CO PROJECT FARM PORTUGAL
A BRAIN SPA FOR CREATIVE OPTIMISTS
SYSTEMS CHANGE WORKSHOPS | DESIGN CAMPS | CREATIVE REGENERATION RETREATS
Down a winding unpaved road lies an abandoned olive oil mill from the turn of the century, a 100 year old farmhouse and a beautiful olive and citrus farm. This once-abandoned space is being transformed into a living learning laboratory and brain spa for creative optimists. On the CO Project Farm we run UnSchool workshops, host weekend creative residencies, run design and leadership camps, have big community open days and offer a full service retreat space for facilitators and like-minded organizations wanting. We are closed for the winter and will reopen our doors at the first signs of spring time.
A brain spa is a place where you go to get your neurons recharged. So many burnt-out creatives try to get their energy back by having their bodies worked on, and whilst this is nice (who doesn't like a long massage!, And yes we can arrange this too), it's often our brains that need the recharge through reflection, connection and creativity.
The Brain Spa concept is about creating a space for regeneration of the mind as much as the body, in nature, with incredible people, nourishing food and the experiential learning to take back to your busy productive change-making life.
JUST 1.5 HOURS FROM LISBON, IN A SMALL MOUNTAIN TOWN TOWN NEAR A BEAUTIFUL RIVER PERFECT FOR REGENERATION
WE HAVE AMBITIOUS PLANS FOR THE MILL RESTORATION
The Brain Spa concept is all about establishing a unique creative space dedicated to an educative and regenerative experience that focuses on systems, sustainability and design. Burn out affects many people and just getting your body massaged is not enough to regenerate the neuro fatigue that affects many people working to activate change. A Brain Spa is a place for creative renewal and regenerating energy for elevating potential for positive impact in the world around us.
Systems thinking is all about understanding the dynamic and interconnected systems at play in the world around us. The new insights that emerge from systems thinking enable more in-depth insights to form the foundation of systems systems change.
Our programs are based on the 3 pillars of systems thinking, sustainable sciences and design thinking as tools for activating positive change. All our programs are immersive and experiential, allowing for a rapid and significant transfer of systems thinking knowledge and tools.
