*Dear, brothers and sisters

*
*Welcome Home!

Below you will find the directions of the gathering.

Before that a few points which are important to remind.
*
/Everybody with an open mind and heart is welcome.
This is not a party or a festival, but a camp, a small community of travelers,
artists, nature lovers, musicians, healers, alternative peoples and more.

We are gathering to celebrate life in unity with nature and our hearts, sharing
knowledge trough free workshop for a whole moon cycle, Full Moon Celebration of
Love and Mystery 30-31th July.

It is a non commercial event; gift economy is applied by donation after every
meal to support logistics and food for all. For technical and spiritual reason
the gathering is vegetarian, the food served in the circle is vegan.

No needs for pictures when the main focus is to fully enjoy every moment without
attachment.

To avoid trashing the place and our self, the use of alcohol and chemical drugs
are not welcome.

Leave you electronic devises at home.

Bring everything what u expect to find.
Those are not rules but important guidelines to keep the dynamic of the
gathering healthy.
No leader, no organizer, we share the same home and we are one big family.

Harm no living thing, We are caretakers of this land./

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

On my travels, I was offered hospitality everywhere I went to. I would like to do the same for other travellers. Also, I can learn something from every person. Even if nothing will be said. Come and use my house like Your own!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It is a great feeling that in every corner of our planet, there are good people. I have spent many years travelling, and I have the best experiences.
For one year, I was even hosted on people's sailboats - sailing across the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean. (Then, I got my own 33' trimaran sailboat for $150 (!!!), fixed it up and sailed (three hurricanes!) and occassionally also hosted people on the boat...
Since 2008, I have been couchsurfing with truly fantastic people, many times and in many places: Canada, USA, Mallorca, Catalunya, France, Austria, Poland, Ukraine. And I hosted many people at my house, too. I LOVE CS!!!

CS gathers the coolest people on this planet I think. People that are not paranoid, that are open, hospitable, that know how to live and what is truly important... I feel awesome in this community. If I one day make a list of all the great people I met thru CS, it is gonna be a loooong list!

Interests

Virtually every aspect of this life and this whole world interests me! Every single person on this or any other planet interests me! Everybody is interesting, everybody has his/her own way of life...
CS hosts are a lot like people who pick up hitch-hikers: open, interested in life, non-paranoid, non-ordinary... that is why I feel soooo fantastic meeting all these colourful people.

Music, Movies & Books

Any music, film or book made not for money, but from the urge to express something from the inside, create something good. The list can be long, from Baraka to Radiohead to native Moravian singers.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Sailing across the ocean and surviving three hurricanes, climbing to 5671 m, being on a mountain that does not have a name yet, I was perhaps the first person there ever,
people's eyes..., jumping off an airplane, paragliding, hanggliding, kayaking in tundra/tayga,... to be continued... :-)

Teach, Learn, Share

[b] This world is a great place. And I can show it to You![/b]

I was always striving to learn... and so now I know as much as a 299 year old :-) I want to keep learning, and I will, it is so exciting, but I also keep in mind that now it is the time to USE the knowledge and to create great new things with it.
In any case, I am always open to learn from anybody, any age, any anything.

What can I teach You? Even though I was a high school teacher at some point, I will not teach You anything unless: You ask, or You learn from everything You see. I believe that everybody will learn what they need to learn.
My skills: just like anybody else, I can do anything :-) From candlemaking to photography, from skiing to geography... Czech, English languages, hypnosis, paragliding, going down rivers in wilderness, sailing, climbing, hitching, genius loci of various places, guitar, accordeon, piano, flute and just about any instrument playing, how propaganda works, how advertising works, sociology, psychology, ecology, how to make dandelion honey or saké, voluntary humbleness :-) What I can do very well thouugh is to be able to survive anywhere without money if I need to. All I need is a sleeping bag and my head. To know that I don't really need anything gives me a great sense of freedom. I am not talking about couchsurfing now. I can survive on the street or in the deepest wilderness. And even enjoy it. I can really do almost anything and if not, I can learn it. There are some activities that require a very strong talent or many years of preparation, I respect this and exclude these from my scope, but other than that...

Rainbow Gatherings! See You at the Gathering! Look it up at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainbow_Gathering if You don't know what it is, it is a fantastic experience! Hundred s of cool people from all over the world in the mountains in a very free and creative way... my photos from one gathering are here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1387228559330.2056128.1190529190&type=1&l=0bba907336
