We are a small community of 8 people, living on a larger farm in the lower Rhine area, not far from NL. Built 1480. In 1990 it was turned into a open, non religious Buddhist seminar house. It is a previous farm with more than 30 seminar rooms, 30.000 sqm of land, 2 bigger halls. We do not do any farming (yet).
There is so much to do: the extended garden, helping in the house with the seminars, caring for the visitors, construction works, turning two circus wagons into a Japanese tea house and other more easy projects like repairing the bikes, doing office works, help with the internet... . There might be works, we did not even think of... until you came in. The house has an „artistic“ spirit and everybody is invited to contribute. There is no related experience, no religious or social concept or background you need.
You may find yourself wishing to take part in a Yoga class or mindfulness seminar or joining the open meditations in the morning and the evening. Our seminars are mostly on the weekend. Some go on for a week or two.

What we like to get: 4-5 hours of helping and cooperation. Your stay: minimum of 2 weeks and we are prepared for any longer stay.
What we can give: Accommodation, food, and a lovely, peaceful place. We have a library and other facilities you may use like the internet.
Next village is 5km away and next town is 8-10km away: Sonsbeck, Issum, Geldern or Kevelaer of Xanten... We can provide bicycles.

We like to know your profile, your experience, your strengths, your limits in your actions.
Our limited situation is, that we cannot take care of drug problems and or psychic illness.
