    Hello / zdraveite and welcome / dobre dushli in Batak :)

    I am grateful for any motivational hands on deck if you like to help the FUN to evolve

    I am Frederik, 37 years ago born in the Netherlands. After an intensive period of studying and activism, a magnificent life journey brought me to live and work at in the magnificently wild and old country of Bulgaria.

    Here I initate a base for regenerative activities rooted in the concepts of Freedom, Unity and Nature.

    Freedom from fear, lies, harmful/industrialized products, slavery and fakeness are important for the House of the Rising FUN.

    In my former years I was traveling and volu teering extendedly so I have some comprehension what it is like to be in your position.

    During this journey I always maintained a curiousity towards the art and exploration of reality and its creative potential which made me to do what I do now.

    Please notice that the food I provide and support is opportunistic and the culture I promote is traditional. Food and drinks are as local and slave free as possible. You are warmly invited to help preparing animal and plant-based food with respect of freedom, life and regeneration.

    You are respected in your choices while I dont look away from the fact that many decisions made are due to an effect of societal manipulations that intends to strip us from our health, identities and roots. If you consider yourself vegan, vegetarian, lgtbq, exintion rebelion amd black lives matter activist know that you are used for a darker agenda than you now might think.

    if you have no issue seeing behind Plato's cave and you consider yourself as a lion or lioness who wants to feed its truth and fruitful resistance I'd be more then willing welcome you here to help me with the ongoing things to do.

    Keep in mind:
    - your heating is with a woodstove
    - you will make 4 lovely extra four legged friends; Vigren the Siberian Laika, Doncho the Husky and Laila the Karakachan and Stilkie the tomcat (they will be very happy to accompany you on your walks if you like)

    Edinenie Priroda Svoboda,


    ☆ Vigren, Doncho, Laila Stilkie and my dear friend Hanne ☆

    PS: Actually I am not a business but a house of regeneration and so I can't offer payment to volunteers. I do work on the currency of L.O.V.E; the Liberation Of Vital Elements as a gift that volunteers could start using and sharing with the world..

    Please let me know if you like to come here and have any questions beforehand.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will learn about traditional living in the different seasons, connected with our ancestors. I like to incorporate the historical symbols of Bulgaria as well called the embroidery, so you will surely get some understanding of them and perhaps make a mural yourself..

    In the village of Batak are plenty of opportunities to dive into its local culture and get to know its famous and honorous history. You can find an enthographic museum which is in the same style like this house, a history museum where you can get to know more about the April uprising for freedom and the position of Batakians, the old church where a horror took place (..). There is a gallery where you can find local art and there are several restaurants, even one next doors.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Whenever you feel like ready to discover the surroundings you can find its beauty.

    The Batak reservoir is on 3 km distance, you can hike up the mountain (2000) m altitude, I can bring you to natural mineral hotsprings (20km distance), go for a daytrip to the Fotinivo waterfalls, get to know our local friends or make your own.

    In the nearby future I like to offer mountainbiking tours, have a bakery, Bhakti 2bushcrafting shelters horseriding trips, natural building workshops, traditional handcraft workshops, rewilding camps, cooking lessons, non formal educative programs for regenerative living, and more.. :)
