MOONLIFE ~ Algarve.  A pure place to retreat a moment in life.

We moved from Amsterdam to realize our dream of creating a special place for everyone. We found 17ha rural land in the Algarve – Portugal, that holds the potential of our visions.  It has magical hill views, 3 lakes, a river and is just 30min away from world famous beaches.

We vision a place where you can easily dive deep into yourself, reload your consciousness, be filled with spiritual energy and the power of nature.

Beginning 2019 we started building the project with family and friends. We invested the money we got from selling our house in Amsterdam, total sum of  E 130.000. But we need more. 

So we went to the bank in Portugal and we had a positive feedback!
The bank can invest significant funds to establish all facilities and make it look luxurious, but only after the domestic house is build.
They will evaluate the house and property, and based on that they can provide us the loan.

For now, we are working hand in hand with a local architect, who also helps us with all legal permits and subsidies from the EU for our future eco yoga retreat center.

But what we need now:

We have the house but we need this also:

- septic tank, sewage system & water tank

- the custom cost for import house

- kitchen

- shower & toilet

- one solar panel for our own house

- windows

- diesel for generator

- excavator work

- fruit trees

Total amount of € 20 000.

We came up with a crowd funding plan.

We offer holiday & weekend packages for staying at Moonlife, we also offer gift cards that you can use if you like to come to a yoga retreat with one of our amazing global teachers that we will host.

Or a temporary loan / donations.

Our Grateful feelings are beyond for receiving your help, as we hope one day to host many people can reload themselves and feel at home with us.

Warm wishes, Liladhar, Debbie and baby Jeya.

Moonlife update ~ Life in a rural, wild, though sweet and very very special place has given us intens last few weeks.

One week ago we moved to our land. Before we rented a small place but little on money we decided to move into the wild. We still dont have electricity, a fridge, a shower, a normal toilet or all the other utilities that makes life easier. Specially with a baby. And I can trust to tell you that Liladhar is better in this aesthetic life then me. Although I really do my best and quite getting into place with it. My ‘master mind’ needed to adjust to the simplicity last week to be honest. A bare hill with moving boxes, half a kitchen and half a house. On top all the wheater was sincerre ‘in your face’. We had over 35 degrees, followed by cold days and extreme wind. It was an intens week of hard work to establish a living space on our bare hill. But WE DID IT and Jeya was helping us through with her singing and smiles. And every evening peace came with the silence of sunset. The first night under the stars was a warm sweet evening and I was completly emotional for coming so far, after 6 months. Counting blessings seems more important then ever before. Yoga philosofy is nice on paper, but when you are priviledged to live it, then true learning seems to start. Every evening wind became quite, skies are filled with bright stars and an upcomming full moon shining bright above us. I even saw my first falling star and the love of it pierced through my heart. What a special place. We spent time in front of our altar chanting with the 3 of us and this brought needed peace to our inner world..

Then in between all the wind the good news came also to inspire us again. There is always balance in life. Our 20ton container arrived! The transport couldn’t come up the hill, which meant that Liladhar, with few local guys, unloaded the container outside the village. And yesterday with a smaller truck they brought the 20tons up on our hills. Still the wind was blowing like anything and i praise Liladhar for what he managed. Our whole living area and bodies, kitchen, all covered in dust which reminded of the India lifestyle. Finding myself daily walking with buckets of lake water to do the dishes. So many emotions ran through me last week.

Then yesterday I received a call from previous colleague Aris from Amsterdam. He was in the neighbourhood with his wife Gerda. And they came for a coffee. Once arrived they firmly grabbed tools and started to help us! Helps can come so unexpected and so welcome!! The house outside has now a proper body and the kitchen is much more into place. I was deeply touched seeing what was done after one day by their hands....

Then in the middle we also had a talk at the official office for legal permits. To become one day a eco yoga resort, we first have to become an agriculural farm. And for this we need to plant aprox 3000 trees, clean part of our land, arrange solar system for electricity and arrange the water irrigation. I never knew this would be needed but we really like it. We are thinking of peaches and olives for now. But Almond trees is also opting :)). Or maybe a mix of this three?

We would love you to help us accomoplish this plan. A plant cost around €1,-. So every euro is spent into a land that can give fruits to all. Not only to us, but to the whole eco system. And then one day when we will open the doors of Moonlife, where we can serve you the taste of our own land. The land that you maybe even invested in too...

We dont have time to make a proper marketing video of all devellopment that has been going on, but I hope the pics inspire you to click below and fund us on this life project. Or maybe you also like to come for a coffee like my colleague and take up some tools to help us. All is welcome!

Much Love, Liladhar, Jeya and me.
