“Michael and Yasmín are amazing people with knowledge in so many fields. You can learn so much from them! The finca has a great view over Bajamar and the sea and it is at walking distance to the center of the village. I totally recommend you volunteer with this permaculture and agroecological project”, Anca, Romania


“Yasmin and Michael are two special individuals with a positive and inspiring vision. I am blessed to know them and share their energy and space. Yasmin is very insightful and knowledgeable in the area of spiritual healing and psychological well-being. I recommend consulting with her, especially if you feel none can understand your challenges.
Thank you Michael and Yasmin!”, Djana Fakhreeva, Russia (http://djanas.weebly.com)


I stayed with Michael Pierre and Yasmin for 4 months (from July to October 2016). There are open-hearted and open-minded people and welcomed my wife, my son and me from the first moment. They shared their resources and knowledge generously. It was a pleasure to work with them in nature and to see the plants grow. I definitely learned something about permaculture and community live. I am looking forward to visit them again. May your project be one of the first shining lights in this endless ocean. :)”

As a long-time student of macrobiotics, permaculture, and sustainable building techniques, I was very interested to learn more of the Luz Serena project in Bajamar.
I was so inspired by Yasmin and Michael, their broad knowledge of a sustainable way of living, and their deep commitment to the health and happiness of the people who come to learn from them and to our shared planet and its resources, that I have decided to do what I can to support this fundamentally-important work and project.
Yasmin and Michael are two remarkable and generous souls who are providing leadership and training for the most vital of issues of our time.” Morgan Jones, USA, 18th of May 2017

“Dear Finca Luz Serena! We would like to express our gratitude for our rather short, but sweet stay in this spectacular place…. deliciously fresh herb salads, sharing stories around the fire, beautiful music & bhajans, and more importantly the inspiring people. We wish you all the best on your permaculture and spiritual journey! We are looking forward to invite you all away to our future permaculture homestead hidden in the Jungle of Malaysia! Love and Light“, Katalin&Shatish, Hungary&Malaysia, March 2017


Dear Yasmín and Michael, and all of Finca Luz Serena family members! These were 2 really colorful weeks I spend with amazing people, I think it was first time in my experience wen I have felt this “tribe”feeling, a community, where everyone shares everything, cares for everyone. Maybe someday I would also like to live in an ecovillage, now I’m not ready for it yet, so I felt more than happy to help people who are willing to do it right now. Thanks for the good vibes and all the knowledge! Paldies! With Love form Latvia” Ulrika (&Valters), Latvia, February 2017


Thank you so much for sharing your energy and creating this beautiful space for a great community. This place is growing on a sea of peace that has been planted with seeds of love. It will blossom in flowers of trust and natural life. At moments of stress, just observe and calmly look back at all the achievements! I will always look back on this short time with loving memories! See you again soon! Love” Dready Teddy (&Thomas), Germany, March 2017
