  • Description


    Take a rest in your life, look back on your life, and think about the change in life.

    Nice to meet you. ^^
    I am a man in my late 40s, living alone.
    I have been building eco-housing for about 20 years as a builder, and was a teacher at an alternative school.
    These days, I share Kouk Sun Do, a traditional Korean practice, and work as a freelance carpenter and house repair expert.
    I am growing a fruit tree and trying permaculture.

    I built the house I live in myself.
    I applied a solar dryer and a solar heater using appropriate technology,
    and I use 'Ondol', a traditional Korean heating system.

    I'm looking for someone to help me with farming and general management.
    Anyone who knows that their perception interprets the world and wants to be free from it is more welcome.

    It's good for many people to gather and have fun, but this is a good place to relax and look back on yourself.
    Rest in an independent space surrounded by nature,
    With proper labor,
    It's the good place for someone who wants a peaceful and healthy life.
    This is also a place where you can recognize and change your consciousness.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am a teacher of 'KoukSonDo', a traditional Korean practice.
    KoukSunDo includes stretching, meditation, martial arts and many more.
    This aims to become a holistic human being.
    And I share this with the villagers for free every morning.
    Because we're connected to each other.
    Because when I'm doing for myself, that happy energy is delivered around me.
    Anyone can join if they want.

    I can give advice on building a house, share the appropriate technology and basic permaculture.

    and share with you how to cook simple Korean food.

  • Accommodation


    You will be staying at Tiny House.
    This house was built for the purpose of healing by myself.
    Made with natural wood and charcoal, it is very cozy and comfortable.
    Also, because the house is independent, you can live a free life
    It's a great place to stay quiet and look inside.
    No alcohol or drugs.
    Shower and cooking facilities are also available.

    If you want, we can go to a nearby mart together and choose the ingredients yourself.
    Also, we can cook dinner and eat together or enjoy food from nearby restaurants.
