    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have a good knowledge of herbs and Chinese medicine. I know a lot about the local plants. I have traveled and am educated. I live near The Temple of the Universe, home of spiritual teacher Michael Singer author of "Untethered Soul". He was featured on the Oprah show and his book was discussed on the View. The Temple offers free yoga, chanting and satsang (spiritual talks). There is also a Hare Krishna Temple near by. There is also Ayurvedic Center near by.

    There is a lot of mowing with my riding lawn mower and other yard work. There is pruning, weeding, sometimes transplanting or helping me with something heavy. I also need handy man work in the house. Tiling experience would be a plus but not necessary.
