    This is a multiple desert dome project with zen gardens on a 50hct land in the desert of Southern Spain ( Natural park : " El Desierto de Tabernas ) deep down a dirt track which used to be a river bed (rambla) with high canyons either side, in a isolated part of the desert , a few bizzare and hardy hermit desert dwellers from different nationalities are living out their lives each on their own with lots of space between them .
    Much of the inspiration has come from Nader Khalili and his building techniques

    As there is lots of free land here more
    living spaces in de nader khalili style
    can be built here .

    The land is neighbouring Mini Hollywood texas bravo and sierra leone where they filmed the spaghetti westerns.
    There are here on this project some rules and regulations , and they do need to be observed

    One of them is while being on the land/project.....guests/woofawares/visitors are not allowed to bring or use supstances like : alcohol and tobacco to the site .
    So if to disagree , do not apply but seek an other host/workaway situation and be succesfull in doing that .

    The time table is not fixed but looks more/less like this ( depending time of year and type of Art work .

    morning meditation 8;00-9:00 (anapanna sati /vipassana)

    Breakfast 9:00-9:45 thee/coffee....etc

    Work 10:00 ~ 15:00 ( thee brake 12:00 )

    Dinner 15:00 ( vegetarian )

    Fruit/lemonjuice around 19:00

    Meditation 19:30 -20:30

    Thee 20:30- 21:00

    5 day,s work ....2 days free

    The free day,s are not fixed , going to the beach / jungle / oasis....mountain tracking and all other outdoor activities may at times take , many day,s.....even weeks .
    In these surcumstances not being on the land all costs are shared equally amoung us .

    Guests have theire own dormitorie dome during stay , the main dome including kitchen is closed between 21:00 and 7:45 .

    There is an eerie stone silence here, just the sound of the wind through cactus, and through the cypress, pine and eucalyptus trees that have been planted here. The light is like quick silver, and the rocks are alive - the earth is covered in gems, quartz, purples, turquoise and huge lumps of lava the size of my head still looking like they are embering, blown out from an ancient volcano on the horizon.
    Sunsets and sunrise are absolutly spectacular as the site is situated 400 mtr above sealevel on a horizontal plateau , with V shape mountain position sunrise and setting .

    At present 22-1-2202 stil and as we did in the past ,washing clothes , stocking pure drinking water and taking a bath is done on the edge of Tabernas town where there is a spring with pure water coming from the mountains , it is a magical place from antiguety build by the Moors long long ago , it is very privite as no one goes there .
    On the project spring water is brought by trucks 10.000 ltr each time to fill up the water storages which are semi underground ( 40000 ltr & 100000 ltr ) and one of them is used to swim in during the hot summer months .
    As well there is a 3000 ltr container high on a platform to serve water in the kitchen and bathroom (which at present is under construction . )

    The place is pretty magical and is now welcoming Workawayers to join in to finish this project... There may also be potential for long term volunteers to stay and live on the land and create a dome structure of theire own in arabic style , if they enjoy the energy of this desert landscape and its healing possibillities ( silence )includingwhat that does to the balance of Mind

    Some or All will help make food together at meal times.

    There are many languages spoken here, opportunities to practice.

    We like practise Meditation ( Annapanna Sati and Vipasanna ) and have conversations on spirituality and our place in this universe including
    the Art of Living and Dying .

    The rocks and minerals in this area are spectacular and some of the most diverse in the world. We have the wild nature right outside and available to explore in your own time.

    There is a friendly local town and then several white mountain villages nearby which are wonderful to visit.

  • Arbeit


    During the summer months ( july/august/september/ the activities on the project stop becouse of very high temperatures

    help we need:

    Help is flexible and can fit to what you would enjoy. Also if you bring specific skills in for example in creativity/or want to learn how to build a compost toilet this can be our focus.

    Below is a list of the main two tasks.

    A building has been created to serve as a bathroom, and is partly finished. This needs tiling in the part where one takes a shower

    On top of the main dome is a second floor ( large flat ciculair roof ) the beginning of a dome is allready there it needs brickwork and cementing maybe hemp blocks will be used is will be a challenge to do this as there only one pillar and large triangels ...advice & suggestions how to manifest are to be discused .

    At present showers and toilet are taken in the garden between the trees/plants in the open air.

    If people are interested and feel skilled. We may build a second story on one of the domes to create a room.

    Here are a a list of the more regular day to day tasks that are available:

    - Gardening (moving about various cactus creating a boundary wall)
    - Building irrigation tunnels

    - Tiling with real Morrocan salvaged tiles
    - Painting the internal domes
    - putting more cacti in the gardens
    - creating a carp pond
