We are a community of like-minded locals and internationals who share a passionate commitment to living a conscious and creative life. Though we are primarily a Spanish-speaking latino community, we are proud to share our home and our values with people from all walks of life. Here are some ways you can participate:
We have many videos throughout the years. We wish to keep making them fresh and new for you to be able to keep up with our constant changes and evolution.
Our vision is to create a safe haven in this world by enabling a way of life that is free from judgement, oppression, competition, gossip, shaming, anxiety, and – ultimately – fear. As a collective, we agreed to put love, cooperation, and human relationships above all else, and as individuals, we agreed to live with a sense of honour, authenticity, humility, and personal integrity. We share a genuine reverence for beauty, art, and nature which shines through in our landscape, our dwellings, various forms of creative expression, and lifestyle choices which are health-focused and ecologically-minded. We are committed to sustainability, which includes leaving room for change and growth, in order to secure long-term health and abundance within our cherished community.
Though we are respectful of all individual opinions and lifestyle choices, our community could not thrive without each person’s total commitment to the community. That is, first the needs of the community that must be met every day. After that, we are free to do as we like in the spirit of the community. This is known as «collective freedom». Real freedom comes with responsibility.
Unity, Harmony, and Personal Integrity are 3 pillars which we try to maintain at all times.
Unity: We make all decisions as a collective, ensuring that each community member’s voice is heard.
Harmony: We vow to live in harmony with one another and with nature, by always stopping to consider how our individual actions and words can affect our brothers and sisters, neighbours, and Mother Earth. All conflicts must be resolved without compromising as soon as possible. Though conflicts are infrequent, we can use non violent communication to help resolve conflicts (cnvc.org).
Personal Integrity: Reciprocity is a part of life and we are motivated to reciprocate by being great community members for the privilege of living here. In addition, to always be cultivating our personal integrity to be as authentic, honest, and real as we can.
One of the greatest things about living in community is collaboration and cooperation, working with others together. At the same time we, like everything are evolving, or devolving. How we handle challenges determines this. Is it with love and effectiveness or not? Love should never be confused with tolerating behavior outside of our vision. Living from love sounds great, but how is it manifested really? Right now, we hope to bring Non Violent Communication here, the language of compassion.
