We (Emmanuelle and Jean-Marc) are both therapists and have a 2-year-ord girl. We've been living for a couple of months in a big old house where there's a yoga and meditation room and a bed& breakfast. Besides our job as therapists, we're developing a permaculture garden, need to renovate some parts of the house to make it even more compatible with our needs and take care of our hosts ( groups, yoga and spiritual teachers...). We are on the way to Santiago de Compotella, which means we receive lots of pilgrins. We have a huge garden, an access to a river. We intend to make out of this place a spiritual and cosy place for people who want to contribute to a new world!
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
I (Emmanuelle) am Swiss and studied languages and ethnology. I also was interested in different cultures, studied in different countries and love sharing with other cultures. Jean-Marc is French and quite interested in international politics. Most our friends come from different cultures. We love sharing about the situation and conditions in different parts of the world. We'll let you discover our world and mindset! As we have a little child, you'll discover very concrete aspects of our Swiss life -and French, since our child speaks inly French!
As there are only 2 of us, working also part time as therapists, we need some help to work with us in the garden, in the house our little girl! We need above all someone who has some experience in gardening (perfect would be permaculture) and is not afraid of contributing to manual work. You might also cook with the family, babysit or clean from time to time. Various activities, which will make it even more interesting for you!
