  • Description


    My name is Emma and my partner is Agustín, we live in a little village in North Spain near Burgos called Hornillos del Camino. Its on the Camino de Santiago. We met in 2014 when I was walking the Camino and we have a beautiful little boy -Eli, who is 4 years old.

    We have a beautiful garden were we grow our own vegetables, and I have started to use practices used by the Findhorn Project, using both mediation and connecting with the spirit of the garden to co-create a healthy garden.

    The village is very quaint, quiet and relaxing. It is on the meseta, so we have pilgrims from all over the world drop by every day. The people who walk the camino are particularly open and it is honestly a joy to see who comes past the door. A very unique and interesting experience.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You could learn about living in a group, we also live beside another workaway host, so we have a very international experience here with different helpers coming and going. You could learn about the spanish way of life. You could learn english, spanish and gardening. You could learn about welcoming travellers from all over the world on the camino. You could learn about the camino, why people walk this long route, the special stories of the travellers. You could walk the camino yourself and experience the special energy. On top of this, we are a place where we value kindness, you could help develop your own capacity for kindness and conscious intention.

    The village is quiet and tranquil and lends itself to a very peaceful stay. You will need to go to Burgos for some excitement. You will be staying at our home, we will provide all your food and make sure you have a comfortable warm stay with us. We like guests who are hard working and can fit into family life easily.

    Here's what we are seeking;

    1. A volunteer to live with us and help with childcare, house work and looking after the garden. The hours volunteering would be 25 hours a week, with all meals provided, either you or me (Emma) would cook. I am practising conscious parenting and influnced by both Eckhart Tolle and BK Shivani. I would ideally like someone who practices or has an interest in developing their own capacity for conscious awareness. In the garden I have been following the practices used by the Findhorn Foundation, connecting to the spirit of the garden, and would ask that you would also learn to use these practices. Time- frame April until possibly October 2020.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
