Oasis of Being

Oasis of Being is in a hamlet called Rinsenegg located at 900 meters sea level on the Southern side of the Alp mountains bordering Italy and facing the valley called Gailtal in Austria.

There is only one house in Rinsenegg, and this is where we have been living since early 2022.

We renovated the house, maintaining its old character and structure and using environmental-friendly materials as much as possible. The fire has a central place in the house, with many fire places and chimneys going through the walls.
Our water comes from a spring water just above the house.

3 hectares of grass fields and woods belong to the house, but there are no boundaries or fences to the surrounding woods.

The permaculture garden is slowly taking shape with the newly planted fruits trees.
There is an apartment to welcome guests, the possibility to camp and a yoga room. We intend to host all Oasis of Being members who want to spend some time in nature and practice a conscious yogic way of living. We speak German, English, French, Italian, Spanish and Chinese.

Oasis of Being is an ideal place to experience in depth the alchemy of the 5 elements, their natural cycles and an inner silence.
