We are Paul and Aria, and wel run a Holistic Wellness Center for many different types of health challenges, but in particular, we are focused on helping people reverse their cancer. We have a 30-day Overcome Cancer Residency for people that want to learn and live the principles of self-healing and the reversal of cancer, which I write about in my book (I don't think I can mention my book here because it's against workaway policies).
We are on the edge of a small town, secluded among roughly 60 acres of forest. The wellness center is also a hobby farm with handfuls of chickens, geese, goats and sheep. I have an amazing dog who is super friendly who looks after the animals.
We need help with:
1. upkeep with a clean environment (sweeping, washing floors, keeping bathrooms clean, etc)
2. small chores such as gathering eggs, feeding and watering the animals, and help with firewood (the house is heated by a woodstove).
3. In the spring, summer and fall, we need help with the enormous vegetable garden, to provide as much food as possible for the program cultivated from loving hands, and healthy soil, without the use of any pesticides.
I have had 3 cancer clients here at once before, other times just one, and sometimes none (which is needed for break). We take about 5 months off each year to make sure we have our own freedom. If you were to join us for a while, there could be a client here, maybe not. I have also had up to 2 workaway helpers at once. We have 3 rooms for accomodations.
When a client is here you may be asked to contribute in some way - thus if you have any particular skills (although you need not have them) such as massage, reiki, art therapy, guided meditation, yoga, or anything you'd like to contribute, or are just a very safe, loving person to be around, this would be very beneficial :)
From December to April 1st we are covered in snow, and temperatures range between -15 to +5.
During spring, summer and fall, we have a large vegetable/fruit garden.
If you have skill in any of the following, it be a great help as well:
someone that wants to help with marketing & advertising, improving website design, social media,etc.
Someone that could work on translating Paul's book.
We love sharing our space with travellers - it keeps life expanding, and the help is always a great bonus.

You will learn valuable aspects of healing and health by living in this environment. You can learn more if you like, such as meditation and other factors of healing. You will learn about cancer from not only a holistic perspective but from Paul's unique teachings which are explained in his first book, and then in books 2 and 3 which will be coming out when editing is finalized (taking a long time!)
Cleaning, farm chores (gathering eggs, feeding animals), vegetable gardening, flower gardening (april to October).
You will have a room for yourself. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Food will be provided. No cost to stay. You will be on call for any kind of help. No routine is followed other than a list of things that need to be kept up, and thus a few hours each day working on those things is requested.
Time off - you can travel 10 minutes to yoga classes, small coffee shops.
3 minutes into town to shop for groceries, and other stores. Not near a large city - closest large cities are 1.5 hours away (Toronto, Waterloo, Hamilton, London)
I travel to Toronto about once per week, and thus would be happy to drop anyone off in Toronto to explore.
