    Beschreibung

    We are a gay couple living in Normandy. We are setting up a small holding and doing our bit to live sustainably. We are looking for an animal-lover to help us with daily chores in the garden, around the house, and dog care.

    Patrick teaches the Alexander Technique, vocal and breathing technique. Joo is an acupuncturist, who teaches yoga, qigong and meditation. We both work locally and internationally. We have two very loving dogs. Long walks on the beach (or in the forest on a hot day) are one of our daily highlights.

    We have a small woodland, fields for hay-making, an orchard, veggie patch, and soon, chickens, bees and goats.

    We love to cook. Food and meals are a joy for us. We do not support large scale agriculture and husbandry. As much as we can, we support local organic farms, or grow our own. Although we do eat some meat and fish, we are mostly vegetarian. When we do eat meat, we try to only eat meat that has been humanely raised and slaughtered. We do not support the use of pesticides.

    Our property is spread out over 7 acres of peaceful French countryside. We feel incredibly fortunate to have this space and we want to share our experience of growing this into something which helps people.

    If you have read this far and are interested in helping us in our daily life, please read on.

    We are happy to share what we teach: Alexander Technique, Breathing Coordination, vocal technique, meditation, acupuncture... You would be welcome to attend weekly yoga & qigong classes held here.

    Obviously we would be sharing our experience of setting up a small holding and of living sustainably.

    We are well-connected to the local community, with French students coming for classes every week. We have good relationships with our neighbours all of whom are French, so it will be a great opportunity for those who want an immersion in French language and lifestyle.

    We are also well-connected with the holistic healing community in the area, so you would have the opportunity to connect with that circle if you so wish.

    The values of inclusiveness and tolerance are very important to us. We are a same-sex, mix-race couple living in deep French countryside. We have been very warmly welcomed into the local community and this is one of the most wonderful aspects of living here.

    We are both bi-lingual English and French. Patrick speaks some German and Italian.... Joo speaks some Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien and Bahasa Malaysia.
