Area: North CarolinaWe live in a remote forest location in the Appalachian Mountain region of North Carolina with four dogs, two cats, and eleven fish. This space also holds our retreat center where we hold teachings such as those based on the Native American medicine wheel, Emotional Integration, Shamanic Breath work, Holokinetic Health, and more. It is our hope that these teachings in a beautiful setting in nature will help to empower us all to remember who we are and live from that space. We need volunteers from May20th-28th to help us with our Spring projects such as raising our tepees back up, gardening, dry rock stacking around the tipi and a fire pit, and continuing on our earth building using strawbales. This project may run into June, and we will post that here as soon as we know for sure. We can not take in anyone who smokes or does drugs. Also, if you are allergic to animals, you will not want to come here. If you have animals, we will not be able to take them in because of our own. Thank you for your consideration in coming to help us grow Sacred Soul Retreat! If you're interested, please contact us, and we will send a few questions we have to get to know you a bit better to make sure we are all a good fit. Cheers!
Area: SicilyOrange season is coming! We will be pleased to host you from: March and on. Updates for hosting availability will come weekly depending on requests! Previous periods already booked, sorry! The original arab channel used for irrigation gives the name to our project, it carries water and gives life with it, from it's presence and from it's sound comes out our aim. For us it's a conscious choice of life. Blessed by the welcoming presence of the river and by the changing times of nature. A choice of sharing places and elements. A tiny group of people that looking outside and inside of themselves, choose the land as a space for confrontation. A place for sperimentation between new and old techniques of Permaculture and natural/organic farming. There are moments of hard work, of quietness, heavy summer sweat, soft music and long sleeps. We need Help and we give Help in our everyday life teaching and learning, harvesting and sharing, farming and living. Accomodation is provided in the "Hosts trailer" or in tents. Food is mixed, we're not vegans nor prettly vegetarians,but those of us eating meat, get it just from nearby farmers. Our products are 100% natural/organic but we buy some products that we cannot produce from local market and local producers. Must remind that our project started in June 2011 from an abandoned orange orchard and we're slowly changing it into our little organic paradise..but since we are not a farm and we basically don't make real profit out of our work but just have enough for self consumption (except in orange picking time from beginning of January until end of March when we get some income for our all year surviving and paying the taxes..), we have a shared money box from wich we pay the food we cannot produce, bills and so on, and a small contribution to the common expenses (about 3euro per day) is welcomed. Hopefully one day we won't need it anymore becouse we would be producing so much that we might be self sufficient and using our extra to buy things we can't make. At the moment living here is Salvo, one of the founders wich buy the land and works permanently here, Deina, a thoughtful antropologist with love for the land and our little son Nuri, born in december 2013! Time to time other friends come to stay for a while, help and support our stay..you'll probably meet Sara or Margherita (other co-founders of the project), Pietro our musician, Derek a lovely irish expat, Angelo, Rino, Valentina, Costanza, and many more... Hope to see you soon! It's all about water and leaves. p.s. Other than humans, we live with dogs, cats, chickens, ducks and a horse, so be aware if you have allergies or terrible fears of those above! p.p.s. Specially welcomed experts in building with wood and other natural materials, horse keepers, good cookers, pruning experts and so on. p.p.p.s!! Please bring seeds of your local vegetables and trees if you can to increase the bio-diversity of our place!
