    Description

    - At the moment we plan a gardening week, getting ready for the winter, from November the 1st till the 8th. Do you want to join? -


    We are a small but growing Community project in the town of Witzenhausen, right in the middle of Germany. Our work is centered around healing sounds.
    Johannes, who built up this place, developed a special kind of Sound Massage using Monochord instruments and we also hold courses to pass on this technique.
    Chris is Project manager and you will communicate with him...

    Our daily work is widely spread. We build instruments in our workshop (monochords, drums, flutes and more), plan a variety of courses on the weekends, based on sound massage, mindfullness, art and craft and music workshops.

    In the summer months, we tour around festivals with our sound-tent. Of course, this work needs a lot of organizing beforehand, so you can also find us sitting in front of the computer for some time each day, advertising, updating the website... if you're interested in event managing or marketing, there's also a job for you.

    Besides, we just bought our first pieces of land. There we will put up parking places for caravans, build small ecological wooden huts for guest housing and retreats and start a gardening project, using permaculture principles. The next steps will also include setting up an outside kitchen and compost toilets.

    Currently, there are four people living here permanently. You'll also meet a bunch of other people who are part of the community and help out whenever time allows. With us there's also living a lovely cat, Mitchi.

    Our center is placed in the part of a big building on the outskirts of Witzenhausen. We have a big common room with kitchen corner, office, and a broad open space for different courses and jam sessions. The walls are stacked with instruments of all kinds, that may be used at any time.
    In the next room you find our well equipped wood workshop, surrounded by guest rooms of community members/ sound massage rooms (three of them, most are all at once).
    In front of the building there as a little outside area and our big tower of sound, (with the most amazing acustic effect) where we also like to have jam sessions, and beneath it, a little studio for band projects.

    In our community life, our most important aims are to connect with each other truthfully and in a loving way. We want to support and reflect one another and spread a loving and lightfull atmosphere through our work. We invite you from our heart to practice with us!

    If you want to come by, please tell us what kind of work interests you most (gardening, instrument building, cooking, housekeeping) or if you want to participate in what ever is going on at the moment (which will be a lot!). Then we can arrange a good experience for you, and see if we can support you in this activity at the moment.

    You can participate in the courses, or explore the beautiful land and the many activities in Witzenhausen, a small city with a big ecological and cultural movement, thanks to the oldest University for organic farming of Germany, which happens to be here.

    IMPORTANT:

    you can stay here as a normal workaway and we cover veg. food and accomodation.
    or you can work 15h per week and you pay food yourself/share. We will find a solution.
    We need flexible people who can help and serve to learn and exchange knowledge and skills.

    Feel free to contact us for any questions. Hope to see you soon!
    We'd love to come in contact with you personally via Skype, discord, Telegram or Phonecall to speak about our issues.
