  • Description


    We are looking for help to help with construction and general landscape and maintenance help along the way.

    We are expanding and building a unique life skills Centre on (on the property where we live) to grow and develop into offering in house groups, camps, retreats, and workshops.
    The main activities we offer are Private and group Canoe lessons, energy teachings and quantum touch, team building activities, integrative counselling, self development Workshops, and Yoga Sessions.

    My partner, Troy is not what I would call but we are together for a reason and teach each other a ton....So it is what it is I suppose....I have always just followed my intuition and it has never steered me as much as people may think I'm "far out there" for my views...I see it as daring to go there!

    Anyway....we are working alot on the property...renos and gardening are ongoing...and overall preparation. we enjoy our yard (fire pit,) boating, canoeing, fishing, sledding, biking, hiking, and quadding....and more...all within a few minutes from our house....WE are not slave drivers all the time :) Troy likes his beer...I sincerely dislike the length of time a hangover I don't drink so much anymore...but we like to have fun and do stuff! I"m teaching and doing alot of hot yoga these days and trying to clean live from our garden and non GMO's as much as we possibly can! So the weather is fabulous here typically year round...but the area does slow down the end of October...we are just down the road from the World Famous Sockeye Salmon run on the Adams River that occurs during the month of October.

    If you are interested in checking out the Shuswap and helping me make my dreams for a Healing Centre come true...E-mail me! Until then, happy travels and thanks for reading.

    If you can check out and read more about Life Force and me on my web site...

    Our Healing Centre project will be ongoing for a period..beginning the fall of 2015. We are seeking trustworthy driven individuals that can assist in the build. We are prepared to accommodate two individuals who have skills that would add value to our project in various areas. Those with carpentry knowledge and experience would be given preference. We also require the establishment of our community garden, and overall gardening and maintenance of the property.

  • Accommodation


    The property is across the road from the Shuswap Lake in the North Shuswap, in British Columbia where there is lake access within a 5 minute walk. We have a beautiful lake view on approx. one acre of treed and landscaped (ongoing project though) property. The type of accommodation we can offer right now is a 17 Foot travel trailer on the property which is a bit older but I bought it for myself a few years ago and love it. It has super huge windows, a large fridge that works, great working furnace, and we put in a really comfortable memory foam mattress for the bed, a table area that could be set up for a second sleeping area, tons of cupboard space (which has everything you need) propane stove and oven, full bathroom with toilet, and separate stand up shower. We would provide electricity, water, and propane to the trailer but we would also provide meals up at the main house where we live. (My husband and I). We are looking to create a supportive friendship type of atmosphere....I work right now out of house seeing clients offering Quantum Touch (energy healing), card readings, and trans-personal counselling and my husband is a carpenter. Once we complete the healing centre, this will allow for additional upgraded accommodation in the centre...but we need to build it first! We are pretty easy going liberal people, and 100 percent believe respect is earned. The type of worker / traveler who would be invited to stay for as long as they wish here, would be an honest, caring, trustworthy, respectful, hard worker, as that's the type of people we are.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in what is called the Sunny North Shuswap Lake. It is a tourist destination hot spot in the summer (May-Sept)....and ski-dooing (tons of places minutes away from us), skiing, (Sun peaks Ski Resort) and hiking in the winter. If you are into the outdoors, this is the spot. We live close to so many hiking spots, two provincial Parks, and October sees one of the hugest spawning salmon runs (sockeye salmon) in North America right down the road from our property on the Adams River. There is white water rafting, tons of markets, music festivals, and any water sport within 10 minutes of our property during the summer months. We could provide transportation, but depending on our own schedules and availability of the vehicles...but a bike could be another option..we would have to discuss on a need basis but nothing is out of the question. We are 40 min from Salmon Arm, British Columbia, and Kamloops, British Columbia, and we are approx. 5 hours from Vancouver, British Columbia.
