Mission Statement:

spiritual, Inner-work

Community Description:

We are an intentional community founded upon the belief that humankind evolves through a conscious awakening of each individual. We believe that everyone has something to offer and that by nurturing and expressing our natural gifts and talents, we benefit the whole. We are egalitarian, cooperative, and consensus-oriented, with an emphasis on sustainability. We encourage people to pursue their dreams and right livelihood while helping each other to become self-aware and to live according to our true natures.

We are at a turning point where humanity is now awakening to the realization of our true potential and responsibility as creative beings. We all have the choice of what we wish to focus on and thereby what we create. Letting go of old emotional patterns and constraints is not an easy task. If it were, we would all have done it long ago. It requires courage, decisiveness, and tons of sweat and tears, but liberation is possible and within reach for all of us. The vision of this community is to provide a nurturing environment for mutual support and encouragement on the path to personal liberation.
