BIG ISLAND OF HAWAI'I.
We are looking for conscious earth stewards (a stable couple) for a beautiful healing sanctuary in Ka'u, Hawai'i, beginning March 1st, 2021 until the end of May, 2021. Longer stay, a definite possibility – if it is a mutually beneficial exchange.
Must be comfortable and familiar with off-grid living and have an interest in conscious, sustainable living.
Living space: A beautiful two-story pole house, overlooking beautiful gardens and the ocean. Queen size bed in one room and a single bed in another. Two large desks available in separate rooms and a beautiful lanai (porch) near a 60-foot tall Bodhi tree. Indoor kitchen and an outdoor shower and composting toilet. (Highspeed internet available, with ethernet cords.)
Duties: Maintaining and beautifying the gardens, food forest, and paths; mulching and pruning fruit trees, and driving wwoofers to the local markets twice a week.
(All caretakers must have a car.)
The gardens and food forest need daily maintenance so we are looking for stewards who love to tend and beautify gardens! We are looking for responsible, grounded individuals who choose to live an authentic, simple, and natural life.

Physical, mental and emotional stability.
No nicotine, pot, or alcohol.
Being accountable for one's actions.
Financial resources to cover personal needs such as food, clothing, medical care, transportation, etc.

A commitment to investigating stressful thoughts and stories.
A willingness to consider that authenticity and honest, conscious communication* are more important than being right.
The capacity to differentiate between reality and the stories which obscure it.
A willingness to own one’s projections and communicate simply, directly, and honestly.

The ability to follow instructions and a flexible attitude with daily projects in particular and with life in general.
