This is a great moment of transformation. Now is the time for great ideas that re-tool our capacity to do good.
The Resonant Village Project is a sustainable community model and integrated business/life/education system. The idea is focused around healthy living and teamwork to build a community from the ground up. We want to share knowledge and use the collective resources within our ranks to build a better future for us and make an example to humanity of a better way to live that also integrates fully into the society model. An entire system of living will be built into our community including farming, architecture/construction, banking/alternative currency and education.
I'm looking for a strategy partner to help me with an idea that I think has the potential to do a lot of healing. Check this out and tell me what you think. Ive been wanting to do something like this my entire life and got so much push back I thought I could never make it happen. Maybe now is the time due to our collective realization of what is important in life in this moment.
The idea is to put together a type of alternative community that pools a collection of people with a varying set of skills. To build the community under a newly created religion so that we can benefit from the tax loopholes. To buy land and create a house-building collective where we use alternative building techniques like earthcrete/hempcrete, rammed earth, bamboo, strawbale, timber-framing etc. I would like to model the system similarly to Auroville in India where they have built an amazing sustainable community. To use modern technology and build the community as a type of business that provides some goods and services to the greater world. To start we will use the alternative construction focus to do workshops as we build houses for our members. To put Art and Music and Kindness at the heart of the intention of the community and come up with a simple system of regulation and incentive based motivation for the members.
That is just a very quick overview, what i would like to do is find a group of people interested in building an alternative community and create an initial plan with a team of vision leaders where we articulate the plan with the best of our business experience. How amazing would it be to have a community like Auroville but to build it on our own. We would be able to articulate a cost for this operation and a model for how we can grow it sustainably and to pull in the needed resources to build it. Ask yourself, would you rather be contributing to the Amazons of this world or would you rather build a healing community which internalizes healing and learning and sends it out into the world with good intentions and actions. Sometimes waiting for the world to change is just impossible. Isnt the lesson of life to be the change you want to see in the world?
Last year I created an online learning system and ended up not using it (yet). Im tooled up with a slew of architectural knowledge, construction experience, business experience, farming experience, bamboo investment, musical talent and the ability to build the entire online component of the business including a store that represents the community. I would like to grow it into something of a community marketplace where members can sell their art and music and one of the big projects will likely be a community center that is built as a tool for the members to use to host yoga classes, music concerts, art and group content of any benefit to the community.
Sometimes when the world is breaking, the best you can do is to plan a better future. This is the plan I would like to build. If you are interested, please contact me or comment on this thread. Im putting together a big plan and vision for this but as this is meant to be a community exercise, I would really like to find a strategy partner to help build the vision and suss out potential issues that need to be addressed like legal hurdles, marketing, risk aversion, and planning to keep it from getting weird. It will be like a 24-7 permaculture class and music/art concert. Happiness abound.
There should be somewhere on earth a place which no nation could claim as its own, where all human beings of goodwill who have a sincere aspiration could live freely as citizens of the world and obey one single authority, that of the supreme Truth; a place of peace, concord and harmony where all the fighting instincts of man would be used exclusively to conquer the causes of his sufferings and miseries, to surmount his weaknesses and ignorance, to triumph over his limitations and incapacities; a place where the needs of the spirit and the concern for progress would take precedence over the satisfaction of desires and passions, the search for pleasure and material enjoyment.
