    Hello loving people,

    We are an enthusiastic open-minded Tantra yoga center, a non-profit association run by yoga teacher Wim and art teacher Chandra.
    We like to bring people together in a green, calm and inspiring environment. You are more then welcome at our Center for personal development and consciousness in our next to form Workaway team, or as a housekeeper when we are traveling!

    Our agenda and availability for the upcomming months:

     In both September and October we organize a period of 'living the community live' . We offer several options for 2 weeks to long term stays. Ask for more details when interested and sent us your email address...

     House sitting: from around 10th of November to half of April we are traveling, and we are looking for people who like to stay in our winter house and take care of the property, our 7 chickens, 2 cats, doves, kefir and some weeding. Long term stay, from 6 weeks to the whole period. shorter stays are not practical for us;-)

     Volunteer period, arrival 16th of April, departure 4th of May. Free stay in rooms.
    Thursday 16th of April: arrival day; Friday Tour and introduction of the program, start work and first Tantra Yoga class.
    Following Workaway days: Painting, gardening, building a wooden bridge, replacing fourniture. Prepearing the center for the first retreat guests to arrive. Every morning we start with a 30 minutes mini hatha yoga lesson - sunsalutations and meditation session. We offer every second evening a Tantra or yoga session / activity. The other evenings volunteers can share their knowledge and deliver activities on own behalve.
    Free days are 20th and 24th of April, 2nd of May.
    Saturday the 25th of April to the 1st of May: guests arrive for a yoga and art retreat. This week you assist behind the scenes of a Yoga and Art reatreat, making the guests comfortable. You can join daily a yoga or art class, and there is every evening an activity free for you to attend, as like singing bowl and crystal healing meditation, sauna, mantra chanting, making music etc. all for free.
    3rd of May: clean up of the center, and end ceremony in the evening
    4th of May: departure

    We like to attract 12 like minded people, 6 shiva's (men) and 6 shakti's (women), between around 24 and 38 years.
    What we need: Strong men and women to do some construction work, steady hands for a lot of painting, some cleaning tasks. Also enthousiastic, dynamic, uplifting, loving energy are good ingredients we like to attract in the team.

     In July and August we create volunteerteams to support the Yoga - Art and Tantra week retreats, helping behind the scenes cleaning, making peanutbutter, kefir, gardening, etc. F.e. our Tantra festival 18th to 25th of July 2020.
    You are in a team of 6 volunteers. Look for our summer programm and photos on our site.
    Every volunteer has his own working scedule of 5 hours. You do some cleaning, DIY/gardening etc. Depending your skills.
    Sent us your email address and we sent you a script, its very detailed, but it gives you a good impression of the help, and we make a Skype appointment to already meet.
    What we offer you in return: Stay in own tent on the camping or dorm . Food and drinks. Next to your 5 hours help you can attend all our courses!!

    Tantra program: The tantra lessons will let you experience total and absolute freedom in a safe surrounding. You experience yourself as an unique human being, through a partner or through the group. In Tantra it is not about bodies touching bodies, but about Buddha's meeting Buddha's. We learn tuning in on the other/group from heart to heart. Your body is your outmost holy temple. In the Tantric yoga group exercises you are going to make contact with another through for example massage, touching, hugging, sharing, loving, eye to eye contact and as so experiencing oneness.

    Do not forget that working on and around the property is not more than moving a pile of stones from one place to the other. What's really important is YOU who's doing it, ..........and the most important tantra lesson.... we expect nothing else than 100% of your presence.
    We work on normal speed to be able to be present in the here and now (= not in slow motion, for we want to appeal to our full potential as a healthy human being, not in acceleration, for we want to be concious of the steps we take along the way.)

    A stay here is all about being who you are. Being alive, awake, conscious, being present in the here and now. Putting as much love as possible in what you are doing.

    All meals are vegetarian and of course for free. Half is organic: as much veggies and fruits as possible from our garden and neighbours who have a permaculture garden.
    All tantra lessons are free.

    And YESSSSSSSS we have a sauna ...(dress code, skin;-))

    For the safety and peace of our 3 cats and the chickens, we can't allow dogs on our property.

    Let us know if you are up for this once in a life time experience!


    Chandra and Wim
