Breitenbush Hot Springs Retreat and Conference Center: We are an intentional community and worker-owned cooperative, living and working on 154 acres in this rugged and beautiful mountain setting, serving thousands of guests year-round. Our emphasis is on service to our guests, each other and to the greater global and universal community. Working at Breitenbush requires dedication to this service ethic, a sense of joy and excitement about your work, acceptance of personal responsibility and accountability, a desire for creativity and productivity and a willingness to communicate openly and honestly. For more information about the community and the business, please visit our website at http://breitenbush.com/who-we-are/.

The Healing Arts Team (HAT): We are a small team of experienced LMT’s that aim to provide the highest quality session experience to our guests, and support each other in doing so by working together as a team to keep things running smoothly, chipping in on keeping our massage building clean, well-stocked and overflowing with a good vibe.

A Summer at Breitenbush: You will live in a roomy tent (provided) tucked into the woods, in a summer-village with other Breitenbush Seasonal Hires, on the edge of a gorgeous meadow. A summer kitchen is nearby with a propane refrigerator, stove and running water. Food is easy to come by here, whether you purchase it at cost from our organic pantry to prepare yourself in a community kitchen, help us eat the food left over by our guest meals or jump in on one of the many community potlucks that spring up randomly and often. Community events are frequent and a summer here is a glorious thing of which to be a part!
