Area: Bayern, Low Bavaria - Niederbayern, Dreiländereck - Three Border CountryWe are an Ashram and Farm community in the beautiful "Bavarian Forest Nature Park" in the heart of Europe. Our project was established in 1979. We offer an opportunity to spend quality time together in a spiritual atmosphere and with great vegetarian cooking. We dance, chant and eat together! We have a unique Narasimha (Vishnu) Temple, which became a place of pilgrimage for the visitors from all around the world. We also have a guest house and 17 ha of land and two cows at the moment. Here you can spend your time in an eco-friendly farm with a cow protection project and a community of some 20 members (singles and families) practicing an ancient bhakti yoga system and living a simple life in harmony with nature and divine principles. We organize numerous spiritual festivals throughout the year and teach spirituality and yoga to people interested. PLUS POINTS OF THIS PROJECT: - You will be right in the heart of the Bavarian Forest - clean air, nature, especially good for treks in sunny Summer and snowy Winter! - You get to join in with a range of activities, be it on our organic farm; our guesthouse; yoga activites; around the temple; or with the cows! - Most of our Workawayers are amazed by the amount of daily food that is on offer! UPCOMING EVENTS - - Festivities full of food, music and entertainment on: Diwali and Govardhana Puja festivals - around 23-27 October. After that we celebrate the traditional Kartik festival throughout October - November. - Also a alternative (but loud) New Years Festival - Help needed from 26th Dec - 7th Jan. To keep the atmosphere sacred and conducive to spiritual growth we restrain from following: - eating non-vegetarian food (meat, fish or eggs) - taking intoxication such as tobacco, alcohol or drugs - illicit sex (sex out of marriage) Our long term vision is to establish self-sufficient project that will also be an important place of pilgrimage in Europe and a tourist attraction in the Bavarian forest for the spiritually minded people.
Area: TuscanyMid-October UPDATE: We are looking for an au pair who ideally speaks both English and some Italian to start October 28. We are a small bilingual family-run music school in Tuscany for children ages newborn to age five (together with their parents) We are mostly looking for help with afterschool childcare for a bilingual second grader and keeping the house running and a relaunch of our website-- as well as organizing, computer time, website updating etc... (Au pairs please apply!) Help around the house, cooking, organizing, tidying is a part of our daily routine. Our days are never the same, so flexibility is a must! Come stay in our simple home in the city center of Florence. Everything you love about Florence is right within walking distance-- many bus lines right in front of our home. NB. Our workawayers stay in a semi-private room with a sofa-bed. Space is limited, so if you need a lot of privacy, this is not the situation for you! We can only accept one workawayer at a time. Non-smoking a must.
