Los Portales is an intentional community that practices innovative ways of life in different areas including organic agriculture, holistic education, deep psychology, empowering and power-sharing systems of governance, conflict resolution, natural medicines, art, clean energies, an economy based on sharing, and above all, the empowerment of each individual, continually advancing towards greater sustainability and self-sufficiency.
Founded in Andalucía in 1984 (although born in 1978 in Brussels), the inspiration of the founders was nurtured by Jungian psychology and dreamwork as a way to know and transform their fears and pains into power and to access their hidden talents.
Los Portales has a firm commitment to personal and global development and harmony through respect for oneself, each other, and the environment. Its members conceive the community not as an end in itself, but as a means of creation and a path of transformation.
Its mission is constantly evolving to respond to the global need for change at this very special time in the history of humanity.
After 33 years of existence, Los Portales is a well-established, stable and broad project that has developed in many directions and integrated the main dimensions of sustainability.
