New media (Internet and social media) allow a new way to communicate and share information (images, words, sounds) through the creation, publication, distribution and consumption of content in innovative ways.
We are a virtual and physical place. We promote integral health, empathy and social relationships telling news with fantasy and happiness.
We are a space for social experimentation, production, interaction, spontaneity, participation, creation, welfare, promotion of integral health and more…
We are storytellers. Why we use letters and fantasy? Because LETTERS have the ability to CREATE and scientific studies show that if people read FANTASY, stress levels are considerably reduced.
Why News and why My Citadel? News, understood as the dissemination of content/new knowledge, or as defined by the Spanish Real Academy: “Notion or knowledge about a matter or issue”. My Citadel, understood as a mental and physical place for integral transformation.
We offer real content transformed into fantasy to keep the public informed without stress. We are a project of life that looks to change the world from each person. Our content reflects experiences that promote mental health.
We make a trip that takes us back to childhood, exploring new solutions to our problems. Mind and body are one, but we have forgotten it, that´s why we start having problems to relate and communicate. The main reason of this project of life is to put them together as one.
We offer people the opportunity to enjoy the content in any place or time, allowing the interaction with comments, creative participation, community formation, search of improvements in the inner world of each person, broadening horizons giving people the opportunity to write, paint, inform, educate, promote.
Being the space where people can exploit their talents through fantasy as a creative process. Being a fun place to plan and create a project of life with integral services for the body, soul and mind.
