We come together as a community in service to a higher purpose: to learn and teach principles of harmony with the Earth and one another in an oasis of natural ecology and spirit. It is hoped that members of our community will take advantage of the opportunities for growth, learning and enjoyment of a more natural lifestyle on the cutting edge of clean and regenerative technologies. Each person will fulfill responsibilities according to their talents, preferences and the community’s needs.
The members of our community come from a wide variety of disciplines, traditions, and backgrounds, all with the desire to share their talents with each other and the world at large. While it might be easier to develop a community of one religious or spiritual persuasion, such groups tend to become insular and opportunities for growth may be stunted. We celebrate multiple expressions of human tradition and endeavor that have been shown to elevate the human condition. It is our intention to provide an atmosphere that will raise the level of conscious interaction within the community, where compassion, service and trust may advance. We are developing a constitution which outlines the parameters of our vision and mission, and the behaviors desirable to it. Some will be permanent members of the community and others will come to learn on a temporary basis and then return to their homelands to teach, and plant the seeds of what they have learned in their own communities.
Our bridge building is intended to take much needed knowledge and technology from the fringes of creative and innovative processes into mainstream legitimacy. Additionally, the boundaries between vocation and avocation are blurred and contributions can be customized to individual needs and preferences.
Language which creates a spirit of patience, support, freedom, valuing, cooperation and enthusiasm is to be encouraged throughout. We desire to develop concepts which feel inevitable and irresistible, and inspire confidence in our ability to fundamentally improve processes and systems.
Our people are everything to us. Leadership is service.
VILLAGER CONDITIONS: Housing, healthcare, placement, training and education will be provided as a benefit of Cooperative Employee-Ownership, including dependent family members.
Villagers will be recruited in accordance with their in-life purpose, talents and abilities as openings occur within the producer cooperative. The more the cooperative prospers and the greater the villager's responsibilities and value creation, the higher the pay units.
So, as to have "skin in the game", new villagers are required to purchase cooperative common stock, which will be bought back by the cooperative at existing market value should a villager decide at any time to leave.
All Villagers who are Cooperative member/owners will have equal voting privileges at the annual meeting of the Employee-Owner General Assembly.
