| BIRTHING CONSCIOUS COMMUNITY, CULTURE + MODERN DAY CULTURAL CREATIVES |
LIGHT DWELLINGS is a global bio-network & web, mandala of Cultural Creative Artist Colonies + Holistic Healing Retreat Sanctuaries. Each Cultural Creative Artist Colony is nested within a Retreat Sanctuary offering a whole-systems model for setting new eco-conscious regenerative models for living, health and wellness back into our modern culture, communities and into the fabric and well being of humanity. The Sanctuaries are intentional spiritual earth-based communities and eco-colonies integrating simple minimal elemental architecture symbiotically and synergistically within each natural system and topography with which it rests and resides. Anchored in both rural & urban contexts, each Sanctuary site utilizing both cutting edge green building technologies as well as the simplest natural hand-built indigenous and local vernacular design methodologies and techniques creating low-impact development that honors local people and planet. Small-footprint dwellings, receptive land-forms/earth-works to harness and distribute on-site resources and food forest/bio-systems are strategically designed and properly engineered and integrated to transform, reshape, realign and redefine the way our communities and culture connects with and lives amongst living natural systems, elemental and biological intelligence to build abundance and a surplus of resources in our human settlements. Each Sanctuary is designed and crafted with the utmost sensitivity, integrity and impeccability to the ecological surroundings connecting the inhabitants as integral components of, extensions of, observers of and stewards of the natural world, maximizing both their living and healing experience.
At the heart of LIGHT DWELLINGS’ mission is to reconnect and synergize individuals and communities to each other and the natural systems and cultural ways that inform and reflect their authentic and fully-realized nature and ethics of living. These community developments are vital gathering and connection centers, empowerment centers, chakras, expanding and transforming collective potential and actualizing that potential into material forms of transformative social structures that revolutionize the way we co-create and co-habitat in the modern day world. The emphasis is in social & community architecture guiding democratic design processes that honor local social, economic & environmental traditions & techniques while utilizing contemporary design processes that achieves affordability, efficiency, responsibility & accessibility to successfully reinvigorate community and culture. These cultural living centers and laboratories for community gathering, innovation & co-creation establish collective social, ecological and economical frameworks for living sustainably. Each center is inclusive in approach. In addressing the needs of the inhabitants and guests we engage in participatory design/build processes that emphasize and account for the needs of all, fostering equanimity and a strong foundation of trust amongst community members, building lasting resiliency, diversity of form and expression and appropriately scaled and oriented cultural structures that reflect the true character of the social & economic structures of each local and unique tribe,community, bringing inhabitants into proper alignment, right relationship, wholeness and wellness with one another and themselves.
This unique network of intentional communities provides a powerful context for humanity to live, gather, share, create and celebrate, and to collect and disseminate knowledge and wisdom, making profound and lasting soulful connections to further implement transformational frameworks to the fabric of the world.
Healing, birthing and growing conscious cultural creatives and visionary forward-thinking individuals and models of communal regenerative living is one of the primary foundational intentions within each Sanctuary. Each site is both a meditative refuge and a dynamic laboratory of creative process, investigation, exploration, celebration and collaborative inquiry and play. Each Sanctuary is comprised of programs guiding individuals through ancient indigenous medicine and wisdom traditions and spiritual teachings from around the world, offering world class cutting edge experiential learning, guiding individuals in reconnecting with and realigning themselves to their true essential nature, personal power, inner light and divine sacred nature.
