Aeifaron Community

If you are tired of your 9-5 job and seek for something more meaningful, then you
should know this…

Here is what most people do…

They go traveling, volunteering for a certain amount of time and then they go back to their old life, continuing in the same old way…
Until they are fed up again and something in them is screaming like crazy: Your life is
boring!

This is nonsense…

And the truth is, some years ago WE were NO different….

We all used to seek a possibility to escape this Job-Family-House-Life stereotype.
This “going on vacation once per year” idea
Tired of doing the same things every day…
Same routines…
Drinking coffee at the same hours…
No space for Spontaneity…
No way to feel the Freedom we deserved…

This is like having a thorn in your foot, but being unwilling to remove it in order to walk further…

So, let’s look closer into this…

But first of all, let us tell you who we are…

__________________________________________________________________

For over 15 years, we have followed and received the Love, Wisdom, and Truth from the person who initiated this entire endeavor. Serving as our teacher, he holds a special place in our hearts, guiding us through weekly teaching seminars. If you are interested, you can apply to participate in these seminars, and applications will be evaluated based on inspiration, reverence, and openness.


Living up on a Greek mountain, our team works daily towards the completion of a ''Modern Asclepieion'' Yes, that’s right! We are building a healing sanctuary.
We aim to create a space which promotes «Εύ Ζήν» (Ef Zin) - a healthy and fulfilling life, that expresses our virtues and values.. that is why we call our Center – Community, a UNIVERSITY OF LIFE

We cultivate, nourish and provide the right “tools” for someone to experience the true essence of Life… to experience Freedom through Unity.

Can you imagine 50 people of different ages, nationalities and backgrounds living all together joyfully and in harmony?
As one big family… eating, working, singing, dancing all together?

Music actually plays a major role in our life.
We own one of the largest Gong collections (Thundering Cymbals)
Designers, painters, photographers, potters and more are part of our family and all are open on exchanging ideas.

Well, visit us and experience it yourself.

How we begun…

Everything started in 2006, when a man inspired by our vision, donated this Land to us. In the beginning, it was dry and barren.
The only plants that where there, were an old vineyard, a walnut tree and a plane tree.

We began cultivating the earth, making it fertile with love and dedication throughout all these years.
Today our trees, shrubs and herbs exceed 2000, with over 300 species.
The Plant kingdom is our main occupation.
We cultivate vegetables, fruits and nuts using a combination of natural methods..
Fukuoka, permaculture, biodynamic, traditional methods…

Green energy from solar panels is being used for our watering system and all the
facilities on our estate.

Over the years, the flora has evolved..
People and animals are now finding a hospitable place to grow and create beautiful relationships and friendships…
The original dream of harmonious co-existing came true…
It became our daily life!

All activities in our land are based on the truth of Unity.
By taking care of our plants and animals, we learn how to take better care of
ourselves.
Our approach towards all beings is respectful, honest and with love for perfection.

So, you might ask yourself… what makes this place so special?

Well, we have to say that..

Even though a farmer’s life is very enjoyable and adventurous, the reason of our
presence here goes way further…
It is the relationship with, first of all, ourselves…
And then the relationships between us…
That is the true goal!

We aim to awaken our full potential as human beings…
To become the best version of ourselves…
And to learn how to thrive no matter what the circumstances may be…
This is the secret of our harmonious and balanced CO-Existing!

So now you might ask yourself, what will I gain from this?

By reconnecting and Co-Existing with Nature…
You will get the possibility to see life with clear eyes…
You will be able to experience meaning in every moment…
And not only that
You will be in bliss no matter what you do, where you are and with whom.

We call it FREEDOM

But hey, we need to warn you…

This is NOT for everyone

We give you the keys, but you need to open the door yourself

Meaning that, whatever you will learn, discover and experience here, depends on
you…
how much you want to look deeper into yourself…
willing to let go of everything that you don’t need anymore…
and make space for new, beautiful things to enter your life.
So aside from the fact that we need help to maintain our beautiful land..
We want to say that…
There is a chance for you to make a turn in your life like we did..
Some of us live here and some only visit often…
But all of us can tell you that our lives have changed indeed..
Life has proven it!
Our perspective changed, from a dull, meaningless life to a magical game which is
to be experienced in joy and bliss in every moment…
With love for every moment…

This is what motivates us to welcome you here..
As well as, our wish for you to have such experiences as we do.

Sooo, did we spark your interest?

Write your application, tell us what you find interesting in our way of living, come by, meet us and…
experience what it means to COEXIST.

One last thing…

As we said before, we live according to our principles and virtues, promoting a
healthy life. Hence our life here is free from self-harming behaviours that include
addictive substances (e.g. smoking, drugs etc.).
We do like to enjoy an occasional glass of wine with dinner, or a cold beer on a hot
summer’s day of course, but at the same time we honor our principle “nothing in
excess”. Any kind of addictive substances are not welcome on our Land.

In order for you to be able to enjoy all of this, we have established certain principles that enable us to all coexist harmoniously. Whether you come for a day, a month, or more, respecting these principles is a basic condition to be able to enjoy our daily life together and co-create with inspiration and love.

