About

Finland
Villa Westergard is a tantric eco-community and course center based on sustainability and meditation. Simon teaches Open Floor movement practice/dance and gives classes for the woofers. Shanti is a teacher of meditation and tantra and willing to open the philosophy for any woofer who is interested but you can also stay here without hearing anything about tantra and meditation if you don't make an initiative for it! Anyway tantric/shamanistic/eco lifestyle can be noticed all over the place.
Aurora is a very sporty wilderness guide and might take you on adventures on your day off.
Fanny's kids will be waking you up early in the morning (if you are not a good sleeper) and entertain you during your breakfast and dinner as you share kitchen with them ;-)
Usually we have lunch (made by Shanti) downstairs together. All meals and food iare provided even if you'll make dinner together with the other woofers.
During summertime there are workshops and trainings in the house so at these periods 2-5 days in a row, you might need to leave your room and sleep on a mattress or in a tent to give space to the paying guests. If we have many woofers at the same time as usual, you'll be sharing room with others.

We get about 10 requests every week and unfortunately many people never show up nor cancel even if they change their mind. This means that others who are sincere may not be able to come. I will wright you a negative reference if you don't show up without cancelling!!
Please send a hosting request ONLY if you are really serious about coming here and will cancel in good time if you change your mind, to give space to others!!!

In summertime we welcome volunteers helping with work in the organic food garden, painting, construction, and animals. The closest town is Tammisaari. The summers are usually warm and pleasant.
The center focuses on Tantra, meditation, therapy work, holistic well-being, and spiritual growth.
A very important part of the community and daily life here, are the animals, that are respected and treated as individuals rather than means for production.
Food is vegetarian and we produce our own yummy goat cheeses and yoghurt.
We are especially welcoming people who speak Spanish!
Any kind of carpentry or other creative skills are especially welcome!

We prefer people who want to stay for at least 4 weeks. 2 weeks is absolute minimum and accepted only for special reasons. We like people to be part of our community rather than visiting tourists. You also need to feel comfortable with kids and people around you as the house can be pretty crowded at times!

We are a non smoking community!
