8th Life Panama is an Eco-village Project — this means it’s being formed. We’re designing our intentional community to provide a social support structure and a low impact lifestyle for its members, residents, volunteers and guests. We envision an intentional rural community where the values and ideals of community, respect, peace, and living an “on-purpose” life will be rediscovered by those who live here.
This is a unique opportunity to design your future in a healthy and supportive environment. Villa Astoria Guest House provides comfortable, ecological co-working co-living space in rural Panama. This is where we work together as we design and implement interventions on Finca Astoria, 21 Hectares of grasslands and forests just 11 km away, up in the foothills. For more information on these two components of the project, see the land.
We aim to provide a socio-cultural support structure as well as a healthy atmosphere for living and working. For community members, fair work, cooperation, and an abundance mindset replace the materialism, competition and scarcity mentality prevalent in today’s world. To achieve this we are integrating aspects of ecological design, permaculture, ecological construction, green production, alternative energies, community building practices, among others.
The initiative will also include a number of eco-business elements, as we aim to spark innovation that supports a stronger local economy and provides alternatives for local people.
We are currently seeking founding members and experienced permaculture volunteers.
