    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    *I'm polyglot : I have lived in many countries ( Rep. of Benin in Africa, Argentina, Brasil, many europeans countries, Israël, India, Nepal ) since my childhood so I have a kind of "world culture" to share ! I practice and learn also different languages ( french is my mothertongue language )

    *I'm a permaculture gardener for more than 40 years, I would be delighted to share my experience : what is permaculture, this holistic system, and the agricultural branch...what is a forest garden, how to build to build and care of a vegetable to recognise and eat eatable wild plants, medicinal plants too...

    *As a daily cooker, I can teach you my recipes, mainly vegetarian : I have lived three years in India, so the way I'm cooking is much influenced by what I've learned there, living among different families... I know a lot about macrobiotic, so I'm also pretty influenced by their recipes and japanese food, asian in general...

    *As an artist, you can be interested by my creations, either my landart pieces or paintings...and if you feel interested, we can create together natural sculptures ( landart )

    *As a meditation teacher ( Vajrayana, that means, tibetan buddhist way ) I can teach you how to meditate

    *As a tea master, you can learn the japanese spirit way of tea ceremony, cha do

    *As a daily yoga practitioner, you can learn with me a few asanas ( postures )

    *Japa Yoga : I can teach you if you're interested in the hindu and tibetan mantras chanting

    Welcome !!!

    First of all, a few words to describe everything we're doing : Be ourselves ! and that means : to care of oneself so we can care of the others and the planet...

    A house, 3000 m2 of garden, including a vegetable garden, 5km from the atlantic ocean, in the hugest european pine wood forest.
    Jean ( John in english ), me, 2 cats and two ducks are living here.
    Food : I use to cook mostly vegetarian meals but I eat meat when I feel like.

    We are mostly interested by sustainable living, inner living - spirituality - : yes, for us, the key is to care of oneself, to care of it's own piece of sand in order to make a beautifull beach....If one wants to change the world, one has to first change oneself....
    It's a remote place, so don't be afraid of loneliness !


    1- Gardening tasks like : mowing lawns, trimming hedges, tinkering...
    ESPECIALLY: people who are not afraid to work without bothering at least 4 hours a day.
    Jean needs someone to help him quite all the time because his hands make him suffer a lot.

    2-According to our budget, we can host only one person at a time ; sorry for couples !

    3-You can stay one week first and more if we feel good together.

    Best regards ! :-)
