Geraldine and Richard have owned and run a spiritual centre for health and healing on Mount Tamborine, Queensland Australia for nearly 20 years. We are in the process of building a similar centre in the Languedoc South of France where we need help with light building and gardening. Accommodation is indoors with showers and hot water. All meals are provided.
Where possible we use sustainable and `green` building techniques.
The use of random (uncut) stone and lime mortar has minimal
and even positive effects on the environment.
We ensure that the timber used is either sustainably grown or recycled.
Our aim is to create a space where groups can come to learn a range of creative, experiential and spiritual activities in a safe and peaceful environment.
We will welcome people of all nationalities and spiritual beliefs to share this facility.
Subjects which we hope to encourage will include, yoga,art,dance, astrology, meditation and healing.
We have now finished the building of an outdoor
labyrinth (see photo). This year we intend building an
'All Faiths' chapel and peace bell.
The work is general light building work.
We also need people to cook, clean and garden.
No experience in any of these things is essential as training is given.Often people come with no skills and experience, but leave confident and pleased with their development.
We spend our spare time watching films, playing board
games, outdoor games, swimming in the nearby lake and generally having fun.We are surrounded by beautiful scenery with lovely walks.
This is the third year we have invited helpx people to join our project.
We would ask you to look at our websites for more information.

We very much hope that you find our project worth supporting
Please note that we do not encourage the use of illegal drugs.

Thank you for spending time reading this.
