Area: Kohn KaenIf everybody makes a difference, the world will be different - Owen Geiger Our Project is located in a in a little forest in the northeast of Thailand. Well off the beaten track of tourism we offer an opportunity for everybody to join in a fascinating project where we combine vipassana meditation, yoga, body detox, nutritional guidance, natural building and ecological gardening (especially permaculture) to a system of personal growth and care for nature. We want to show that the path inside and sustainable living can be very lively, joyful and fun. We rock the garden! Our project is deeply rooted in the Thai community, so you can experience an authentic insight into Thai culture and really be part of it. Our teacher is the Abbot of a Monastery in the nearest city and as such, living mindfully and observing the Buddha's teaching is very much at the heart of this project. We have a deep connection with the village monastery and the Buddhist community and enjoy sharing in ceremonies and festivals together. Each day you will have meditation training and Buddhist teachings as well as learning tools to work and live peacefully as a community. Please note; as we work on behalf of the monastery, this is a drug and alcohol free place! Although we are connected with a Buddhist monastery, we don´t want to make anyone into a Buddhist. We try to find a way to live together no matter what one believes, where he comes from, or where he is going. We are looking for people with very open minds, who want to get involved. We are at the beginning of our journey which gives you the opportunity to participate in the makings of a self sustainable community. This is an incredibly exciting time in the growing process and great time to learn! We have basic facilities and provide two (vegetarian) meals a day. Right now we are focused on earthen buildings, creating beautiful gardens and implementing system to improve soil quality and retain waiter. We also have on going mosaic projects and we're more than open to hear your creative ideas. So come join us and get inspired! All open minds are welcome at our project :). We also run regular workshops varying from making your own organic skin care products to raw cooking or harvesting kombucha and we encourage volunteers to share their knowledge with the group too. Now is the time to learn share and grow together. Our place is located 30 Km away from the third largest city of Thailand. The city is a student town with a great night markets and beautiful restaurants set around the lake. Even as large city, its always a surprise if you see tourists. A monastery environment is a very special place to be so if you're interested drop us a message and we'll happily send you more information on our schedule, our responsibilities and how to register your space. Thank you so much and we look forward to getting to know you! May all being be happy

Area: melbourneABOUT OUR ISLAND: Imagine a landscape with no power poles, no sealed roads and no shopping strips. Only 65kms from Melbourne. The 82 residents on the island live under very special circumstances. With no local government, no churches, no mains electricity or water and not even a policeman, self-sufficiency is a necessity. The lack of infrastructural development makes this colony a curious phenomenon lost in time. Beautiful native flora and fauna, rarely seen elsewhere, flourish here. National Park covers approximately 70% of the island and boasts the most dense disease-free koala population in the world, not to mention 260 bird species, 600 plant species and 100 native orchids. It is not only listed in the Register of the National Estate, but has also received the highest rating from the National Trust, a classification reserved exclusively for parts of the physical environment considered to be essential to the heritage of Australia. If you love nature, you’ll love it. Our company is set up to solve 80% of the worlds environmental problems through a biodynamic organic ecosystems. In addition we have women's retreat to help them be free from depression and anxiety and the owner has wrote a book for feminine freedom.
Area: BavariaTwo years ago, we moved with our two children (5 and 7) from England to a small town in hilly Northern Bavaria to get away from the city. We are a bilingual family - our work and life are strongly connected, as we have been partners together in a multi-media company for 17 years, first in England, now here in Germany. Shortly after arrival, we also started a creative charity, which is a lively network for artists and musicians for the rural areas and surrounding towns. This has been so successful that we haven't had time to finish the renovations of our house, and we also need help with the daily running of our family home, because we run so many arts events and creative projects.
