  • Description


    My name is Branka, guider of this place. After a career of 25 years as a psychologist in the city, I retired to live in a simple way. In 1998, I bought a small house in the Latinovac village, Croatia. Over the years, lot of people from all over the world brought their help to make this place what is it today. A peaceful place, very simple and basic. This is all we really need to be happy in our community.

    In 2019, my goals are to work on progress in permaculture gardening and reach sustainablility in a way of having most our own food. Also working on maintaining and rebuilding the house (painting the walls and mowing the grass). Continue on designing the place making more fncional).
    Continue with zen meditation and working permaculture garden.

    With this project, we´ll continue to cooperate with the Zen sangha from Germany, in Steerberg, and we will contibute in growing the sangha mentoring, by Zen master Christoph.
