Mission Statement:

Intentional Community

Community Description:

A change is taking place in the world, both spiritually and economically. Our religious culture is changing to a more spiritual culture of “we are all one,” thereby bringing the world social structure of an economic system based on the exchange of money for goods and services to a society that is based on sharing of resources for goods and services.

“We hold our diversity and differences to be sacred, both individually and culturally, and we seek a common idea about progress. We choose our path by consensus in a sustainable, human scale, egalitarian community to support healthy human development and success in the conceivable future. We envision a community where individuals, neighbors, and families seek inner wisdom and can flourish in a diverse culture of trust, cooperation, and respect for all life.”

This is what the Avalon Intentional Community group site is about: sharing of resources within our community and with other communities, eventually building a community of like-minded people. Please feel free to browse through the Avalon group site and join in on discussions. Blessings.
