Young professional looking for a friendly place to live
- Seeking Community
- United Kingdom
Hi everyone, I’m George, 32. I’m looking to leave my busy London life behind and join a friendly community to lead a more green, peaceful and meaningful life. I’m looking for somewhere to move by end of May, 2019.
About me: Biologist by education, I’ve worked with websites most of my life and for the past few years I’ve been transitioning into holistic healing and therapy, my lifelong passion. I’m currently working on an ambitious online project focused on personal development, fulfilment and spiritual growth, which consumes most of my time.
== WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR ==
[*] Ideally, I’m looking for a place with open-minded, friendly people who are open to everyone regardless of their nationality, religion, gender, race or sexuality.
[*] I love nature and looking for a location that has a lot of natural spaces to roam. I’d love a place where there’s an opportunity to grow food, herbs and flowers, sadly in London that’s an unachievable dream.
[*] I’m a bit of an introvert, which simply means that I’m respectful of other people’s space and prefer hours of passionate discussions, swapping stories and laughing in the company of my friends, rather than mingling and getting to know many new people in a large social event.
[*] I’d love a balance between having my own quiet corner to retreat to when I need to work/write/do research or simply to rest; and spending time with friendly, respectful, supportive people to help one another, do communal tasks together or simply enjoying little things in life like nice hikes, playing sports or grabbing a cuppa.
[*] I’m open and willing to adapt to any reasonable community ethos and values, as long as a particular belief system or religion is not mandatory to its members. I can adjust to most dietary or lifestyle preferences (I’m currently mostly vegetarian). I never had much taste for booze or recreational drugs, but don’t mind either, as long as they’re not a requirement for socializing within the group.
[*] A group with non-religious spiritual interests (meditation, yoga, personal growth etc) would be great, but not essential.
[*] My long-term vision is to have a holistic healing practice and perhaps join forces with other practitioners in similar fields to run our own small retreat centre. This would bring in visitors to stay in natural environment while recovering mentally and physically, attending lectures, courses, workshops as well as having group and one-on-one therapy sessions to make the most of their visit.
== WHAT I CAN OFFER ==
[*] I have a lot of experience with all things IT and web, including website development, graphic design, photography, marketing and advertising. I’m always happy to share my expertise and devote time to worthy causes, which could help bring visitors, funds and raise awareness to any community venture or project.
[*] I have a reasonably stable, location-independent income and am happy pay a fair rent + my share of community expenses.
[*] I have a long-term goal of running a holistic therapy practice, perhaps growing it into a retreat centre. My current online project can provide a flow of interested visitors, which can be of benefit to local community by providing accommodation, local recreation, events, services, selling locally grown/prepared/produced goods, offering other complimentary therapies etc. There is a huge potential for growth and expansion in the right setting.
[*] I’m polite, respectful, friendly, helpful and reliable (I’ve been told). I like my space clean and tidy, cook well (both veggie and omnivore), am well-rounded and well-versed in many subjects and always eager to learn more from others.