Therefore, a necessary condition for someone to attend our place is:

-His behavior should be appropriate to the space, and to respect the plants, trees, the space in which he is, but above all to respect people, and in particular respect and follow the directions of those in charge of each field of work, as well as the reception staff who will guide him throughout his stay.
- Participates happily in tasks and facilitates the flow of tasks. We are all here to enjoy our Everyday life and not to burden each other.
- What's nicer than a sweet smile, so we encourage if you want to come, wear your best mood and the nicest smile and be sure to get all the smiles back in the multiple

Details about the work you might be doing:
As you can imagine, with over 2000 plants, the nearby fields where we cultivate our
vegetables, our farm where we take care of our animals etc., there is pleeenty of work
Especially in the summer time…
Planting, watering, harvesting, as well as having fun, laughing and eating juicy fruits
from the tree, all of it takes time and people!

Soo basically we need hands all over the Land. With a variety of tasks like gardening,
constructing, cooking, cleaning and making sure all places are nice and beautiful, you
can hardly be bored, trust us!

See here what’s happening throughout the summer:

Golden experiences May-November

-White and red mulberries start to grow in May and by the beginning of June we are
ready to shake the trees and enjoy a fruit rain!

-Are you ready to step on our tall ladders and collect cherries? If not, spring and
summertime is also the season of the herbs; we collect and dry them.

-During the summer many kinds of fruits are available in our gardens together with
Mediterranean vegetables.

-Did you leave some space for figs? If not, you can help us dry more fruits and collect
and store the nuts.

-During the autumn the grapes are sweet and ready to become grape juice and
concentrated grape syrup, we call it petimezi.

-If you want to swim in Greece during autumn, you can help us harvest the olive
trees and learn how to make the olives edible.

Worldwide popular archaeological areas of Mycenae, Corinth and Argos, the
site of Nemea where the Nemean Games took place in ancient times. Nafplio City with its
picturesque small roads is also an amazing place to visit and the beach is about a half

You can reach our community by national bus (Village of Ancient Nemea), although
we encourage you to come by car, in order to be independent and move around
freely, as we do not have any cars for common use.

We refer to our Center as a Spiritual, Therapeutic, Ecological center. Our focus extends beyond managing external situations; it involves being conscious of every action, emotion, and thought, ultimately mastering oneself. Our spirituality is grounded in the belief that All is One, a philosophy we aim to embody in every moment. For over 15 years, we have followed and received the Love, Wisdom, and Truth from the person who initiated this entire endeavor. Serving as our teacher, he holds a special place in our hearts, guiding us through weekly teaching seminars. If you are interested, you can apply to participate in these seminars, and applications will be evaluated based on inspiration, reverence, and openness. **How do you practice that?** 1. By working on the physical level in our fields and tending to matters related to Mother Earth. 2. By working on the emotional level with our brothers and sisters to harmonize relationships. 3. By working on the mental level using various meditation techniques that have proven effective for us. 4. By working on the spiritual level, fully embracing the Truth of Unity in everything. **What does the daily schedule look like, and where should I work on the estate?** The activities, duties, and projects vary depending on the season and the period of your stay. We are engaged in diverse tasks, including the care of over 2,000 trees, 500 herbs, vegetable gardens, and tending to the animal kingdom. These are the primary areas where you will be involved, from picking fruits to nurturing plants, applying manure, and feeding the animals. To provide you with a comprehensive experience, we encourage you to rotate through all the sectors and witness each activity firsthand. **Example of a Daily Routine:** -Wake up at 8:00 AM -Work until 9:00 AM -Breakfast from 9:00 AM to 9:30 AM -Work from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM -Lunch/Dinner at 6:00 PM (approx, every Monday & Friday we have a 1 hour informative - feedback meetings)  -Extra activities ** These are explained further down. We emphasize communal dining, fostering an environment where we eat together to share our daily experiences and, of course, our love for each other. We try to share a collective meal, allowing us to exchange our daily experiences and, of course, our love for each other! The rest of your day is open, and you're welcome to participate in other duties or join any ongoing activities. **How many people live in the community?** There are 40 permanent residents, and on weekends, an additional 20-40 people from Athens may join us. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Living up on a Greek mountain, our team works daily towards the completion of a ''Modern Asclepieion'' Yes, that’s right!

Aeifaron is a spécial place. A very spiritual place, even more spiritual than you would expect it to be. It gave me the opportunity to learn a lot, of course i grew with it. People are very nice and respectful!
They are very serious about their rules and expectations, also you’ll sleep in a big tent/room with all the other volunteers and it’s not always comfy, especially in the cold mornings :) but that's living close to nature and making friends with a similar mindset, so If that's what you're searching for, this place can be a very positive experience.

I don’t think I have the worlds to explain what my experience in this community has been.

They have a beautiful connection with the earth and the world. Opens your mind to new ideas and ways to live life.

They make you feel at home. I have found friends and family that I will carry with me forever. They have touched my soul in ways a can’t begin to comprehend. I am very thankful I found them in this life.

Thank you
Much love to everyone ♥️
