Program Details

We just moved into this huge property (20 000sqm) in June, with the goal to create a Community and a Retreat Centre for healing people through consciousness work, such as holistic coaching and therapy, yoga and meditation.

Our aim at opening on 1st of September 2021 can only be realized if we quickly get some help to prepare the place! That’s why we accept friendly, caring and diligent volunteers from now till August 30th 2021.

Come and join the community for a few weeks to enjoy some time in the countryside and in our community of kind spiritual and like-minded people. We are international women and men in our 30's and 40's, mainly from Germany and France, speaking English, French, German and Spanish, alternative practitioners, coach and yoga teachers, all passionate about living a slow and healthy life close to nature, practicing yoga, meditating and spending quality time together.

Activities & Shift

Number of working hours per week: 26 hours, from Monday to Friday or Saturday, ( 1 or 2 days off per week, you choose) but all the hours need to be done.

As we are not so many in the community so far, and probably not 32hours are requested in the kitchen, you will be required to help on other tasks such as cleaning, gardening, furnishing or decorating, depending on what you are at ease with!

You will enjoy a daily yoga and/or meditation class!


Rules are important as community members have to live their lives in a happy but safe place.
Governance rules: The property belongs to 2 owners, Axel & Timm. Along with Gaelle, Timm's girlfriend, they have the final word to say on each decision that will be made on a daily basis.
Mona silence (morning and evening silence): until 8am, from 9pm on weekdays (till 12am on weekends)
Food blessing (personal or together at night)
No masks or vaccines are requested to live here!
There is no wifi connection here. You can connect to the internet using cables.
No alcohol consumption on the premises (or request any exception)
No smoking inside the house.
