The Tipi is a developing Retreat and Education Center for Mindfulness, Movement, Fitness.
We have been in development since mid 2018, and scheduled to open perhaps around May 1 (pandemic clearance pending).
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.
At present, (April 1, 2020) we are putting the finishing touches on version one of our big training hall (128 sq meters).
With corona virus, our opening is delayed, and we are using this time to finish preparing, as well as collect videos and images for the website. In parallel, we are shifting some energy towards our online videos and workshops. This was in the works for a while, but is very well suited for this time.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR
* a VIDEO editor /film maker preferably traveling with decent video (/audio?) equipment. Also some photos and videos of the spaces would be very valuable
We have an area setup for recording, with a few lights, etc. but Skye is a one-man team on this right now, and could use another person on the job with him!
* folks with building, and CARPENTER skills - we have many small builds to make here from furniture, to new gym equipment, etc.
* someone who will make the spaces and land beautiful, cleaning and organizing, maybe doing permaculture /food garden setups
* knowledgable electrical engineers. We are making some things with arduinos & smart home technologies, as well as doing things like generating energy, or gases for cooking/energy, etc. We would love some expert help.
We will be installing a kind of "playground for adults" on the property in the upcoming few months.
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:
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
We also have a one-of-a-kind on-campus gym, and love to train and practice :)

You are contributing to a very meaningful retreat center that's bringing people into their bodies, and teaching them how to hold their own practice of movement, fitness, yoga and meditation. We are also giving people and experience of what its like to live in simplistic, healthy spaces, aligned to nature and green-building.
You'll get to experience beautiful island with a very informed and connected host. You have an opportunity to learn anything we know, as Skye is always willing to share his knowledge, experience in skills in the work we've done in this project, as well as in the field of martial arts, yoga, and fitness.

We have a huge common gym area, and a well-outfitted workshop to create just about anything.
About Skye: Skye started martial arts at 5 years old (3rd degree blackbelt), and fitness and meditation ever since the prodigal year of 12 years old. He was a personal trainer since 17 years old, opened studios and martial arts schools, and was also a web developer for many years. Skye started yoga at 16, and got certified to teach much later at 29 years old. Skye has lived in Thailand for 5 years, and is very happy playing with life, people, his body, dogs, and nature. Skye finds his flow best in creative production.
Despite his serious effort, focus, and discipline around creating and producing, Skye is COMPLETELY chill, relaxed, informal, fun, playful, and friendly.
Skye is a strong force behind the project, and is often out moving, working, sweating, and creating. S
Occasionally we are able to pick guests up at the pier, otherwise, it should be about 150 baht ($5) from the pier to our project (about 15 minutes drive).
