Our Place is a cultural association and a meditation center as well as a space for personal growth groups. It includes a small biological farm of 6 hectares situated at the foot of the Macchia della Magona and is 7 kms away from the sea along the wine route to Bolgheri. The main activities are the meditation center and farming. Often we are a group of friends who wish to live together in harmony, friendship and meditation. We are 2 people sharing the place with many friends helping. It is a beautiful nature spot.
We produce olive oil, jam, herb salt and firewood for our own consumption. Your help is needed all year round, in springtime for the pruning of 250 olive trees and 50 fruit trees and in autumn for the harvest of the olives. We are tending a herb garden and produce every year marmalades, mainly figs. In the colder season, we are cutting firewood in the forest for heating the houses. Our beautiful park with ancient trees needs some grass cutting. Further jobs to be done include maintenance like small repairs and painting, helping with and learning vegetarian and traditional Italian cooking. Some help with cleaning is needed. We are glad when you introduce the new helpers.
We offer accommodation in small wooden houses for your own. In the colder season, you will have a shared room in the house with attached bathroom and a wood stove.
We offer three meals a day. We cook vegetarian and eat communally.
You can participate in active and silent meditations and watch Osho discourses and receive individual reiki, ayurvedic or counseling sessions.
Your stay should last for at least 2 weeks, or longer if you fit into the center's lifestyle. Sometimes you will be surrounded by many people and sometimes by a few. One day a week you have off. We suggest bringing good shoes.
We speak Italian, English, German and French and have an Internet connection.
You can learn about life, meditations, living with others, maintenance of houses, farming like pruning olive- and fruit trees, producing olive oil, herbsalt and marmelade, gardening, vegetarian cooking and nature.
You can participate in active and silent meditations, watch Osho discourses and receive individual reiki, ayurvedic or counseling sessions.
