gaia Learning Community, an educational project of free pedagogy that is based on permaculture and the discovery of ikigai (purpose of life or reason for being) and the gifts and talents of each being, which after completing her 4th year of operating has begun a process of transformation growing into ecovillage and towards a school of life for all generations.
In addition, she is the main promoter of the Spanish platform GAIA-VESAD that has emerged as a result of the pandemic to create a network between the group of professionals in the field of education and groups of people living with dependent children who want to exercise their right to choose the best education for them (including home schooling), to promote together the new educational paradigm and the change that the planet and humanity need.
IKI-ǴAIA, a replicable ecovillage model with a very innovative holistic approach adapted to the transitional times we live in and with a Healing Biotope as the cornerstone of the vision, is their big baby.
This project, which he has been dreaming and designing for more than 13 years, and the last few years together with his partner and father of his son through the association they founded, Semilla Monte Alegre, and which has already manifested itself with the purchase of more than 240 hectares of land, is the fruit of a lifetime's journey.
Promoting permaculture and regeneration of the planet, the holistic development of the being, as well as the recovery of sovereignty in the areas of food, health, energy and, with special emphasis, in education to promote rural repopulation and the development of sustainable settlements around rural educational projects and the return to the land in complete coherence, is their raison d'être.
