Hello ! We are a family of three. My 26 year old daughter lives in Paris. Wife is working in Warsaw, Poland. My house in Pune has 3 bedrooms so 2 bedrooms are there for guests and volunteers. If you are a traveler and spiritual then you can come and stay here and experience life in a big city in a India. I also teach meditation and turning deeply spiritual, so if you are also a spiritual seeker or an explorer it would be a better company to be in with. I travel a lot as well. My destination is Europe and the Himalayas. I will travel within India as well. Actually I had put up the volunteer requirement for looking after my 14 year dog but he just passed away yesterday 30 Sep 2018. I got one very nice boy Lucas from Brazil to help me with my dog. Now my dog has left me but I still feel that I should allow people to come and stay in my house.
I want to devote more time to catch up with my meditation practices and my search for self realisation. I therefore, am looking for volunteers who can help me with cooking and house cleaning. What I can offer in addition to hosting you is spiritual discussions on self realisation, my experiences, Indian culture, outdoor trips around my place on weekends. I prefer simple vegetarian food with no spices/chillies.
Even if you are looking for a longer stay you are most welcome. You can pursue something in Pune like learning Yoga or Indian dance forms. You might take some part time jobs nearby to keep yourself busy if you feel there is not enough work in the house. I am myself learning keyboard/harmonium as I always wanted to play a musical instrument. I want to compose my own music for meditation and chanting. I am presently living alone, just returned from Poland living in Warsaw for 1.5 years. My wife is still there till June 2021. I work 6 days a week in Pune. I have off on Thursdays, so weekends I am in Office.

There will be a separate bedroom with attached bathroom for the volunteer. My apartment has 3 bedrooms and one common room plus a living room.
I guess the workaway will need to work around 3 hours a day. During weekends they are most welcome to plan out things with me as well or by themselves, as they wish. I like conversations which I feel are very enriching, so I guess there can be a lot of learning. During the day also they are free, if they have a hobby to pursue they can use that time to do that. Pune is a crowded city so you would prefer to have a quiet time in this apartment so plan accordingly. The apartment is very peaceful and in a quiet township. There is a swimming pool, tennis courts, badminton court, squash court, basketball court, Gym in the township which the volunteer can use.
