Communities with Openings
Corozal Town, Belize

Leave the rat race and enjoy a slower, healthier pace of life in Belize Central America. We are seeking approximately 30 like-minded socially conscious investors for our 20-acre intentional faith and health oriented altruistic community located between Corozal Town and Consejo Shores 1 mile from the Caribbean Sea in the northern part of Belize Central America. Belize is just a 3 hour flight from Miami or Houston and is English speaking.

About Belize

Located along the eastern coast of Central America on the Caribbean Sea, Belize is a unique blend of pristine nature, diverse geography and endless adventure. Roughly the size of Massachusetts, this relatively small country with only 419,199 residents is only 176 miles long and 88 miles wide and boasts rainforest–covered mountains, hundreds of cayes (islands, pronounced keys) and the largest barrier reef in the Western hemisphere. With over 40% of Belize’s land mass enjoying some level of “protected area” status, these diverse natural areas, lush with flora and fauna, form the basis of Belize’s strong appeal.

It’s no wonder, then, why Belize was part of the Mayan empire, and later colonized by the British. Formerly known as British Honduras, Belize became independent in 1981, however, it remains a part of the British Commonwealth. It’s these ties to Great Britain that make Belize an easy destination for visitors to enjoy. English is the national language and Belizean currency is tied to the U.S. dollar–exchanging at a steady 2–to–1 rate.

About Corozal District

Corozal Town is located 88 miles N of Belize City; 31 miles N of Orange Walk Town and S of the Mexican border. Corozal is a sleepy seaside town in the Corozal District, located just south of the Río Hondo (Hondo River), which forms the border between Mexico and Belize. Set on a crystal-clear bay, Corozal was an important center on the early Mayan trading routes, and the evidence remains in the ruins of Cerros and Santa Rita, and the old English Fort Barley. During the mid-1800s the modern town was settled with a large population of refugees from Mexico’s Caste War.

Itaxah Village is located between Corozal Town and Consejo Shores about 20 minutes from town and about 1 mile from the Caribbean Sea.

BIO for Chris Wood

Founding member Chris Woods’ natural athleticism led to his early successes, as well as his early injuries, on football fields across Virginia.  His intensive physical education as both a player and a patient was pivotal in developing his parallel interests of sports and healing.  

The United States NAVY S.E.A.L. program recognized his intellectual and physical gifts, but a shoulder dislocation during his aquatic training earned him an honorable discharge from service. After recovering, he devoted his “spare time” working at First Tee mentoring, and teaching inner city kids how to golf.   His own game improved considerably when he invented the Aquaclub* to rehabilitate himself to play golf left-handed, (which is how he met co-founder Wendy Carter).  Chris has continued his education by studying massage, acupuncture, nutrition, and how to make food your medicine.  He is discovering the joys of Belize, and growing his own food.  

Chris is developing a recovery and rehabilitation center for alcohol and drug abuse, and his mentorship has already made a huge difference in the lives of many locals and expats.  He has continued to mentor kids by assisting with Wendy’s Smarts in Arts program, and together they are changing the world around them.  Itaxah Village is the manifestation of decades of dreaming of a healthier way of life and he looks forward to seeing his orchards and community continue to grow.  

BIO for Wendy Carter

Founding Member Wendy Carter grew up dancing in waters across the country as a nationally competitive synchronized swimmer.    Her godmother, a renowned physical therapist, was one of her first coaches who taught her the mechanics of the human body both in the water, and in her offices where Wendy worked part time, and rehabilitated her own athletic injuries. 

She transitioned her passion for music and dance to land when she performed in several musical theatre productions around the United States.  Her growing talents as an actor took her to The Russian American Theatre Company in St. Petersburg Russia, an MFA from the DePaul Theatre School/ Goodman School of Drama, and eventually to Los Angeles to save the world in bad Sci-Fi movies. 

Wendy returned to Virginia to care for her terminally ill father, where started a kids synchronized swim team and joined an internationally competitive masters team and  became a gold medalist many times over. She earned a living as an actor, substitute teacher,  an adjunct professor at the business school of VCU, and as a public speaker with Fellowship of Christian Athletes among other organizations.  

A lifetime of reading great literature like The Diary of Anne Frank, 1984, and Atlas Shrugged gave her an inkling of the direction of the increasing chaos of the world.   Upon meeting Chris Wood, researching his vision of an intentional community in Belize, (and falling in love with him), she agreed to leave the America she had loved, and leap towards a different dream.  

Wendy is excited to be a real Caribbean mermaid, and use her multiple gifts at Itaxah Village aquatic healing community.  She started Smarts In Arts using kids karaoke, dance, art, and landscaping to teach reading, math,  science, and Bible studies.  She and Chris are Certified Emergency Response Team so that they can be better neighbors in their new home.  Watching Itaxah Village grow has been a joy, and Wendy is looking forward to sharing it’s sparkling waters with like minded adventures for whom the siren song calls.
