  • Description


    i am a 50 year old male buddhist and university teacher living both in graz and near graz in a very calm place. ---- i don't really need "help", but if you come to my place, you may do things which i would normally do myself :-) such as planting things or removing the bad seeds from the garden -- or building something useful (beds, cupboard, worktable); cooking, baking, snow-plowing, carrying wood, whatever. ---- my current projects are: making a new path in the garden, plastering a road with stones. future projects: more plastering, woodwork, gardenwork ---- i am interested to meet non-smoking (!), calm, educated, spiritual (meditative) people. some of my interests include buddhism & spirituality, LD, OOBE, compassion, but also gender studies, feminism, humanism, LGBTQI -- or anything else. if you want, you can partly spend time in town, for fast internet and for less solitude :-)

  • Help


    at this moment, it is necessary to remove the stones from the road/pathway in the garden in preparation for construction work. also possible is laying of stones around the house and on the parking spot. later putting the stones back on the road/pathway.


    you can help me in the garden and in the house; maintaining the vegetable garden, mowing the lawn, clearing areas which cannot be mown, clearing the fence from planta, cleaning the lawnmower :-D , or cleaning the corners and windows of the house, checking the bicycles, or similar projects.

    i will need to make a road, parking, a pathway, and secure a steep area with stones. it would be very good to have help with that.

    i would be happy to do woodwork with you: furniture or stuff for the hut.

    i would like to practice tibetan or to learn more chinese; or learn/exercise another language.

    you must be a non-smoker.

  • Accommodation


    you can have a small room of your own in the house on the countryside and you can also partially stay in an appt. in graz, but then with less privacy (you would have to sleep in the living room which usually is not a problem). both houses are clean and proper, modern standard. the appt. has fast internet; the house on the contryside which might be your main stay has a slow internet connection (bad signal) and no tv, but everything else is best standard (bathroom, kitchen, living room). -- graz is nearby and i have a car (and bicycles).

    What else ...

    at your free time, you may enjoy the calmness of the countryside or go to graz which is less than 20km until the center. you can go with me by car or walk ca. 3km (!) to the bus stop, or take a bicycle (17km). as mentioned, you can stay in graz as well; you can come with me and meet other people or go around on your own. i may go to hot springs or do a bike tour, or climb a mountain with you, if you like :-)
