Living in Community
We are a group of individuals who have come together with the common values of Freedom, Sustainability, and Consciousness. The shared importance of these core aspects of being allows us to live as a unit, participating as individuals, and yet working with parallel purpose and mutually beneficial inspiration. It is thereby easy and natural that we achieve common goals in both tangible and intangible aspects of reality, without having to “work” or to do anything we are not truly interested in doing.
Here in the Garden of Eden, we honor the balance and relationship of Freedom and Responsibility, as that applies to each of us as individuals and as it affects group dynamics. When living connected, freely, and responsibly, it is easy and natural to see how that which benefits one also benefits the whole group and vice versa, and also how that which is to the detriment of one is also to the detriment of the whole group. It is also easy and natural to see how each person brings a unique set of perspectives, talents, abilities, and inspirations to the table, and when each person is given the freedom and responsibility to flourish, the group as a whole benefits from the complementary and synergistic dynamics that naturally evolve.
Our vision for the expansion of the Garden of Eden is to allow a community to grow, as individuals who share our values and inspirations are drawn to participate and find fulfillment and purpose in investing and applying themselves to this community. In the New Paradigm, life is meant to be easy, enjoyable, and abundant, and community is a key aspect of that as it plays out among us. Human beings are social animals by nature and thrive best in environments where the social element is incorporated and honored at a foundational level. When you have a group of people living together with common values and goals, it is incredibly easy for every task and need to be met simply by everyone doing exactly what they love to do.
Through the increasing value brought by each individual, this community shall be activated to a high degree of thrival not only capable of fully supporting and sustaining all here, but of providing a rich and fulfilling experience of life. We also feel inspired to create new communities in other locations that are also based on the core values that are the foundation for our life here and now.
