“Everything that is really, really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom” – Albert Einstein
My first impression about Boodaville as a volunteer: Arrive – Breath – Stop your thoughts – Start working from inner silence. The first half of the day I spent with daily tasks of the very basic life in boodaville with feeding the wormcompost, chickens, making woodchips for the foodforest, cooking, having inspiring conversations with other volunteers,… The second half of the day I hade the freedom to work on my inner processes. Everyone does this in a different way. I chose reading and meditating. Others use theyr time to learn spanish or connecting with the land by riding a bike. So there is a lot of space of self-development, what creates amazing conversations and projects from everyone! On the weekend we hade a great treeplanting project going on. I learned about permaculture-principles and step by step we tried to bring the soil alive again, from really harsh conditions, the cultural way of farming have left for us.
In general i feel Boodaville is a place you can learn to build a new form of living together as society and learn to come back to your basic needs, slowing down from stressfull life and reconnect with the environment by working with the land.
I really appreciate the people I met and the awareness of the freedom to choose every second from new on! .people I met and the awareness of the freedom to choose every second from new on! .
