Hot Hot Heat

Posted August 13th, 2007

The heat has come and it seems to be staying! The dog days of summer are finally here! And the Hostel staff and guests seem to be embracing it wholeheartedly, spending a lot of time in our beautiful lake, swimming, canoeing and hanging out on the dock. When the lake seems to be just too far away, and we’re in need of a quick cooling down a dip in the nicely chilled spring feed pool will do the trick! An afternoon nap, or catching up on some reading in a hammock under a shady tree seems to be the way to staying cool as well.

With so many wonderful projects getting finished up around here the last couple weeks Mattchew felt his time here for now was done and headed out today on his next adventure. Thanks for coming and all that you did!! Also Southwood our master of Jamaican cuisine has also moved on, returning to his full time job, so thank you Southwood for so many delicious meals!

Staff is once again dwindling to low counts, with out the help of our great work exchange things wouldn’t be getting done with so much care and attention, however more permanent staff would be just the kind of love the forest could use right now! So if your interested please send us an email or give us a call.

Thank you to the midwives that came here this weekend from the International Center for Traditional Child Bearing and gave some workshops on alternative child birth options and concerns of the womb. The feed back from the guests was great, they really enjoyed the topic and the information they were given.

Some things to be reminded of are the sweat lodge on the twenty eighth and the Mind Body and Spirit retreat starting the thirty first. Both events still have openings so call soon to hold yourself a spot!

Until next time,

May The Forest Be With You
