Smena Station
Peer-led community of like-minded professionals and a network of hubs where we live, work and develop.
Rigorous interview process allows us to blend successful people from around the globe creating life-long professional and personal connections.
Smena's daily routine is a balance between work and leisure. We are constantly sharing and improving the tools that help us be more productive and achieve our goals.
Everyone pays a fair share to make the project happen and the cost of participation is so low because we're not a business - we're a community.

Smena's Instruments
Members share their feelings and emotions to stay on the same page. This is a useful habit for personal growth and mindfulness.
Life/Work Balance
We follow the 80/20 Pareto principle and have a tradition of closing our laptops on Friday evening to spend time not being guilty for not working.
The power of collective intellect allows members to solve problems and obtain  new perspectives on each others' projects.
Co-living and dinners
Allow members to share their values, make lifetime friends and build teams right on the spot.
Sharing knowledge within the community is a cornerstone of our philosophy. The best things in the world are not sold but gifted from one to another.
3 minutes for elevator pitch and 2 minutes for questions for each member during an open event every two weeks.
Dragon Dreaming
We dream of what needs to happen at each shift so that in the end all would say - it was incredible.
Goal setting
We use an array of tools to help each member achieve better result in work and personal life.
There are no strangers, only friends that I haven't met yet.
Happiness is only
real when shared
Each and every Station is unique but all are united by one framework and 10 Principles of Burning Man.

Where is it all coming from?
We have spent the last 8 years traveling. Our trips averaged from one to six months in each country, exploring its traditions, residents and nature. Modern tourism has become a fast food that reflects trends in society: a couple days of low quality and artificial experiences and cheap souvenirs destroying the culture and environment of the region.

We chose to make our trips longer that required a complete revision of our routine. We base our income on seasonal business and remote work. This has released us from a pointless commute each morning and unreasonably expensive rent. We added volunteering and work exchange to the creation of a system where 90% of the time we don't spend any money for staying in the country. Moreover, everything that we earn we invest in development of new projects and ideas.

Volunteering allows us to see travel from a new perspective. Each day consists of interaction with new cultures, development and learning. We believe that because we are paying forward without expecting anything in return, we get a lot — the moment we send a signal to the Universe, it hears us.

In order to enrich our travels, we made a conscious decision to avoid tourist traps. We understood that travel shouldn't destroy the balance of nature and shouldn't intrude into the life of locals. So we strive to become locals ourselves. The question "where" slowly evolved into "with whom" and "why".

Developing technology provides people with the freedom to work remotely. Being chained to an office is no longer a necessity for success. The addition of like minded co-thinkers will facilitate the achievement of your goals. We created a co-living and co-working environment bringing together interesting and purposeful people who are ready to give without expecting anything in return. Burning Man taught us that a society based on the laws of kindness and beauty is not only real, but attainable. We invested our own money to create the first Smena in Sri Lanka — and we're proud to say that the project still thrives to this day.
Our mission
We are offering a new format of life and productivity not only for people working remotely, but also for those who ever desired to shape their own way of living. A chain of hubs around the world (Sri Lanka, Malta, Thailand, Montenegro, Russia, USA, Portugal) supporting our core values: joint creativity, authentic experiences, location-independent productivity and an array of views and directions. For Smena, life experience outweighs monetary possession.
A skill of choosing one's community is a skill of someone who is ready to take responsibility for the state of his soul. © Julianna Wilson
