& Landscape Restoration
Mattie is an idealist at heart and founder of Restore Nature Foundation that aims to bring back forests to the degraded lands of Portugal. He is firmly rooted in nature’s regeneration through methods of Syntropic Farming, Permaculture and Biodynamic agriculture.
His academic path in Cultural Anthropology and Intercultural Communication reaffirmed his strength to connect worlds. He is passionate about sharing hopeful and inspiring regenerative stories with the world. All to serve a life mission to reconnect people with the Earth they are undeniably part of.
In order to do so, connecting to our inner world is key. On his path of inner growth, Mattie felt a clear call to hold space for others and share with the world what has helped him further. Through men’s circles, embodiment practices, breathwork, exciting workshops in nature exploring sexuality in ecology, and of course, regenerative action in the forest he guides groups into deeper layers of themselves and their surroundings. He brings presence, groundedness and a sensitivity for the energy of the group, while interweaving core topics in his life of (deep) ecology, healthy sexuality and spirituality as expressive forms of life energy.
