We are Tor Arne (1964) and Hale Serpil Tasli (1969) , we are sharing our home with our intention to experience Aliveness together with the people that are in our life. This can be friend, family or other that we get to know along in this magical life we have here in Vinterbro nearby Oslo.
We are not doing business from our Home in the current time , but hope to make a beautiful center for many to enjoy in the future.
Therefor we are looking for people with a good and joyful spirit that could be a part of our journey, and that you see yourself as a part of something that might benefit many others in the future.
We are located in beautiful surroundings with deep old forreste l, lakes and the fjord just 20 min away by walk on a cultural path in the forrest. We have easy access to transport for those who like to explore the City of Oslo .
We are looking for people that can find a meaning in supporting each other in life, working together , sharing space , sharing meals and simple get to know each other while being together.
When it comes to the expectations we have for you as the Volunteering Workawayer , we see this as a mutual aspect of sharing skills and knowledge and what comes out of this becomes a part of the Home & Aliveness Center.
We are both dedicated to develop a compassionate and joyful way of being in life.
As a couple we are cultivating the “the four Immeasurables” found in Buddhism as a bases for all our work. The Buddha taught the Four Immeasurables - loving-kindness, compassion, appreciative joy and equanimity - in order to remove ill will, cruelty, jealousy, clinging and aversion.
We believe that the world is a better place where there is more friends coming together . Therefore is the first step in any business for us to make the grounds for understand the other person, and seeing them as friends. A person that has attended a work away experience with us or is our friend. Friendship has no demands and are free, but to take care of it is important.
We see a living center that can offer healing and love to all that comes and stays. Our biggest vision is that we as humans develop a peaceful way of being together with the nature and all other sentient beings.
We are also connected with more centers in Norway . One in Lofoten and one in Larvik. So if it will be something that you want to explore, then we can make arrangement to bring you to the places also.
With love Hale and Tor Arne
