Welcome to the Finca Argayall

In the language of the native people of the Canary Islands our name means “place of light”. We live on a 1 and 1/2 acre estate (”finca” in Spanish), adjacent to a secluded bay on the Atlantic Ocean.

About Us

Project Argayall was founded in 1986 with the intention to create an alternative, experimental and experiential community.The desire for  community life in this beautiful and unique setting forms the basis of our vision here on the Finca.

At any given time,  approximately 20 people live and work here. Our ability to share this magical and powerful place with our guests enables us to keep this experiment alive and healthy.

Welcoming Guests

We welcome guests for room and board as well as host seminars and workshops.

Visitors, both overnight guests and workshop participants, discover in this community a sense of  personal transformation and  freedom which impacts their lives during and after the time they spend here.  The magical power of  nature on Argayall  draws many to return.

How We Organize Ourselves

Argayall is overseen by a group of shareholders who invest their time, hearts, and money in its sustenance and continued growth.
A management team directs the general operations of the community and the business. Departments, including Guests, Kitchen, Garden, Technical and Finance, are lead by one person working together with a team. The permanent crew (staff) consists of about 12 people who commit on a long-term basis. However, to give as many people as possible the chance to experience community life , we have a number of positions for shorter terms.

Ideology

We have no fixed ideological beliefs nor do we, as a group, follow any particular teacher or master. We support and respect each individual’s path.

Community activities include Meditation, group process, Satsang, doing nothing, having fun, and dancing.  Qualities we value are respect, self-responsibility, authenticity, integrity, and creativity.

We are grateful to be here, and we hope that those who either are our guests or join us in working in community will feel the same.
