  • Description

    Description

    I am a herbalist naturopath, a therapist in holistic, energetic & chamanic hypnosis & a tribal belly dance ( lots of shows during summer). I am a moon dancer & life has a lot of sacred moments. My boyfriend is a teacher, together we have 7 kids from 9 to 23 years old. Some live here in part time ( 4 of them) , sometimes all of them are here at the same time but this is getting more rare now, the older ones have there own place.

    We are very connected with nature, vegetarian, conscious. the house is very trippy, I've been here for 20 years now, we actually live in a magic valley...We have different type of gardens, some are permacultural, others are autofertile. I have a herbal shop, products for body, soul & spirit. We really love life & think that everything has fabulous connections.
    We are very easy going & we like to having fun once in a while ;)

    Help

    Gardening is mostly everyday chore... Taking care of the gardens, watering, cleaning. Some plants transformations & products that you can learn to do here with healing herbs.
    Beside the gardens, help in the house can be ask too ( cooking & other). Taking care of the hens when we are away.
    Look out & help at the boutique when needed can be ask often too. I have some workshop & private sessions with clients so I will need occasionally replacement at the boutique.
    We need to landscape our "summer cuisine" beside the river & & differents landscape on the land.
    An extension of the garden, layout & workshop are also on the program

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We speak french, english, partly spanish & some abenaki, we live by voluntary simplicity & believe that we can work thing out to be more sufficient. Chamanism is part of my daily life, living here for a moment can open up to this kind of living. The kids are fun to be with, we have a nice, big family. Everyone enjoy each other. Music, dance, creations are part of our daily life. Herbalism is a way of living. Ones will experience different medecines that we carry here.
    We will keep 11 beehousea on the land this summer for 10 different families, this project ( J'adopte une ruche) will be very interesting.
