    Description

    ***NEWS*** we are actually looking for someone ho is willing and able to babysit a 4 months old cute boy now and then. other things to do: general housework and gardening jobs. please contact us soon if you feel like coming.

    HELLO!
    We welcome openminded volunteers who are interested in spirituality and in an ecological, holistic way of life and who already have some experience in one or more of the following domains: ORGANIC GARDENING, WOODWORK, OLIVE TREES / FRUIT TREES, PERMACULTURE, KEEPING BEES (useful only in spring), CREATION OF WEBSITES, COOKING, CLEANING AND KEEPING EVERYTHING NICE.

    ! Please CONTACT US ONLY IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCED IN COUNTRY LIFE, IF YOU LOVE CLOSE CONTACT WITH THE ELEMENTS, IF YOU ARE BETWEEN 23 and 60 YEARS OLD, IF YOU CAN STAY MINIMUM 4 WEEKs as we get a lot of requests and please: if you write us POINT OUT WHAT INTERESTS, SKILLS AND EXPERIENCES YOU HAVE that fit to our centre so that we can understand whether it would make sense for you to come or not. Please don't contact us if you feel emotionally imbalanced and unstable. Thanks for understanding!

    We are running an openminded and openhearted small spiritual and ecological centre based on the mystic path of Sufism (The Inayati Order - A Sufi path of spiritual liberty). The centre is situated in a wonderful natural place close to the most beautiful sea (one hour walk) and to a little beautiful village (half hour walk). This area of Sardinia is characteristic for its fantastic granite rock formations and evergreen lush vegetation. The piece of land where our centre is situated encompasses a quiet valley, rich with lush vegetation and water. We actually want to focus even more on the ecological side of our project here, that's why we are curious to get to know workawayers who are experienced in bee keeping, permaculture etc.

    Roshan is a meditation teacher and retreat guide. She usually offers morning meditation sesssions (free of charge), sometimes music, singing, dancing, meditation practises in the evening.
    This year we are having a kind of sabattical year here, there are only very few events, visitors and volunteers. It's more a retreat atmosphere. So if you don't mind being alone quite some time during the day, if you do not always feel the need of others around you, if you are self-reliant, this might be the right experience for you.

    The island of Sardinia is amazing, the part where we are is very beautiful. There are many sunny days, sometimes rain and quite some wind. In winter it can get quite cold, in summer it ca be really hot. You should be robust, you should like the elements and a simple life style.
    We usually offer accomodation in tents, when available also in the house, in a small wooden hut or caravan. Offseason always house, hut or caravan.

    We try to answer to everybody. Usally if we are interested we will answer you quickly. But if for any reason we might not be interested, we might not answer, because we get many requests and often we are very busy.

    Thank you :)
    Roshan and Javid

    Help

    Usually we offer two possibilities for volunteering: If you help for 5 hours the day accommodation and food are free, if you help for 3 hours no food is provided. Of course you have your days off, but it might not always be Saturday and Sunday.
    There are different kinds of jobs to be done, most of them outside in the fresh air. Some work is rather physical, like building stone walls, clearing paths, cutting dead wood, getting thorns out of the ground, weeding, gardening. Quite often things need to be fixed. We also plan to make a driveway out of nature stones.
    We are also grateful for help in the kitchen and the house, with making bread and so on.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You can lend our bikes and/or go hiking a lot in the surroundings, you can get to the beautiful sea (one hour walk or 10 mns drive), to the nearest village (half an hour walk), you can visit some ancient places of power (about 20 miuntes ride by car, you can get there also by bus plus walking). In summer there are a few festivals in different villages. You can have a busy but nice Italian tourist summer surrounding at the sea or in the village and then always come back to this quiet beautiful space in nature here to experience peace and solitude.
    The ancient folks of this island must have been very wise to build thousands of impressive temples, tombs and so on, most of them still radiating a lot of energy, some of them are charged with intense healing power.
    The close contact with nature can be a very healing and refreshing experience.
    Please bring with you:
    - shoes with good soles (profile)
    - from spring to autumn: mosquito protection (there are usually not many but a few can be enough to annoy people)
    - only organic washing products (shampoo, toothpaste, detergents of any kind)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunites

    If you are interested in a specific Italian way of life this might not be the right place for you. We are not from Italiy but originally from Germany, though Roshan has settled in Sardinia a long time ago. She knows and loves the culture and the whole island. Nevertheless you can explore the beautiful and interesting surroundings, we will give you information and road and walking path descriptions. Especially those who are interested in meditation, in spirituality, in a simple ecological life style and in experiencing a strong and pure nature surrounding will benefit from staying here and learn something about these matters, from A like awareness to Z like ... zucchini!
