Mission Statement:

Spiritual Sustainable Family

Community Description:

Rainbows End is a forming eco-community, spiritual sanctuary, and sustainable organic farm. Located in the South Pacific on a special island in Fiji, we are truly blessed by the abundance of paradise. Rainbows End seeks spiritual and sustainably minded individuals and home-schooling families with children to co-create a holistic, inspired, and truly sustainable life for future generations.

Rainbow’s End is located on a beautiful remote island, but is also accessible by regular flights in a small plane, or on one of two ferries that bring people and supplies to the island. There is available land for building and pre-existing, off-grid homes for rent or sale. There is ample land for permaculture and organic gardening, beautiful and productive reefs, and pure air and water all around.

There are many ways to be a part of Rainbows End, owning or co-owning bare land, existing homes, all off-grid, and co-housing. There are also options for building simple dwellings on communal land for anyone welcomed into the Community not interested in owning your own land or home. Based in organics, permaculture, spiritual practice and evolution of consciousness, we are calling together our spiritual family to come Home!

We have been here nearly 5 years, building and growing in this haven. We are surrounded by hundreds of acres of natural bush, though we cultivate only 2 acres, and miles of reefs are out beyond the forest below. Come for our Experience the Rainbow week, or month(s), where we offer a relaxing and inspiring visit, where you can meet us, and experience whatever you choose! Swim in the ocean, snorkel, walk on the sandy beaches, and get a feel for life here in Fiji. We host individual and small group retreats, health and spiritual programs you are also welcome to join. From cleansing, to yoga, meditation and breath training, and swimming with dolphins! Stay for a few weeks or a month in retreat and work in the gardens. It is a great way to get in touch with the island, our way of life and practices, and with yourself as well, as there are few distractions!

Note: we have decided due to the remoteness of our little island paradise out here, and the lack of interested parties, to spend part of the year travelling to other communities and spiritual centers. If you have interest in a home exchange, or other type of exchange, or interest (and qualifications) in caretaking in this amazing place, l
