  • Description

    We are travelling together as a couple, searching for projects to participate and learn from each other.

    Interested in alternative ways of education (unschooling or community/democratic schools) and lifestyle in the Nature. Sometimes play the didgeridoo, jews harp - community building with musical jams, sounds or just wandering around. Simpatize with permaculture principles and trying to realize them in daily life. Experience the wholeness of life (spirituality) in simple things.
    In the past made infographics and worked as a librarian, researcher and workshop holder in schools (3 years in Carl Rogers school Budapest).
    Also interested in community decision-making methods (like Sociocracy). Would like to experience how could work a healthy combination of community and "individuals", children and adults who can learn from everything happening around them.
    Would like to explore new ways of living, learning by doing (first observe of course:)).
    In the past already lived a half-a year in a permaculture farm in Catalonia as an EVS volunteer.
    For me would be important to be in and act in community and open up to learn new things and experience different perspectives.

    I just finished special education studies (specialization of autism spectrum and intelectual disability) in Budapest. During my studies I started to work in an association of art, movement and dance therapy (Artman Association). They work include inclusive dance jams, inclusive street and theatre performances and inclusive art and dance programmes for different schools. In these programmes people with and without disability can participate and dance together or for example the people with disability can be in a co-facilitating role in the art programme. I also worked as a "help-dancer", assistant and also as a facilitator. I participated in a lot of workshops based on dance therapy, body avareness (like Body-Mind centering, Laban Movementanalysis). I also studied singing, and I play basic on guitar and piano. I also worked in a primary school teaching improvasitonal drama classes for 3 years. I was a development teacher for a boy with autism for 4 years.
    I have a little experience in gardening but I love it. I participated in some permacultural workshop. We had the chance to start our first own little experience in the countryside this spring during the lockdown so I had a little chance to start and learn about garden and plants. Last summer we visited places in Romania where we could observe and learn about gardening and off-grid lifestyle. I also visited the permaculture farm in Catalonia for one month.
    In my whole life I lived in big cities, and now I would like to change. To start a more nature and human focused life:)
