In December 2020, Blattwerk Naturpädagogik Berlin opened the Alegría Educación Natural on La Gomera Valle Gran Rey directly on Vueltas beach. It is a space for free education, a mentoring centre and a place of learning for people of all ages. The Alegría offers a painting room, a seminar room, a play room with Montessori materials and natural play materials.

It is a place for nature education, Montessori education, free and self-determined education, guidance for unschooling families and a gift to Valle Gran Rey. People from many nations learn together here. We speak Spanish, English and German.

Courses, seminars, open meetings and community-building activities take place in our rooms. Likewise, outside our rooms, we organise community walks, excursions, sea experiences, educational and experiential activities such as tree climbing, sailing, apnoea diving, etc.

We cooperate with the Cabuwazi Circus Berlin and organise projects for children and young people.

It is possible to rent our rooms for your own events, seminars and workshops.

Art/ Painting Room /Pedagogy and Therapy

We have an Arno Stern-oriented painting room for painting play, expressive painting, soul pictures, art therapy and pedagogy. Group and individual settings take place here. Our painting room is a non-judgemental space for creativity and mindful interaction.

Expressive painting, soul paintings, painting play and art therapy.

“Whoever finds the way to nature and art – also finds the way to himself.”

In our Alegría in Vueltas there is a space for creative work. Accompanied by Lara Jahnke, you can manifest everything you wish and dream of yourself through creative activity. Lara Jahnke is an art and music therapist, seminar leader for expressive painting and intuitive painting. Especially soul painting in connection with meditation and conversations are your access to your own creative power and healing.

Heart circles for women

Together we experience an open exchange about existing heart issues. After a sound meditation we go into the painting room and bring inner images to the outside. A common round of contemplation allows us to take a mindful look at the pictures. Accompaniment by Lara Jahnke (art therapist)

Open playroom

We have about 100 square metres divided into three rooms with a play room with Montessori materials, two reading and relaxation rooms and a painting room, which is also designed as a workshop or theme room. During open play time, children and parents work together on the materials or in the painting room. Our concern is to create community and not the separation of children and adults. Through attentiveness, silence, observation and joy, children and adults meet each other, sometimes on completely new levels.


On Wednesday and Sunday there are workshops on various nature education topics, storytelling, art, music etc. For example: Spanish for children, making shoes, arts and crafts, children’s yoga, Kamishibai workshop, plant workshop, outdoor activities, games with sand and stones, circus activities, etc.

Freediving / Apnoea Diving

Apnoea / free diving is the most original form of diving with only one breath without technical aids. Whales and dolphins have developed this to perfection, but we humans also possess the “mammalian diving reflex” and can move amazingly long and deep under water with a little practice. We dive into the broad topic of breathing, relaxation and trust in the water, theoretically and practically. A first step to feeling safe in the water. Contact Roland: 0034 634303077


Hero’s Journey

Hero’s Journeys is a method that we have developed from the experiences of mask archetype work, ritual play, systemic constellation work and the classic hero’s journey according to Vogler and Campbell. It offers the possibility to experience issues and to take a new perspective with the help of the representatives. Options and consequences for action can be experienced and implemented. I.e.: The aim is to develop solutions that expand the future scope of action. The hero/inner journey takes place in the room and outside and is led by Ilka.

Lectures / Theme evenings

In cooperation with various providers on La Gomera we offer evening events on different topics. Marine and natural history lectures with Volker Boelke from Gomera Vive, educational and secular theme evenings: unschooling, media literacy, Montessori, permaculture, etc.

Unschooling / Free Learning / Homeschooling

Lara Jahnke is, among other things, a lecturer for institution-free education and natural learning. You are welcome to ask for advice on this topic. Arrange a personal appointment.

Blattwerk Nature Education and Nature Therapy Seminars

We would like to invite you to discover this island in a special way. For this purpose, we have developed 4 seminars of nature encounter, which show the special presence of Gomera’s natural power and enable us to have completely different experiences than in Germany near the metropolis of Berlin.

It is possible to attend these seminars as modules of the Blattwerk trainings “Holistic Nature Education” and “Process-oriented Nature Therapy” or to book them individually (220,-€) or as a complete package, which means you book all 4 Gomera seminars for the price of 800,-€ (excluding arrival/departure, accommodation, meals).

Here are the dates 2022 and 2023 on La Gomera and our topics:

The clarity of the sea and its beings
The primeval forest and the power of the unconscious
The volcano in us – experiencing anger as a living force
Sand and stones – the power of symbolising and transforming
