I have to tell you I am so psyched...I spoke with the family we are woofing with today and WOW! it's going to be great. The woman whom I spoke with has ordered a Yurt and is just waiting for it to arrive. PLEASE, may I ask you to take a second, and lets say a collective prayer together to bring the Yurt to it's new home...and we the lucky souls get to be the first to live it it. Isn't that the coolest.
Not only that this lady is an Art Therapist. I am just so happy it's all coming together and how it's coming together is so special and magical and spiritual...
Anyways I want to share with you what I have found on Yurts. It's changed my view of them and opened my mind and I am just so appreciative of people who have traveled and shared their knowledge and developed and adapted their ideas and materials to function in different environments.

For a long time now I have been a huge fan of cob houses but these Yurts are super cool also. Check it out!
I love what it says on this site...
Yurts. Don’t Box Yourself In!
Create the space you long for: luxurious, simple or somewhere in betweenWith its circular design and spacious interior, the yurt encourages both social activity and quiet contemplation. With a few friends, you can set up a yurt up in a day or two. Wire it, heat it and plumb it just like a traditional home. Or go off-the-grid and live sustainably in a yurt. Create big family meals in the kitchen. Add a bathroom or a luxurious spa. Based on the traditional Mongolian yurt, also known as a ger, our high-quality, affordable, durable, Colorado Yurt could be just what you’re looking for!
OMG...isn't this the way it's meant to be...I love this idea...live off the grid.
Well let's pray the Yurt arrives from it's destination soon and we get to experience this life...as we go woofing.
What's woofing.. Check it out. http://www.wwoof.ca/
Stay Tuned...it's going to be interesting. Cheers.

Art Therapy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_therapy
Because of its dual origins in art and psychotherapy, art therapy definitions vary. It can either focus on dealing with the art-making process as therapeutic in and of itself ("art as therapy"), or on the psychotherapeutic transference process between the therapist and the client who makes art. The therapist interprets the client's symbolic self-expression, as communicated in the art, and elicits interpretations from the client. Read More
