We call our place "Paradise Mountain", as we have 52 acres of secluded paradise, with 5,000 acres of unoccupied government crown land surrounding us. We are high up on a 900 foot ridge on Vancouver Island, overlooking the Straight of Georgia/Salish Sea and Texada/Lasquetti Islands. We are wanting to build a modest and rustic Yoga Camp and Spiritual Retreat, and hope to open it up to the public for the summer/fall of 2019.

We are looking for Yoga or spiritually-minded individuals. Generally, couples or 2 helpxers travelling together work out best up here as most 'jobs' require 2 people....unless you are strong and can handle working alone sometimes. We need people to help clear and build areas for tenting sites, outhouses, cabin sites.....for 4-5 hours a day, or more if you wish. It would be nice if there was at least a 3-4 week commitment, so helpxers can leave their "Footprint/Legacy" on our Paradise by doing/building their own long-lasting project which they can be proud of. ... more inside

Opening for April
APRIL-also looking for MATH TUTOR (Grade 10)

Wow, exploring right outside our backdoor along side the Campbell River is a beautiful place to experience Fall and Vancouver Island`s great outdoors!!! Although we live on a one acre town lot, our back yard is situated on a cliff over looking an accessible beautiful heritage river, with a nature park setting of ferns, douglas firs, maples and alder trees. You can often see deer, raccoons, bears and the silver backs of salmon and Steelhead fish jumping in the ebb and flow of the riverís pools. We have trail access to the river below, where you can enjoy listening to the sing song of many birds, tubing down the river/swimming in the heat of the summer, and trying your hand at casting for Steelhead fish. As well, our neighborhood is the access point to many scenic nature walking and biking trails. The 1st three photos are at our home and the others are nearby nearby trails and local vistas.
