WHO WE ARE

Aluantu in the tongue of the native Mapuche people, means ‘connecting to the light within.’ 

We are a holistic learning and healing center nestled in the Andes mountains in the Lake Region of northern Patagonia, Chile. At Aluantu we are dedicated to learning and personal transformation through the experience of connection to nature, to others and to the light within ourselves.          

Our mission is to create a space in which the rediscovery of the natural world and the spiritual journey inward can be facilitated in a safe and nurturing environment. We are founded on the belief that we are all part of an interconnected web of life and that each one of us contains an inner light that has the potential to illuminate when supported by a healthy, social, spiritual and natural environment.                      

We strive to bring you the highest quality learning experiences, facilitated by exceptional teachers, masters and healers, who are all contributing to our collective shift towards a life enhancing reality.We have the unprecedented opportunity to collaborate in the greatest learning experience of all time, supporting each other to transform, connect and evolve as one.

We invite you to embark on a journey with us in the celebration of human spirit.

Gregory W. Locke
Gregory W. LockeFounder
Greg, our personal development coach, received his formal education in Communication and Social Design in Europe and the United States. After traveling extensively on a lifelong quest for meaning and truth, Greg had the realization that all life is interconnected. Our real journey occurs within us, when we open our hearts and allow Spirit to flow through. We embody our highest expression of spirit through our acts of service to others.

Focused and dedicated for the last 7 years, Greg is inspired to share his process of awakening and transformation with others and has created a program called ‘Spiral of Light. Spiral of Light focuses on the transition from an ego-driven experience to a present, heart-centered experience. Greg’s warm-hearted and direct approach to inner transformation make his self-discovery workshops powerful, memorable and fun!
