  • Description


    My wife Kasia and I are setting up a retreat center with an organic permaculture system. We have a large house finished, second building for additional accommodation and meeting space still needs to be completed. We are situated 15mins drive from Lębork and one hour from Gdansk. We have several nice ponds around the house and a beautiful swimming lake a short walk away. We are on the edge of a Kaszubian Landscape Park with a lot of tourist trails and lakes.
    Our interests are permaculture, sustainability, personal growth, herbs, alternative health, Qigong, meditation, Alexander Technique, intention community, POP, systemic therapies like Family Constellations, and breathwork. We started living here in 2014, and before that, for seven years we did live in the Findhorn Intentional Community in Northern Scotland. Before then I had lived in several communities in Australia.
    As well as short visits, we are currently looking for a person/s to stay long term to help develop the place. Ideally, this person/s has an interest in sustainability and maybe can work with our horses. Also, we are open for someone to establish a small business here around the horses, or land e.g. organic eggs, bees, herbs, or vegetables.
