Sustainable Lifestyle and Abundance
Moving toward a more sustainable lifestyle; we share many of our resources such as childcare and cars. We recycle, repair, reuse, and practice patterns of cooperative living together.
We live out of a sense of abundance and therefore approach community with the understanding that getting enough is more important than "counting beans" to ensure exact equality.
Shared Responsibility and Contribution
Creativity and engagement emerges in community from the individual passion of members. For community to work well, each of us adds our life to the mix. We choose how and to what degree we contribute and events take place daily that beckon us to be an integral part of community.
Living together as a interactive, multi-generational community allows and encourages us to continue learning from each other daily. When any of our values become thread-bare, we look for ways of reweaving our practices.
We respect and celebrate each life within our community and those whose paths brings them to our doors, honoring people for who they are.
Honoring Individual, Family, and Community Life
Balancing the many dimensions of our lives is a major challenge. For the continued well-being and growth of the community as a whole, we understand the importance of gathering, the need for solitude and reflection as individuals, and family time.
Supporting Spiritual Development
Coming from various backgrounds, we have a wide range spiritual beliefs and patterns in our lives (including those who don't adhere to any practice). As a community we try to encourage and assist each other in pursuing our individual paths.
We are part of a larger neighborhood and global network, participating as individual, small groups or as community in various ways.
