About.

¿Bien cansado de lo que está pasando en el mundo? ¿Quiere hacer algo al respecto? ¿Qué te parece la paz, el respecto, y el vivir a propósito? ¿Qué tal el trabajo justo, la cooperación y una mentalidad de abundancia?  ¿No sería mejor que el materialismo desenfrenado, la competición, corrupción y mentalidad de escasez prevalentes en la sociedad? 8th Life Panamá es apoyado por la ONG española Asociación Gaiai Tasiri y nos han pedido abrir su sede en Panamá.  Villa Astoria es nuestra 'casa de huéspedes' que ofrece tarifas diarias, semanales, y mensuales para nuestras habitaciones cómodas y estamos desarrollando Finca Astoria, nuestras 21Ha de gramíneas naturales, colinas, valles, y bosques vírgenes en una ecoaldea basado en la permacultura. El espacio de co-trabajo, co-vivencia se comparte entre nómadas digitales, voluntarios de 8th Life Panamá y las personas interesadas en unirse a nosotros como co-fundadores.  ¡Únete a nosotros en #ElVerdaderoPanamá para aprender más.

Es el momento de transicionar de una sociedad destructiva a un mundo sostenible. 

Empezando localmente, tenemos que parar la destrucción, crear suelo, restaurar ecosistemas, sanar nuestras adicciones, cambiar estructuras organizacionales y de poder, y aprender a vivir en comunidad.  Necesitamos mover todos los recursos posible, lo más rápido posible hacia las soluciones más efectivas si vamos a parar y revertir las tendencias destructivas y crear una economía nueva y más sana.

Si te queda claro que apoyar la transición de nuestra sociedad destructiva a un mundo sostenible es tu primera prioridad, te encantará esto y te estamos buscando. 

8th Life Panamá es una iniciativa colaborativa de vida-trabajo que forma una comunidad intencional en las montañas de Antón, Panamá.  Nuestra 'casa de huéspedes', Villa Astoria, sirve como centro de operaciones y alojamiento mientras desarrollamos nuestro proyecto de permacultura de 21 hectareas (52 acres), a sólo 10 km en la comunidad de Las Guabas Arriba.  

Te ofrecemos una oportunidad única para diseñar tu futuro en un entorno sano y apoyador.  Villa Astoria Guest House ofrece espacios cómodos para vivir mientras co-creamos la comunidad intencional basado en la permacultura en la Finca Astoria.  Esta es una oportunidad para pioneros.  ¿Estás lista para unirte? 

Buscamos a visionarios; personas con un espíritu emprendedor que creen, como nosotros, que ahora es el momento de transicionar de una sociedad destructiva a un mundo sostenible.

*️Technology: Website, Positioning, Marketing*️ (Max 2 positions)

These positions are housed at Villa Astoria and require knowledge and experience in Word Press website design and maintenance, SEO, digital/online marketing including social media outlets such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (and other emerging outlets). Tasks include updating and improving the website, improving and implementing marketing plans, creating/editing content, interacting on social media platforms to increase engagement and followers, troubleshooting technology issues. Ideally also includes taking photographs and videos, and administrative support (e.g., replying to emails, replying and creating engagements on social media platforms).
5 hrs per day – 5 days/week – live at the guest house, share food expense between volunteers & residents

*️Finca Projects; food forest gardens, water systems, power systems*️ (Max 4 positions)

We’re going to start planting the food forest gardens this year, work on water systems and start to look at options for generating electricity at the Finca. We’re also planning some structures like a ‘rancho’ or ‘gazebo’ type shelter for meetings and training events, swales, dams made of recycled materials, clay, rocks, etc. with spillways, ponds and irrigation channels.

We also need detailed topographical maps showing contours, vegetation, paths/trails and roads, and other features of note such as streams, springs (if any), gullies/run-off ditches, changes in elevation, etc. We expect that those working at the finca will each take primary responsibility for one area and will collaborate with one another as needed. The four main areas we see at the moment are mapping (so we can develop a comprehensive site plan), water systems/swales, etc, buildings, and electricity.

4 hrs per day, 5 days/week – live on the land in your tent (or under one of the first structures once built), share food expense among volunteers, project provides a basic allowance - includes up to 2 days per week at the guest house. Rotate time away from the finca so that there’s always someone on the land. The first project (unless we manage to build them beforehand) is to build the solar shower and compost toilet.
