Área: UtahSouth of Spanish Fork, Utah, in a semi rural environment, we have 15 acres (5.85 hectares) upon which sit a gorgeous temple, a 6,000 sq foot residential facility with comfortable double rooms, two outdoor stages, a large covered pavilion, and amenities for parrots, peacocks, llamas and 3 small cows. There is a 200,000 gallon lake with waterfall from which we gravity feed one acre under cultivation. The acreage produces chemical free tomatoes, eggplants, varieties of chilis, squash, melons, corn, cabbage, broccoli, green peppers, potatoes and flowers for worship. We sponsor lots of festivals and twice or thrice yearly yoga retreats. March of 2013 we hosted the Festival of Colors (Holi) which attracted 67,000 attendees over a 2 day period. The event was photographed by Reuters International & picked up by MSNBC, CNN International, Times of India, Hindustan Times, the Republic in Italy, as well as news outlets all over the world. The best video from 2011 by Evan Carpenter, was on the home page of Youtube for 1/2 a day. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqsRFAJVN9c." In 2012 Devin Graham did one called "World's Biggest Color Party" (1.4 million to date)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hh-o5g4tLVE and Goodline films another called "Holi Festival 2012." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HltruTVcTYE Other annual events are the Llama Fest in July, Krishna Janmastami in August, Festival of India in September, Diwali, Festival of Lights in October, & Shiva Ratri in February. We teach yoga five days a week and have classes on the Bhagavad Gita 6am and 6pm as well as daily kirtans. These programs are optional for the guests, though the more they attend, the more they will be informed about the 5,000 year old spiritual culture and practices of "Bhakti Yoga". The only mandatory program occurs every Sunday 5 pm - 7 pm when there is an open house with kirtan, vegetarian feast, and spiritual discourse illustrated by power point presentation. This is an extremely 'seeker friendly' weekly event and guests should attend. As of June 2013, there have been 130,000 downloads of the Itunes Podcasts under the heading "Krishna Temple Sunday Talks" Additionally, Jai Krishna Das, who leads the chanting most Sundays, is a world class kirtan leader. We ask that guests arrive punctually. There are a gift store on the property and salad bar with hot buffet open (11 am - 7 pm) 7 days a week. We do a lot of cooking for those interested to learn. Wireless internet everywhere. We could accommodate up to 12 single adults and couples FOR A MINIMUM STAY OF FOURTEEN DAYS. There is no maximum time to stay & in fact the longer the better, providing the chemistry is right. Unmarried couples stay in another building than the main ashram but the rooms are nice. We are set up mainly for singles and couples. We expect 4 hours of diligent work 6 days a week in exchange for room and board. We do not support wwoofers getting part time jobs in the area while living and working on the farm. Medical or health insurance is a plus in the unlikely event of an accident. Local sights are Sundance Resort, Bridal Veil Falls, the Alpine Loop, hiking trails in Hobble Creek, Diamond Fork Hot Springs, Provo Canyon etc. Llamas are available for some treks in summer. We are the number one llama rental facility in Utah with 35 animals on the property. We are vegetarian and allow no meat, drugs, alcohol, or cigarettes on the property. If you are looking to break a smoking, drug, or alcohol habit by sojourning here, know up front you will simply be a disturbance in the community. We do not take caffeinated tea or coffee and prefer that visitors go off site for consumption of these beverages. Prospective visitors may also note that we probably do not fit many preconceptions about sustainability and a retreat like atmosphere. There are times of incredible peacefulness and relaxation, and other times, especially around festivals, when it can get intense. Ours is a practical path of bhakti (devotion), keeping God in the center of our activities. Sometimes that lends itself to peacefulness, introspection, and an educational atmosphere. Other times there is more emphasis on getting things done in a certain time frame. Sometimes we are absorbed in the gardening and sustainability and other times we throw ourselves into a special event. Almost everyone who comes here notes, "It is not what I expected." Most of the time that is a good thing and guests stay longer than they anticipated. But occasionally after a day or two people run for the hills because they were not flexible enough or willing enough to "Let go, and let God." Guests are requested to respect the spiritual atmosphere of peacefulness and self control, which can be disrupted by immodest dress, public groping (friendly