April Battles  FOLSOM, CA
Hi my name is April Battles and I've been a Healing Practitioner and Instructor for decades.  My current goal is to build Peace and Serenity Retreat in Hawaii.  Please read about my beautiful vision for this learning and healing oasis.  At the very end I've included some additional information about the knowledge and skills I bring to the project with a few photos of what I do.

The warm, tropical islands are a great place to relax and unwind and learn new things. A place where you can ground and center. With that in mind, we plan to build a naturally and beautifully decorated, soothing healer's retreat on 3+ acres where you can come share your
knowledge of healing and wellness by teaching others. Or be able to take human, equine, or canine courses to learn more about healing and wellness in a spiritually unwinding center - all at affordable prices.

Here are some of our current plans for this valuable retreat:

- free lodging for teachers to encourage you to come and to bring your students

- A few round Yurt structures with many windows  for guests/students on a budget with a communal kitchen so you can purchase and prepare foods you especially like

- nice rooms available for those of you who may desire more privacy and greater comfort

- build our retreat at a little higher elevation with water views so you can walk and enjoy the grounds, the 'wheel' and other spiritual paths and we would love to have help with design

- create an excellent water purification system so you can detox while staying with us and rebalance your PH and cleanse organs

- solar panels so we can be eco-friendly

- design a fire pit and BBQ area with tables for eating and to watch the view where you can bring what you cooked or your favorite beverage

- hammocks so you can nap in the shade with warm tropical breezes

- an outdoor structure for yoga and meditation

- an exercise area with nice equipment

- 1-3 private classrooms and 1-4 massage or treatment rooms

- a hot tub or 2 for you to unwind while enjoying the view


Of course as we graciously receive your funding for this we will also give something back:

- anyone donating over $75 receives one free night stay and one night for each additional $75
- donations over $1000 gets you a 2 week stay and one cranial unwinding session and a surprise gift

We plan to use your help and input! We gladly accept any donations of services that can help spread the word and make this come to happen in 2016.

- we would love donations of tools, your labor of love and skills to make this a dream come true. Of course you would get to stay with us
free and be fed for helping out!
- anyone great with advertising will be beneficial to our retreat
- fund raising assistance is always greatly appreciated
- design and decorating help would be a valuable to our planning

Thank you for taking the time to learn about Peace and Serenity Retreat and we thank you for your generous donation!

We're loving it here. So soothing and relaxing and the locals have been so helpful and friendly. Looking at properties. We have $550,000 need another 400,000 for current market for a serene slice of paradise to share with you.

We welcome corporate sponsors and will add your advertising to our flyers and web page.

We've found a cove where the turtles come for the fish to clean parasites off their shells and will share this with you when you come. A local dive instructor can take you out even if you've never dove before after just one session in a swimming pool. How does it get any better than that?
