This is a playful retreat center for Fitness, Movement, and Mindfulness. We have 5 houses on site, some with multiple rooms/units (4 units for tenants, one unit for workaway, and a small storage house), 2 geodesic domes homes, 3 outdoor bathrooms and showers, and a 128 square meter fitness and yoga hall.
We have many visions for the future, but are running pretty low-key during corona.
We are currently only open for residents, and have closed or suspended the opening of our: retreats, classes, and open gym.
At the moment, we need help to keep the place nice and clean, taking care of tenants, and incoming tenants, and minding daily upkeep.
Your list of ongoing tasks are pretty clear, and you'll usually have a few other creative projects per week.
As long as the work is getting done beautifully, and everybody is happy, you make your own hours.
You have a nice little bottom-floor unit, and a motorbike for use.
You have full access to use the gym and yoga hall for your personal practice and play. (Our gym is private for residents only, during covid closings.)
There will always be something different or fun to do each week. This week for example, someone would take apart the remains of a geodesic bamboo dome, clean the fire pile, and light a fire :).
Other weeks you may get into small or bigger projects. At the moment, we are not at an intensive building period. Other times, there is a big group effort and we'll work on projects together - but now with covid its generally low-key.
There are other tasks at the tipi but where we are right now in this covid stage, these are the most active roles.
Other fun skills we can put into good use:
* website, graphics, seo, etc.
* building experience (steel, wood, bamboo, natural, etc.)
* professional marketing experience
* arduino/raspberry pi programming
A developing Retreat and Education Center for Mindfulness, Movement, Fitness.
We have been in development since mid 2018.
To create something truly unique, we had to master a very particular set of skills. Having started from a vision of sustainability, we learned all the skills of the conventional and traditional building trade, and outfitted with tools and a workshop. On-site we are equipped for, and capable of diy cobb, bamboo, steel work, wood work, plumbing, electrical, etc.
We have built nature huts, earth ovens, and gorgeous, unique geodesic domes with our own hands.
We have been on workaway since about August 2018 and have already done some really nice foundation building, experimented a lot, invented a lot, and developed or skills. In addition to the more traditional building, we first started with practicing and learning a lot of “primitive technology” from our ancestors to build our own equipment and shelter, and a million other very cool things like:
Smart Home Technologies
Geodesic Dome building
Natural Hut Building
Palm-leaf work for roofs, paneling, etc.
100% Natural Dream-catchers, Natural Cordage & Rope-making
Bamboo Building - Houses, Huts, Furniture, and More
Sweat-lodge and natural sauna process
Cobb Oven building
Adobe Earth Brick and Cobb work
Fire-making, starting a fire without a lighter, material use, etc.
Using recycled tires for building & instrument-making
Log benches and Furnitures
Fire-Show and “nunchuck” blacklight show
Lashing Natural Portable Bamboo Tripod and Making Exercise Equipment
Bamboo art-making (wood bending, shaping, etc.)
Sewing and Tipi-making
Harvesting opening, processing, cooking, and preparing COCONUTS
Charcoal Making with Clay Charcoal Machine
Primitive Pottery Making
Weaving (Baskets, Mats, Filers, Etc)
Big Basket-making with Rattan
Making of Kombucha, Home-made coconut yogurt, fermented foods, pizza from scratch
Natural, cruelty-free “leather” from growable SCOBY mushrooms
Natural Hot-Stone massage & treatment process
