Participation guidelines

'El Valle de Sensaciones' is dedicated to the experimentation, development and learning of a way of life and a way of creative activity in community and in unity with nature. In order to have a legal framework, and not to enter any restricted and conditioned tourist category, this project is made up exclusively by the members of the association Valle de Sensaciones. To facilitate the participation of interested people, we offer a free membership upon arrival.

The experimental development is made on various levels, such as:

life in full contact with nature
taking full advantage of natural resources and materials
creation and use of artistic, as well as sustainable, constructions and spaces
creation and use of systems of eco-technology
living together, human communication and eros explorations
living together and cooperating with other beings

We do not offer lodging and support in the usual tourism style. If you decide to spend some nights at this place, may it be under the stars or in the artistic spaces, or if you decide to share the kitchen, toilette, or showers with us, you do that being aware of the concept of taking part consciously and willingly in a project about experimenting unusual ways of living.

Whoever is taking part in this project should be conscious that they are entering a non-conventional environment, and this requires total attention and caution on accidents and on causing any hurts to yourself or to aliens.

Each participant must take full responsibility for his stay and his deeds.
The use of any areas and buildings is at your own risk.
Parents assume full responsibility for the stay and the deeds of their children.

Economic concept

The contribution for joining our project is defined in marbles, our internal currency.
Marbles help to compensate the different economic capacity of our participants, support easy ways of non-monetary exchange and offer a framework for economic flow in the valley.

Marbles can be bought for 6 € normal price (4 € reduced and 8 € supportive).
You can also get them for referring participants to us, for doing work exchange on the place or at home, or for offering sessions inside our laboratory.

Your contribution is composed by 2 positions

Basic quote: Covers all basic costs of our project: Food, infrastructure and maintanance, administration, basic facilitation of community, marketing, insurance,... . This is paid by everybody taking part in the community, even if the amount depends on your type of membership.
First signups and long term participants enjoy a lower basic quote, as they build the core of the community seed. For enjoying lowest quote we recommend to reserve your place early, or join the community for an entire moon cycle or longer.

Event quote: Just charged when signing up to a certain event. We mainly pass this budget on to the facilitator(s) or the event organizers.

The combined contribution of both is than split in 2 payments

Deposit: For reserving your place you need to transfer 50% of the total. This amount is always paid as money.

Remaining balance: Once in the valley you need to hand over the remaining contribution. This can be paid in money or in marbles.
