Finca Sagrada invites you to a

Starseeders Encounter

Vilcabamba, Ecuador - May 19 to July 14, 2024

A gathering of ideas and creativity in Ecuador, focused around the Shift in Consciousness happening across the planet. 

Offering Astrogeomancy and Biodynamic Agriculture courses, Summer Solstice celebrations, ceremonies and ancient wisdom shared by indigenous elders, drumming circles, live music, star walks, round table discussions for the New World, indigenous travel, trips to the Amazon and more.

Why Starseeders?

At Finca Sagrada we identify ourselves as Guardians of a Sacred Space. The elders from the Kogi tradition have baptised Finca Sagrada as Sharua, literally "The place where the Stars were Seeded on Earth". 

Starseeding also refers to the alchemical union of Heaven and Earth sought by astrogeomantic and biodynamic practices implemented throughout Finca Sagrada.

About Finca Sagrada

Finca Sagrada is an Intentional Community and a Center for Integrative Thought. For 15 years it has been a Biodynamic Farm. The place is a magical mini valley of astonishing beauty.

Finca Sagrada has been designated as Sacred Land, an ancient ceremonial place, considered a portal to higher realms, consecrated by Kogi Mamos (sacred priests), indigenous shamans from the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta (Colombia), who have performed sacred rituals and authorized the building of a structure known as the House of Original Thought, the presence of which deeply enhances visitors' connection to the sacred in nature. 

As keepers of sacred lands, we are in service to Earth and we are living in reciprocity with her bounty. We are building a community that honors the sacredness of the land and supports the diversity of its members, allowing us to experience and practice a flow of generosity, and to find our true roles as co-creators of life on Earth.

Astrogeomancy Courses

Astrogeomancy is a new field of study developed by Xavier de la Huerga. It is a reconstruction of the ancient science that was used to build stone circles, pyramids and cathedrals. It considers the subtle influences of the Cosmos and the Earth in habitable spaces, the environment and the human soul. Astrogeomancy combines exact sciences and the intuitive worldview of our ancestors to develop a capacity to hear and understand the silent voice of the Cosmos.


Xavier de la Huerga (Spain, 1963), creator of Astrogeomancy and founder of the Aula Misterica Institute.

3-day course

A weekend of initiation, including laying out the foundation of an astrogeomantic structure on Finca Sagrada.

9-day course

This is a deep immersion experience with plenty of practical work and advanced teachings. There will be two immersive courses.


Finca Sagrada is a biodynamic farm located in VIlcabamba, a magical valley in Ecuador's southern Andes.

For Inti Raymi (Summer Solstice) Finca Sagrada will host a ceremony with First Nation Taitas Elders and other events. Try to extend your trip to this date.

Star Walks

Astrogeomancy can be integrated with permaculture designs, regenerative agriculture, bio-construction, biodynamic agriculture, Wilhelm Reich's orgon technology or Viktor Schauberger's approach.

Finca Sagrada,  July 7-13, 2024

Biodynamic Farming Workshop

This six-day workshop will complement the Astrogeomancy courses but can be taken separately. You will experience how the members of the Finca Sagrada community steward this sacred site, combining ancient indigenous traditions with modern esoteric knowledge that lead to practical solutions. The workshop will center around biodynamic farming. You will learn how to build vibrant soils that will grow healthy food, and practices such as bio-char, tea sprays and bacterial inoculations, as well as lectures on biodynamic principles. These principles include the biodynamic preparations that open the soil to the spiritual formative forces of the stars and planets, working with the planting calendar, based on the moon moving through the constellations of the zodiac and working with the elemental and nature spirits of the landscape.


Walter Moora (Indonesia, 1949), Biodynamic Farmer for 50+years, has a deep inderstanding of the underlying forces that influence farming.

6-day course

This is a week-long deep immersion experience with plenty of practical work and advanced teachings.

Afternoon lectures

Going deep into the concepts that underly the BIodynamic Practice, according to Rudolph Steiner.

The Milky Way's nightly display at this time of the year in Ecuador features its spectacular central bulge - the Galactic Centre (GC)- high in the sky. The GC is the heart of our Mother Galaxy, our greater home beyond the Earth and the Solar System. It is the source of forces that transcend the physical realm and reach out into the spiritual, inviting you to experience a direct, profound understanding of your relationship to the cosmos. During the astrogeomancy courses and the Inti Raymi celebrations we will hold Star Walks, guided naked-eye astronomy sessions across the deep skies, with astro-mythological storytelling. Being in the middle of nowhere, the night skies at FInca Sagrada are the best for Stargazing.

A trip to the Amazon?

Finca Sagrada is a hub for contacts with communities and activists. From here, you'll be able to arrange a trip to the Amazon jungle directly with the movers and shakers of the Jungle. Ecuador is a world leader in community-managed travel. There are amazing projects where you can support local communities that fight to protect their ancestral lands from oil and industrial agriculture. 


If you want to put your own tent in one of the many beautiful fields of Finca Sagrada, the cost is US$3 per person, which gives you access to the bathrooms and high speed wifi. If you want more comfy options, check these out:
