Program Details

Collaborative visitors are a vital part of this sphere; help with simple chores in our home kitchen, house & forest gardens to keep everything clean, organized & running smoothly. Daily work here is maintenance - "the laying on of hands" - it's how we get more love in the world. Kahlil Gibran says "Work is Love made visible." We work hard, play hard, nourish our shared earth, one another & love doing it.

We challenge ourselves and all collaborative visitors to honor and practice:

“The Four Agreements
1. Be impeccable with your word. [tell the truth - do what i say i will do]
2. Don’t take anything personally. [it's not about me]
3. Don’t make assumptions. [be curious - ask questions - share feelings]
4. Always do your best. [my best is enough & is different each moment]
Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom.
