I live on a small island off the coast of maine. we are a 20 minute ferry ride from portland.
with my background in Traditional Chinese Medicine and a wide range of Western Physical Therapies as well as Nutrition, I offer 3, 4, and 10 day Jumpstart Cleanses for people 50 + looking for an opportunity to explore delicious, simple, and graceful ways to come back into their senses; taste buds first - in new, fresh ways, and to feel even more connected with their whole being and (website hidden) freshing our lifestyle feeds the transformation to a truly sustainable life right ?!
have been meditating for 40 + years, teach chi gung as 'movement as prayer' and have a personal yoga practice. am a 'friend'/quaker - of the mystical tradition.
I love nature ~ gardening, walking, hiking, biking, skiing, snowshoeing, swimming, sailing; love art; love food / they are nature reconfigured right ! . . .
you can walk (+ferry ride) from here to our treasure of an art museum ! it's a sweet, lively 17 min. walk from ferry terminal trailing up through charming historic Old Port business district to Downtown District - being able to walk to the art museum is part of my criteria of heaven ~ living on an island is another part of that criteria !
love learning; love teaching. have taught and still do everything from spinning, weaving, drawing, sculpting - in the distant past; now traditional chinese medicine, zen shiatsu, acupressure, chi gung, nutrition, drawing, 'finding the calm - easily: the body is an instrument which we can tune', 'movement as prayer', 'inhabiting spirit - wholly inhabiting our bodies. . . our very be-ing', and 'sound as play; sound as healer".
find people and life fascinating ~
I discovered airbnb through a friend and really enjoy this community. Have stayed with a number of other hosts and enjoyed my experience very much. wanted to open up this lovely space and peaks island to you.
