staff edith

Edith Mora Castelán

By studying international relations and political science, I’m interested in togetherness and  peace culture, from there comes my passion for ecology and native spirituality. I love working with kids who are especially receptive to natural cycles. Apart from gardening and native culture workshops, I fancy simultaneous interpretation, yoga and paddle (at the right season).
