We ask each participant to contribute a total of 4 hours of working meditation during the week - to help with community tasks such as cleaning, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, washing dishes, and helping with children

There will be a special area for children, with organized activities every day. Children under 5 must be accompanied by an adult.

There is a pond on site - please keep a close eye on the children

The beach is nearby - please keep watch on children especially when they are swimming. The safety regulations require one parent or adult for every three children, and you’re asked to provide them with good security by remaining vigilant.

We’re sure you will do, and please, everyone watch out for the comfort and security of all the children. And for each other as well of course!
