Wonder and the POWER OF LIFE ITSELF are among the main impulses that move   VORTEX - The Integration Center.

Our wish is for you to be touched by Nature's engenuity, more specifically by the creativity of the Atlantic Rain Forest, 3000 feet above sea level at the Tropic of Capricorn.

AESTHETIC EXPRESSION

This is my first selection of photos inside the Forest that powers The Integration Center. It is truely majestic and yet it is no more than a glimpse of what Life creates in this area.

THE SOUNDS OF THE NIGHT

Twilight brings a major shift, everyhing changes  in the Forest! It is a totally new atmosphere/spirit and surely one of the most striking features is the sound! Listen closely to this short clip, IT IS AMAZING!

A STAGGERING COMMUNITY in a GIANT FERN

The sheer variety of life forms blows your mind. And this is just in a small part of the trunk of a a "single creature"!

CONTENPLATION SAFARI

This is a unique opportunity to cultivate intimacy with the Forest and witness the Living World beyond names and classifications. 
 

The feeling is more than special when you let yourself walk and get envolved by sonds and smells, colors and presences.

A Living Forest is full of opportunities for every mind to wander off in wonder as instincts of the living body get heightened.
