Who we'd like to live with:

We realize that, as humans, we are all “a work in progress.” We seek people who aspire to leave behind all harmful addictions (including substances and behaviors) and who are committed to staying on a path of spiritual development through community service.

We are looking for people who are:
  • Strongly spiritually orientated (without being preachy) - we are students, and orient our lives by practicing the teachings of: A Course in Miracles, Eckhart Tolle, Sermon on the Mount - New Testament, Tao Te Ching and I Ching, Thich Nhat Hanh (atheists would not be happy here :-) Our Spiritual Beliefs
•Skilled as carpenters, gardeners, cooks/food preservers (or excited to apprentice in these skills and good at taking direction).

•Organized and orderly

•Clean and Sober

•Team-spirited - able to merge with the group

•Cheerful, glass half-full types who smile habitually :-)


•Physically and mentally healthy



•Self-responsible for emotions and responses to circumstances

•Familiar with consensus-decision making, or willing to learn

•Debt-free and in good legal-standing

We prefer NOT to live with:

· Violence in any form

. Active addictions to unhealthy substances or behaviors

· Tobacco

· Alcohol – except for very moderate use (“special occasions”)

- Illegal drugs

· Meat consumption

· Domestic pets (dogs, cats and horses) We have chosen to make human relationships, and our impact on local wildlife and the larger environment the higher priority and are firm in our no-pet policy.

· Poor hygiene

· Loud and messy people

· Unresolved legal or financial matters

· Unsolicited sexual advances

· Religious or political fanatics, or atheists

- People with a strong aversion to God-language

· Toxic chemicals - this includes strongly scented body-care products like perfumes, soaps and shampoos and laundry detergents.
