Intuitive healing space
An old pigsty at the top of a small hamlet, a small village in the middle of the poitou countryside. Many buildings, a prairie, an orchard a kitchen garden.
Many spaces to bloom in a creative, playful and fantastic.
Gay by nature, open to all sensitive and queer beings, a celebration of authentic individuals.
A vegetarian space with no tobacco or alcohol. Un place for happy and peaceful sobriety.
Open throughout the seasons, a caring and sharing lifestyle based on collaboration and intuition.
The principles of permaculture, working the earth, stone, metal and wood without forgetting the mind, body and soul, the relation to nature, the elements and spontaneity.
A place free of dogma, with tolerance, listening, caring, amusement, discovery, play and consent.
Gatherings and any stay at Fantasy Farm are intended to be therapeutic, an opportunity to change pace and benchmarks.
It is crucial to take the time to arrive, to be able to settle down, to enjoy the benefits of taking time to settle.
All are supposed to take an active part in the daily activities and these will include preparing meals, keeping the place and spaces clean and tidy, some gardening and general maintenance.
One week is the minimum expected for any first stay.
There is not really a maximum stay : long, semi-permanent, permanent stays are welcome, but these must be done naturally, over time, without haste, after reflection and discussion. An integration process is essential so that the harmony of the place is respected and that everything happens naturally, smoothly and coherently.
Throughout the year and the seasons, the moons and cycles follow one another, they are often an opportunity to reflect, to come together. The elements of the earth are sensitive to it and they mark the calendar of the gatherings on the farm.
It is also possible to stay outside these rhythms according to one's own rhythm and needs.
Yoga in its many dimensions is part of the daily life of the place and the project, two weekly classes are given in the village for the profit of the association on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. Therapeutic dance sessions are on Sundays, strengthening the link with the village and our neighbors.
The Fantastic Gatherings are inspired by nature and lunar cycles, the leisure and pleasure activities offered are co-created and intuitive. The practices of meditation, creation, connection with the earth and the elements, discussion groups, healing, rituals, dance, body touch, expression, sensuality, experimentation... are the privileged activities of most gatherings. During WorkWeeks, work will be mixed with leisure and pleasure activities too. All activities are based around consent.
Gatherings start on Saturday and end the following Sunday, arrival on site can be done from Friday.
