i am a writer, shiatsu practitioner, developing a project for alternative living, art in nature. I live in a dream place in nature, within a beautiful, alternative community, ideal for artists, musicians and writers. If you like contemplative life and meditation, if you like to be exposed to the elements, hear the wind, river, birds, this is your place. I love dancing, working on the land, walking in the wild, and watching the seasons and light changing. I feel very connected in this place, it nourishes me and fills me with love and inner peace, sense of purpose.

You will benefit from being part of the activities of the community: music, art, etc. I have sessons of creative writing at my place, meditation, yoga and shiatsu. You will have the opportunity to know natural beauty, waterfalls, walks in nature, time to be on your own and explore the area. You will meet interesting, creative, alternative people who share a common vision of honoring our beautiful mother Earth and work for a greener, sustainable life style in harmony with nature. The place is stunning, quiet, with a brook flowing on the bottom of the land and a beautiful waterfall. If you are an artist / musician /writer you will be inspired every second by the surroundings.
At the moment I need someone to help with physical work on the land, clearing, cutting wood with a chain saw, chopping wood. i need some strong will volunteers able to help making this place beautiful. So if you are creative and willing to get your hands dirty you are welcomed. Also there's some work needed in the veg. garden, making raised beds from wood branches, again, in a creative way, build seats in the garden with stone or bricks. Thanks.
Nice accommodation indoors. Possibility of camping in a big bell tent in the garden in the summer.
There's a national park, tracks, local alternative markets, people to meet and visit who share an alternative way of living and permaculture projects. There are always cultural and spiritual events happening. There's a big city 40 minutes away by bus and a village very nice to go and have a meal or drink. Waterfalls with pools to swim. River beaches.
