    Description

    Hello and sat nam, dear all!
    My name is Atma Hari/Janina Baeder and I would like to welcome you to join me in July in my 200 year old farm house in North Germany. It’s a beautiful house and is in very good shape but could use some maintenance: painting doors, redoing the floor, mowing the large garden and building a fireplace. As we will be a big group someone who likes to cook nourishing vegetarian food would be very appreciated.

    What I am looking for -

    In July, I’d like to invite 5-10 work awayers for the tasks mentioned above. This is rather for a focussed project time (or even a yoga retreat…) than ongoing tasks year round. Arriving Sunday, 3rd and leaving Sunday 24th would be ideal. If you can't make it for the whole 3 weeks, come for one or two - arrival & departure day should still be a Sunday (for me it’s important to start a process and projects together, go through everything that comes up and party at the end to celebrate our learnings and accomplishments!).
    Anyone who is open to help in the garden, to engage in refurbishing or to cook for us and do some house cleaning is very much welcome. I highly appreciate curious, self-reflective people.

    About me -

    For nearly 20 years I was quite successful in the business world before I quit this line of work at 45. Now I am 51 and live such a "rich" life practicing and teaching yoga, serving people and living in nature. I have done several kundalini yoga and doula trainings, my most recent enrolment is to a death doula course. Systemic coaching is another one of my offerings. As sailing is also a love of mine, I Iike to combine all of these things by taking my coachees on a sailing boat and practice yoga there as well! Or even in the desert (Sahara). In the house, there are no kids, no husband living with me.

    About my project -

    In the near future I will create a project which combines the two most important processes in our lives in one place: coming to earth and leaving it. I.e. giving birth/being born and dying. It won't exactly be the merging a birth house and a hospice and yet it will be similar: giving space and a supporting community in nature that enables the individuals to embark on their journey consciously and with spiritual support.
    For this project I will invite the participation of workawayers/sevadars (from the Kundalini yoga community). This is the reason I am opening my house for three weeks this summer to get a feel for having volunteers before I fully embark on this project.
    By coming here in July, you will support me in materialising my vision of a place where birth and death may take place in a loving conscious community surrounded by nature - demonstrating the cycles of life itself. (In July this project won’t yet have started).

    During your stay (“bonus”) -

    At the beginning of your stay I’ll share some principles of "communication without force" and some guidelines so that our living here together for 3 weeks is an enriching experience for all.
    I am a kundalini yogi and I practice sadhana every morning (reciting a prayer, then practice yoga and then chanting mantras); you are more than welcome to do it with me. Also, at night I do a healing meditation which is an open practice for you to join as well. Maybe I'll organise a mantra concert while you are here!

    What you can expect -
    An average day looks like this; morning yoga practice, lovely breakfast in the garden, start our work with joy and enthusiasm, delicious lunch, then free time: taking a walk, drive to the city, have deep conversations or the like. Dinner will be served at around 6pm and afterwords we can sit together (at the fireplace or in the yoga room) to chant one or two mantras and do a meditation. I ask that silence after 10pm is respected. Saturday evening we could have a special event - dancing, watching a movie, open stage, inviting more friends or the like.

    On three sides there are only fields and forest - its pure nature. In 10 minutes walk there is a lake for swimming. My only neighbours are a nice family with horses, pigs, cats, etc.

    The medium sized city of Oldenburg is 20 minutes away by bus. As there is a university there are young people and the cute shops and cafes make the downtown city attractive. The nightlife is good too! There are opportunities for dancing and doing art activities.
    If you like bigger cities Bremen is not too far. This ancient city is very beautiful.
    Also, the north sea (Dangast) is only 45 minutes away by car.
    And I am sure, you'll like it so much here at the house and in the garden that you rather stay here ... :-) ...

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    First of all it's community. You’ll meet other work away people (as said, I am open for 5-10) and my friends and yoga students coming by especially in the summer for the wonderful garden and leisure activities I am offering.
    I spent 40 days in an ashram in Portugal beginning of this year and just being together with inspiring international people was amazing!
    Second you'll get really insight into Kundalini Yoga; its teachings, the life style, its tradition, etc. There'll be yoga every morning, mantra chanting at night and I am happy to provide for everyone a 1:1 session to read your numbers (birth date) and what clues you could get out from them for your life.
    Third: you get to understand what living in Germany, especially in the lovely countryside as a farmer means and how it is changing due to globalisation - and at the same time you'll see small initiatives around the area here which do things differently.
    Fourth: At the start of the three weeks there will be a trainer of "communication without force" (German: GfK). Also, I will give a small workshop on communication and feedback. So, this will help us as a group for the three weeks and it will give you the opportunity to learn, try out and reflect on in a "safe" environment.

    I plan on having 5-10 work away people staying during those 3 weeks, so there will be the usual "work" as cleaning the house and cooking (best is vegan and gluten-free; vegetarian is a must) in order to have a good time here altogether.
    There is garden work: The lawn needs to be mawned twice a week and I'd like to start an area for growing herbs. Also, I'd like to build an area for a fireplace and a stone wall half way around it so we can sit in the evening sheltered from wind and getting warmth from the sun-heated stones. Also, a fence connecting the house and the barn would be good.
    As said, the house is 200 years old: if I could find someone who is willing to paint some of the doors and the window frames, that would be great! Also, one of the floors need some redoing.

    I would like to practice my Spanish and Italian (although I mix them quite often). I am happy to listen & correct mistakes when I hear them in English and German.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    I have two caravans (one for a couple or alone; the other one for 2 couples or 2 people) which can be used plus two rooms (shared by two people) plus a huge garden for tents. The rooms won't have beds but rather mattresses.

    Regarding food: I am planning on a vegan diet, i.e. porridge and fruits in the morning (after yoga), soup/salad/vegetables/beans/rice/etc. for lunch and a light dinner (salad/soup).
