Spirebo? Briefly explained!
SPIREBO stands for spiritual rainbow (on german: Regenbogen) community.
The video is available with english subtitles.
We call ourselves spiritual because we associate this term with respect and mindfulness in dealing with everything that creation has brought forth. Thereby we try to pay more attention to the forgotten spiritual behind all matter.
The rainbow symbolizes for us with its different colors the working together of different basic spiritual natures.
This is the most natural way of life for us. We are a patchwork family that sticks together when it counts, even if we don’t always agree. Currently we are 22 adults and 6 children, aged from 1 to 64 years.
Short facts in numbers
In 2006 we came together as a community around Jürgen as our shamanic consultant and his wife Gabi.
In 2007 we emigrated to Togo, West Africa.
In 2015 we moved from Togo to Odrintsi in Bulgaria.
Since June 2021 we are on the Atlantic Ocean with the Steel Rat, a sailing ship that was built in 1903, to implement the Meridian Expedition.
Since March 2022, a part of our community has solid ground under its feet again, and we are in the process of creating a place on the Canary Island of La Gomera, which should help people to perceive their 7 senses again.

Within a few weeks we renovated an old youth hostel and opened the HEIDEHAUS in the southern Black Forest, a shamanic meditation and relaxation home.
Many began to perceive energies within themselves and outside.
There were guided meditations, meditation walks and energy work.
First attempts in the small garden with permaculture
We used the year in the Heidehaus to grow together as a community 🙂

In May 2021 we gave up our successful self-sustaining life in Odrintsi to answer the call of a new task: The Meridian Expedition. To realize this task we needed our STAHLRATTE, a staysail schooner built in Rotterdam in 1903.
We are extremely grateful to our old lady that with her help we were able to realize the Meridian Expedition at all! And that she brought us to the place of our new task: The island of La Gomera.

A review of our last years is also available as a video and a photo collage:

The rainbow has many colors, here we introduce ourselves
“We all have something in common: Everyone is different!
This can lead to the biggest quarrel – or let us achieve any goal. When our differences flow together, the result is a know how and a potential that can handle any task 🙂
The essential that makes everything possible: TRUST!
Wolfgang, well under 60 🙂
