It is no coincidence you come here. When you feel the connection, it means you are meant to be here and share your being and mirror the soul of that moment, in this place.

We're a non profit organisation and we combine high consciousness and new technology with ancient wisdom about healing and ecological wellness for all life! You receive organic meals and nice accomodation in natural environment!

Hi, I'm Brighde, your host.
Welcome to our grounded little paradise! Tred gently and with kindness to all living things and you will be rewarded multi-fold!

I'm a healer, counsellor, soundhealer, writer and singer.
We're organic flexitarians.
Raw food often happens, mostly during summer.
We have an alternative, ecological philosophy and try to live that way as much as possible.

Art is very important. As is grounded 'spiritual awareness' and love.
I'm in to tai-chi and every once in a while a yoga-guru comes to visit.
We have cats.
We keep bees, not for their honey but for their preservation. You can learn a lot about natural beekeeping here and you learn how to tred gently and with respect and cooperation around the bees and the cats. :-)
We also work together with other organisations like an organic farm cooperative nearby.
But it is quiet here, usually no big groups, you can have individual attention here as well as lots of retreat options.

FROM MARCH 2016 ON WE ARE DECONSTRUCTING PARTS OF A WOODEN HOUSE. SO NOW WE WELCOME PEOPLE WHO LIKE WORK WITH WOOD AND POWERTOOLS, CAREFULL DECONSTRUCTIONS, MOVING THINGS, CLEANING UP, REPLANTING BUSHES AND TREES, CUTTING TREES AND WOOD ... :-)))

NEXT WORKWEEKEND IS 7TH- 8TH OM MAY. YOU ARE WELCOME TO JOIN.

Accomodation:
Comfy gardenshed. Outside toilet. Common parts in the house. If need be an extra caravan. Gypsywagon when renovated.

For now the arrangement is: Maximum 3 to 4 guests during winter and around maximum 8 guests in summer.

A living room, a gipsywagon and a comfortable gardenshed with your own coocker and woodstove. Till August also a caravan.
The gardenshed has got a double bed and a bedcouch and there's carpet where we can put matresses or your campinggear on the floor. Check first if I don't have guests for the specific accomodation yet. You can also camp in the large garden.
The house has got a common bathroom, kitchen, officeroom and livingroom
The living room has got a lovely woodstove that heats the whole house.
There's plenty of space to camp with your tent and also for one camper.
There's internet but no WIFI, you have an outside toilet and you can have the use of the bathroom and kitchen in the house.
The food is mainly organic and vegetarian. Eating arrangements are agreed upon for each volunteering-situation.


There's so much to give, plenty to share and enough space here. If you need some time away, in nature but close to the city (Antwerp), this is a perfect spot. We live in 'De Brechtse heide', the woods, near a village called Sint-Job, the scenery includes squirrels, birds, horses from the neighbours and so forth and so on. You can have a lot of privacy and quiet time in your own space if you want. We don't need to entertain each-other all the time ;-) but quality sharing is always welcomed.

Various and flexible.
The work develops organically also, we ask a flexible attitude. The workpace is relaxed and steady. Don't stress!!!!! Do what you can. Joy and gratitude are the best fuels to drive your activity. Use the Force within. ;-)

Tell me what you can do, I will try to meet your talents, most likely we will find a place for you, as synchronicity usually takes care of these things! ;-)
But first of all I am looking for a wood-wizard,cartpenter, handy-man or woman,someone who is handy with building- experience and who understands the art of it and most of all loooves woodwork, creating with wood. We will need your help and expertise in the renovation work for the gypsywagon and the roof of the house. Our gratitude will be priceless!!! One or maximum two persons for longer time with a trial period of two weeks.
But also others who like this kind of living and want to contribute with their special talents are welcome!

AFTER THE WORK IN MARCH-APRIL, THERE IS ROOM FOR ONE WOODWIZARD LONG-TERM!
IF YOUR PASSION IS CONSTRUCTING WITH WOOD WITH (HE)ART AND SOUL, I HAVE A DELIGHTFULL DREAMJOB FOR YOU HERE!!!!! PLUS A NICE PRIVATE CABIN JUST FOR YOU!

THANK YOU!


LOOKING FOR WOODWORKERS! WHERE ARE YOU LUMBERJACKS? ;-)

This is the countryside, lots of forest and horse pastures, chapels, ponds, hiking and cycling-paths, typical Belgian cottages and villages nearby.
Antwerp is 25k from here, there is a bus going there every hour, just around the corner. If you are handy in fixing bicycles, you can borrow 1 to 3 of them here. ;-)
There's a local beerbrewery in a monastary nearby, you can taste their beer and cheese across the road of their property, one hour walk from here, through the forest.

We will probably do some cruising with you to nice spots (f.e. Antwerp, Lier, Turnhout, heather sanctuary, ...) or workspots in the area, for example picking our own food on the organic farm etc.

NO DRUGS!
NO DOGS!
No smoking in the house or other accomodation. You can smoke outside if you like.
No alcohol abuse, some on occasion, no problem.
No loud noises after 10 pm every day, on occasion, no problem.
No racism, no sexism, no violence nor putting people down.

About the bees!
Fear of bees can often be taken away by good information, if you really have a fobia for bees, please take your own responsability.
We have medicine for allergic reactions on a sting but if you leave bees alone, they will leave you alone as well. Please be a responsable owner of your own life!
We also have cats.
