Living and Learning Retreat Space

After 14 years of patience and persistence, I am closer to being successful in my life vision project.
Thank you to two of my dearest friends, a couple of beloved soul mates that I am blessed to walk this planet with, I have received a donation of enough money to now go and buy a hectare or two in the Sierra of Oaxaca, where I always imagined the project to take place.

Permaculture Schloss Glarisegg

Permaculture Schloss Glarisegg

Vacant places for volunteers in the permaculture garden of the ecovillage Schloss Glarisegg, Switzerland

We have started setting up the permaculture garden within the ecovillage in 2012. Since then, it is constantly growing and changing. This year, we have build a pond, a small greenhouse for seedlings, a solar dryer, an outdoor kitchen, and have our first animals, namely ducks (who are busy eating the snales) and chickens. And, of course, from the start we have supplied the community as well as the seminar business with many, many fresh vegetables. And there are so many more opportunities and ideas... we take it step by step.

We want to consciously engage in life while developing our full human potential in connection with nature.
Our project is at the beginning and we are looking for open and determined people to build this community with us.

In summer 2009 our community bought an empty sanatorium, which was idle for many years, with a large park garden and several buildings. Presently we are reconstructing the main building transforming the many guest rooms into living spaces for singles, couples, families and groups. We have a number of community rooms and also special rooms for our children and youths.

Central to our vision is faith in the unity of humankind, regardless of culture or belief, and that this unity can be experienced in the heart.

Center of Unity creates an open space for the art of living and considers itself to be a school of heart and consciousness.

A place of communal living and working, we are committed to realising and putting into practice the principles of truth, simplicity, love, unity and peace in our everyday lives.

We are continuing and bringing to life the traditionally developed forms of spiritual practice from our founding time.

Ces

Ces

Experiencing the Ces community ?

Ces is a small village in the southern Swiss Alps. It is situated on a wild wide plain on 1450 m., high above the Leventina Valley, one of the main traffic connections between Northern and Southern Europe. The village has about 25 houses and stables, some of them in ruins, others already rebuilt. As there is no road leading to Ces, the only way to reach this spot is by walking up the mountain. This takes about two hours, depending on your physical condition.
