Chakra-mandala path

An artistic path along our energetic powerspots

The access to the medicine wheel of the senses goes along the chakra-mandala-way, in which the visitor walks across the seven chakras in an ascendant way. Each of the artistic mosaics has a diameter of 1.2 meters and has one or more precious stones. It is an invitation to take your time and feel in a meditative way the energy of each of the chakras.

East

The place of fire

Element fire The sun, light, warmth Spirit The male principle, power, motivation, new beginning, action in the outer Creativity, freedom, zest The East is made up from a big triangle, which is made out of three smaller triangles surrounding a hexagon. A fireplace on the centre invites you to feel the element fire close to your skin. The hexagonal sitting bench makes up a good frame for a circle of people to enjoy fire parties and ceremonies. Playing drums together is a perfect celebration which express the power of the East.

South-East

Ancestors - Selfexeptance

A rustic temple in the space protected by the Avocado tree. A big sculpture made of an eucalyptus tree, is inviting the visitor to take a rest at its heavy strain, while the other sculptures talk to the world of the ancestors and the spirit of the trees. The sculpture Peter Markgraf has created here a very special atmosphere. The wooden chips still show his carving at the shadow of the tree.

Platonic solids

Understand and feel archetypal spacestructures

The platonic bodies are the five geometrical, regular bodies, which have regular angles at which the same number of areas joint. There are just five such figures, something that already Euclid had demonstrated. Plato used them to interpret the elements. Ever since, they appear in the philosophical essays of the greatest minds, being a sign of the mystery of the cosmos. Already Plato, passing through Kepler and reaching our modern thinkers, such as Heisenberg, have recognized the special place of such bodies in the world.

Solar sculpture

Surprising functions in the crazy energy structure

The energy from the sun is transformed into electric energy by some solar panels build into the sculpture. You can follow this process through some measuring electronic instruments which are visible through a glass. This installation feeds the complete illumination of the garden.

Sound-tree

Sounds are living between roots and branches

Awake the sounds which are dreaming in cavities and niches and between the roots. Achim found this ancient olive tree which was hanging out in an artificial lake in Portugal. It must have stayed for a long time in the depths of the sea, until its rotten roots brought it to the surface. The many holes that it has tell about its maybe millenarian history. Now there is a sound dreaming in each of those holes and is waiting for you to discover it.

Flowforms

Water in a swinging flow

The special form of these bowl make the water, which is pouring into them, swing. It swings and forms an “eight” shape, as a wave which flows alternately to one and the other wing of the bowl. This movement is not only magic for the viewer, but it also stimulates the capability of water to clean and regenerate itself. It corresponds to the natural flow of water, which moves vibrating into the shape of meander.

Icosaedro

Geometric treehouse with sound

Resonance swing

Body experience of resonance

There is a swing on each of the two pyramids constructed with oak. A rope ties both swings up, so that the movement of both are coupled. That leads to tricky effects.

Niña de flores

Flowerchild of the south

Space sound string

The magic sound of infinity

There is a 50 meter long musical string running over the middle point. It is tied on the eucalyptus tree on the other side of the valley. Its sound reaches the pentagonal resonance room through an aluminium stick. Due to the length of this string, its basic pitch, this means its basic vibration, is so slow that it cannot be heard by the ear, but it can be seen by the eyes.

Medicine wheel of the senses

In the medicine wheel of the senses, a lot of spaces are awaiting to be discovered. They invite to: Open your senses for this journey. Open to the quality and power of each of these spaces.

Summer in paradise

Valle de Sensaciones in transition

Dear friends of Valle de Sensaciones The project Valle de Sensaciones is in a difficult but also promising phase of transition. This spring Rahma decided to leave the valley and our relationship, getting back to her life in Germany. This conducted me, Achim, into a phase of grief and reorientation, in which I retreated from nearly all social contacts during 2 month. In this time Peter (the third team member) and me didn't receive guests in the valley.

Creating furniture from reclamed wood

Creativ workshop with Peter

From old materials that others throw away we can build creative pieces of furniture. For example, an old door becomes a table or a bench, a wine barril can be made to a chair, out of old palletts we can make seats, shelves, mirrows, picture frames and a lot more. Wonderful pieces of furniture can be designed and created and there will be no limits for our fantasy. Who rather would like to build an art object will also have the possibility to realise this.
