A beautiful positively life inspiring day to you.

I am in search of paid work

(maybe, work exchange if it meets my needs and wants..........   not volunteering!!!)
and NOT in the u.s.

I am open to where this new home, kindred community, life is,
A bit about who I am,
which is a college of an intro letter for work, and other posts I have previously made,
mixed with specifics for this post.

I am moving to live and to create a kindred community of close, trusted beautiful friends,
to celebrate life, and creating the life I am clear Ineed and want tobe living for myself.

I am interested in befriending kindred spirits
and enjoying sharing what we are passionate about within our lives.

I am always curious to learn more about what inspires people within their life,
as well as their dreams and aspirations.

I am interested in possibly working together with you,
as well also creating incredible friendships!

I am diversified within my skills, expertise and experience,
which are all integrated to create a very successful business
and extremely happy, peaceful and satisfied customers.

I am happy to send you my CV which details my life time of experiences, skills, expertise, wisdom and more.
It includes professional and clientels letters of recommendations.
You will enjoy seeing that I will provide you
with the best and most professional and personable of services!

I grew up immersed in Permaculture and Organics.
I have been professionally and personally working with permaculture all of my life!
Growing up, our yard was almost entirely edible and medicinal.

As a few examples of my experiences...
I have designed, implemented and grown small and large scale organic gardens,
created food forests of sub/tropicals and other global selection of ethnobotanicals
in my nursery was over 6000 edibles, medicinals and a few utilitarian plants too.
Ive grown all the plants myself within my own organic world plant nursery.
I sold some of the excess plants and produce on line and in living person.

I have also designed and integrated 180 acres of medicinal herb gardens
into a pre-existing 380 acre farm, was one of my paid projects for others.

Ive taught others how to wild forage,
the identification of plants, preparations and uses
Creating from wild crafted and domestically grown herbs
saulves, tintures, etc.
This included how to properly harvest, store and prepare
for marketing to retail and whole sale businesses.

As well as, creating my own lotions, salves, tinctures for myself
and for sale, when I was managing the retail medicinal herbal department.

I have assisted in creating a series of Earth bag dome construction homes.
Previously and afterwards, assisting with straw bail, rammed earth
and bamboo constructions.

I have owned and operated my own successful Natural Health business
for over 30 years, and have been working internationally,
both as a solo therapist,
and at other times, managing employees.

I have worked as well in collaboration with other health professional
and within others businesses, some of which I have managed.

My focus is as a massage therapist,
which I offer 12 different approaches,
as a medicinal herbalist (and ethnobotanist)
as a hypnotherapist (NLP),
and as a counselor(Gestalt, Cocounseling and other approaches).

I also teach and give workshops in multi approaches to meditation,
chi gong, massage therapy, medicinal herbalism, ecstatic dance,
personal boundaries,self discovery through self expression
and other therapeutic approaches to healing and living life.

I started meditation and yoga when I was 8.
I added Tai Chi and Chi Gong at age 15.

My web site is..

Which integrates some of what I offer as a natural health professional,
as well as, aspects as a wilderness skills instructor and guide,
None of my work with permaculture is listed here.

I have worked in a retreat and wilderness / scientic studies centre
in South America.
where I taught permaculture,
as well as..
managing the gardens, nursery, greenhouses and food forest.

I was the manager of the project.

I was also responsible for being the receptionist-scheduling
and welcoming guests from all around the world,
preparing and coordinating accommodations.
I was also a nature guide and skills instructor,
indigenous living skills (survival skills to some),
rock climbing, camping, hiking, cycling, wild crafting, navigation,
shelter building, felting, plant id-prep n uses, mountaineering-in the past, etc
providing various therapies,
assisting with house keeping, maintenance,
supervising the volunteers and directing their activities,
and as a vegan chef
and more at a wilderness retreat centre in the wilderness.

Additionally, I have co-owned and operated
a successful Wilderness Skills and Guiding company,
along with my long time friend, Ryan Heasely.

Ryan is extremely happy to speak with you,
as excellent professional references for me.
He is also, a Naturopath.

I have been a wilderness skills instructor and guide professionally
for over 20 years in Canada, Ecuador, Peru, Australia, Thailand n in the u.s.,
besides an extensive history of personal wilderness experiences around the globe.

I have professionally taught and guided people in
indigenous living skills (survival skills to some),
rock climbing, camping, hiking, cycling, wild crafting, navigation,
shelter building, felting, plant id-prep n uses, mountaineering-in the past,
re/learning the silent and sounded languages of nature
and much much more.

More recently, I worked independently teaching
and guiding people in the wilderness of Thailand,
and continuing my natural health practice.

My first language is English
with my second being, Spanish.

I am naturally confident and comfortable with myself.

All of my life I have been immersed in learning the important life arts and skills,
be it, what I have listed above or in addition below...

I am long time social/political activist for animals and nature,
indigenous peole still keeping to their traditional manners of living in respect with nature, etc.

I love animals and have had many close friendships with all kinds of animals
A vegan for 30+ years and support animal and nature liberation through direct action,
for even longer!

I enjoy doing performence and other kinds of arts
especially my experimental music, theatre, movement,
storytelling and more,
though it is not a major focus of my life for sometime now.
In the past, I managed an outdoor pursuits back packers.
I have experience professionally teaching English, also.

I am looking for work, where ever I settle into.
Any help appreciated greatly!
