Dome Building Workshop
Creating Sacred Living Spaces
February 27th to March 10th 2020
We welcome you to our sacred space. We are very happy for your interest in making sustainable living a reality. We are excited to welcome you in this ancient Mayan land and we hope you receive more than what you came seeking.
We are thrilled to have you in the jungle and we look forward a wonderful time together. After hosting a few workshops with our friends from DomeGaia we've learnt a lot on how to offer you a better and deeper experience for your study of how to build an aircreate dome.
This year Nah Ku is offering a 7 days Dome Finishing Community Practice after the 10 day workshop for the ones wanting to learn more in a community style environment.

COMMUNITY BUILDING PRACTICE
This year is a special year with Domegaia as we are building our 3rd Dome, now with more experience and better practice we can share with you a few extra tips for the finishing touches of your dome.
COMMUNITY BUILDING PRACTICE | March 11th to 17th
The Nah Ku family invites you to come early or stay later and enjoy the beauty and culture of the region, learn beyond the workshop and be part of the finishing touches while enjoying nature and the community of Nah Ku.
We are offering a 50% off in Accommodation and asking only for $100usd for food contributions for the extra 7 days. ( If you're staying less days we can adjust the food contribution)
During the 10-day workshop, we build a basic dome structure this does not include plumbing, electrical, furniture or finished flooring. We do our best to complete the Aircrete dome during the workshop; however, there is no guarantee of completion as there are unexpected obstacles like weather conditions that may prevent from completion.
Nah Ku is opening an extra 7 days for students of the workshop to stay and deepen their Aircrete studies and put into practice what you have learned in the days previous. We are happy to share space with you and show you how we finish our Mayan Domes:
Practice Building Aircrete furniture (bed, counters, shelves, etc)
Electrical, Plumbing and finishing touches
Special Mayan Plaster called Chukum will be applied to the dome
- Food is made communally and all participants will have to take a shift in the kitchen for dinner. ( Breakfast and Lunch we have a bit more help) but we encourage communal participation.

-The $100usd food contribution includes a Vegetarian Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner (salads, fruits, seeds, soups, main veg dishes) if your diet requires meat you'll have to supply your own meat.
