Forming Communities
El Mundo
We hope you are having a positive and affirming day of life.
After exploring happily  and living for some years within Australia, Canada, Thailand, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Ecuador,
the U.K., the united slaves and other countries.
Experientially exploring different cultures, subcultures, areas, etc…
and learning of yet,
other areas of other countries
which naturally have the qualities we are looking for
where we would chose to live…
We are ready to unite with others and co create our living educational community.
I currently live in the upper Patagonia of Argentina,
during the last year,
after a year of living in El Bolsón.
Amanda is presently in British Columbia.
The C Virus has kept us apart for some months.
Our relationship to one another is stronger then ever.
Our clarity within ourselves and together is clearer then ever in what we are creating for ourselves and to share with one another.
For me, its been clear for many years.
We are interested in collaborating with other deeply,
like-minded (is how some people articulate it…)
who we are interested in befriending are…
who how they actually live their lives
and who they are, within themselves
are in sync
with who we each are
and how we live our lives…
Finding people who,
what is most important to them within their lives,
for themselves,
are in sync with is most important to each of us
within our lives
and who we are.
we will have differences,
not in what is most vitally important
to us
and to them…
or, with minor exceptions
Co-creating and living in community.
– by our own personally clarified definition
firstly, within ourselves
and then discussed  –
of what living in community together would be,
in details,
with one another.
For a healthy, successful and lasting relationship
 we obviously must be…
for a lack of better phrase,
definitely, on the same pages.
As for the specific location…
Undecided as of this moment.
We are exploring
We are open!
In where I have lived and traveled so far,
I have most enjoyed living my life…
so far,
in the Hobart, Tasmania, Australia area.
within the Slocan Valley, British Columbia area.
Parts of Denmark and…
 a little of who I am,
my skills, experiences, insights, etc
and what I obviously value living in my life
and integral within a community
