Have you ever wondered who you'd be without capitalism?

Intercambiamos is a queer radical sanctuary space in the Costa Rican jungle for the playful, exploratory practice of post-capitalist forms.  Here you can come stay, teach and learn tangible, tradable skills, while helping to co-create a collectivist reality and experiencing life on a jungle-farm. Everyone who stays helps with farm care and invents projects that engage their interests-- paint a mural, build a shelf, design a new garden. The space is made and re-made by the creativity of those who come.


The project is new, started in 2018, and is looking for energetic people excited to lead projects and join the family.

Individual mentorship in intuition & extra-sensory perception

Minimum stay: 21 nightsMaximum capacity: 4 people
Food Not Included
This is an opportunity to do an individualized mentorship with Allison, the founder of Intercambiamos, during a stay at the sanctuary. Allison is a healer and writer, and has spent years helping people develop a deeper understanding of their bodies and connecting to internal guidance. She does intuitive energetic body work, communicates with her ancestors and all sorts of animals, spirits, and beings around, and started Intercambiamos, an activist sanctuary space outside of capitalism, to live in the environment where people can really holistically heal. The mentorship and exchange will be arranged on an individual basis. It is an opportunity to not only receive individualized energetic work and mentorship, but to try out all the new skills in an integrated, beautiful community environment.
In exchange for individual mentorship, hosting and facilitation, the participant will help Allison with projects depending on the participant's skillset and the needs at the time. This could include help with cleaning, animal care, farmwork, and/or website/publicity, organization, brainstorming.

Who is this for?
Anyone looking to dive deeper into dreams, visions, sensations in the body, ancestry or intergenerational healing, intuitive bodywork, mediumship, etc. It can also be for anyone in a transitional moment in their lives, looking to move forward more from an internal place than from external obligation.

What is offered?
This is an intimate exploration into the self: where we move from, what our body asks of us, how we understand signs and symbols and synchronicities. It will be a warm, nurturing experience, involving energywork, bodywork, writing and art prompts, and lots of individual conversation and narrative work. The participants will also be a part of the community at Intercambiamos and be able to take part in all the workshops, trips to the creek and the beach, game/dance/movie nights, chats about non-violent communication and capitalism, evening circling, etc.

What is the exchange?
In exchange for the mentorship and hosting, the participant will provide Allison's food for the time of their stay (roughly $40/week), and help with whatever is needed at the time (i.e. cleaning, website work, etc.), depending on present needs and the participant's skillsets. Creative exchanges are very welcome! In addition, like all visitors to Intercambiamos, they will share in farm care responsibilities.

Quiet morning time for meditation/exercise
Morning check in with everyone on the farm
Daily farm tasks
Time for personal projects or farm projects
