FELLOWSHIP

Next edition:

Beginning of 2025

What is the Fellowship ?

An experiment in personal and collective growth.

An invitation to profound transformation.

An opportunity to be part of a community in constant evolution.

A residential programme where 10 “Fellows” will immerse themselves in the culture of radical authenticity that we have cultivated here at El Juego. Over four months, you will share a house on our beautiful land in the mountains of Antioquia, Colombia, as a journey in self discovery and transformation.

During this time, we will support you to:

Together with the other Fellows, you will have the opportunity to:

This programme is for you if…

… you trust that the changes in your inner world will lead to changes in other aspects of your life

… you are passionate about human consciousness and are committed to getting to know yourself on a deeper level

… you have a dream, big or small, and are looking for support to make it a reality

… you want to enter into closer contact with nature and are open to a simple and sustainable lifestyle

Elements of the programme:

Personal Growth

Conflict Transformation

Community Life

Structure of the programme:

This programme will be divided into two parts.

The first stage will be focused on your personal process: this is the moment to look inside, to explore yourself deeply and allow yourself to receive. To discover yourself through your story, to find the origin of your world experience and to transform what you no longer need.

To mark the transition to the second stage, we will invite you to return to the essence and get to know the roots of El Juego in the Campamento (cited as the favourite part of the whole Fellowship by many previous participants).

In the second stage, we will change the way we accompany you, now with our gaze turned forwards: where do you want to go and how can we support you to get there? The focus will be on your dreams and your intention. Other than the continuation of your personal process, make the most of a variety of classes, workshops and personalised challenges for your growth.

The programme includes:

“I’ve never before felt such clarity and determination in what I want for myself.”

Lluis, Director of Human Resources

“Seeing how things work at El Juego first hand, reinforced my idea of therapeutic work among equals, where emotional disclosure and sharing is pivotal in healing on both sides.”

Lucy, Professional Counseller with Family Constellations and Emotional and Body Work

“From the Fellowship, I took away the goal of not harbouring any enemies inside of me: of treating apsects of myselfs that I see as challenges o seek to change with compassion and respect.”

Sonya, Marketing Strategist 

“The Fellowship provided me with support to explore and play with my emotions, and connect more deeply with myself and those around me.”

Lizz, Social Programmes Manager

Here you can take a glimpse into the first edition of the Fellowship, in the words of the Fellows themselves:

Want to know more? Read our frequently asked questions:

No. We use the experiences, challenges and conflicts that come up in our day-to-day lives to experiment and grow together. You also don’t need experience in bio-construction – you will have plenty of opportunities to learn along the way.

We also invite you to share your skills and talents.

It is not a requirement to speak Spanish. The majority of community members speak Spanish plus another language. We offer accompaniment in English, French, Italian, German, Portuguese and Spanish.

 

There is no fixed daily routine. Each day is different. Other than your individual sessions, we offer group Doors, “jueguitos” (little games) and process circles.

We invite you to get involved in the communal activities: building projects, the weekly grocery mission, the care of the animals, classes with the children, organic gardening… You can discover our territory, hiking or on horseback. You will organise yourselves with the rest of the group through consensus to define the daily activities in the Mirador House (cooking, maintenance of communal spaces, feeding the chickens, looking after the gardens).

You will have free time to read, write, draw, paint, sing, play instruments, or do whatever you like best.

This is the name we give to the person who will accompany you in your personal process, who will hold the thread during your stay and with whom you will have regular chats. This does not mean that they have to accompany you in all of your Doors, although they will probably accompany a few. During the programme, you will have Doors and sessions with various members of the community, to make the most of the richness of experiences and perspectives that we have.

We don’t have fixed rules. We use consensus to make communal decisions and create agreements which we are constantly adjusting and evolving as needed.

In everything that we do, our orientation is a collective intention which has accompanied us since the beginning of the community:

“Por lo mejor de todas y para todas. Por lo mejor de todos y para todos. Por lo mejor de todo y para todo. Amor y Libertad.”  

(For the best of everyone and for everyone. For the best of everything and for everything. Love and Freedom.)

 

This programme has a duration of four months. If you are interested in visiting us for a shorter period of time, get in contact with us and consult our “Intensive Retreat” or “Immersion Course”.

You will be living in a rural area, 45 minutes from the town of San Rafael, Antioquia and 3 hours by bus from the city of Medellin.
