The lodge was a heart opening experience. I felt so supported in my journey, and so connected to such a wonderful group of friends. The focus really felt like it was on our experience as individuals, making sure we're having a nice time, the focus was around that and less on the work so that felt really nice for a change. This was a life changing experience that has helped me a lot emotionally and has left me with some amazing friends who I've since met up with and stay in touch. I highly recommend this experience to people wanting to live in community. It amazing! Thank you the lodge <3

The lodge was everything I was hoping it'd be and more. I met people from all around the world who became forever friends, I enjoyed time in nature/stillness, I took classes I would never have the opportunity to take elsewhere. The work was enjoyable regardless of the task because the people in my community made me feel appreciated. If you enjoy being away from the city & want to experience community living, the lodge is for you. The hours are flexible depending on the task and the management is very open to adjusting for your specific needs. I feel so blessed for my time here.
