Shambhala

You will learn something new. How to live in nature, frugal way of life, edible and healing plants, ecological building and about spiritual connection betwen humans and nature.

We are 3 ladies Danijela, Danica & Sanja with our own properties & we really appreciate mail or couple help around our properties. There are lot of various jobs like building, gardening, help to Danica keeping her little son, walking dogs, maintainence & it is never boring. We are all vegetarians & trying to live in harmony with nature as much as we can. We lead simple lives & like to hang with other people from eco village & guests. We all have lots of cats and dogs that we are saving. We are part of the Blatuša eco village, which is often visited by other workaway voulonteers. We are surrounded by forests and nature, a lake and a spa are close by, and Zagreb is 1 hour away. Nearby are springs of drinking water and an area rich in wild plants and mushrooms. We are going to teach you an ecological way of life with nature and spiritual values. The eco village is multinational in character and we all speak English, some also Italian and German. We have no problem with smokers, but drugs and alcohol are not welcome in our households. This is a very nice way to find out how the eco-village works and the relationships between its inhabitants develop.

I spent a week in Danijela's home. It was an amazing experience. She is adorable and her cats and dogs too. I mainly helped her to clean and renovate the house. The place is so peaceful and lovely. I will return there for sure.

We spent our time at Danijela's and Sonja's homes during our stay. They were both extremely welcoming and made us feel comfortable and at home, as well as providing everything to us we needed. We learnt a lot during our visit, found the work beneficial and helpful to learn and build more skills we can use in the future. Absolutely lovely people and 100% recommend this visit to anyone looking to gain knowledge about Croatia and permaculture :)

I volunteered with both Danijela and Sonja. They were both lovely, welcoming and flexible with working hours and days. The work was fun, I learnt lots of new skills and information about permaculture. The village is beautiful and great for walks. I would definitely recommend staying here if you're into ecology and want to learn about living a self sufficient life style. The food is delicious, you deffo will not go hungry!

Danijela, Sanja and Danica treated me like one of the family. It was my first volunteering in Europe and they treated me super well. I learned a lot about Croatia and its culture. They also cook a very tasty meal 🤭. I hope to return soon 🥰.

I had a great time at this experience. The three hosts were all very nice and treated me like a family. I worked at all of their places and stayed at two of them. The work was, especially at the beginning, tiring due to the physical labor, but you can get used to it day by day. And the nature of the village was beautiful and peaceful, the villagers were hospitable and had a close relationship with one another. Most of them speak English, so don't worry even if you don't speak Croatian. I recommend any nature lovers and those who are interested in staying in a village to do this volunteering.
