I am a herbalist naturopath, a therapist in holistic, energetic & chamanic hypnosis, quantum communication worker & a tribal belly dance ( some shows during summer). I am a moon dancer & life has a lot of sacred moments. My boyfriend is a college teacher, together we have 7 kids from 10 to 24 years old. We now live with 2 kids, sometimes all of them are here at the same time but this is getting more rare now, the older ones have there own places.
We are very connected with nature, conscious. the house is very trippy, and the land is calm, I've been here for 22 years, we actually live in a magic valley...We have different types of gardens, some are permacultural, others are autofertile. We really love life & think that everything has fabulous connections.
We are very easy going & life is kind of fun here!
I own a herbal shop since 2014.

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 et state of mind. The kids are fun to be with, we have a nice, big family, one cat called Robin & a beautiful dog called Ganeshani. Everyone enjoy each other. Music, dance, creations are part of our daily life. Herbalism is a total way of living. Ones will experience different medecines that we carry, opening maybe to some unknown parts of self.
We have 10 beehouses on the land & participate at a community project, 10 beehouses for 10 different families, this project ( J'adopte une ruche) will be very interesting for you to experience.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
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.
