A Living Laboratory for Regeneration

Brave Earth (Tierra Valiente) is a burgeoning community, regenerative farm, and healing arts center based in northern Costa Rica. Here amidst the jungle, thermal pools and cloud forest, we are exploring new and ancient ways of living.

The term "regenerative" describes processes that restore, renew or revitalize their own sources of energy and materials. Regenerative design uses whole systems thinking to create resilient and equitable systems that integrate the needs of society with the integrity of Nature.

We believe it requires bravery to step out of the traditional constructs of globalized monoculture and step into alternative systems grounded in the reality of what is possible when we align ourselves to the wisdom and power of Nature.

Our Internal Mantra

Bhu Hum

Sanskrit for “Earth I Am”. This is our internal mantra and reminder of who we are and where we come from. To activate our roots as children of Gaia and remind us of our responsibility to live symbiotically with the source from which all life originates.

Rainforest Jungle Jewel


Our living lab is located about 2.5 hours northeast from San Jose. We have created an 80-acre commons nestled between the Children’s Eternal Rainforest, one of the largest protected regions of rainforest north of the Amazon and Volcano Arenal, which many consider to be the spiritual center of Costa Rica.

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.
