We are 50 and 44 year old buddhists/atheists, university teacher, with a very calm place near Graz. Work, depending on your abilities: 1. laying stones on the ground, working in the garden (planting seeds, removing bad seeds, cutting trees, embellishing the garden); 2. building something useful with wood (bed, cupboard, worktable); 3. snow-plowing, carrying wood, transporting stuff, cleaning the house; 4. doing linguistic work such as collecting information or data, providing information.
we are interested in non-smoking (!), clean, calm, responsible, educated, spiritual (meditative) people. some of our interests include buddhism & spirituality, LD, OOBE, compassion, but also linguistics/languages, logic/atheism. It is possible to spend daytime in our appartment in town, for internet and other needs.

you have a small room of your own in the house on the countryside, and you can also come to the appt. in graz, but then with less privacy (you would have to sleep in the living room; i am going to the house more or less daily). both houses are clean and proper, modern standard. the house on the contryside has NO internet connection at the moment (except with my smartphone), no tv. Graz is nearby and i have a car and bicycles (some workawayers took the biciycle for the distance).
at your free time, you may enjoy the calmness of the countryside or go to graz which is less than 20km until the city center. you can go with us by car or walk ca. 3km (!) to the bus stop, or take a bicycle. you can come with me and meet other people or go around on your own. we may go to hot springs or do a bike tour, or climb a mountain with you :-)
