Cuna means "cradle" in Spanish. The Cuna is a "cradle of life" that is characterized by holistic awareness ( C onciencia) , true community spirit (U nion), closeness to nature ( N aturaleza) and love ( A mor) is fulfilled to all living things.


With the Cuna, spaces and networks are to be created for a new and at the same time very original human existence in the appreciation of all beings and responsible freedom.

We want to support the global change towards sustainable, nature-loving and peaceful ways of life.

>> Live like a tree, single and free,

but brotherly like a forest, that is our longing <<

With the Cuna San Mateo , an ecologically, socially and economically sustainable community of action and living is created with a seminar business, hostel and healing center.

The Cuna is also a holistic center for a solidarity and self-sufficiency network in the San Mateo (Rio Hondo) region.

These 3 elements together result in a holistic center for sustainable development. One of the main goals of the project is to realize a lively and tangible model for a nature-loving and self-sufficient way of life, and also to be specifically committed to sustainable development both regionally and globally.

>> Inner peace is the basis for outer peace,
outer peace promotes inner peace

Holistic peace work

The heart of the Cuna is holistic peace work, which is based on a deep ecological and holistic understanding of the world. The central core value, namely the ethos of peace, is derived from this.

For us, the ethos of peace represents the basis for a coherent inner orientation towards holistic peace. The focus is on a simple core assumption: inner peace is the basis for outer peace, outer peace promotes inner peace.

The Cuna Project association (from which the Cuna San Mateo is supported) is essentially dedicated to researching and implementing holistic peace work on an individual, community and global level. The association also supports the creation of further Cunas and other sustainable projects that promote, guard and share peace.

On our club website
you can immerse yourself deeply in the holistic peace work as we live it in the Cuna.

It is time to create the basis for a healthy, free and livable future on our wonderful planet through conscious being, connection and love for all creatures of nature - for all of us and for the following generations.

You are wholeheartedly invited to get to know the Cuna San Mateo and to participate.

In love and solidarity
