Design and proposal for support of transcendent creativity...
Cultural diversity with spiritual consciousness is essential - welcoming each other with respect, kindness, learning and understanding. This also includes people of all ages and abilities, and of any economic status.
Living and working together in community is a spiritual practice, where co-operation means with each other... and with guidance from each person's inspiration (co-operation with spirit, as any artist knows), and then also verified by consensus among members of the community. Depending on viewpoint, there are no leaders, or everyone is a co-leader.
Each person's time is equally valuable, by definition. Maximum 'free' time for healing & creative work. Minimal overhead of all types, including community meetings & chores.
Ecological appropriate technology, and off-grid independence from conventional 'resources'.
Proposed resident population of 10 to 50, including students, with additional capacity for hundreds of visitors during public events. Non-resident membership is limited by the size of the universe.
Proposed community resources, projects, businesses - theatre & art gallery, restaurant & bakery, greenhouse, gardens & housing around the community.
Proposed experiential 'non-school' open educational environment - including music/dance/theatre, media-art production, ecological & appropriate technology, holistic health...
