Purpose & Ethos
“When you are in touch with the dimension of being within yourself – and being in touch with it is your natural state, not some miraculous achievement – all your actions and relationships will reflect the oneness with all life that you sense deep within. This is love.”
We live in a time of exceptional challenge in all areas of life. The need for individuals, organisations and nations to move towards greater harmony within themselves, with others and the more than human world has perhaps never been greater. Our primary aim is to support these transformations through the programmes and services we offer.
We are passionate about creating atmospheres in which people feel at ease and inspired to explore what truly matters to their hearts. To draw on natures ingenuity can be a powerful catalyst in helping individuals, teams and organisations move toward greater clarity, efficiency and wisdom. The desire to live a happy and fullfilled life is common sense. And it is totally possible!
FOUNDER & DIRECTOR - Korbi Hort
As qualified guide and group facilitator Korbi draws on over 20 years of experience and has safely led thousands of people through transformative learning experiences. He works with a carefully selected team of guides and facilitators.
Korbi is passionate about creating atmospheres and spaces in which people feel at ease and inspired to explore what truly matters to their hearts. His focus as facilitator and coach is to help people experience, understand and appreciate the completeness and contentment of our natural state of being.
He holds a Masters degree in Sustainability and Responsibility from Ashridge Business School and a BSc in Outdoor Education from Edinburgh University. Korbi lives in his cherished Sant Aniol valley in Catalunya, Spain.
HOSTING & COMMUNICATION - Anna Carceller Roca
Anna lives here at Pont de Valenti and supports the project in marketing, booking and hands-on hosting of guests. In our School of Youth programme she is also part of the facilitation team.
In her work she love to create emotionally safe spaces, since she sees them as essential for people to express themselves openly. It is in such authentic encounters, that she herself feels uplifted, nourished and inspired. It is from this place of caring that Anna supports our groups during programmes.
As a practicing ceramist and lover of music she is a fountain for creative inspiration and artful expression.
Curator & Facilitator - Luciano Gutierrez
In 2017 Luciano arrived at Pont de Valenti, and feels at home in these mountains ever since. Here, all the experiences and skills aquired along the way of life have found their purpose: from studying performing arts at University, his love for curating music and dance events, facilitating educational programmes, to being a chef – following in the footsteps of a long family tradition of gastronomy and hospitality.
His artistic work both, as actor and dancer, was always related to body awareness and movement – learning how playful interaction with others allows us to floursih in dance and song naturally.
As a lover of this valley, its silence, stability and beauty, is an ever present experience here. Luciano feels grateful to share and accompany people this experiencing here.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
We had a wonderful time at Korbi’s place for our autumn nature quest. Korbi was very helpful, generous and reliable in organising all our logistics so we could really focus on hosting our group. The little café provided a great and homey space for our breaks. The food was amazing. We had a beautiful time! A magical place!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY…
I have worked with Korbi for seven years. He is a deeply caring, creative and knowledgable guide and facilitator, and he knows the Sant Aniol valley – a profoundly special place – like nobody else. An adventure through the valley, supported by Korbi, will stay with you for a very long time.
