We have met many beautiful soulmates on the journey towards creating a sustainable spiritually-focused community. However, it has become clear that very few are ready at this time to be part of a full-blown community building effort long term. This has resulted in a lot of turn-over and a lot of visitors, which has impeded progress. Instead of struggling with this situation and only being able to serve the very few who are ready for true heart-centered, spiritually-aware community, we have decided to reorganize and form a retreat center of sorts, likely a meditation sanctuary where classes will be offered, so that we can meet the needs of the many. This restructuring will require a lot of changes and more money. We are in the process of making those changes and raising the money needed to continue. We anticipate 2014 as being the year in which we will be able to restart in earnest. Please send us an email and we will keep you in the loop. Blessings and thanks for your interest.
- Type(s): Spiritual or Religious Community or Organization
- Decision Making: Voting (majority or super-majority rule)
- Identified Leader: Yes
- Leadership Core Group: Yes
- Additional Comments:
In general, everyones input is valued and asked for, from the time they arrive, and all decisions are made by consensus. Hierarchies of control are not part of higher dimensional consciousness. However, because of the nature of our current society, and the transitionary difficulties that almost all are experiencing now, a protector is sometimes needed to keep things focused and on track, and remove negative influences from the group. The community leader currently serves in this role. The ‘initiation’ period is typically a year. By the end of the 1st year, a person’s role within the community is always made clear by spirit.
