Hello, we are Agatha, studying a masters in Law, singing. painting etc and Sophia her mother, Vipassana meditator, Sufi student, spiritual integration therapist and writer.
We need helpXers from 28th August through 20th September then we will be away for a while, who has been trained and would like to stay on and over winter should come and stay with us at this time and get to know us and your new home.
We are restoring a beautiful old house and two acres of land in a national forest nature reserve just 20 minutes outside Györ and near the idyllic Sziget Koz.
Sophia used work in journalism, photography and renovation of ancient buildings so can share knowledge on building, permaculture, foraging tree planting, food gardening, shamanic work, energy re balancing and meditation.
There is a mellow, magical, amplifying atmosphere on top of the hill where we live known as vine hill amiid old Oak and Pine Forest with Acacia and millions of different butterfly species.
It's a wildlife sanctuary, self sufficient garden and ceremonial space for visionary work.
We would like to create a pool which the wild animals also use to drink, so no chlorine etc so if anyone has expertise in natural pools and could supervise it’s construction that would be a dream for the wild animals as they need water and we need it too for swimming and relaxing!
The house needs restoration work, new wooden windows and work on the roof so excellent carpentry skills would be really appreciated !
Then there is the general upkeep like painting, windows, doors, tiling, painting walls with possible scope for murals.
The Trees need pruning, so sawing skills, preparing firewood, painting fences, walls , building some small outhouses, carpentry, woodwork.
Foodgardening, planting the food garden, orchard planting, digging , raking hay and so on.
All organic, biodynamic and with the planetary and lunar cycles in mind.
Our experience is with Sivananda Yoga, Vipassana Meditation, AuraTransformation, Kambo Medicine and FengShui/Space clearing. We are happy to introduce you to these methods if you are interested. We speak English, Italian, Hungarian, a little German and French.
Camping in the garden is possible its over 3000sq metres. There is a large attic room about 60sq ms for guests; please bring your own camping mattress if possible , we have a few, also sleeping bag.
There are two bathrooms, and one other attic room with a super comfy double bed and we give that to long term stayers, so it might be you.
Wifi via data sims available in Gyor - Tmobile have the strongest coverage.
Aim to arrive by 6pm on the day agreed so that gives time for rest & food and a chat.
Request alcohol/hungover energy is pretty heavy longterm so please don't bring that here. a glass of wine with a meal is fine but beyond that no thanks.
If you have requested to stay with us it helps us to let us know if you change your mind so that we can plan accordingly.
Rest and just hang out?
Possible for a small payment to cover your costs,15 euros a day for place to sleep, meal and shower.
Györ is located within an hours reach of the three major capitals of the area, Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna, and is a really lovely base for sightseeing, thermal bathing, natural swimming in the Danube and hiking. We are on the Euro 6 European bike trail too.
Györ is a beautiful pre Roman town with a series of museums and art galleries, a Roman and Baroque quarter.
There is a bus stop 15 mins walk from our house along the magic forest which connects you to Györ and the other towns in the area including Babolna, home to the Hungarian National Arabian Horse Stud.
We look forward to connecting with you,
Thanks for visiting our page Sophia & Agatha.
