What does a week look like, A Typical Week At Anceu Coliving?
A Typical Week At Anceu Coliving is full of nature, calm, coworking, food aromas, and memories to remember!
Mondays are upcycling dinners (our volunteer, Tano, cooks with the previous week’s leftovers).
Then we met to organize the dinner’s theme and who would cook which night of the week. Everyone would write down the ingredients they needed, and we place an online order.
Dinners are always a great opportunity to share ideas about everyday activities we want to do for the coming week. We do that on Mondays too at the family meeting.
The atmosphere is work-oriented from Monday to Friday since some colivers work remotely for companies with traditional schedules.
During the weekdays, we are involved in many social and community activities. For example, now we work on taking photos for the Inside Out Project and Rural Hackers project at this moment,
Through these projects, we want to make visible the problems arising from the abandonment of rural areas in Spain. We want to create rural opportunities in a sustainable environment with the help of technology and rural and urban communities.
On weekends, the atmosphere is super relaxed. We often have a good brunch together before going to the water falls. Sometimes we go to local places nearby, or just sit home and have fun activities here.
See some activities we have done lately.
Two heads are better than one… Or, let’s say, dozens!
We are very privileged to have in our house so many talented colivers.
It’s always good to listen to what people say and learn from them.
The other days, all of us had a 30 minutes gathering where we discussed how we could improve our website,
We paired in groups and analyzed each part of the website that could be changed or improved. Everybody came up with their suggestions.
Because community is a significant pillar of Anceu, we care what people have to say. For sure, we will consider all of their suggestions and improve along the way.
Cryptocurrency is a hot topic right now and in the years to come. We love to listen to people in what they’re experts in and learn from them.
1. What is cryptocurrency?
2. How many cryptocurrencies are there? What are they worth?
3. Are cryptocurrencies a good investment?
4. What is the future and the potential of cryptocurrency?
5. How can it help to increase economic equality among people?
All of them were answered by our coliver Pablo, an expert in cryptocurrencies who works in the bank sector.
The talk extended more than we had planned.
From people learning for the first time about the crypto world to debates around the topic, everyone enjoyed learning more.
Learning about food
Almost every week, we have the fantastic opportunity to connect with local people around Pontecaldelas and learn about new things.
Last Friday, all colivers decided to visit Nandini, a lovely and unique woman from India who lived for many years in the United States as a chemistry teacher.
Now her goal is to create an open space for people to develop initiatives in the area.
It will be Yoga, Dancing, Food Workshops, Music Festivals, and many others.
She believes in building community and is open to people bringing their ideas and contributing.
This evening, she taught us about the benefits of Ayurvedic Food and the maintenance of health through close attention to balancing one’s life with the correct thinking, diet, lifestyle, and herbs.
Also, she helped us discover our Ayurveda Doshas, which refers to three categories or types of substances that are believed to be present in a person’s body.
Many scholars consider Ayurveda the oldest healing science, and in Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “The Science of Life” Ayurvedic knowledge originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and is often called the “Mother of All Healing.”
