  • Marker details
  • DescriptionHow can we add value to your life? What feeds your soul and makes you happy?Is service to animals your calling?

    At Shambhala Eco habitat, We Believe Happiness is the Single Most Powerful Tool for Productivity. We Nurture a Culture of Gratitude, Compassion and Appreciation.

    We grow our volunteers, staff, visitors, partners and allies into extraordinary individuals by exposing them to leading edge ideas in human transformation and the holistic care of animals, dedicated to becoming the most extraordinary versions of ourselves and providing the animals with the best care and love available. We are using these new found abilities to help push humanity forward.

    Thanks for stopping by; my name is Isilma and it would be my pleasure to welcome you to our home. As a result of my devotion, service and love for animals, when you work at our property you will learn skills while mastering your daily task list that you can use to be more successful in all 12 dimensions of your life. I am committed to stir your soul and make you mildly to moderately to significantly uncomfortable in any form of mediocrity, to pull you up to your greatness, to hold your hand and move you to the next level of excellence.

    I am very passionate about animals, sustainable living and nature, I am a vegetarian, meditate on a regular basis, spiritual entrepreneur, lightworker, healer, seeker, transformational coach and a giver. Citizen of the world, born on an Island in the Caribbean and lived in South America, South Africa, Europe, Central America and now in North America.

    In my past life I was the co-owner and founder of a commercial boat company that operated between the Caribbean and South America, a holistic healer for humans in Silicon Valley California, and owner/founder of one of the first co-housing communities in the Bay Area. I have a Bachelor's degree in psychology, a Master’s degree in hypnotherapy and Neurolinguistic Programming, and I am also a dream sculpting coach, a certified practitioner in reiki, reconnective healing and sacred geometry, a massage therapist and a certified animal communicator. In my present life I am healing animals while fulfilling my life purpose that has taken over my day to day existence and it is pulling me forward on a path greater than myself. Would you like to join me on this journey of service and transformation?

    I am inviting you to come for a work exchange, also known as voluntourism; it is a type of trade where you exchange your time and abilities for accommodation and food. It is a Collaborative Relationship in which both sides benefit and collect incredible memories and stories. In order to have successful exchanges, it is important that the hosts as well as the volunteers understand this goal and put it into practice, not treating the exchange as simply free accommodation or cheap manual labor - situations that run counter to the purpose.

    We are hosts on different work exchange programs seeking helping hands, loving hearts and courageous souls to assist us with our life purpose of loving, healing, transforming and taking care of our animals as well as the daily upkeep of the property; We are looking for conscious and awakened people who are ready to be of service to animals and take their lives to the next level. Is this you? Or do you know someone who may be interested?

    We will offer you a place to live, food, drinks, utilities as well as use of kayaks, bikes and unlimited entrance to Naples Botanical Gardens. In addition, we also offer occasional safari, city and harbour tours and an extra pampering bonus for those who do a great job, all of which are available via Groupon. If you are around while we take care of the sick animals and baby orphans you will learn how to hand feed them as well as natural healing from herbs and plants and how to use vitamins and supplements for maximum benefit. Also available if you are interested in practicing Spanish or English.

    If you are into self development as we are, we have audiobooks with thousands of hours of wisdom from the best authors of our times and great meditations. We are also members of the thrive community as well as mindvalley full access with unlimited courses on self development and mentors, Unlimited, Ad-Free Streaming on Guia.

    This 4-Step Process Will Help You See if We're a Match

    Step 1: Does Our Mission Excite You?
    The most extraordinary people in the world today don't have a career. What they have is a mission. At Shambhala, our mission is to educate humanity in the proper way of caring and respecting animals as well as Mother Earth.

    “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
    – Nelson Mandela

    Step 2: Do You Align with Our Values?

    Unity
    We fiercely believe in multiculturalism, humanism and environmentalism. We as the human race are in the evolution towards a better future together.

    Transformation
    We are obsessed with personal growth, Transforming individuals and animals into the best versions of themselves is our goal - this holds true for our volunteers, partners and employees, visitors, allies and each animal that lives at our property.

    Envisioning
    In anything we do, we seek to be the best and excellent. We are not afraid to question the status quo and will never settle in our pursuit to push boundaries and create a better future for us, our animals and humanity. Our default approach is innovation, even if it involves a healthy disregard for brules (bullshit rules).

    Love Empathy and Compassion
    If we can create a more compassionate, loving and empathic human beings the world will become a better place. Caring for the animals’ daily needs is our best way to awaken these values in you and the rest of humanity.
