    Beschreibung

    Hello from Tipperary in the heart of Ireland. You are very welcome to my world. Yes, you will be happy to know that I am a human being, but first and foremost i am a Spirit Being on earth and everything i do is aligned with the Divine Energy that I Am. I share my Light principally as a singer songwriter and sound healer. My intention in living this life, is to assist in the manifestation of Heaven on Earth. It is a mission i share with an ever increasing band of people all around the world, there are billions of us, some of us simply just don’t know it yet. This mission has inspired me recently to leave my family home and a very comfortable life and live in my forest, off grid, on my own, me and the trees, following the promptings of my heart.

    Its a 9acre forest on a south facing slope, consisting of 7200 deciduous trees which were planted in 2001. The views to the Mountains are stunning. If you are looking for a peaceful secluded natural environment to spend some time in Ireland then this could be the place for you. Please be clear that this is a rustic off grid experience with basic facilities at present. Temporary accommodation consists of a mobile home for visitors and volunteers and a caravan for myself. The peace and quite is what draws me here, a yearning for relaxation which has brought many challenges that in turn has gifted me the strenght to love like never before.

    The main priority is to build a small strawbale cabin this summer, as gracefully and relaxedly as i possibly can, with a view to creating a work of art. There are also other allied projects to be completed as listed below. No previous experience is required for any of the projects listed. I ask that you are genuinely interested in and respectful of the vibration i am creating here, that we are courteous and respectful to one another and to all volunteers, that you keep the mobile home tidy, no smoking indoors and you are contactable at all times in case of emergencies

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    I have been a workaway volunteer myself for 2 years travelling around Europe. So i have an understanding of what ingredients produce a good experience.

    Acknowledging that we all perceive things differently, what i see here in my forest is peace and quite, a simple off grid life with a strong alignment to the Divine, opportunities to express myself in song and sound and dreaming of a wonderful dance space some day. In exchange for your presence, energy and 5 hours work 5 days a week, i offer you in return an opportunity to connect with nature, to feel Ireland in your bones, to relax and unwind, to gain some basic eco building/forestry experience, to improve your english and if you so wish, to get to know Your Spirit and Your Light like never before, inspiring you to be the best version of you, you have ever known.

    FACILITIES
    All volunteers will be accommodated in the 3 bed mobile home, which is situated in a large clearing in the centre of the forest, so it gets lots of sunlight. These bedrooms are unheated so they will be comfortable only from 1 May to 30 September. If someone wishes to come during the colder days of autumn and winter, i am open to discussing their request. Pillows and duvets are provided. Please bring your own sleeping bag, towel and soap. I stay in an adjacent caravan

    There is solar power with enough capacity to give each volunteer a light in the bedroom and charging point for a phone and pc. Please turn off lights when not in use

    The mobile home has a Kitchen, with hob, oven and sink. Perishable food is kept cool in a cold box outside. Fresh running water from my well is available in the mobile home kitchen tap. An outdoor compost toilet and a gravity fed solar shower area are provided. The shower will have warm water on sunny days only. The mobile home also has a dining/living space in which there is a guitar, djembe drum, bodhrán, glockenspiel, singing owl, flute and whistles. Some dvds are available, you need to bring your own device to play them.

    MOBILE PHONE
    There is no wifi in the forest. However there is a reasonably good signal for mobile data, and my phone can be a hotspot for one hour a day if required.

    DIET
    Food is mostly vegetarian/vegan/organic. For breakfast i provide oats/cereals, rice cakes, cheese, rice milk, yogurt, fresh fruit, dried fruit, seeds, local honey and sometimes bread. Dinner is usually rice/lentils/potatoes/salads with vegetable stirfry/stew, lighter foods in warmer weather. Please let me know if there is any specific food you would like. If you wish to cook, it will be taken as part of your 5 hour day. We share the cooking on weekends. Drinking alcohol as a way of socializing isn't my thing. I prefer instead to have conversations over water, tea, coffee or local organic food in diverse, enriching environments. I dont smoke and if you wish to smoke you may smoke outdoors.

    CARE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
    I reduce, reuse and recycle very consciously, aware of my place in the cycle of life, caring for the earth with every breath i take. I ask that each volunteer separates their waste into whatever containers are provided and that the trees and plants, insects, animals, the birds and the bees in my forest are all treated with respect.

    WORKING CLOTHES
    Please bring an old long sleeved shirt, trousers, sun hat and shoes or boots. Slip on footwear is very convenient when going in and out of the mobile home

    WASHING CLOTHES
    There is no washing machine here. Please bring clothes that are easily washed by hand.

    TENT
    A 4 person tent is available, warm from May/June to August/September

    SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES :
    It is important to know that i respect each volunteers private space, their likes and dislikes. We are all unique beautiful individuals. I do not assume that because you come and stay at my place that we are going to get along like a house on fire. If that happens to be the case, that would be wonderful, but its an added extra. Be assured that it is entirely up to each person to spend their free time as they wish. As I have said above, I simply ask that we are courteous and respectful to one another and you are contactable at all times in case of emergencies.

    A small village is within walking distance with restaurant, small shop open 7days, pub, petrol pumps and post box. There are 2 caravan parks in the area and its a 5 minute drive to the nearest hotel.
    Tipperary town is 15minute drive away with shops, supermarkets, cafes, pubs, a swimming pool, library, small art gallery, cinema and theatre. I drive to Tipperary Town once maybe twice a week and can offer you a lift at those times

    Local Attractions include:
    1. Superb walking trails through the Glen of Aherlow and up the Galtee Mountains. My forest is on one of these walking trails.
    2. Some small megalithic monuments close by
    3. Cahir Castle
    4. The Rock of Cashel
    5. The megalithic stone circle at Lough Gur

    TRAVELLING FROM ABROAD:
    BY AIR
    Dublin Airport is the most convenient. Best time to arrive in Dublin Airport is sometime before 3pm if you wish to come straight to my place by train. At the time of writing, July 2019, this was the best public transport option

    Public Transport Option 1
    Take the 747 bus to Dublin Heuston Train Station. The 747 leaves outside Terminal 1 usually every 10 or 15 mins. Allow 1hr and 30mins for that trip. Take train travelling in the direction of Cork, get off at Limerick Junction. Last train leaves at 19.00. The journey takes 1 hour and 40mins approximately.

    I can pick you up and drop you back at no cost to this train.

    Please note: Limerick Junction Train Station is 2 km outside Tipperary town. It is 35km from Limerick City.

    BY FERRY
    Dublin port: There are some public transport connections to the city centre where you can catch the train mentioned above. Check with your ferry company.

    Rosslare Harbour: There is a bus that leaves for Tipperary Town about 5 times each day. It takes about 3hr 30min. Check buseireann website

    ANOTHER OPTION
    I can pick you up and drop you back to Limerick city for €20

    TRAVELLING FROM WITHIN IRELAND :
    Plan to arrive in Tipperary Town and i can pick you up and drop you back there at no cost.
