Making dreams reality, living fully, living your dream.
That’s what moved Bob and Wendy to take a shared vision and bring it to the world.
Bob has been a longtime macrobiotic teacher and counselor, having travelled the world, teaching and learning. Starting out in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, he founded the Cleveland Tofu Company and the East West Center of Cleveland ( a macrobiotic education center, with classes, dinners, major events, conselling, shiatsu, newsletters, etc). He lived in Germany for 5 years, where he organized macrobiotic summer camps and was Director of the Kushi Institute. He was head cook at the French Meadows Macrobiotic Summer Camp (California) for two years. His first book was written in Czech (Energie Potravin). He enjoys music, sports of all kinds, hiking and travel and pursuit of the unknown.
Wendy loves music, dance, travel and learning English. She enjoys hiking in nature and pursuing new interests, keeping fit and big challenges, like managing this center.
And Benji....he really runs the center, runs around joyfully in charge! Yeah!
Welcome to Wonder-Full-Life
People, a Center, a Home, a slice of Nature
New ways of doing things
Tried and true methods of agriculture, as well as cutting edge methods of growing food
A place to learn, to play, to rest, to charge your battery, to eat good food, to dance, to practice your English, to inspire yourself..... or do nothing at all.
We are located in Teplice nad Metují (North-East Bohemia) within a stones throw of the magnificent Rocks of Teplice and Rocks of Adršpach. The area is well-known for its great quality water and its unique cultural heritage, which especially comprises religious and folk architecture. The whole area is protected and is part of Landscape Protection Area (Czech CHKO) Broumovsko.
The centre was finished in Fall, 2015 after a large scale reconstruction of an old, dilapidated farm house. We used as many natural materials as we could, retaining comfort by combining natural with hi tech and beauty. It has clay walls, oak wood floors, solid pine and oak furniture. You sleep on natural latex mattresses and cotton sheets.
Fifteen people can be accommodated in five rooms. Three modern bathrooms are situated in the hallway. The lecture hall/gym is complete with mirrors, a data projector, automatic screen, hi-tech sound system and wireless mics. The dining hall/gathering room contains a fairy tale fireplace and piano. The professional kitchen is fully-equipped and is a dream for anyone who likes to cook. And the sauna … Winter can be long here… it just feels so great to throw your hot body in the fresh snow!
