Galeria Luz de la Vida is now Centro Luz de la Vida:
Inauguration Centro Luz de la Vida 23/1 in Competa 14:00 – 18:00
In April the plan was to celebrate 6 years of the gallery Luz de la Vida in Competa. But suddenly life changed for everybody. We were dealing with a virus and a lockdown and all agenda’s changed.
The gallery doors were closed, for a long time…. 2020 is for some or many a year of changes, transformations, transitions or awakenings.
Galeria Luz de la Vida is now: Centro Luz de la Vida. A healing, art and cultural centre. In the middle of the Competa we will celebrate life here and shine our light. It will still be a place where art will be shown but for most a place for meditation, (spiritual) music, lectures, courses, massages, gatherings, (creative) workshops and other inspiring and empowering events. An Oasis where the visitor can experience relaxation and can get inspired. A place where people can meet, exchange and support each other. I intend to collaborate with others to arrange a programme that will be offered here. One of them is Lukasz Wieczorek, a Polish man who lives for some years in the ‘campo’ near Competa. He runs El Coyotee MEDicina. He plays didgeridoo, guides ceremonies, and gives ‘meditation concerts’. He is looking forward to starting meditation and breathing courses and to offer other spiritual events.
In these dynamic, intense times we hope to offer a place where one can find balance, healing and peace. We love to connect and to work with our heart and to use our skills to give quality of life to the time here on earth. We’ll also organize awakening café afternoons. There is so much happening in the world we realize it’s good to create an opportunity to exchange thoughts, and to raise awareness about what is really going on. This space is also usable for others, if you like to collaborate, please contact us.
Inauguration this Saturday 23/1
14:00-18:00; 16:00-17:00 spiritual music/ mediation; 17:00-18:00 tapas & drinks. All on donation base.
Calle Laberinto 15, Competa. Welcome!
EL Coyotee MEDicina

Andalusia foresees that it will lack Covid vaccines after having consumed half of the doses it reserved: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 21/01/2021 18:24
-The vaccination plan against Covid in Andalusia could slow down on Sunday after having consumed 20,000 of the 43,000 doses this week strategic reserve of the vaccine , according to the Andalusian Minister of Health and Families, , who pointed out this Thursday in the Andalusian Parliament Jesús Aguirre .
-Andalusia decided to reserve 20 percent of the doses distributed by the Government in anticipation of possible problems in the supply weekly of vaccines in order to avoid that people who have received the first dose could not receive the second dose in the time established by the laboratory (21 days for Pfizer vaccines and 28 for Moderna vaccines) due to lack of vials due to a hypothetical delivery problem. The recent decision of the laboratory Pfizer to reduce shipments of the unified purchase of vaccines made by the European Union due to changes in the laboratory’s production line, has cut shipments that will not return to normal until the beginning of February.
-The community pledged to administer each week, an 80 percent of the vaccines received extreme that would have already been met, according to Aguirre’s calculations, by consuming all the available vaccines this Sunday, when the teams continue the vaccination plan with the administration of the second dose in residences and health centers.
-Last Monday the weekly shipment of 69,000 doses was reduced by half and the Junta de Andalucía lacks information on the number of vials that will arrive next Monday, sources from the Ministry of Health said.
-Aguirre defended the political decision to have an adequate reserve of roads, despite the reluctance of the central government, which considered it unnecessary.
-Syringe reserve. On the other hand, the counselor reported that his department placed an order for syringes of 0.1 milliliters , necessary to extract the sixth dose from the Pfizer vials, once the laboratory reported the possibility of obtaining six and not five doses of the vaccine due to the possibility of shortage of these syringes. Salud expects to receive a this week new order for these vaccines . All Andalusian health teams and centers currently have syringes of both 0.1 ml and 0.2 thousand. Aguirre said that the problem solved by the 0.1 ml syringe is being able to access a “culillo” of the vials without cutting the volume of the last dose or wasting it, although it is also possible to do so with more difficulty with the larger capacity syringe. The Junta de Andalucía made a reserve of 25 million syringes to ensure the needs of the entire vaccination plan.
-On the other hand, Jesús Aguirre reported that priority will be given among the target groups of the first phases of vaccination to home help workers to prevent them from becoming a vector of transmission of the virus between dependent people.

Juanma Moreno foresees an explosive growth of coronavirus infections in 12 days in Andalusia, asks Andalusians to stay home from eight in the afternoon (not manditory): {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 01/21/2021 18: 57
-The Government denied on Wednesday the advance of the curfew to 8pm, but the Minister of Health, Jesús Aguirre, asks that citizens take this measure “voluntarily and in solidarity”
-The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno , has predicted an “explosive growth of infections” of coronavirus in the next 12 days in the autonomous community that will lead to a greater number of hospitalized, those admitted to intensive care units and of deceased. For this reason, he has appealed to the individual and collective responsibility of Andalusians, whom he has asked to exercise caution.
-Moreno Bonilla has clarified that the third wave of the pandemic will be more complex than the previous two , as revealed by the data on infections, hospitalized and deceased, for which he has clarified that it will be necessary to make a very important effort in very difficult circumstances. That lead, he added, to the perimeter closure and even to the suspension of non-essential activities in the municipalities where the pandemic has raged.
-If the Andalusian government, Bonilla has stated, has made these difficult decisions, it is necessary for citizens to also become aware of the situation. “It is fundamental, essential, that each of us take this third wave that we are suffering very seriously. For what is necessary, he added, that caution is increased, the safety distance is maintained, crowds are avoided and masks are used.
-After referring to the nearly 7,000 infections registered today in Andalusia, the president regretted that the inter-territorial health council, held in Seville, did not accept the theses of most of the autonomous communities that require the Government to approve the curfew or either empowers regional governments to apply it.
-“I cannot understand why the curfew is not approved at eight o’clock in the afternoon,” said the president of the Junta de Andalucía, who has warned the Government chaired by Pedro Sánchez that he is making a serious mistake by not doing so: “We need to take decisions now to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

More than six million people over 70 will receive the covid-19 vaccine starting in March: Health and the communities finalize the age ranges of phase 2 of the plan. They study that it starts with those over 90 years old, followed by those in their 80s and 70s.
After what is being an eventful first stage that includes residences, health workers and large dependents, the next group to be vaccinated will be those over 70 years of age, which if the vaccination rate is maintained, will begin in March. Depending on the arrival of doses and whether new vaccines are approved, the deadline could be advanced or delayed, according to sources familiar with the plan tell EL PAÍS.
In total, there are 6.8 million people over 70 years old in all of Spain (to which we must subtract the around 380,000 already vaccinated who are in residences), who will receive a summons from their health center. Those who cannot move will receive a visit from the nurses. “It will be something very similar to what happens with the flu vaccine,” explain sources from an autonomous community that is preparing the plan.
