  • Description


    LIving in a rustic house in the country side near Como lake.
    Peace, nature and gardening and orchard lover.
    Easy going person
    I realized, with the support of many, a little meditation center where people can come to practice, listen to the dhamma, do yoga, walk in the nature contemplate and meditate.
    Sometimes we old meditation retreats (not often yet).
    When it happen we may need help in cooking, cleaning the kitchen and doing the dishes plus assist meditators.
    When there are not retreats, help with gardening, like cutting the grass, prune the trees and general maintenance.
    Sometimes wooden buildings and/or painting wood or iron fences.
    We are looking for people that have already some experience, both in meditation retreats and gardening/house maintenance.

    You are welcome!
