  • Description

    Description

    Dear Workawayer,
    Our main project is to upgrade and transform our property (where we also live) into a spiritual temple, where people come and learn about meditation, yoga and how to master themselves and their life.

    We are two generations living together in a very peaceful and beautiful environment, with forest, river and pond in proximity. We are passionate about spirituality in general which we all practice and teach. There are yoga and meditation classes and retreats (in danish) going on all year. While being here you are going to be exposed to our spiritual approach to life, while simply sharing meals, talks, work, etc...
    Note that you also have to be independent (cook for yourself, etc...) and enjoy spending time alone.

    We receive a lot of applications and for us the most important aspect is that helpers have a strong background with practical work. So please mention what are your experiences !

    We are looking forward to welcoming you in our life ! :)

    [ *** Latest Update (Feb 21) *** ] :
    We are currently also looking for someone to take care of "the 3rd generation"... :) Because everyone is working towards making the temple work, our 1 year old daughter needs to be babysit during the day.
    So if you are someone that have experience with children AND enjoy it, please write to us! We imagine that you are playful, joyful and loving towards our daughter. You will also be taking care of other tasks like cleaning and making food. Preferably longer stay (3+ months) but simply write anyway if you feel you're the right candidate but can't stay that long. In any case we are open to find a way that will suit everyone.
    Thank you !

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    By living with us, you will be exposed to an "un-traditional" way of looking at life, yet very down-to-earth. We like to bring spirituality into daily life or maybe it's the other way around: that daily life has become our spirituality!
    You are welcome to follow all events happening at the place (yoga, meditation classes), even though it's in danish.
    All of us are competent teachers and we are very happy to share our experience.

  • Help

    Help

    We are looking for openminded people who have experience with practical work or has a strong practical sense. You will help us with tasks such as painting, construction work, chopping wood, weeding, digging, reparations etc. in order to both expand and maintain the place. We expect 25 hours of help per week in exchange for food and lodging.
    We have usually have fixed working hours: from 9-12 and 13.30-15.30. We agree together what days are working or free days, it doesn't have to be Mon-Fri / Sat-Sun.

    Like we mentioned in the main section, we are currently also looking for an "au-pair". See description above.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Depending on how many volunteers we have you will either have your own room or share a bigger room with one other helper. The rooms are mainly apart from the main building and there you will be sharing bathroom and kitchen with us. We usually share lunch together. The rest of the time you are responsible to make your own food. The fridge is always full of healthy (organic) food and we gladly take into account your shopping wishes ! :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Please take good note, that by staying here you will have to be comfortable with spending time alone (depending how many helpers we have). It is perfect for people needing a time of introspection.
    The place is situated in the countryside, surrounded by forest and lakes. It is perfect to go for walks and connect with nature.
