In the more beautiful world my heart knows is possible: young children play freely with their friends and have many brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles around them, not just related by blood. Food is healthy, alive and grown with gratitude. Community converges in meaningful activities for the purposes of learning, healing, creating and communicating. Our rituals are conscious, and enacted for the purposes of reminding ourselves of our place in the natural order. We give spontaneously and for the joy of it, and people feel safe, abundant and inspired.
I envision a sustainable community grounded in spiritual values, working and playing through the art, healing and ritual. This is a community designed to integrate nature and culture in a way that creates the maximum amount of life-force. The interplay of these three elements emerges to create an environment that supports a state of flow, whereby individuals are synchronized to the laws of evolution in an optimal way.
This core practice of the community is mindfulness, developed through daily practice of meditation. Understanding that each individual has their preferred path towards the state of living meditation, the emphasis is not so much on what you do, but how you do it – aware.
