There are no Reader Comments on this community. Add Your Comment on Gaiam One
This community is 6 years old. It is situated in the Talamanca mountains of Costa Rica. The 10 acres is bordered by the Rio Chirripo (land of eternal waters in indigenous language). The temperatures range from 60-85 deg F (16-28 deg C) all year round. We enliven the land with Biodynamic agriculture and some Permaculture principles. We work with nature spirits.
We seek others who wish to work with the land, farming as well as infrastructure upkeep.It's a way of giving back to GaiamOne and is to be shared by residents. We are actively seeking persons who are willing to help with farm activities (plants and animals)!
We wish to live as an embodiment of awareness of the unity of all of life. This is of paramount importance. Recognition that there is only ONE and that the apparently separate "us" are That also is essential.
Look online to see writings of non-dual pointers such as Adyashanti, Jac O'Keefe, Mooji and others to see what is the main importance at GaiamOne.
There are currently 5 residents, but we could accommodate as many as 10.
Be guided by your heart rather than mind...
