    ------

    A developing Retreat and Education Center for Mindfulness, Movement, Fitness.

    We have been in development since mid 2018, and scheduled to open perhaps around May 1 (pandemic clearance pending).

    To create something truly unique, we had to master a very particular set of skills. Having started from a vision of sustainability, we learned all the skills of the conventional and traditional building trade, and outfitted with tools and a workshop. On-site we are equipped for, and capable of diy cobb, bamboo, steel work, wood work, plumbing, electrical, etc.

    We have built nature huts, earth ovens, and gorgeous, unique geodesic domes with our own hands.

    We will be installing a kind of "playground for adults" on the property in the upcoming few months.

    We have been on workaway since about August 2018 and have already done some really nice foundation building, experimented a lot, invented a lot, and developed or skills. In addition to the more traditional building, we first started with practicing and learning a lot of “primitive technology” from our ancestors to build our own equipment and shelter, and a million other very cool things like:

    Smart Home Technologies
    Geodesic Dome building
    Natural Hut Building
    Palm-leaf work for roofs, paneling, etc.
    100% Natural Dream-catchers, Natural Cordage & Rope-making
    Bamboo Building - Houses, Huts, Furniture, and More
    Sweat-lodge and natural sauna process
    Cobb Oven building
    Adobe Earth Brick and Cobb work
    Fire-making, starting a fire without a lighter, material use, etc.
    Wood Burning
    Using recycled tires for building & instrument-making
    Log benches and Furnitures
    Fire-Show and “nunchuck” blacklight show
    Lashing Natural Portable Bamboo Tripod and Making Exercise Equipment
    Bamboo art-making (wood bending, shaping, etc.)
    Sewing and Tipi-making
    Harvesting opening, processing, cooking, and preparing COCONUTS
    Charcoal Making with Clay Charcoal Machine
    Primitive Pottery Making
    Weaving (Baskets, Mats, Filers, Etc)
    Big Basket-making with Rattan
    Making of Kombucha, Home-made coconut yogurt, fermented foods, pizza from scratch
    Natural, cruelty-free “leather” from growable SCOBY mushrooms
    Natural Hot-Stone massage & treatment process

    About Skye: Skye started martial arts at 5 years old (3rd degree blackbelt), and fitness and meditation ever since the prodigal year of 12 years old. He was a personal trainer since 17 years old, opened studios and martial arts schools, and was also a web developer for many years. Skye started yoga at 16, and got certified to teach much later at 29 years old. Skye has lived in Thailand for 5 years, and is very happy playing with life, people, his body, dogs, and nature. Skye finds his flow best in creative production.

    Despite his serious effort, focus, and discipline around creating and producing, Skye is chill, and friendly.

    Taxis from the pier are about 150 baht ($5) to our project (about 15 minutes drive).