hugs fine), and late night loudness. We like to know as much about you as possible to ensure your stay here will be a comfortable and rewarding one. Please keep your profile full and up to date and mention where else you may have woofed or done help exchange. Outside work March thru November, and in winter more limited outdoor work, but lots to do indoors with the buffet and gift store. The closest major airport is Salt Lake City (65 miles away) & the closest bus and train stations are in Provo, 6 miles away & an easy pick up. There is an airport in Provo serviced by Frontier Air Lines. We pick up from Provo bus, train station, or Provo airport during the day only. Schedule flights and driving to arrive in daylight as we are hard to find after dark. If you come by air to Salt Lake City we suggest staying one or two days at the SLC Center, & getting a ride down to Spanish Fork. We purchased in July 2011 a school and 4 acres land near downtown Salt Lake City. There is about 1/2 acre there under cultivation with plans for more. We plant fruit trees, tomatoes, chilis, squash, spinach, corn, beans, peas etc. Accommodations are basic. there is a mandatory service every Sat nite at 7:00 pm, which is well attended by the public.. There are yoga classes Mon thru Saturday at 6 pm, taught by a variety of teachers. All city amenities (Downtown Library, Gateway Center, University of Utah, Temple Square, Ski Resorts) are within easy access. Labor Day Weekend 2013, we hosted our third "Great Salt Lake Yoga Fest" at the Salt Lake Center, offering more than 100 different yoga classes by 45 different teachers, many from out of state. Wwoofers, helpers, and workawaers are welcome to divide their time between the Spanish Fork & Salt Lake Centers.
Área: OaxacaMy work centers around permaculture, organic seeds, I would like to share the experience of living in the country side of Oaxaca, share the food production out of the garden, learn and teach about sustainable organic gardening. Iam in the process of setting up the infrastructure for thi project. So, the benefit for workawayers will also be to participate in a project which their can co-design by putting in the own ideas. Pachamama Organica offers workawayers the possibilty to enjoy peace and silence in a rural environment away from contamination and noise. This Project is also about self-experience. I will set up permaculture workshops for external paying guests so the workawayers can profit also from learning how I teach.
Área: LombardyWe're an Italian family who's interested in hosting AN ENGLISH MOTHER TONGUE GIRL WHO IS STUDYING TO WORK WITH CHILDREN, VERY TALKATIVE AND SMILING, who loves to play and speak with children and helps our daughter (and me) to improve our English. Her job will consist in playing with my daughter Sofia SPEAKING ONLY ENGLISH. I'd like to host a girl who studied or are studying to be a teacher at the primary school or something similar, because I think she surely knows how to push Sofia to speak English having fun and how to correct Sofia's mistakes in English. We're a family of 3, my husband and I are in our early 40's and our daughter Sofia is 6. We live in a 2-story house, upstairs to my parents, who're very helpful taking care of Sofia. I'm a registered counselor, my husband is an engineer working in his own company. Before we became a family we both lived abroad and we got married in California. We live in Cremona, a 80.000 people town in north Italy, the world capital of violin making. By train or car we can easily reach Milan, Verona, Mantova, Parma, Piacenza, the Garda lake, Venice, Bologna and Florence. Alpine region is easily reachable for skiing or trekking. We are also members of a large country club. A bike is always available and the train statione is 10 minutes far from our house. Our apartment has two bathrooms and two bedrooms (till now Sofia has always slept with us while we were hosting an au-pair, so she could have her own bedroom and bathroom). If possible in summer during our holidays we would like to take the au-pair with us for a few days to our seaside houses in Sardinia island or Sanremo (Italian riviera, close to the French riviera). We could speak about that later, more close to summer. About Sofia: she loves to go out to play, to drow and to create jewels and objects with paper and glue. She is very much independent and comunicative. She is already used to the company of English speaking people, as we have had English speaking aupairs (who didn’t speak any Italian) and a nanny from Filippines (who speaks English). Sofia understands well and speaks some English, and she gets along very well with English speaking au-pairs. What I expect from an au-pair is her to play with Sofia and correct her in English. I'd like to host a calm, responible, smiling, flexible and tidy person.
