  • Description


    Because it is useful for you to know first ;) We are mainly looking for women with child care experience and we prefer a single person but we are not stubborn about that. So if you are male and you love to care for a 2 years old whirlwind who knows what he wants - then you are of course welcome! :)

    We are a warm-hearted, creative, vegan/vegetarian patchwork family with three boys (15, 9 & 2), four cats and a dog.
    Manuel is 33, writer, freelance journalist, guitar teacher and has a master in geography. at the moment he is searching for a job and is also trying to push his self - employment. I am Stefanie-Alina Maria, 43, mother and healer. At the time I organise drum circles and speaking circles and love to help people to come in their authentic power and the true higher self.

    We live in a big old house with a garden in a village 10 minutes from the beautiful city and the lake of Thun.
    We are easy going and open minded and we do our best to treat each other with love and mindfulness.
    We love playing music, listening to music, dancing, nature, hiking, spirituality, cultures, languages, reading, good talks, sitting around the campfire, cultural exchange, shamanic drumming, gardening, watching good movies and much more. We try to live authentic and conscious. We think that all creatures on earth have the right to live and deserve our love and respect.

    Our home is a mask-free zone! We hug each other and we are not vaccinated. We believe that healthy food, no mainstream media, no fear, much love and laughing, personal responsibility and a concious life are the best things for a good immune system and a happy life.

  • Help


    At the moment we need help for babysitting our youngest boy (2), housework, gardening and some walks with the dog, so that we can more work on our self-employment and have more time together.

    I would also love to learn how to practice Yoga and if you are able to coach me a bit in doing workout and losing weight, it would be great!
