  • Beschreibung


    Our family lives in State College. I teach at Penn State University and have my own business: Yo-Eco Retreats--Yoga, Nature, Arts Retreats. My husband Terry is a landscaper and our adult children, Sean, Aimee, and Adde have many interesting pursuits. I am currently working with my son to host a retreat in Brazil in March, 2020.

    We are looking for support for an active Air BnB for international students and faculty, also maintaining a campsite 45 min away. Special Project--developing a destination retreat offering in Brazil by doing research.

    We make our house into a welcoming place for visitors. We currently host many folks from around the world. I would like to develop our outdoor space --create gardens, lighting, a hot tub, outdoor fire pit--in order to entice people to gather, socialize and also do programming in personal development. I invite collaborators.

    Another project is s a bootcamp for women with even an inkling of running for public office. Again, in a retreat setting.
    I also am marketing a book and a subscription service--The Elements of New Life Scripts--a retreat guidebook and its companion, Retreat in a box. So yes! It's about retreats--at my home, and exotic destinations!

    State College is several hours from some great places: Pittsburgh, Washington DC, and just 5 hrs by bus to NYC. Also, the NY wine country is within a day's drive and Toronto is just 6 hrs.

    We are looking for support for our "retreats" which could be developed at our home and in nearby venues. The volunteer would support those efforts by using their particular strengths --and also by providing help for rennovation projects, maintenance projects; gardening projects; programming; marketing; computer and social media.
