Mission Statement

The mission is to create this community as a prototype for the Utopian world of peace, environmental sustainability, love and equality that we wish this world to become through vegan and then rawfoods combined with yoga. See website for more.

Community Description

This is a beautiful boutique yoga health retreat based on the spiritual teachings of the Unification Organisation of Collective Ascension.

There is a large two storey eco-sustainable solar house on 160 acres of secluded forest in Nymboida Australia. Two more huts can be developed and a shed. Up to six people can stay in the house. More in the sheds or camping. More huts and a temple are planned. Those suitable will be assisted to build their own accommodation if they wish to live here.

Members must go through a visitor resident period of at least 3 months. They must follow the diet, vegan, and yoga and meditation practised here and do 4-6 hours work per day.

Perfect for yoga and meditation. In Summer it is naturist.

All are welcome regardless of race, gender, sexuality, creed, culture, age, disability.
