A quiet space to heal.
I'm seeking a space, a studio space.
With living space close by, or attached.
A place to lay my head, to retreat from the world, when that is needed.
A place to host retreat space for others on solitary retreat.
A place for silence, stillness, and contemplation.
A place where words and silence are equal.
A place to write (haiku, haibun, Zen poetry, journals and contemplations), play (shakuhachi Zen flute, singing bowl), sit (zazen, shikantaza), read, walk.
A place I can serve the world from, in whatever way that shows up.
A place in the mountains, or the forest.
An empty space.
A space that would welcome an aspirant Zen monk and her wife.
A place I can create from the raw, no furnishings needed.
Maybe it needs repair, or redecoration, or improvement, or even a roof.
Whatever it is, I am open to hear about it.
A place I can rent from a low rent, or exchange energy or skills for (guided meditation and silent sitting, guided walks, writing, book design, web design, gardening, decorating, caretaking).
Where am I seeking it? In the mountains, forests and wild places of Portugal, Spain or France.
Other places in Europe might be considered too, I am British by birth and a Portuguese resident, and feel drawn particularly to these three regions right now. I trust always that movement that arises naturally and intuitively.
When? Any time from mid March onwards. Later in the year is fine too, just not before. Longer term is helpful, but shorter term is also welcome for consideration.
If you might be able to offer such a space or place, or the potential to create one, please get in touch via private message, I look forward to hearing from you.
If you can't help in a practical way, your support would be gratefully received at patreon.com/theunsui/.
This is to be a place of healing, rest and silence, for myself, and all guests who choose join me there.
