  • Description


    Hello dear,
    We are a international group of openminded and openhearted beeings. Since to years we are setting up a natural retreat center for mainly dancing and bodyworks. We are interested in spiritual developement and dynamic community creation as well as connecting to the self and nature.
    Our land is located in between the villages of Prases and Sembronas, in the county of Chania, on the island of Crete, Greece. The land is full of mainly chestnut trees, there is a forest area and a small river that runs through it.

    The landscape is pristine, wild and there is not much luxury provided other than the beauty of nature and the outdoor facilities. We are aspiring to create an eco community.

    We are looking for a volunteer, male or female, willing to work for 5 hours per day in exchange for food and tent accommodation.Ideally, we would like an easy-going, responsible, hard/funworking person who is used to living in nature willing to assist the cook and his helper with cleaning the kitchen during a workshop and help us with some preparations before the workshop.Period of stay:between 30/6 and 8/7.
