    Description

    *******SPECIAL: We'll do a bioconstruction work, filling and plastering the wooden structure of a house with straw and earth! It's a beautiful opportunity to learn about ecological building, great fun, and we'll need lots of hands, so if you have time, don't hesitate to apply!*******

    This is a starting community project where currently 4 adults and 4 children/teenagers are living. Our project is based on the cultivation of the inner attitude of loving awareness, which then expresses itself as the aspiration to live more harmoniuosly on the planet. We use all sorts of knowledge found in permaculture and science of sustainable living. The intention is to cocreate a holistic healing center and the promotion of a sustainable way of life.
    The place consists of 2 hectars of land surrounded by forest. The idea is to live together as a family sharing the land, everyone having their own space, (some still in process) and sharing communal infrastructures and projects. Supporting each other, learning through the processes. Having the commitment to take care of mother Earth, learn in every single aspect of life another way of being on this planet without harming, in harmony with all beings. We are vegetarians; some of the community members are artists and/or also committed to spiritual practices.
    We also have some animals: two donkeys, 11 chicken, a dog and a cat.

    We are in the process to prepare the land to receive guests for courses and workshops related to yoga, meditation, natural building, permaculture and more...
