If we surrendered to earth's intelligence
we could rise up rooted, like trees.
— Rainer Maria Rilke
A Habitat That Re-Connects Humans To What Matters
"The Land" is envisioned as an ecological sanctuary for humans to rest, restore and re-connect to Life—a place where people are nourished by and practice serving Love, honoring our relationship with Earth.
THE MISSION: Collaboratively cultivate whole-some food, shelter, and a soulful habitat that honors wild-life and supports residents, overnight guests, and day visitors in awakening to the essence of Being.
Presence…being present to life is our priority
Respect…all forms of life receive our consideration and care
Relationship…open-hearted connection with self and others is our aim
Authenticity…revealing and accepting what-is is our commitment
Sustainability…local community and future generations factor into all our choices
INTIAL PROJECT SCOPE: The Land is anticipated to be in Whatcom Country (near Bellingham, WA), with up to four residential stewards mindfully tending to the needs of wild-life, cultivating food, and guiding personalized overnight-retreats and small-scale experiences that offer practice in the art of being.
The Land project currently welcomes partnership with an area land trust or other non-profit that can offer insights, expertise, and a level of environmental guidance, as well as fiscal sponsorship to allow for tax-deductible donations. The intention is that our fiscal sponsor ultimately receive title to the land, ensuring its protection beyond the life cycle of the project.
