Community Description:

This is an invitation to be part of an Intentional Rural Community (IRC)now forming in Western Canada, probably British Columbia.

The project co-ordinator is Michael Greenstein, founder of the Wholistic Community Network (WCN). Michael is providing the initial leadership and has created a 9-page IRC proposal.

Our vision is that of a community guided by wholism, a way of living that encourages the balanced use of heart and mind, spirituality and science, faith and factual proof, etc.

We want to create a type of ecovillage where people of all ages and backgrounds are using the latest technologies in the fields of food and energy production, building construction, and interactive communication in a gentle and humane way. Our community setup could include greenhouses, fishponds, small-scale manufacturing workshops, therapy rooms and offices, guest accommodations, common meeting and eating hall, etc.

We see a community that is comfortable with scientific and spiritual practices and where the common goal is to create balance and harmony in all our relationships.

To learn more about this emerging community, please download the IRC proposal and invitation from the Wholistic Community Network website at Look for the IRC link.

Be well.
