We are a young couple with an infant and and 8 year old who lives with us part-time. We have found a 10 acre property which is zoned for 4 houses and currently has 1 built on it.We are seeking between 2 and 3 other owner families/individuals to join us in an intentional co-housing on Denman Island. The property is fully serviced with electricity and water to the house and is near to downtown Denman (which is really quite tiny and quaint. We currently reside on Denman Island and love it here.
We are both meditation practitioners and are interested in joy, honesty, good food and good people and good honest hard work. Seva practices much yoga and is currently roofing his first cabin. Karyn is an acupuncturist and vipassana meditator (as taught by S.N. Goenka) and long time Denman resident.
We are seeking other gentle and hard-working souls to live with in close community. Each family/individual will have their own house, which can be owner built or contractor built. There are many details to be figured out and we look forward to hearing from you if you feel called to contact us to persue this opportunity.
