Hiiii there fellow members of the human family!
We are in a process of becoming a place where ecological/regenerative activities are being practised. With this in our minds and hearts we intend to exchange knowledge with and between travelers, friends, neighbours and family so that souls could experience seismic shifts. We know that there is a need for this kind of places and our will is to offer this space where we transformational changes can occur.
While we are flying over unkown terrain on a plane that is being build on the way we are humbly searching for people who like to offer their knowledge, time, creativity and skills and who feel the need to cross the comfortzone of being mainstream and who's 'higher will' is to be active into regenerating our earth with holisticaly sound practices!
In exchange for your creative and pro active contribution towards this goal we are happy to be able sharing with you the resources we have, such as sleeping rooms, shower, kitchen, food and the inspirational comfort of being in a environment full of adventerous natural activities. We are located in between the Bataski Sneshnik mountain and the Batak reservoir and on 25 km distance from natural hotsprings.
At the moment we are renting this beautiful traditional house in the Rhodopi's and like to become owners so that we would become more independend. We dream about set up a yurth and build a shelter with local natural material higher up the mountain where we could offer more breathtaking experiences within a wild natural environment with the idea to extend the enthusiasm of co initiating/creating activities and informations that makes the still dominating system obsolete (without fighting it in any kind).
