A getaway' is least likely to describe the Butterfly Valley.
The rough sea, which sometimes makes it impossible to reach the valley and the high cliffs isolate it from the rest of the world, The Butterfly Valley is the meeting point for artists, travellers and nature lovers from all over the world.
As you walk into the Valley, you get away from the sounds of waves and start hearing the waterfall flowing down. The creek wants to reach the sea; but usually disappears into the earth... You are now in the canyon of butterflies, surrounded by high cliffs and you cannot see the peaks without forcing your neck.
But the Valley offers more than its authentic geographical structure.
For the guests, this is the place for vacation, recreation, relaxation or simply a break from the city life.
The amazing and provocative beauty of the Valley, has inspired a project to Valley lovers, which it has been waiting for.
The purposes and summary of this project are stated below:
-The authentic structure of the Valley can serve as a lab and a research area, especially for botanists and entomologists. It has a lot to teach us.
-This modern world that humanity has established with intellect and skills, has developed against nature. Modern people have been estranged; have forgotten the roots buried deep in nature; have feared it and struggled with it and finally have been maladjusted. We want to get together to discuss and find ways to live in harmony with this organism, which created us; we want to figure out some ways and practice these to reconnect with the nature and thus ourselves. This is our purpose.
One will regain the health and peace in body-mind and soul. One will feel the moment and its existence. One will overcome its fears and anxieties. One will know one's self. We will be practicing the ancient teachings, such as shamanism, zen and soufism and try to apply these through art, philosophy, healing and self developement.
Some call it "Butterfly School Project". Cocoons will break and butterflies will fly. The metamorphosis of the butterfly is an inspiration for transpersonal development and transcendence.
If you want to experience this transformation, let's meet here, in the Butterfly Valley.
