Mission Statement:

Spiritual Permaculture

Community Description:

This community has not established yet thus is not residential at the moment. Looking to be in Colorado, west coast, BC, etc. (not in Texas).

Would Love to connect to others who would Love to help start an Eclectic Spiritual, Buddhist and Tantric Ecovillage (Neo-Tantric). It would include a Retreat Center, Sanctuary and Tantra Temple all based in a permaculture-based Ecovillage. Looking for people who are interested and passionate about permaculture, Tantra, the spiritual path that wants to create a powerful center and knows of some land to do so (Tantra: Spiritual Awakening through Heart-Centered Sensation particularly Sacred/Spiritual Sexuality).

The vision is to start an egalitarian, Spiritual Eco-village that is Heart-Centered. Would love to utilized geothermal energy system for our electricity as well as wind, solar and hydro. It would be ideal to do an ecovillage at a hot springs location.

Heart-Centered community allows people to be authentic, sincere, to speak from their hearts, accepting and allows an environment to be healing, compassionate and caring. Cultural Transformation and Healing is key for this (unlearning our societal programming).

I want to build this community from scratch using natural building techniques. We also want to be a retreat center and holistic healing arts center.

Please contact me if you share in this vision. Looking for others who share this passion in Heart-Centered Culture. And, looking for investors and others who have money in order to build this ecovillage.
