During the autumn of 2014 we were in proces of approval as a Danish LAND Center, Learning and Development Network of permaculture in practice. We are looking forward to different kinds of passing on what we do and what we have accomplished in the years to come; guides tours, workshops, seminars for everyone with an interest in how to create sustainability and resilience.

By the end of 2013 Anne had her diploma as a certified meditation teacher and mindfulness facilitator after 3 years of training. She has done a couple of introduction courses during the year 2014 and she feels committed to go on in 2015. Days of stilness are planned.

The television series which Mick and Sean are working on, is hopefully entering the later phases before presenting it to some producers and the like. It´s been solid work, hard at times but never felt like quitting.

For the last two years The Healing Garden on Fejø has been the core of our focus, especially Anne´s. We had a succesfull official opening of the Garden in August 2013 and hundreds of guests during the summer of 2014. Young people – or at least younger than us! – come from all over the world to volunteer in the proces of maintenance and continued development of the Garden. It is A LOT, but we do it slowly and listen to our singing hearts as we move, further and further into the exciting univers of the healing plants. Among many, many other things we held a wellness workshop (see pic.).

………. And there is the island of Fejø. We have participated in two giving vision days in 2013 and 2014, for the island. It is good to look forward sometimes and have a bit of an eagle´s view of things.

In Nov 2014 we participated in – and co-hosted – a wonderful workshop on sustainable economy, arranged by the Fejø Permaculture and Transition movement. More than 40 people joined in and the islanders invited people to sleep and have breakfast in their homes.

We have some plans ready for 2015.
In April we are hosting a “People and Permaculture” course with Peter Cow, arranged på the Danish LAND Center network, which in practise means primarily by Cathrine Dolleris.
In May we are participating and co-hosting the Transition Island Experience Week, of which we are in an exciting proces for the time being.
In June we are welcoming Mette Løgstrup to facilitate a day with Integral Dream work.
In July Anne is most likely going to Findhorn
In September Anne and Lou are hosting an introduction to permaculture in practise workshop.

…… and we can tell you, many other things!  Wwoof´ers for the 2015 season are checking in. We are looking forward to see Lou again, long term woof ´er and hopefully resident.

It is about to be as good as it gets! What wishes can we send other than the wishes for love and peace and the best possible health for all of you.

Nyhedsbrev januar 2012

Et år er gået siden vi startede vores Fejø Retreat blog/hjemmeside. Mange har fulgt os og støttet os, i det fysiske liv såvel som her i cyberspace, tak for dét.

Vi har det godt her midt i den mørke vinter og det er vi taknemmelige for. At have det godt er ikke nødvendigvis en selvfølge, selv om det er nemt at glemme i hverdagenes tumult og trummerum.

Efterårets vigtigste begivenhed her i vores lille smørhul er, at Hanne Oustrup er kommet rejsende til fra Orø Urtehave, medbringende helbredende planter, energi, lyst, visoner og erfaringer til at virkeliggøre forestillingerne om “Den Helbredende Have på Fejø”. Vi stifter en forening til at drive haven.

Her er den første skitse af haveanlægget, der er planlagt til 1500 m2 i alt.

På onsdag holder vi stiftende generalforsamling i foreningen “Den Helbredende Have på Fejø”, som skal drive haven og leje sig ind hos os.

Tove har sagt at hun ønsker at have sit eget sted på Fejø. Tove vil ikke flytte lige med det samme, og det er jo dejligt. Det betyder at vi får en skøn boligunit ledig i vores mini bofællesskab. Der er køkken, stue, spisekammer og på 1. sal to mindre værelser. Fælles med os er toilet/bad, bryggers og havestue. Der er masser af faciliteter, som man kan benytte, hvis man har noget man ønsker at forsøge at realisere i retning af at dyrke grøntsager, anlægge en demonstrations permakulturhave – der er masser af muligheder, blot det har noget med permakultur at gøre. Ja, og så skal vi aftale det.

Den Helbredende Have på Fejø  og Fejø Permakultur og Omstillingsinitiativ kommer til at have en del aktiviteter på Fejø Retreat  i 2012, det vi har planlagt indtil nu kan du se i kalenderen.

Mick er fortsat optaget af skrive TV serien og musikken dertil. Anne arbejder i Lolland Kommune og bliver mere og mere glad for det. Hun har blandt andet startet en lille mindfulness gruppe for nogle af kollegerne, det er meget tilfredsstillende.

Annes arbejdsplads flytter sydpå fra Nakskov til Vestenskov, primært af den grund har vi købt en lille bil. Desværre er elbilerne ikke så udviklede endnu, at vi ser os selv som kunder, derfor har vi valgt at købe en lille benzinbil med en god kørselsøkonomi.

På fotoet nedenfor er det sommeren 2010, med wwoof´ere og gæster. Lige nu – julen 2011 – nyder vi den lune stue og glæder os til sommer, fest og farver i 2012. Tak for året, der gik!
