Our community is located in the Coromandel, 15 min North of Thames. Up in the hills, surrounded by native bush, and looking out into the ocean, we have a small number of residents and volunteers living in a big house and a few cabins. We have a studio for classes, personal practices and communal events, and host regular workshops, ceremonies, sharing circles, bonfires, music, dance, healing practices, arts & crafts, movie nights, games, and other activities. We balance the social element of community with personal/ introspective time, for which this place offers plenty of hidden gems, unexpected animals and beautiful nature tracks to explore.
Together we share sacred knowledge with each other (and externally), and also reflect deeply, laugh lightly, love greatly, grow spiritually, be appreciated for our strengths and vulnerabilities, find meaning and belonging, live in harmony with nature, enjoy a communal lifestyle, and aspire to embody the values that underpin all ancient philosophies and spiritualities such as Yoga, Shamanism, Buddhism, Māori culture, various indigenous traditions, and others.
Sustainability principles encourage us to look after the land, build permaculture gardens (aiming towards feeding the community with plant-based organic food at some stage), recycle, grow sustainably, and share resources appropriately.
We intend to gradually expand our facilities, cabins and venues, through the continuous support of people who contribute with their skills, possessions or contributions, as well as by reinvesting 100% of our revenue back into the community (e.g. income from resident’s rents, creative initiatives and crowd funding).
a) Offer your skills (or recommend us to someone you know): We will need people certified in multiple skills to help out, for example builders, architects, electricians, plumbers, soil contamination experts, landscape experts, ecologists, transportation experts, acoustics experts, cultural heritage experts, and probably a lot more.
b) Offer things you no longer need: furniture, kitchen materials, house appliances, tools (for gardening, building, cleaning), spiritual decorations, mats, anything.
c) Help us fundraise (by using or sharing our crowd funding link below):
