We are a European couple that sees themselves as communal minded people, starting a dream we have had for decades. 31 and 35 years old, we have a 1-year-old baby boy. Our dream is to practice communal living combined with offering travellers and members a space for being and a peaceful natural environment to allow them to deprogram themselves to some degree. A real holiday feel, a retreat.
The hospitality exchange
Next, to start-up and farm work, we can offer you all kinds of outdoor spots to come and take a quiet retreat. We offer people a place in nature and/or our home when it is finished. You will be free to use the many dead trees around to build your own small cabin or shelter. There will be places for tents available and you can expect many visitors from various backgrounds. You can share your story with them one on one or as a group and expect reflections and responsible reactions.
We like to give hugs, massages, meals, open safe and neutral sharing places, a fireplace and share life in general in the way that makes your gifts and talents shine and make others happy. The only scenario is that many practical things will be communal, but you can find privacy in the surrounding natural and rural areas where there is a very low population density.
Types of possible activities
- wild food
- gathering and
- permaculture skills with us and
- show us how a proper community is made!
Live with us… permanently
We can consider you for living with us permanently, be it all year round or every year for 3 or more months (your choice). Summers are great here, the place needs a lot of start-up work to really be called a farm, but in our hearts, it already is a communal farm. We take it to step by step and are not into developing a commercial business out of it. CURRENTLY: The land is totally wild. We need to gather natural building materials, plan and build several small structures and talk with each other how and where the first gardens/greenhouses can be made. As you are feeling hopeful by now, we would love to make new friends and embrace you as an equal, while we work on these structures and ideas gradually.
A spiritual connection
The 2, 3, 4 of us are all spiritually gifted and this has given us some friction over the years with people who have really invested themselves in the non-authentic self that most of the city life offers them. Unnatural things that seem to us, designed to limit the deeper human experience by taking themselves too seriously as an ego, spirit and not enough as a free soul/natural person (again, based from our points of view).
In order to offer a genuine invitation for people with good vibes AND to prevent us from having too much friction with other vibes… We want to step towards clarity about our shared human reality. Making sure we understand each other’s preferences is important. The more outspoken and upfront people can be with us, the better we feel. Deeper perceptions about the differences between `vibes` are for us a necessary and almost daily routine. We will over time pose some scenarios to you and see how you feel about it, so we can get a sense of our being in comparison with your being.
Therefore, we ask for your understanding, responsibility and patience in these matters as these scenarios have taken 22 years in our hearts and minds to develop. We are calm enough now to let them come up and for us to be outspoken enough to allow people to choose their own experiences.
