Chambalabamba is an ecologically-friendly community united in our desire to create a better world for ourselves, Mother Earth, and future generations. We are actuated by three guiding principles: unity, harmony, and personal integrity. In searching for a new paradigm that combines freedom with personal responsibility, our community is founded upon sociocracy as a complementary form of self-organization.

A Conscious Life Lived Deliberately

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life…” – Henry David Thoreau

Our Memories

A life well-lived is a life rich with memories. Chambalabamba offers radical living at its best. Living close to the land with others of like-minds provides opportunities to:

  • Make lasting friendships
  • Fellowship in a social circle with respectful boundaries
  • Learn new skills (organic gardening, cooking, building, etc.)
  • Enjoy a slower pace of life
  • Participate in community activities: music, dance, meditation
  • Revel in a year-round mild climate

Our Values

Community Goals

To approach life with humility, compassion, and a sense of humour. To support one another in the fulfillment of our personal and collective destinies.

Our Philosophy

We do not require a traditional (and easily corruptible) vertical government. Rather, we embrace the principle of sociocracy as the best way to harmonious and fulfilling community living.


A “system of government in which the interests of all members of society are served equally.”

Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference.”

– Kathy Calvin, CEO & President of United Nations Foundation
