  • Description

    Hi! My name is Lavender, I use all pronouns and am 20 years old. I am from the United States and am looking to learn, grow, and contribute positively to the world.

    I am currently working in a lodge in New Hampshire to save/explore, and plan to continue to travel this winter. I have been traveling alone since I turned 18, living/working in different resorts, farms and communities. Some of my experience includes:
    - Leading guest activities (dodgeball, group hikes, snow tubing, etc)
    - Teaching climbing and archery
    - Running ATV tours and dogsled rides
    - Gardening
    - Building
    - Working in a hostel
    - Food & drink prep and serving
    - Teaching gymnastics and simple yoga classes for kids
    - Childcare, camp counseling
    - Volunteering at food drives, animal shelters, and nursing homes

    My ideal work setting is teamwork-driven, positive, creative, and energetic. I prefer to stay in locations for at least a month (but ideally a few) to get to know the people and land.

    I feel incredibly lucky to be here and want to explore Earth and learn how to fully treat her with care and respect. I love to explore new ideas, music, rituals, and art forms. Some things I am looking to learn more about are reiki, herbalism, aerial dance, massage, Qi Gong, and yoga. And most importantly, I want to connect with people and form meaningful relationships, and to deepen my connection with the Earth.

    Some of my dreams and goals:
    - Studying yoga, breathwork, and other healing practices in India
    - Adopting a cat, dog, or bunny
    - Backpacking a long trail like John Muir or Hayduke
    - Offering reiki, massage, sound therapy in a community

    I love music and concerts, animals, hiking/exploring, swimming and spending time with friends and family. I do yoga, meditate and try to maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet. I enjoy reading and watching movies and plays as well. I am open to going anywhere and doing all types of work I am capable of.
