Why

Our mission is to restyle modern life. Getting the focus again on the things that are really important in life.
A lot of people are convinced that (thanks to the industrial revolution) we are smarter, living in a more comfortable way and having a longer life. But in fact none of this is really true : most of us have lost comfort and longer life by a bad health, bad nutrition, less freedom and a high demanding society. We’ve lost knowledge in astrology, personal intuition, connection with plants, ourselves, living with seasons and natural energy sources. We’ve lost our familybound and group spirit in the West , you can still find it in the East , but it is also disappearing fast.
Bottomline : most of us are loosing themselves in a fake world created by commercial purposes. They are disorientated, lonely, eating very badly and most of the time, feeling unhappy!
Pills mask all symptoms but don’t solve the fundamental cause and even more, cause certainly problems in the future. If you really think about it, that’s exactly what the pharmaceuticals want : selling more pills. They don’t want to solve the problem, they like to maintain it. Ever thought about why the pill against aids doesn’t cure it?
If you look at it from a distance: in our society, people care more for their cars then for their body. Imagine going to the garage with your car because it makes a funny noise and the technician gives you earplugs to solve the problem? You will not be satisfied won’t you? Isn’t it exactly the same when the doctor subscribes you a pill? Chinese medicine proved 1000 years ago that pain on your stomach can have a lot of different reasons different from the stomach itself. Why do so much people have confidence in someone who got pay from the pharmaceuticals to sell you a certain medicine? We should learn in school about being our own doctor…
And then there is the importance of good food. How many of us spend rather 100 euros on luxury instead of healthy food? Isn’t food the most fundamental need of any living creature? Nowadays everything is about making money and showing others how much luxury we have and in the inside we are just feeling miserable.
Facing the truth looks maybe a bit pessimistic but it is not at all! You have to go through it in order to see the real beauty of life again…

Abriecosy would like to bring people together, who would like to change their way, be inspired and maybe inspire themselves. In Abriecosy , we want to bring awareness in the things we do, the impact on ourselves and our health, on others (in their uniqueness) and on nature. We want to create a space where looking for a balance is essential, just like nature does. Abri means shelter, the eco stands for ecological (and of course organic) and cosy for the place that brings peace in your head and in your heart. .
On a south orientated hillsite, not far from an idyllic village Bargemon (French Provence), we found the perfect location for our project: somewhat isolated, in the middle of the forrest with breathtaking views. Abriecosy has place to receive guests: on the one hand lodging for guests who want to be inspired by an eco vacation or a spiritual class , on the other hand for volunteers and sympathetics.
Some watersources, good ground and the famous provencial terrases are ideal to establish permaculture. The old olive trees, almond trees, fruit trees make this place a special place.
I want to invite teachers , who give classes about more conscious living, to organise it here.

Why Bargemon?

Bargemon is an idyllic little village with 7 fountains, called the pearl of the Haut Var. Bargemon is a much used setting in many paintings because of the many picturesque little alleys and squares.

Not only the village itself is one of the most beautiful of the region but it’s location is perfect for discovering de Provence. It is only 30 minutes away from the “Côte d’Azur” or in the other direction of the Alpes with the famous “Gorges du Verdon”. A little further you can easily reach Nice, Cannes or some ski stations in the Alpes.

Bargemon is located in the mountains where you can enjoy the amazing views but at the same time the warm Mediterranean climate.  The region is known for it’s olive oil and wine production.

Why vegan?

In nature bacteria are the little animals who are responsible for breaking off all organic material. We can distinguish two different types : the aerobe and anaerobe bacteria. The main difference is that the aerobe bacteria needs oxygen, the anaerobe doesn’t. (meer…)

Why ecological?

It is already a long time clear that chemical substances have a tremendous impact on our health, and the health of other living creatures. This impact shows only after a certain amount of time, different for one person or another. Our body becomes full of toxins that slow down the good functioning of our organs. Nature is already polluted in a way we can not return to 100 years ago. The government states that a small dosage of chemical in one product doesn’t harm you, but they never show the impact of the cocktail we get by using all the “convenient” product every day. Plastic packaging, exhaust gases, gases of paint and concrete in our homes, exterminators, clothing, food, deodorants, cosmetics, chemical sugars, chemical salt, flavor enhancers, cleaning products,…I can go on and fill the whole page.

Do we have to be pessimistic? No not at all , in fact it is the opposite, we need to change our habits! With Abriecosy we want to search for natural alternatives in order to eliminate most chemicals in our daily life. We can not be totally free anymore but it makes a huge difference if we eliminate the things we have impact on.

We always impact other life in order to live. Even if you are vegan, plants you eat die to give you the energy to live. The world of bacteria that lives in the soil nurturing the plants are destroyed just by making a hole in the ground. Every step we take , we crush life under our feet. So it can not be perfect but trying to make our impact to the world as small as possible is the way to go! And certainly think about what the impact is of our action. Let nature be our guide, partner to establish things. Let us try to give new life to “garbage” and make new things from already existing things. The society wants us to believe that a good economy and thus a lot of selling will bring us prosperity but if you think about it : If we all spend less money on useless things, we have to produce less so basically we all have to work less. That means more time for the important things in life like family, good food, enjoyment and it doesn’t have to cost so much.
