Hey! My name is Nadya, actually i live with my family in Moscow, but summer time we spend in the countryside and i need some help to arrange well this area. May be one day there will be retreat center)))
In previous life I was backpacker and active traveller as a guest and as a host as well, so i have big enough experience with hosting and traveling.
We have a 4 yo daughter. And she is also happy to get new friends.
This place is 600 km from Moscow (10h by train, then i pick you up by car). Its great opportunity to make a stop if you travel with Transsyberian Train.
Couples and families are preferable.
I cannot help you with visa, but can make a registration.

That is pretty huge experience - you can explore real Russian @middle of nowhere"? there never have been any foreigner tourists, you can walk in a forest, pick mushrooms and berries, swim in a river, eat organic milk products (there are farmers!)Great for city-detox, outdoor activities, hiking, meditation
That is a paradise for children - safety and freedom on the "wild nature".
I have a small wooden house in the deep countryside. It is a bit old and no one has lived there for a long time. and around it there are few ruined wooden buildings - that is, work-to dismember them for firewood. Also I need help to clear the place of "Bush" and grass and make beds for vegetables. And may be maintain something in the house.
Another option - English spoken lessons for local schoolers. They learn it in school, but dont have any practice. Their teacher also didn't have e real practice... So your assistance in that would be priceless. But your English sould be good enough.
We can cook together or separated, it depends on your special diet)))
Accommodation is pretty ascetic (i have the same) but no worse then in hostel definitely)). There is wooden toilet outside. Not sure yet if there will be hot water, we need to heat it by oven. There is no hospitals around - you should be healthy and experienced enough to work an live in countryside and in the nature.
just have a rest with nature. Forest, river, fishing, picking berryes, watching the stars at nights and reading a books. If you are very friendly, probably you can make an agreement with locals about visiting some special places by tractor
