Gratitude for your interest in visiting us! It is a pleasure for us to receive you!
However, to make our daily life simpler, we have some quite defined ways to welcome visitors, and we ask you to please respect them and not show up unexpectedly. We invite you to read below, in order to come in the best conditions for you and for us at Eotopia.
If you are interested in joining our project, we ask you to read this whole page before contacting us, specifically our section on Long Term Immersions.
Dates for 2021
11 – 21 October
The participatory project for the mass heater is cancelled.
We’re looking for someone who can lead this kind of work, to build a beautiful mass heater on our livingroom. If you have these skills or if you have in your contacts a person able to support us here, big thanks in advance for sending us this beautiful information!
Let’s go back to this visit period:
Planned over a week for a small number of people. This period is designed for those who already made a change of direction in their life, who are willing to experience the living together and who are ready to take part in the life of a group, in meetings, in tasks and possibly in the various works and reflections in progress at Eotopia.
You are always welcome to do what you feel like, to live at your own daily rythm, or to join the dynamic of the place.
5 – 15 November
Inner Expressions is the first of its kind – 10 days for us to come together and explore what’s inside of us that needs expressing. We will have a workshops from improv, music explorations, and ecstatic dance to family constellations, meditation, and Internal Family Systems.
These 10 days are for you to connect with whatever is inside of you that needs expressing, whether that is huge ball of energy and joy or the need to give yourself a hug. Winter is coming and you can use this time to set your intentions for the winter. This season of introspection doesn’t have to be heavy and depressive, you get to set the intentions for how you want to welcome the new season.
We will continue to work as normal with gift economy, that means we don’t have a fixed price to join Inner Expressions, donations to support the project and cover cost of food are welcome. Special circumstances: We are inviting a couple of experts to share their workshops with us and we want to be able to cover the cost of their food and travel. We will calculate how much this is and communicate a suggested donation per person. Anything you give on top of the suggestion will go towards the facilitator to cover the normal cost of their workshops.
Please read our values to understand what kind of community we are.
Since Inner Expressions is not exactly a “retreat” we ask that everyone participates in the daily tasks of maintaining a community.
HOW TO SIGN UP – please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your information and telling us if you’re interested in leading a workshop.
Note: We’re only accepting a small number of people staying on their own vans or tent (it’s very cold but unfortunately our dorms are full..)

No need to have specific competences, the important point is that you come with your motivation and your nicest smile.

It is the possibility to come for three days to Eotopia, above all as a moment of discovery of the place and the project.

You can camp in your tent or hammock.

LONG TERM IMMERSIONS
Planned for a month or two for a family or one/two people who have previously visited Eotopia either during periods of visits, open door days or the like. This immersion is designed for people who want to create their own eco-place or join ours, or who want to help develop one or more pillars of the project over a longer period of time. We cultivate transparency through very regular times of sharing of feelings, and we hope that this will allow all to feel good and to regulate possible tensions during this longer visit period. We leave the door open to shorten the duration of the stay if this option seems more fluid for everyone.
If your objective is to become part of the project, we invite you to think carefully about all the principles of Eotopia, to take the time to read carefully the pages of the site, in particular the vision, missions and restrictions. We feel that the people who have already joined the project are those who could have created it themselves, already feeling in agreement with all the values and the vision.
If you have any other questions, please contact us at email@example.com
With the best of wishes,
The Eotopia family.
