Family of 5 seeking resonant community

Community Seekers

Hello! My husband and I have spent the past few years envisioning the intentional community we wish to anchor deep, lasting roots in & taking the necessary steps to disconnect from the hamster wheel in order to live a life in greater alignment with our big dreams. It’s been quite a process, and over time we’ve gotten a lot clarity on the qualities within a community that would be most supportive to our personalities & soul’s evolution, and I’m curious to know if there are any communities with openings that are in alignment.

We have a family of 5 (3 children ranging from almost 5 to 14) + a dog and cat.

I’m certified in reiki and as a Moon Circle Leader with The Wild Woman Project, and am a student of the Mysteries, called to walk the path of remembering & re-attuning to Gaia + the cosmos. I worked for 7 years in the hospitality/event industry before stepping away in 2018 in the midst of a spiritual awakening to allow myself to dive deeply into my inner world & rhythm, intuitive practices, and holistic healing. I’ve been on a spiralic healing journey since 2012, which continues to bring me into greater alignment with Spirit & deepen my passion for holistic wellness, and I feel that my experience with hospitality/events is meant to be integrated with my intuitive & energetic practices in support of the co-creation of sacred space (such as hosting women’s moon circles, immersions, retreats, community events, etc.). The ultimate dream is to have a space I can facilitate 1:1 sessions and group events, as well as accommodations for overnight/ extended stays. I’m an INFP & a manifesting generator so I need an environment that allows me the space to create/dream, juggle multiple projects, and pivot at will without oversight + solo time for recharging.

My husband is multi faceted & passionate, with 6 years of kitchen/chef experience in the hospitality industry, and is in the process of building the foundation of a holistic and organic meal preparation service where he aims to provide high vibrational meals for individuals & in group containers, such as events/retreats. He enjoys hands-on work, learning new crafts, creative endeavors, and would like to be more involved in tending the land, gardening, and assisting in the building of sustainable structures. He’s an INFJ + projector, and has a similar desire to honor the natural flow of his energy, to have a space that supports his creative endeavors and honors his need for solo/introverted time.

We’ve both identified more with the misfits & alternatives for most of our lives.. I’ve always been much more intrigued by those who take the road less traveled and are willing to push up against societal norms. We advocate for boundless self expression, and for us this includes the use of words like “f*ck” when desired. This may be offensive to some, and we’re conscious of our communication style, not obscene. We enjoy outdoor activities, arts, sports, metaphysics, and live music- heavy metal, hip hop + soul soothing and a wide variety of other genres. 

We are currently homeschooling/unschooling and desire a nature-based, heart-centered setting that allows our children to explore & thrive as individuals and in peer interactions. I see a space that encourages community engagement and fosters the learning of individual crafts & studies through the specialties & wisdom of members who wish to be wayshowers for the younger generations.

I see an expansive piece of land -much raw, untouched, natural beauty- with ease of access to a natural water source, a warmer climate, sustainability & permaculture practices, organic food production, community gardens, reverence for the land & reciprocity with the natural world. The exploration of alternative economy and shared resources, a community space, fire pit for gathering in circle, a labyrinth, and medicine wheel. I’m also deeply drawn to the idea of working with sacred geometry, crystals, & gridwork to support the harmony within the micro of the community setting and the macro of anchoring higher dimensional frequencies on Earth to support Gaia’s ascension.

We desire the opportunity to build/reside in a home of our own with ~2+ acres that provides us with enough privacy & space to expand on our personal visions, in alignment with the community’s collective intentions and in the company of resonant souls. We’re open to what options may be available while we are in the process of building, but do prefer a single family residence. It’s also important to us that we have full autonomy over our lifestyle choices. I do not drink & my husband rarely does, and though we are not avid cannabis consumers we do support the use of it medicinally & ceremoniously and would like the freedom to engage with it if desired. I ultimately see hemp being an abundant crop/ plant ally that can be worked with in many different forms and in support of the economic stability of a community- being in a location that doesn’t support this is not a deal breaker, but it’s of interest enough to include.

This vision is so deeply imbedded in my soul, and I feel it very closely & clearly in my heart..  I know I meant to share this, and potentially even be at the ground level of co-creation for a space like this. I’m grateful for all of those who took the time to take this in and would love to hear from anyone who may be able to share information, resources, opportunities, etc. 🙏🏻💝
