About This Center

“Nature is sacred: When we cause harm to nature, we cause harm to ourselves.”

- Enrique Paredes Malendez -

To protect and preserve the planet’s natural resources and culture such as found in the Amazon Rainforest. The forest has so much to offer in terms of food, shelter, medicines and millions of years of culture and history.We are working with indigenous people in Peru to ensure self sufficiency using natural systems like Permaculture and learning from them how to preserve ancient tribal knowledge and culture on the brink of extinction as popular commercial culture expands and sweeps away everything in its path by seducing the younger generations with it’s fast cars and mobile phones. We are for nature and we are for the people.

We’ve been running retreats in yoga/meditation and Shamanic Healing, in collaboration with Enrique Parades Melendez; resident Curandero (healer), of Santuario Huishtin. The month long course focuses on cleansing the body of toxins and the mind of self limiting belief systems, as well as healing past traumas and preparing for the future. Our retreat is an amazing collaboration between Enrique’s traditional Shamanism & the holistic global approach injected by Greenlight.
