    Hello Seekers! Ready for the self-reliant life-style? A life that is rich in meaning, in spiritual balance. Tiny-Country-House living. Rewarding outdoor living in an affordable dwelling with modern technology. A place to pamper your soul. All independent of what is going to come. Free of (student) debt in reach for everyone that is willing to work hard and has an open-mind that is able to take in new information.

    Three years ago we started to walk-that-walk, not talk-that-talk, we bought a rustic traditional farmhouse (homestead) in Galicia, Spain. It is a time capsule. Energy is flowing back in and everything is coming back to live. Trees are feeling the love and are giving more fruit. More and more birds are finding their home here. Horses come for a stay. There is even a remarkable story of a cat. Come share this delight with us and see what there is also for you. Feel the pleasure of working bare-feet in once's private secluded perma-culture/ eco garden. Shed more clothes when you get hot and wink at the little red-robin checking all you do.

    This is already part of our independent living. Step-by-step further away from the 'new normal', the scary life with masks. In our time-capsule we are more-and-more drifting away from the life with subsidies and universal-basic-income, masked at BSc-jobs, many of us have.

    At the farm we live a self-reliant life-style. It is hard work without the handouts! Better technology to live self reliant. Better understanding of one's self in relation to everything (spirituality). Biomeiler, working on better perma-culture, better cooking/food preservation, better healing and better living. More insights, skills and knowledge. Mediation in doing. Being-in-the-moment by doing. As when doing nothing.

    It is all very delicate. It allows only for one or two guests that are ready to submerge in the experience with us. The independent Country-Tiny-House living is very fresh and vibrant and can easily be mistaken with homestead living.

    You will find our breath and depth of knowledge on spiritual and worldly matters very rich, more than enough to see a substantial growth within yourself. We also hold the energetic space for you so you have the possibility to grow.

    At this moment we have an open spot for an advanced spiritual seeker. Being an equal opportunity host, we now give preference to a person bringing female energy. We seek seekers that have already integrated precognition into their being.

    For folks coming with a campervan, we offer a different track: a quiet place where you can live in your van. In return we ask you do some chores. You can opt to have your meals be paid out in money, so you can make your own in your van.

    Our live-style has been compared to ashram living. Where one's own spiritual growth goes hand in hand with getting things done! A double sense of accomplishment. Work connects you to this Earth, giving you firm roots for all the 'loftly' spiritual thoughts that get discussed in a day.

    Here at the farm we live without time, so it is not possible to say where we are and what we will be doing more than 3 weeks out. Please take that into account when you look at our calendar or when making travel arrangements. We can only commit for 100% for the next 21 days.

    We found that many a workawayer come here taking all their family and friends with them. The family & friends dont (want to) participate in the experience with us, but are always there influencing the mood & energy of the guest that is invited. Crazy people -you say- that come here? More common than you think! You carry everybody you know with you all day, nicely tugged into your smartphone.

    If you are able to come alone, we have hard 'do jobs' to submerge you in the experience. The free slots are for workaway and focus mainly on the upkeep of the estate some 4 hours a day. From the reviews you can see it comes with gifts.

    The property is full of laurel trees. They need constant pruning and being processed into firewood and bio mass for the compost heater (biomeiler). We could use your help with this. There is quite a bit of outdoor sandpapering and painting. Also shoveling of rocks & sand. All are hard physical work that requires sturdy shoes and pants to match. Gloves we provide. There is also hard work in the large perma-culture garden from weeding to natural fertilizer collection. We also do natural food collection hikes (foraging) and there is the food preservation which require fast hand-eye coordination. When there is time left there is always some cleaning to do. Think 4 hours + 1 hour helping preparing meals & cleaning up.

    The farm is located smack in the middle of vibrant nature that provides for awe inspiring walks. Located 30min from one of the most famous surf beaches in Europe: Pantin. it is a place on earth where you feel that the rain washes your worries away. 15minutes later life smiles on you with endless rainbows followed by a basking sun. Patiently it keeps on repeating this until you finally take notice ...and opens a new door in your heart.

    What you can find here: Love and kindness for all that is around us. Making life like the unfolding of a flower. Opening of the soul, shedding cultural programs stored in our bodies (massages), spiritual awakening, beyond all gender roles, Gender fluid and clothing optional. We live with the principles of Jainism as our guide. Come celebrate the rainbow of life with us. Lets shed the gloom. Lets already enjoy some Moksha!

    The farmhouse is small and close to 300 years in use. Out of respect and to honor all the (huge) families that have lived here throughout the centuries, we have changed little. In the house there is little privacy (see mention of tent & micro house below). Honouring that it is also the commitment of everybody staying here, to get closer to the roots of real life! The farmhouse might be small, but the grounds around it are 'endless' with lots of beautiful and romantic places where you find lots of space for yourself.

    We also have tents that you can set up on a private field and a tiny-tiny outhouse (micro-house) for you to sleep. For your own comfort: both are subject to good weather.

    Electricity comes from the sun, water from our deep well, cooking/heating comes from wood from our own trees, plumbing (bathroom) is the outdoors. (Outdoor plumbing was even the norm in this part of Spain until the '80!!)

    A train station is located 500m from our farmhouse. It is one of those cute trains that stops at every station and cuts straight through the local nature giving you a front row seat to amazing views.

    Weather in Galicia can be compared to this wonderful phrase I heard about the weather in Ireland . "What, dont like the weather? Just wait 15minutes! (It cycles through rain, heat, sun, hail,etc all in 1 hour)". Truth is: rain has something divine here. Note: This makes the weather a whole less hot than the rest of Spain or even Southern France.

    Also we have enough mosquitoes, flies & ticks ready to bother you when there is sun. To compensate for this you can regularly see at night: deer, foxes, badgers, wild boars, owls, mice and stars! Oh, so many stars!

    All meals are all together and vegetarian/vegan. The best are the evenings. As the Sun is slowly packing up it last rays and ready to say good-bye for the day, we match its slowness by grabbing a seat, have a drink and/or smoke and start talking about Life, the Universe and Everything. When we have dotted all the i's and crossed all our t's energetically, we fade into the night all balanced.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    North of Santiago de Compostella, nature in Galicia Coruña is breathtaking (see www. turismo.gal or googlemaps). You just cant believe this is Spain. It feels more like you walked in the fairy tale where the druids might just pop-up from behind the trees. It is all jaw dropping special to the point that you go: "Hey, Ultimate Creator, now you are really a show-off!!!"

    To get an idea of the hidden treasures of the land.
    Always good is googlemaps as your guide. Zoom in to Northern part of Coruña, Galicia, Spain

    We are a solar electricity location. The electricity reaching your van is enough for electronic devices and a small fridge but not enough for a water cooker. On cloudy days the electricity may be little to none. At night there might be a cut-off when the battery is low. The rest of the facilities are basic, as we have in the house.
