Nature for healing, healing for nature
We are healers of the earth, of human and non-human animals. Part of our work inside and outside doors is to support indigenous populations´ initiatives in order to increase the conservation of the amazon forest. As a community we got installed in a piece of land in the Amazon in order to restore the forest, rescue the native and endemic flora and heal the different living beings that live in our community and the ones that visit us.
Restore the Amazon forest and conserve the cultures and pristine forest from the region.
To be an organization that units and supports different social and environmental groups from the Amazon that promote sustainable alternatives respecting nature and indigenous cultures.
In order to conserve and/or restore the forest, protect indigenous rights, protect animals and nature´s rights and stop global warming we facilitate access to economic alternatives and knowhow resources, connections, guidance and healing to the people interested in Amazon's rainforest conservation.
Our mission in situ is to be an example of a social and environmental restoration project. A place where people can accomplish part of their social and environmental responsibility with us.
Create a community/network where people with the same dreams and values can connect and develop/create things together for the common good and nature conservancy.
We promote permaculture and healing. In the north part of the Amazon we have been working with another organization called la Clínica Ambiental. For 13 years la Clínica Ambiental has worked with affected people from the oil exploitation and the glifosate spraying in the border with Colombia. After 30 years of court action, Chevron Texaco hasn't taken responsibility of the oil spill from her company that caused a social and environmental disaster in the Amazon. This catastrophe is called the “Chernobyl of the jungle”.
After seen that not the company neither the government of Ecuador were doing something to repair the damage, la Clínica Ambiental started to do activities in order to restore the environment, the health of the people and the social fabric form the region. The Seed´s Guardians have been training people on the permaculture with all the topic related to soil, water and food; Kausana has been supporting these activities by doing healing therapies to restore the health and social fabric and workshops with topics like: good nutrition as a medicine, ancestral Chinese and native medicine from the Amazon and the Andes, yoga, meditation and personal development.
In the region where we are located we have been doing environmental reparation for 13 years. Our social work has been focused on environmental education with children and adolescents and supporting indigenous women on their own projects that are focused on environmental conservation and indigenous cultures protection.
