Área: North Eastern Thailand - Phu RueaWe are a permaculture, yoga and meditation retreat center in Northern Thailand. As the center of our worldwide operations we serve as a thriving example of how the traditional Central Asian Dharma teachings can be expressed through conscious individuals and sustainable communities. At our center practice and study, enjoyment and service are the foundations of daily life. We are located in the beautiful hills of northern Thailand near the famed Mekong river. The center sits on over 25 acres of lush land, with inspiring mountain views, numerous ponds, gardens and forested areas. Our land is cultivated in a sustainable fashion, guided by the principles of permaculture. The stunning natural scenery provides an idyllic setting to practice, study, contemplate and relax. This is a great place to explore northeastern Thailand, be a part of a thriving conscious community and for one's own personal growth and exploration.
Área: Mecklenburg-VorpommernAn old medieval house placed at the habour of a small town at the Baltic Sea gets a step by step refurbishing. I am 50 years old, living on my own, run a Fair Trade hand crafts and souvenir shop in the house which opens from April to October 7 days a week. There are one or two helpers in the shop all year. Besides I run a wholesale for my imports of handcrafts from Guatemala, Nepal and Mexico, an internet shop and another Fair Trade shop in Berlin. For my imports I used to travel a lot for many years (internet makes it less) and know how much you learn by meeting and working with different people. I would like to share my experiences, host you, help you learn another language, show you around my small home town and let you notice how nice it is to live in an area where others book their holidays. For free time there is a piano, a mandoline (has to be fixed), 2 flutes and guitar in the house. Musicians are specially welcome!
Área: New South WalesHi There. I am unable to host till mid November. Going around the world. I'm Adrienne, an easy going person with good values and morals. I am well travelled and enjoy hosting interesting guests. I live on one acre of land, large house and garden, in a quiet suburb. I live alone most of the time and would love some help tiding up the garden. No heavy work. Probably 3 hours a day work required. I have 2 chickens that adore me. I am in the process of getting ready to sell the house. I have a great pool and spa, so chill out time in the summer heat is a must. I do smoke but never inside the house. I work at different hospitals as an anaesthetic nurse. The bus stop is 30-40 min walk or 3 min drive from my house. The bus can get you to the train station. From there it is one hour by train to the city of Sydney. I am able to host a maximum of 2 people for one week.
