October in Amonines

October was the month of the apples. We had an assembly line production of artisan applesauce. Experimenting with apricots, with sugar, without sugar and sultanas.



Work in the garden continues steadily. The last tomatoes are surprisingly still ripening. Next to the apple sauce, other treats include walnuts and rose hips prepared as tea. And, as the garden continues to attract animals from the surrounding area, we had some new visitors.


New: Breath Meditation Weekend
The Weekends of Silence now consist of the Asha Meditation Silence Weekend and the Breath Meditation Silence Weekend. The Asha Meditation Silence Weekend was formerly known as the Weekend of Silence. 

The Breath Meditation Silence Weekend is new. It is more intense, therefore it is for people who already have some experience with meditation and would like to work with it in depth. These weekends also provide support for people who have received the  Breath  to practise it in a communal setting.  

You can find further details on our website under the heading Weekends of Silence.

New: The exclusive guest retreat

Inspired by Yoginâm we decided to offer another form for your stay at the Asharum.
During a regular visit, normally you join for two hours every day in the work that needs to be done in and around the house and at your last day you clean your room.

Since regularly there are guests who like to visit us without these working activities we decided to facilitate this as well. With the new Exclusive Guest Retreat you can join the daily programme and all the meals fully and spend the time of the day the way you want.


Call: Home for young stray cat
Once again a cat has found its way to us in order to get cared for. He is quite young and not yet in optimal form. We feed him to make him strong and able to lead his life. He is beautiful, easy to befriend and looks a bit tough. We are looking for a home where he can be fairly independent (being a lot outside) and have the care and love of human beings. 

Are you open and longing for a new housemate? Please let us know!
