Eggs of Happiness make me HAPPY!

Today I am so happy! I found some organic eggs in Sao Paulo! (believe me, still not that easy to find them around here!)

And the eggs were called EGGS OF HAPPINESS from this community that I went years ago; called Yamaguishi in Jaguariúna/ Sao Paulo.

By the time, I did a retreat called Tokkou that really touched me and still makes me happy when I think of it. For me, their way of common unity is really essential: see each other as brother/sister, that WE ARE ALL ONE; coming from the same source.

You can say that is easy to say and hard to do…then you should make a way to visit them or be part of one of the tokkou…. after that you might say that is hard to say, but easy to do!

At my visit to the Vila Yamaguishi, I was very impressed by their hight level of loving, sharing and the high level of sustainability! It gave me heaps of hope!!

To find out more about this movement started by a Japanese much before Climate Change and Peak Oil go to

And i found the eggs and others good priced healthy food at Marukai, a charming family well organized supermaket at Rua Galvão Bueno, 34. Liberdade – the Asian suburb in Sao Paulo, by the subway…




And again my promisse that I will be more regular to feed this blog!
Here we go…….

I just spent few days in Sao Paulo hinterland visiting a very special place called NAZARE PAULISTA.

Nazaré is around 70km away from Sao Paulo capital. You can just get a bus at the Tietê Bus Station and organize someone to pick you up to get to there or you can try an adventure: moto taxi!

Nazaré Uniluz (University of Light) is not exactly a community, but I do believe that is a place that everyone would learn some skills to live, in an intentional community or not.

Nazaré Uniluz is a place to awake and develop ourselves in a more holistic way.
The principles of their work; since it has been create in the 80´s ; are: the art of given heart, meditation and the spirit of presence in daily activities.

They have a beautiful veggie garden by the water, a bakery, a library and plenty of space for arts, meditation and social interaction.

It seems to me a beautiful opportunity to spend some time.
Good food, good people and a private room!
