A Bohemian adventure on the Hungarian Puszta

Jay & Annemieke ... Chy-Kara Crew

Years ago we followed our hearts and found our way to Hungary.

The combination of different dimensions from rural simplicity, to the historical depth and the cultural heritage of ancient Hungarian traditions with Celtic traditions inspires us and makes us feel at home.


The characteristics that unite us is a deep sense of freedom in our hearts. Our minds rebel against too many bureaucratic obstacles. We feel infinite love for nature and animals in our souls.

With our project Chy-Kara, we want to share the pleasant perspectives of a way of Self-sufficient Living away from the consumption society.

We offer the Luxury of Simplicity ... a Bohemian Lifestyle

We welcome you warmly at Chy-Kara !


Chy-Kara, pronounced as ’Chai-Kara’, is a Cornish-Celtic way to express ’house of love, care’.

Chy stands for: The house, our existence, our body the house of our Soul

Kara stands for: The beginning, the infinite space, the source, all the result by love and care.


It is said that the Heart-Chakra of Mother Earth is located in Hungary. We experience that people and nature in this environment send out so much loveliness and warm heartedness.

Spiritual Retreats & events with Spirit

Chy-Kara offers an idyllic location for inspiration, reflection and creative retreat


Chy-Kara has become a place which our guests admire for the special, mystical atmosphere that prevails here. It has happened many times that travellers said that the calm, peaceful Zen-like Spirit of this place and the healing, inspiring energy reminded them of sacred places in India and Tibet.

Chy-Kara offers a unique place for workshops. It has the capacity for small groups to ensure a high degree of intimacy and personal approach. If it comes to the organizational side it maintains a low threshold and easy-going, encouraging agreements.


If you are searching for a fascinating environment for a retreat with your group in combination with a workshop with topics like yoga, zen, singing, esotericism, tarot reading/rune telling/astrology, herbal healing, philosophy, djembe, acro-yoga, shamanic healing circles, ascension processes, etc. etc., we hope that we have raised your interest and your curiosity :-)

Hands for Avalon ... Creation of a New Realm

In the summer of 2021 Jay & I started the building of a New Realm. Fitting in the scene of Chy-Kara a round building with a reciprocal roof was rising before my third eye ....
A place to be built with straw-bales and clay ... Surrounded with mystical vibes where fairies would love to reside....

It would become a guest-house. ... and maybe a place to gather for small groups ...
In my vision it is already there ...

We started full enthousiasm .... but we got cought up by some adverse events. 

We are currently looking for some helping hands to help us create this dream place. 


Eco-Dream ..... The Rise of Avalon

So, we started full enthousiasm .... but we got cought up by some adverse events. .... The video shows you the initials of the project .... The Rise of Avalon.

We are currently looking for some helping hands to help us create this dream place. We are thinking of "Hands" as real help preferably of people who have experience with building this type of houses.

But also, support for us and our visions with a donation to PAYPAL.ME is a great help at the moment. 

Please, contact us for more information.

Lots of thanks in advance, Jay & Annemieke, Chy-Kara Crew

New Earth Community

Chy-Kara New Earth Community Hungary
Background & visions

Anastasia Kin's-Domains connected to Chy-Kara

In 2008 my ray clearly showed me the development of a New-Earth community with the new-earth philosophy at its core. I saw (and still see) the possibility for like-minded people to find their own place to live/work in the area of my farm house and to link their New Earth activity to Chy-Kara.


In the surroundings from Chy-Kara on an area of about 1,5 km2 there are approximately 25 abandoned tanya’s (farm houses). Some are in better condition than the other, in some places only the remains of a house are visible.

(I currently made it my task to research the possibility of purchasing such a property to start a New Earth village)


In my vision in this village to create, people would live together, but each family/couple would have its own place with a piece of land to be self-sufficient.

People would be able to use their talents, they would choose a job or project that seamlessly matches their personal and soul motivation. Because this is why we are here on earth. In this village the common building would be the Chy-Kara Tanya, where people meet, where workshops can be given for personal growth as this is of paramount importance for the personal motivation and the choice of work.

Annemieke Friedrichs is my name. Nearly 18 years ago, a strong, swift current led me to Hungary; my adventure started with a dream, a vision. I changed course and said goodbye to my life in the consumer society. I had to break through entrenched social dogmas, jump over shadows of fear, feel the world on my shoulders, and therefore experience that I am ALIVE!


In recent times I have gained more insight into the objectives that I personally have, and those that the company has for the whole. I can give a good example of LIFE in FREEDOM from the HEART, of making choices and decisiveness, I can transfer from experience what it is like to learn to rely on solutions, which always come within your reach in time, … and I can provide insight in energetic layers that play in contact with the environment. For many, this will be a necessary support in this time of ever-increasing vibrations.

I see the move from the Netherlands to my place in Hungary in 2005 as a kind of pioneer’s act of which scope I was not completely aware. At that time I never even heard of the books of Anastasia.

My focus was to prepare a place, to set up a spiritual centre, where people could retreat in Times of the Great Change where they could participate in workshops that could help them to find new perspectives on all holistic aspects of human BEING; the spiritual, mental/intellectual, physical/material, spiritual, social and cultural aspects.


The vision of Hungary became increasingly clearer and the idea was supported by all kinds of 'coincidences'. A financial tax advantage eventually formed the basis for the project

The spiritual - ecological centre Chy-Kara, on the Puszta in the Carpathian Basin of Hungary. A more than 100-year-old farmhouse built of clay, sand, straw and wood on approximately 5000 m2 of private land in the middle of robust nature.


Through the years it became a travellers meeting place where like-minded people stayed for some time to search guidance, healing and inspiration.

Heart and soul behind a plan that originated in 2003

A Vision of a New Earth Community

Times of the Great Change ... 
New Earth is rising

From vision to realization on the way to manifestation

A parked vision

In my case, the actual conversion of a vision into an ongoing initiative is a process in which I experienced a kind of inspiration wave over the years, then enthusiastically started working on it, but then got stuck in practice, too much work on the farm, or just bureaucracy. Asking for help with that somehow didn't occur to me.... still not my best side actually ;-)


However, I realize that in order to really make a New Earth Community work, it takes a plan, collaboration AND MONEY !!

I think that this area on the Southern Planes in Hungary is calling for Free Spirits with a Dream, a wish to live in Freedom, living a life of self-sufficiency, surrounded by like-minded people in a community.


In this video I show you the area of about 1 km2 in the surroundings of Chy-Kara.
I know, the plots are not 1 ha like the discription in the Books ... The free space between the plots is incredible. Some former owners did buy more land connected to the initial spot.


So if you see the possibilities, not the problems ....
And if this speaks to your Heart .... 

Than, I am looking forward to contact, and exchange ideas, co-create ....

“Mitten in der Weite der Puszta ein kleines Refugium welches in mir Erinnerungen an meine Kindheit in Ungarn aufleben liess. Aber zu meiner grossen Überraschung: SIE ist keine Ungarin, aber spricht wie eine und ER ist kein Ungare aber sieht mehr aus wie einer als die meisten Einheimischen :-) Wir erlebten eine äusserst gastfreundschaftliche Aufnahme - tack så mycket / herzlichen Dank! Sehr erholsam und ohne jeglichen Touristenrummel. In der Nähe Ópusztaszer - ein Muss für die Ungaren (Typ Skansen, Frielichtmuseum). War für uns ein "Camper-Abenteur" im Mini-Format.

Allen Individualisten sehr zu empfehlen :-).”
