  • Beschreibung


    My name is Jan and believe in the power of dreaming.
    My place has been and is for almost 20 years now a space to be together, to work together, to meet each other, mainly for my friends and family. There is something very beautiful in being together like this. The best way to connect.
    Next step is building a base for a small community
    There will shared and private spaces.
    In a big barn I realized a kitchen, bathroom and sleeping places for general use.
    We have to build walls, isolate them, paint, do maintenance a.s.o.
    The old ruin, next to the barn, will be rebuild again. Three apartments, a big shared kitchen, a room for guests and one for meditation will be build in order to create a small community to support small group - and/or private retreats.
    For the time being I still live in Rotterdam and spend one week per month at the project. I usually take friends to join en help me. At June 19th 2022 I planned to move there permanently.

    I hope we will exchange our inspiration. I think we have to go back to self sustaining small community's. We will meditate and do exercises together and learn how it is to work towards a goal and be in the here and now at the same time. Diversity and inclusion are important themes in an fast changing world.

    Right now I need help for finishing the spaces in the barn and maintenance of the garden. I planned a working period in October for friends and family, from the 1th to the 14th. You are very welcome to join, even for a day or two.
    Each month I spend at least one week at the project. I will adjust my agenda to meet the possibilities.

    There are several caravans and an attic to sleep in. For when there are many visitors at the same time, my neighbor is offering some extra beds. It is very nice to notice that the community feeling in the village is growing.

    The project is located in the French Ardennes, a big protected area of farms of average sizes in a park-like landscape. Silence and space can be experienced as a supporting element of being here. There is not much to do, you'll need at least an electric bike for transport.
    I'll get you of the train and back.
    The village is small, two permanent households and three ‘residents secundaires’. From the 19th of June 2022 I will live there permanently. We regularly meet, eat or have coffee together and help eachother. The community building has already started :-)
