  • Description

    Description

    Be welcome at home in a little cute village of north west Bulgaria and expect a sofa with pillows. This home I have been initiating since last winter; Heaven On Mother Earth.

    Here we are equal brothers and sisters. No dogma's, but a dog who also feels at home (so no not in the house). Three cats are roaming around in the house though. I mainly work here on a little paradise that attracts others to remigrate to the village and enjoy harmonic alchemy between soil, soul and society in harmony.

    In order to reach this I induce you to live in your own unique moment to moment experience and feel what is it you need to do which inspires you at the moment.

    P stands for Permaculture which you might already heard of. But I do have information about it here so dont worry if you are new to the conept or want to improve your knowledge. I believe everybody could become a permaculturist with the right attitude towards nature.

    I stands for Integrity so be honest, be together and feel the strength of unity.

    The first L stands for Love, be in life with love, respect bounderies of eachother and reach out to others. It's a very broad concept and something mostly spoken about but also mostly undervalued so I want you to feel loved at home and to be in a mode.

    The second L stands for Leisure; free time. There are no specific working hours as I want you to be responsible for your own energy and be of service to your inner guide(s). Free time is all the time. If you go for a swim in the Danube, just realize that there is garbage on the way and at the sides of the Danube and that there comes responsibility by observing what you see in freetime. Call it freedom, call it duty. I am not bossing you around There is a list with all kinds of wonderful things to do, to read, to paint, to mulch, collect mulch, to construct, to play football with the villagers, tennis in the nearby village, visit neighbors and see the donkey (maybe you may have a ride), make music, yoga, etc etc.. There is time for everything.

    Lets goo to the ooo :D Omnipresence, you know? What is here, is everywhere, what is not here is nowhere. Let is be clean, beautiful and in peace. Something that could grow as a mesh network, or simply a state of mind of being at home whatever your eyes may see. Practically I give you a donation passport of home after your visit as I wish this to overgrow the concept of nation states and infuse a solidarity economy glocally. I wish to inspire you so that you may inspire others too.

    W stands for Welfare. Money is still the main religion next to nation states but I see LOVE as currency which is to be(come) the Liberation Of Vital Elements, but at this initial state I need money to invest so that after a while this LOVE could become a reality. For now wealth is mainly the being at peace, at ease and connected with the elements. The exchange is what give value, your being, your time, knowledge, skills and creativity accelarated the heartbeats.

    The last letter stands for Serendipity which means to find interesting or valueable things by chance. I think your finding of hme is a serendipity in itself and here you will find more by chance, whatever by chance means. Your eyes will be open and while you are listening, looking and knowing, things will be there on your path that you and that the home may need.

    Kind greetings from Vruv,

    Freddie

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will learn all about a postmodern & neo traditional/primitivist lifestyle.

    Learn about building up soil and making art your alliance in everything you do do as our hands could be seen as instruments to make something beautiful. There is quite a big garden where you can build up the colours (flowers, veggies, trrees and herbs) by making the worms happy and weeding the things that could transform into mulch to feed the other plants we want to see growing..

    I walk with you through the village and meet the older people who still try to maintain the old European peasent life.
    It is a challange and there eyes tell the story of a dramtatic change they never have thought was able to become true.

    In the village there are two shops and a cafe where you can taste the joy of meeting other villagers and play around with your Bulgarian words you can learn at home.

    Come to help me out here, discover yourself at ease and I will help you where I can and where you need my assistance.

    At the moment if you chose to come here you are going sort of back to a premodern state as water comes from a nearby well, cooking go's mainly on wood although there is the option to cook on electricity as well. I mainly cook by the woodstove as it saves electricity (which is powered by non ecological resources anyway), it heats up the living space and it can also heat up lots of hot water that could be used for washing as there is yet no shower. One of the priorities is to make an outside shower as this will bring me and others also more in the garden and we will use the sun as energysource..

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The focus in all I do is "love" and "nature" is what seems to hold things together, any other premise seems to lead to things going in a direction that slowly ruins all social situations from the premise.

    The beliefs I share are:
    There is a God, there is no God, there are many Gods, we are divine. Basically money is not a goal, but a fulfilling and happy financially and ecologically sustainable lifestyle is. I share my surplus with others in the unconditional wish that there is a mutual exchange of energies. People's individual choices are fine although there is a collective ground on which I serve. This is a healthy home where addictions are not tolerated, so please tell me beforehand if you have any addictions and we can make a PDP (Personal Development Plan), although I am not functioning as therapist. Just see your time here as a cleansing from the addictions you may have and focus on peace with yourself and accept yourself without being in need for those external short term satisfactions.
