  • Description


    We are Lalitah and Utsav and our 2 cats. We are a Danish-Turkish couple involved in healing, meditation, breath, energy and consciousness. We are starting a mystery school online and in nature where we practice a new way of living as one with the nature and with ourselves.

    We are starting a pilot project in our vineyard where we will combine the following
    activities :
    - Cultivation and harvesting of grapes
    - Wine-making
    - Energy work, meditation and awareness - we will make a plant healing experiment.
    - Mindful living and working in a community mindset
    - Data collection and analysis for precision farming

    Together we will take care of our local grapes and make a first-time wine production under the supervision of a professional expert who will join the project. This is a process with some peak periods with pruning, harvesting and wine making - but in between there will be daily plant care and hopefully also veggie garden has started. We wish to document and make great story telling around it. Part of the project is to develop better methods for wine growing here and teach to the local community as well as keeping the tradition alive around wine growing, since it begins to die out a bit here. It will also be a part of the project to use work as meditation concept and bring the power of energy work into the product and the daily work. For the project there will also be an IT part and data collection part with possibility of creating a commercial data product. The project is aimed for young people.

    This profile is for any age. :)

    The wine project is on voluntarily basis. We are not running a business. What we offer here is entirely for cultural and spiritual exchange.

    As for the wine: We don't have a commercial alcohol production license as our wine production is very small and is for our own consumption.

    We are openminded people, who have travelled quite a lot ourselves. Utsav lived and worked 14 years in Canada. We met in India and had plans to downsize and travel to different eco-spiritual communities for a while, but it changed with Covid. We instead unexpetedly found the spot where we feel at home and want to invite to community ourselves.
    We are placed on a small Turkish island full of wineyards and with a clean clean air and great energy, lots of space around and we can see the sea almost from any spot on the island. There is wonderful pristine beaches and raw nature- There is one cute greek style town here, where everybody meets at marketday once a week.

    Lalitah is leading the Mystery School online as of now, plus she has experience with different art therapeutic disciplines. She loves to photograph and do create expressions of different kinds. Utsav is the owner of an IT company and leading the company remote. He loves to sing, create music and is often good for a guitar evening. His newest passion is composting.

    We will need some time for our businesses and for withdrawal to aloneness, so we can not be with you all the time. Though we love to also hang out and get to know you.
    Outside the summer season the there is not so many activities and entertainment on the island and in winter it can be quite windy, but still a good place for good walks and small hiking trips. In the summer season there is more beach life and town and restaurants and coffee shops opens.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We provide food, private room, meditations, wifi and occasional visits to surrounding areas if it fits in.
    We practice holistic methods that keep us centered, grounded, aligned and connected, which we want to bring into all the work we do here as well. While you stay with us you will be able to live meditatively while exchanging work with us. We have experience from different backgrounds like Osho, Babaji, tantra, healing, reiki and more.

    We are in the very beginning phase of starting an innovative communal living project in
    our 2-acres land, located in the gorgeous Turkish island Bozcaada in the Aegean sea. We are just getting used to live the island, digital nomad, growing garden lifestyle.

    The wine project started in March 2021. Right now we are looking for people to help with following tasks (we do not expect it to be the same person to all the tasks of course :)):

    - Practical help in the wine field and garden. There is some heavy work to do. We need help for pruning and maintenance, weeding, moving logs and rocks, vegetable sowing and maintenance.

    - Video production, content creation for the wine project, SoMe maintenance. To create publicity around the project and attract funding and participants.

    - Design and help us build Green house eventually

    - Vegetarian healthy cooking in periods.

    - Cat and house sitters in periods

    We are looking for hosting people who are interested in living a meditative life in nature with us and who have education/experience in the areas mentioned above.

    The pilot project is the first step of building a longer-term project that will involve year-round retreat/community living based on the same principles - which is our long-term dream. We plan on starting small with ourselves and the support we can get and let it grow with the right people, when they come.

    As a co-living space we expect that anyone here take part in the daily task such as preparing food, cleaning etc. besides the daily work.

    The wine project is on voluntarily basis. We are not running a business. What we offer here is entirely for cultural and spiritual exchange.

    Even though we are in a vineyard, learning to produce wine we rarely consume alchohol on the premises and don´t eat meat in daily life either. We expect you to follow that as well when you are here. We don´t support alcohol when meditating.
    No drugs of any kind.

    If you have music skills, art skills of any kind, bring your stuff and we can hopefully find time to do some of that together too.
