    Description

    Welcome at a hidden treasure of freedom in the north west Bulgaria. Just between the borders with Servia and Romania you can come to discover a little heavenly existence.

    After having traveled parts of our world living like the world is my home I realized that this is not just a cliche saying but something to really become true. I thought home could really be everywhere if there is just a concept where this can be real and sustain by itself so I did my part to realize this concept where a heaven on earth can be experienced with a solidarity farm where permaculture, integrity, love, leissure, omnipresence, wealth and synergy forming it's pillars.

    Those are shaped to improve a concept where the world could become our home once again.

    Did you ever hear about permaculture? If you have never heard about this I recommend you to google the term and get inspired by to integrate this concep into your lifestyle. I do have information here too so dont worry if you are a newby and you wish to get to know more. I believe everybody could become a permaculturist as it is basicly a mindset that makes you a connecter/cocreater of nature instead of a consumer.

    I stands for Integrity; we are coming from a place of openess and honesty, where we find harmony to be united and in diversity.

    The first L stands for Love. Everything we do with love and not because someone else needs us to do something than our own inner authority. We respect and set our individual needs, wishes and bounderies while reaching out to others who appear in our reality. It's a very broad concept and something mostly spoken about but also mostly undervalued in the society of today.

    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. Free of time is all time, out of time in the experience from and in moment to moment. If you go for a swim in the Danube or instance, you could realize that there is garbage on the way and that there could come that feeling of responsibility by observing what your eyes see. Call it freedom, call it duty, inspiration or enthusiasm. There are always all kinds of wonderful things to do, to read, to paint, to feed the soil, to construct, to plant seedballs in the village, to play sports 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.

    The O is for Omnipresence. What is here, is everywhere, what is not here is nowhere. Let it be clean, beautiful and in peace. Something that could grow as a mesh network, or simply a state of mind of being. Practically I give you a donation passport of this place after your visit as I wish this to overgrow the concept of nation states and infuse a solidarity economy glocally. I wish to inspire and apsire to inspire so that we may inspire others to experience more HOME on this vast planet.

    W stands for Welfare.
    Money is still the main religion next to nation states but here I see love as main currency to work with which is to be(come) the liberation of vital elements, but at this stage money is needed to invest so that after a while this could become a reality. For now wealth is mainly the being at peace, at ease and connected with the elements. The exchange is what gives value to the place, your being, your time, knowledge, skills and creativity accelarates the heartbeat. In the process are the solidarity farming products and services, but as this is the first year there is a moment to observe and build up a comfortable set of qualities. This is initial stage so there is lots of work to do to. A pizza oven is already build in order to host events combined with making and eating a delicious pizza. Next to eating organic food I would like to build a tamazcal to host spiritual sessions, host lectures about regenerative culture, make community gardens and many more.. Another idea is to collect medicinal herbs to dry and have as product before we are getting in to cultivating herbs for making etheric oils.

    We work on the creation of more solidarity products and services that regenerates a healthy culture.. Your skills, knowledge and experiences are warmly welcomed.

    Synergy

    The main synergy we work with here are the equilibirum with soil, soul and society comes together. We start with the reconnection to the soil afterwhich comes the experience of a healthy soul from which society can be served. We search for and exchange autonomous and authentic interactions while slowly clearing out a seperated reality where you are volunteer and me (who wrote this) as host. I am simply an initiator of this concept and I wish to travel the world again once this project here is running in a selforganized way.

    I truly believe that if you come at home, that our eyes will get wider open and while you are really quit you here that a heaven on earth is being born.

    Kind greetings from Vruv,

    Freddie and his squad

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

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

    Learn about regenerating land and see land/life as a theatrical painting. There is quite a big playfield in the house, the garden and the village where I open up space to be like a decor with colours (flowers, fruit and nut trees, veggies, herbs, mandala garden, outdoor kichen with coboven, a comfortable corner, library, paint, tools, clothes, five cats, a little animal farm with five chickens and happy people and friends who often pass by or tune in.

    I walk with you through the village, meet the natives and foreigners who live here. There are inspiring people who still maintain an old European peasent life where they are mostly self sustainable with their food production. It is a challenge as life is hard while youngsters leave by the many and the eldery people remain with as little as 200 euro pension, but it is one of the reasons I am here to make a project that could attract new life to return and revive the village life.

    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.

    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 we 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.
