It normally takes a couple of weeks for a person to get used to the simple living practices we engage in here at the Centre. You really have to think about your actions and become conscious of them in ways you do not consider in a consumer wasteful world. Here is where you can have rustic, close to nature experiences. The Earth energy can be both exquisite and palpable in this place. How it speaks to you, is through your connection to it.

This bond will be returned to all genuine applicants before their committed stay period has concluded. “”““We have had far, far to many unfit and lazy people arrive here, many of whom are addicted to social media, who are not interested in sustainability and do not want to contribute. If this is you, do not apply to come here; you will lose your bond.”“”“ Our places are only for those who are genuine and who want to have this unique learning and experiential opportunity.
