LABORATORY OF MIND AND IMAGINATION
Sela is an old farmhouse with adjoining stables and barn. In the house are 3 rooms on the ground floor. Two double and one single with a bathroom and a washing machine. In the stables are 6 double rooms with two shared kitchens and two bathrooms and a washing machine. The kitchens are fully equipped. We can thus house 9 to 17 people. In the barn is a large social area with loft and workshop for artists. From 2013 it has been restored by Peter and Swany. Their dream is to make Sela a residence for creative compassionate people who stay for one month or longer. In their minds creative compassionate people are all those who create from their imagination. Therefore they call their operation The Laboratory of Mind and Imagination.
