Mission Statement:

Harmony and Mastery of Self

Community Description:

Forming the core group of intentional living at Lemuria center. You can be part of this group of focused individuals who already live in the knowing, create peace and harmony, and enjoy sharing that wisdom. The intention of Lemuria Center is to bring together and form a small village of those who seek a 5th dimension lifestyle. Enlightenment or live connection with the soul, a passion for life and all living things, laughter, and working toward unconditional love. A blend of the human and spiritual beings in abundant joy. The focus of course, being the mastery of self. The center offer workshops, classes, special events and activities in wellness, consciousness, abundance, living in harmony, creativity, using your natural gifts ….(to be expanded in the future). If you are interested in living or giving service in an environment that fosters this lifestyle – contact me. We will each give service, each bringing our own unique gifts to the village to be combined to create the greater whole one.

Financial sustainability comes from the events, classes, and workshops, the organic gardens, the natural food co-op store, the manufacturing of prepared raw foods and natural medicines, and botanicals, spa and professional services, and another secret project.

Lemuria Center resides in the countryside outside of Guanajuato, Mexico, above a large body of water named the Presa Purisima (means purest water) and below a sacred site on Sombrero mountain. The elevation is 6700 ft. and the semi-arid climate averages 72 degrees year round. The land is 9 acres or almost 3 hectares. Currently on one side is an old rancho hacienda which has been renovated and is being used for spiritual retreats and workshops. The other side of the land is in process of being an intentional sustainable residential ecovillage inspired from the ruins of a temple above Lemuria Center. There are rooms available for the connected souls who are interested in staying and giving service. Permanent homes (built to suit) are also available to purchase. Each home design is completely unique, to be built from natural cob construction, with solar energy and water recycling systems designed to bring joy and harmony to the family within. Please visit our website for more details. The small ecovillage will be home to 11 families and will bless those who reside here with a place to live, give service and play in a magical world.
