Forming Community

As of yet we are not living together, but we are working on it!
Our intention is to offer a space for people to live in peace and find what is right and true for them. A place for people to reflect on life and feel their way. It will be a place where people can really be themselves, to live creatively, freely, openly and honestly. A place that welcomes and invites true expression and ‘realness’. A place where people can choose to live simply, with nature, cultivating their garden and watching the clouds drift by.
