  • Beschreibung


    We are a family with 3 young and lovely kids (*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️2010, 2013, 2015). Kai is a climbing arborist, and has a training in permaculture design and geomanthy, Almut a medical doctor, specialized in F.X.Mayr Medicine and Anthroposophy. Our long held dream is to lead a rural life and create a healthy, holistic and self sustained farm, an intact microcosmos within the torn macrocosmos of today, to serve the earth, and the times and generations to come. We dream big, it is a huge project to be realized step by step, and we need helping hands in doing so!
    Our projects' lodestar put in one sentence is: "Healing work on earth, plant, animal and man (woman :-)"

    The place we are glad living in (since 2018) has the name because the traditional meaning might possibly be: "mountain of the senses". In our vision the place shall become a refugium, in consideration of all beings. Also a place to (re)gather energies, heal and flourish, for getting in touch with one self and the realms surrounding and supporting us, for reorientation, and inspiration, for both celebration and mourning.

    Our complete lodestar in German:
    "Als wache Menschen wollen wir den gestalten und beleben: rücksichtsvoll im Miteinander und achtsam gegenüber der Würde des Ortes; gemeinsam mit allen Wesen die da leben und unter Einbezug der irdischen, geistigen und kosmischen Kräfte. Wir wollen ein Gefüge erarbeiten, das durch Vielfalt und Beziehung lebt, das die Verbundenheit allen Seins – aller Wesen miteinander, leben und erleben lässt. Dadurch entsteht Heilsamkeit, im Bewusstsein für den Handlungs- und Heilungsbedarf der heutigen Zeit."

    "As awake people, we want to shape and enliven the place : considerate in one another and mindful of the dignity of the place, together with all beings who live there and with the involvement of the earthly, spiritual and cosmic forces. We want to work out a structure that lives through diversity and relationship, which allows to live and experience the connectedness of all being - of all beings with each other - thus creating healing, in the awareness of the need for action and healing of the present time. "

    Regarding all those wonderful words, the visions, aims and projections we hold for the future -
    PLEASE NOTICE: We are at the very beginning!! and at the moment there is quite a bit of pressure on us.
    I just want to make sure the vision doesn't blind reality, we would feel sad and bad if someone takes the effort to come to us ends up disappointed:
    --> At this phase of the project, there is quite a bit of chaos, concerning "things" and concerning processes / times. We often need flexibility and placidity, and - compared to "normal" western lifestyles, modesty.
    --> As a family we have a huge workload and complexity to manage. We still have to sort out many "background things" (bureaucratic, projecting, emotional / social) to get things going . Beside this, also juggling family life and the kids' needs really is a task ... and sometimes lets us struggle. Which means, sometimes we are very consumed with all those tasks. Also family-life with young kids has its own requirements.

    We are happy, welcoming people AND have a family life to shape AND have a huge task in front, - a lot to be done and considered.
    --> Happy to receive you and share our life with you :-)

  • Gesprochene Sprachen

    Gesprochene Sprachen

    german, english, spanish, french, (very little russian and japanese) and also: hands-and-feet very well!

  • Unterkunft


    all kinds, various possibilities. From single room / shared floor to - if available - holiday flat.

    Accommodation with / - access to, full or small kitchen facility possible.

    We intend to reduce radiation resp. WLAN and use of mobile phones as much as possible. So far there is only one access point for internet. (To set up a more comprehensive IT infrastructure is one of the future projects :-)

    Concerning meals:
    A warm meal a day (lunch) is provided by us, either shared at our family table (depends on the person and our family situation) or to take away with you.
    It is for the reason to protect our family's (kids) needs for some "privacy" and solitude during the day, we rather say the guest takes care of his/her own needs for breakfast and dinner and works only 4hrs /day. But of course we also happily accept 5 hrs :-)
    There are different shopping facilities within reach by bike or we can organize transportation / passing by. Depending on the time of year we also have our own crops we can offer to purchase with "home advantage".

    Was noch ...

    Although we live very rural and quiet:
    # in av. 15 min walking distance is public transport available and other infrastructure and shops are in 40-60 min reach by foot / 15 bike.
    # Lake Constance and its surroundings is a favored holiday region, very pituresque and with abundant possibilities for recreation and adventure. There is a well organized (german ;-) and high variety of touristic attractions, natural beauty and cultural facilities.
