Ardhanarishwara is the name of a Hindu God and Goddess joined together in one body and in marriage. The diety personifies spiritual enlightenment as being a blend of the masculine and feminine. This community is for two-spirited (transgender male-to-female, or female-to-male individuals), for their partners, and for transgender admirers.
To my knowledge, there is no other place in the world that is set up intentionally and primarily for transgenders as a respecting, supportive and nurturing "safe haven".
Our worldwide community includes all professions: musicians, artists, crafts persons, builders, farmers, herbalists, holistic healers, doctors, therapists, scientists, etc, etc. How potentially fulfilling to live at,, vacation at,, or in some way be connected to this one-of-a-kind gathering where YOU are the majority, YOU are appreciated, You are safe, open and free.
I am open to your input and suggestions regarding "the ideal location" for our community. I have been searching for property on the island of Maui in Hawaii as a possible location to develop a completly sustainable eco-village. If we located in Hawaii, We would be living in true Paradise in a Polynesian culture who's Elders still have the highest respect for those of our kind: the Mahu and Mahu wahihi.
Aside from all the typical eco-village amenities such as: alternative energy generation, solar water heating, fruit and vegetable permiculture, free range poultry, goats, fish farming, rain harvesting and catchment, ocean vegetable and fish harvesting; the vision may expand to include a retreat available to international travelers/vacationers/visitors.
I have a modest sum of money to invest, but with several others willing to join me in this vision, we could buy a sizable tract of land, (or re-hab an aging hotel, an old plantation, purchase an abandoned military base, school, etc).
If you're fed up with the failure of the American dream, and agonize about a world that is doomed, I solidly believe this island will easily survive the coming global collapse. Like a Noah's Ark of enlightened souls, we will be far-away from the chaos; in the nurturing warmth and beauty of Maui,, or ??.
