Ascending Spirit is an extended family network of communities for those who recognize that we are currently in the midst of an unprecedented opportunity for spiritual growth and would like to engage with other like-minded individuals in order to greatly accelerate our own, as well as aid in our planetís, spiritual evolution.
Our communities follow Network for New Culture and Nonviolent Communication principles.
Wind Ridge Cohousing is located in Lewis County, Tennessee, approximately an hour from Nashville and 30 minutes from Columbia.
It consists of land along a private road with a gated entrance and includes the Meadowhaven Community, a land co-op with members owning their own housing structures and a share of the co-op. Meadowhaven is designed for 20 homes plus common facilities.
Private acreage is also available as part of the community. All Wind Ridge Cohousing community members can share common facilities at Meadowhaven.
The property directly adjoins a large retreat facility and is part of a 400+ acre development of communities. It is located near The Farm community in Summertown.
We would also like to create an urban companion community in Nashville. Some of our members have homes there but they are not near each other and may not be suitable for a retrofit cohousing community.
