Small home farm 2km from Mullumbimby. Lots of gardens, house cows, fruit trees, organic living with home made goodies, bees, great compost and easy living. I have a room available for one person who has a genuine spiritual discipline such as yoga or chi kung.
Diet here is vegetarian and includes dairy and it is preferred that your diet is similar otherwise harmonising meals takes too much time and energy.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
I practice Chi Kung, inspired by the teachings of Grand Master Mantak Chia, and enjoy the company of like minded people. You will learn how to observe cycles and signs in nature to support organic gardening as well as learning proven organic gardening techniques. There is usually an abundance of home grown veggies, good rainwater, and honey to share.
