    Description

    Hi, there.! I am Marianthi and I live in a little farm in the region of Mount Pelion, the place of Ancient Centauri. I am a semi-retired doctor (nuclear medicine) but now I practice holistic and energy healing.

    I run a non-profit association for energy self-awareness and healing. During the summer I run some workshops here in my farm, for people who want to change their inner reality and receive some educational tools to practice towards achieving this change.

    I love living in nature with animals, plants and above all, the sea.! I have a small garden with vegetables, which provides me and the people I host, with our food that we grow and harvest ourselves

    I need help mainly with the farm work and gardening as well as house-keeping/cleaning and some repair work; for the period of April - May - June - July – August and September. I would like to host someone who wants to spend 2-3-4 weeks living in the farm, with or without me or other people, taking care of the pets, trees, plants and vegetables in the garden, and occasionally helping with cleaning the house and the farm. In spring we'll carry on a natural building workshop, in order to finish up the little hut. I welcome the assistance of someone who holds respect for nature, himself and the others. Come join me, if your heart calls for it! 😊

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Living in an idyllic rural setting, in harmony with nature, and the proximity to clean, blue sea are the main reasons to come stay here. You could also benefit from some energetic healing sessions, if you would like to enhance and balance your energy field. It can also be an opportunity to learn some Greek (language) and explore areas of archaeological interest nearby. The Greek lifestyle, the eco environment and everyday swimming will fill your batteries with long lasting energy.

    Help

    I ask for help from someone who enjoys this kind of work and knows how to do it. Taking care of the pets (3 dogs and 8 cats), trees, plants and vegetables in the garden, and sometimes helping with cleaning and maintenance/ repairs in the house and farm, for about 4-5 hours/ day, five days/ week.
    It is also important that you have a good relationship with animals, and especially dogs. Our dogs are very friendly and sociable, and a big part of our life here.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    There is a separate house (dorm) that can be used, when not occupied by other people. During the periods that we have many guests, you may need to stay in a tent (provided) or in the kiosk for a few nights. (But during these periods you will have the opportunity to take some healing sessions free).
    The accommodation arrangement will depend on the dates of your visit.
    From March to October the volunteers may stay in the 3-bed dorm, when we have no guests. During seminars the dorm is offered to the guests, so the volunteers will have to stay either in the small naturally-built hut, or in tents underneath the olive trees. Seminars usually last 5-7 days, after which you may return to the dorm.
    The dorm features en-suite bathroom and fireplace, and adjacent kitchen and second toilet.
    Please get in touch with your dates, and we will discuss the availability of the dorm.
    The hut is not finished yet, we will arrange a natural building workshop in April to add the final layers and roof. The workshop will be announced on our facebook page, and you are very welcome to join and participate.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Workawayers will have the opportunity to swim in a marvelous clean sea, hike on mountain paths in the woods, explore beauties of nature around on foot or riding our bikes. They can also visit the nearby city of Volos (museum, old churches, archaeological places etc). There are very frequent bus itineraries to near villages or Volos.
    Our diet here is vegan with happy eggs and occasional sea food, The volunteer may bring their own dairy from the shop, but are not allowed to cook or eat meat in our kitchens and premises. We appreciate that the volunteers as well as our guests are of the same mindset and belief in respecting our environment and animal friends. I live a quiet life when I am alone and I am very communicative when I have guests attending my workshops. There are also some rules to respect: No drugs, only limited alcohol consumption, respect of the quiet hours, keeping your space clean and tidy, not bringing any external people to our premises
