    I live in the regional nature reserve of Perche, in Lower Normandy, about 2h30 away from Paris in a small isolated house surrounded by fields, with many animals. This is a very beautiful place, without any neighbours.
    My home is a vegan place, and also a sanctuary for stray cats (12), rescued dogs (4), and retired horses from a riding school (2).

    I'm a psychoanalyst and a energy healer. I'm vegan and interested in ethnology and spirituality, nature, human and animal rights, politics, philosophy and I like discussing about these topics and many others.
    Beside my job, I spend much time alone with the animals or in nature but also enjoy having friends for dinner.
    I'm busy with developping a non-profit organisation about personal development I've created with some friends. Among many others, a part of this project is to set here a place to host people who need to take a break from their habits so they can discover and experiment another way of living, simple, more connected to Nature and to their deep aspirations.
    I'm on my own to do everything at home so I don't have enough time to take care of the animals, do the daily routine and progress on the projects.

    An efficient help is needed : a good sens of humour, enthousiasm, true working moments, this is a good balance to me.
    Workawaying here is an experience of "community/family" living spending much time together, being surrounded by animals. I'm very respectful of people needs and always do my best to organise things so everyone as a moment on his own beside the working hours but in return I'm asking my guests to be vegan while staying here , to be respectful, open-minded, reliable, and aware they're going to immerse themselves in an animal sanctuary day and night (maybe sleeping with at least one cat, probably a few) so ready to follow a few basic rules so everyone leaves in harmony all together.

    Feel free to contact me to get more details.

    Warm regards.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Living in a quiet place in the countryside surrounded by animals, focused on how they behave and communicate can be a very enriching experience for people who want to experiment a life more connected to nature.
    I enjoy discussing so once the job is done, I will be available and happy to talk about spirituality, psychology, nutrition, energy healing, self developpement, veganism and many other different topics.
    I can also teach French, vegan cooking, horse cares and show many touristic places in the area.
    French speakers can attend for free to the conferences / events set by the organisation I'm working in.

    Accommodation

    A room in the house or a coach in the living room if the bedroom is already used by some ill cats.
    During the summer, if you have a tent, you can pitch it in the garden.
    We will have to share the bathroom.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I can pick you up and bring you back to the bus or railway station when you arrive and leave.
    A car or a bike would be usefull to easily visit the beautiful landscape, small villages and manors of Perche. It is also a right place to hike.
    The house is small so I can only receive volunteers one by one.
