Hello, my name is Glenn and I run this retreat. I live 3 weeks out of the month here and one week is inSeattle where I have my psychology practice and main Aikido dojo.

We are a permaculture retreat facility of 18 virgin northwest forest acres located on the long beach peninsula in southwest Washington state. We have a large orchard with plenty of apples to be picked, a vegetable garden, many beautiful plantings, and a few domestic animals (one duck, Quacky, and a dog, Nala).

We ask for 25 hours of help a week and the rest of the time is yours to enjoy the beauty of the peninsula.
Duties include gardening, wood-splitting, moving firewood, pruning, occasional pet sitting, keeping the lodge clean, ect. The property is large so other maintenance projects are sure to come up.

There are a few nature trails that connect to our property and an beach bike trail about a mile away. We have a few bikes that you can use to get around, itís about a 5 mile ride into Long Beach. Being on Willapa Bay there is plenty of nature to explore and we have some kayaks you can use to paddle around. We also have a sauna that is available to use.

I have a dojo on the property where we train Aikido. The time of the classes changes depending on when Iím in. The dojo can be used as a meditation/yoga/qi gong quiet room. I also have a live in training program for aikido students.

We would love to have you come and stay for a couple of weeks or a month. Hope to see you soon.
