  • Description


    I am an Older, Kind, and Cool Gentle Man with a great sense of humour!
    My name is Richard, and I live in a beautiful location in rural Manitoba between Brandon [1.5 hours] and Winnipeg [1.75 hours].
    I am a holistic health practioner with over 45 years experience who has taught many different techniques, modalities and teachings throughout my adventurous life journney. I am looking for a couple [maybe 2] and/or a strong helper who have carpentry/handyperson/gardening and organizarional skills to help get my place in tip top condition for a future Healing Lodge [my dearly departed wife and I came to this spot to actualize our dream project]. Mechanical knowledge is an EXTRA BONUS!
    I am a fun, easy going, older Dude who is non judgemental, open minded, accepting, and wise who is keen to meet interesting, hard working, ethical and mindful individuals who are willing to help with drywall, organizing antigues and books [possibly create a library], fix whatever needs to be fixed and organize what ever needs to be organized. I have a beautiful massive property that needs to be loved back to life. There is a Chartres Labynth that needs attention. As an Elder widower I am in need of your groovy assistance to "Get Er Done!" and have some fun doing it. There are 3 bedrooms to be set up as you like, come hither and lets do what needs to be done.

    Ideally we are looking for a couple or two! Due to the circumstances of the dynamics here; this seems to be the best to create the outcome we are moving towards.

    Thank you regardless, most sincerely - it is not personal! :)

    All smoking is done outside.

    You will have your own private bedroom and a shared bathroom. My place and myself are safe, respectful, warm and welcoming. You will be requested to work Mon to Fri 4 to 6 hours a day. [I am a cool old Dude and I NEVER ask anyone to do anything unreasonable, dangerous or inappropriate,] As an Elder widower, I simply can not do what I used to and my place needs your young energy, skills and talents to bring all of its' possibilities and opportunities back to life. There is all sorts of projects to be done so please get in touch and we will make a Plan with a capital "P"!
    The Manitoba sky is like a beautiful ocean above that gives one a sense of freedom and awe. Come for a week or a month or two. Whatever suits. I lookforward to hearing from you.
