HEAL is a sustainable human settlement. We practice a way of living that “touch the earth lightly”. By this practice and the application of Permaculture, we strive to be a healing presence and witness to the integrity of all creation. HEAL was founded to be a place were all people, all cultures, and all creation are affirmed and celebrated.


The Great Work now as we move into a new millennium is to carry out the transition from  a period of human devastation of the planet to a period where humans would be present to the planet in a mutually-enhancing manner.

–Thomas Berry

    I might come there by December 2016 with my sister, Lilia. Capulaan is our barrio and never visited for a long long time. I wanted to stay in one of your hermitage huts. Thanks for developing this community. 🙂
