Rational. Sustainable. Live. Love. Learn.
This is a gathering place for progressive Naturalists who want to discuss creating an exceptionally rewarding life experience within an education & science-oriented, technologically advanced, therapeutic, egalitarian & eco-friendly anarcho-communist farm resort setting.
Our Therapeutic Ecovillage, in an effort to fulfill our social entrepreneurial mission (which includes self-sufficiency) will consist of at least 4 parts. Each component (listed below) will serve two basic functions: 1) provide for the direct needs of the community & 2) deliver revenue from outside sources.
1)Our Experimental Organic Farm:
a)Year-round delicious organic sustenance for residents & guests.
b)Hands-on training for our ‘Life Improvement’ curriculum (Permaculture, animal husbandry, food preparation & more).
c)Experimental farming benefits.
2)A ‘Life Improvement’ therapeutic Eco-Resort featuring: ABA, REBT, Secular Humanism, Permaculture & various non-mystical Eastern practices.
c)Spa (yoga, meditation, massage, exercise, Dietitian, personal services)
3)An Ecoversity: Education/Research Center that develops vocational/technical/academic research & training for rational living & sustainable development.
4)Peripheral businesses derived from mission-related factors, community needs & the marketable skills that members bring to the enterprise.
Our Therapeutic Ecovillage Community Enterprise will:
1) Provide ‘Quality of Life’ research, training & support for ourselves, our guests and future generations of humanity.
2)Demonstrate the exceptional lifestyle & individual happiness that’s derived from living rationality, communally & ethically.
3)Grow and replicate.
