I am currently
Hello, I am a woman, mother, who has been involved for almost 30 years in the natural birth movement in Québec, being part of creating one of the first free-birthing home with midwives and coordinating its services since 1994. I also am a writer, editor and biographer. I am drawn to the human experience, trhough spiritual and creative work. I am there for people who are going through rites of passages, from birth to death and everything in between. I have this year decided to finish my work with the midwives, in order to continue writing my next book and being more available for rites of passages. I am currently involved with LES ENFANTS GIOIA, a wonderful community of doctors and families and creative people who offer a time of joy and creativity and care for children with rare and incurable diseases. I want to spend the next few months by myself, in Italy, as a workaway volonteer, to have space for writing. I love to walk, bike, dance, be in nature and all that is creative in life. Thank you for reading!!!

More details about your skills
In 2004, I have built with my husband, our 2nd home, on a beautiful and very magical land. I have learned a lot and it has been a very intense and rewarding experience. I am very creative, can do a lot of creative work (ceramic, fabric, paint, etc...). I am a very good seamstress, I recycle and make all my clothes.
I also have a good size garden (flowers and vegetables), I love working outside and I am pretty strong and not afraid of working hard.
I have also worked a lot in public, so I am very at ease with social environnments (hotel word, B&B, etc...).
I speak english and french and a bit of italian and laotian.
I am a calm, happy, zen person!
What else ...
I love music, reading.
I am very autonomous, like to be alone to recharge my batteries so I don't need to be entertained!
