  • Description

    Description

    We invite you cordially as a guest of our nonprofit association which is located in a beautiful landscape near Berlin. Our association manages an own clubhouse and a nice but a bit wild garden as a future center for mind-body medicine and mindful nature encounter. We also work in cooperation with medical universities in the field of yoga and meditation research as well as complementary medicine.
    We need your help because we plan to renovate and expand our club house soon, we want to establish our presence on the internet and in the social media and of course we seek donations and sponsors. Therefore, we would also be happy about supporters who have experience in fundraising.
    We also look forward for help with our research projects, especially the preparation of questionnaires, data entry and documentation. And we want to celebrate and organize special events. Such help is very welcome too.
    This association wants to operate in future also in the environment of our house and garden, especially in the field of nature protection. There are meadows, forests and lakes and we want to do permaculture, plant tree houses and a labyrinth as well as build hobbit-houses and other retreat huts. Creative ideas are very welcome ...

    We offer completely organic vegan and vegetarian food and we try to live and work in a mindful and caring way. You may practice meditation with us or you can swim in our lakes, paddle on the river, walk in the woods or enjoy skating, cycling and life in every form.

    There is much to do in a variety of fields, as we have already described above. In the next time we are particularly happy about help in the garden, crafts on our construction site, support of the Internet presence and fundraising. But if you prefer to do something else - we are very creative in distributing tasks.
    Apart from the wild garden there are meadows, forests and lakes and we want to do permaculture, plant tree houses and a labyrinth as well as build hobbit-houses and other retreat huts. Creative ideas are very welcome ...Translators, advertising and fundraising help are also very welcome.
