    Description

    Hi, my name is Paul and I run a Holistic Wellness Center for many different types of health challenges. In particular, I have an Overcome Cancer Program for people that want to learn how, and live, the principles of self-healing, which I write about.

    I am situated on the edge of a small town, secluded among roughly 60 acres of forest. The wellness center is also a hobby farm with handfuls of chickens, geese, goats and sheep. I have 3 amazing dogs that are super friendly who look after the animals.

    I need help with:

    1. upkeep with a clean environment (sweeping, washing floors, keeping bathrooms clean, etc)

    2. small chores such as gathering eggs, feeding and watering the animals, and help with firewood (the house is heating in the winter by a woodstove).

    3. In the spring, summer and fall, I need help with the enormous vegetable garden, to provide as much food as possible for the program cultivated from loving hands, and healthy soil, without the use of any pesticides. Also the more beautiful the place can be, the better of a healing environment in becomes, thus many flowers gardens are being build and expanded each spring and summer, so help with those is appreciated!

    Sometimes I have had 3 cancer clients here at once, other times one, and sometimes none at all (which is needed for break time). I have also had up to 2 workaway helpers at once, sometimes only 1 and sometimes none.

    When a client is here you may be asked to contribute in some way - thus if you have any particular skills (although you need not have them) such as massage, reiki, art therapy, guided meditation, yoga, or anything you'd like to contribute, or are just a very safe, loving person to be around, this would be very beneficial :)

    From December to April 1st we are covered in snow, and temperatures range between -15 to +5.
    During spring, summer and fall, we have a large vegetable/fruit garden.

    If you have skill in any of the following, it be a great help as well:

    someone that wants to help with marketing & advertising, improving website design, social media,etc.

    Someone that could work on translating Paul's book.

    Many people inquire so I would prefer only those who wish to come for 1-2 weeks to inquire. Although I have had helpers come back up to 3 times now, for 2 weeks at a time!

    Much love,

    Paul

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will learn valuable aspects of healing and health by living in this environment. You can learn more if you like, such as meditation and other factors of healing. You will learn about cancer from not only a holistic perspective but from Paul's unique teachings which are explained in his first book, and then in books 2 and 3 which will be coming out when editing is finalized (taking a long time!)

    You will have a room for yourself. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Food will be provided. No cost to stay. You will be on call for any kind of help. No routine is followed other than a list of things that need to be kept up, and thus a few hours each day working on those things is requested.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Time off - you can travel 10 minutes to yoga classes, small coffee shops.
    3 minutes into town to shop for groceries, and other stores. Not near a large city - closest large cities are 1.5 hours away (Toronto, Waterloo, Hamilton, London)

    I travel to Toronto about once per week, and thus would be happy to drop anyone off in Toronto to explore.
