  • Description


    Searching for harmony, immersing in „here and now”, the beauty of simple life when you can stay connected with nature and accept with gratefulness what a single day unfolds – this is our journey, this is what keeps us happy and alive.

    Hi Folks, I'm Miłka. I live a simple life, in hormony with nature and with people I love. We live in an over hundred year old house that stands next to the forest. The forest and the house seem to blend together and when you enter our house you will know why. I love it this way.

    Every morning I go up the hill to meditate in the meadow. This is where I learn to be grateful. I believe feeling grateful for your life, appreciating small things, feeling life through all your senses, finding joy in simple but meaningful work, being mindful and being surrounded by people who love life; this is what brings harmony and happiness. And then comes acceptance. And that means living in the present. Here and now. This is what we try to do here. But of course we are only humans. So it is always trying. It is the road not the destination.

    About our projects...

    We work from home. I'm a writer and a poet. ( I write fiction), My husband is a photographer but he prefers to call himself a builder ( And there's a lot of truth about it:) We homeschool our kids (13 y.o and 9 y.o) plus two other kids that visit us 3 times a week. We have a guest house for renting. We have a barn where we want to have workshops. Herbs, clay work, we come up with thousands of ideas...

    We often work with wood (this our ongoing renovation project or with recycled materials, also with clay) We appreciate those who are good at organizing, (it makes us so happy when someone can organize our mess), we appreciate those who are happy to work alone, who are not scared of household chores, who don't mind doing work that might be tedious (but can bring beautiful results). But first of all we appreciate those who bring their world to our house with their wonderful ideas and talents and those who like kids and are happy to be their friends for a while. We love and appreciate creativity, music, cooking, good stories, a sense of humour and inspiring ideas.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can be part of our family and witness all that love brings to everyday life. Sometimes it's crazy and wild, sometimes peaceful and deeply melancholic, sometimes sad and tired but it's always authentic. This is how we feel life. It's slow life that sometimes speeds up, it's slow food that sometimes turns into celebration, it's the volcanoes of energy of our kids, it's the artistic soul of our house. These are your lessons...
