Casa Amorata Experience
Join us for the experience of
any years ago, I decided to
"let slip the surly bonds of earth"
to become, for the most part homefree.
I gave all of my possessions away
those long days ago, erasing everything
from my life that might hold me
back in any way. And to this day,
I still don't have so much as a
pillow or a towel. In essence, I
moved away then from everything
that we usually consider to be safe
and secure in this world: home and
Why did I do this?
Because I decided to devote my life
to the idea of creating the very
best memories possible - both for
me and for those around me. And
it has been a magical time...
I have traveled non-stop all over
the world, accepted all invitations,
and I have danced with angels on
My whole being
on earth filled with beauty, devoted
to art, music, philosophy, and the
creation and exploration of incredible
ideas...has been caught up
in this exhilaration of adventure,
of living in the wind, and of accepting
all invitations. Stretched out before
me as far as I can see is a vista,
a horizon, something that calls
me away, something that has ever
been stronger than my longing to
stay. This has been my life and
my joy, and continues today unabated.
And... at the same time, I have
been dreaming about a different
kind of home, a place somewhere
on earth that is filled with beauty,
devoted to art, music, philosophy,
and the creation and exploration
of incredible ideas... a space where
like-minded people can come together
to express themselves authentically
and make true connections.
A place naturally called
My idea was that it would be
full of ideas and creativity...
it would be a home for artists and
thinkers, writers and painters...
everything would be provided for
- food and wine and salsa dancing. Women of beauty
(the transcendent kind of beauty) would be
a very large part of filling Casa
Amorata with life and love.
I have scouted for locations
all over the globe. Berlin, Oslo, Bucharest, Split, Medellin,
London, Barcelona, Sofia, Amsterdam,
Panama City, Austin, Monterrey, Warsaw,
...a gypsy caravan, a moveable feast,
a safe haven for wayward girls and
urban gypsies of all kinds... All of these cities have a special draw to me, cities of
life, of music and festivals, vitality
and quintessential female energy
everywhere, flowing from the balconies,
bars, coffeeshops and terraces,
and into the streets.
Years ago, Montreal provided
the perfect soil on which we founded
the first ever Casa Amorata.
Once only a dream, a vision, and
in Montreal, it became very real. Since then, Casa Amorata has been located in Austin, Las Vegas, London, Panama, Bucharest, and Montreal again.
Casa Amorata was
created from scratch with only our
minds and hearts. And
right from the beginning, it has
been exactly what I imagined...
The Casa Amorata has been filled
with luminous and inspiring men
and women. And it only gets better and better.
And yet, the Casa Amorata is
not bounded at all by a mere location.
Casa Amorata is more of a concept
than a place, a gypsy caravan, a
moveable feast, a safe haven for
wayward girls and urban gypsies
of all kinds...
"a place for hipsters, rockers,
fashion victims and today's downtown
we freely invite men of sincerity
who are lovers of life and women
who are feminine, affectionate,
generous, inspiring and who make
us laugh (in Casa Amorata we meet
and misbehave with unabashed enthusiasm!),
it is more than just a an excellent
place to spend time... it is completely
designed around the concept of increasing
our learning and making the world
a better place.
There are four Agreements of Casa Amorata
must live by to keep the space
sacred and aligned with our vision:
1) Ease and Delight
3) Curiosity and Empathy
4) Invitations Only
is a gypsy caravan and it moves
with us. It is a space we create
wherever we go, where people we
love are invited to express themselves
authentically and fully. We create
a space, and they fill it up with
their ideas, their inspiration,
their energy, their art ... a space
to which ephemera of all kinds are
brought and celebrated. Then we
break camp, pack our single suitcase,
and move on to the next location.
All we leave and are left with
are the most excellent of memories...
