  • Description

    Description

    We are on 160 very private Acres in the Sulfur Springs River Valley 20 minutes from Bisbee Arizona. Our higher altitude makes our summer weather cooler then most of Arizona and the summer rains are lots of fun. We also have air conditioning.
    It has been my lifelong dream to live and care for Sacred land in loving harmony with kindred Spirits and now this Dream is becoming reality. Our current projects include plastering our Earth Bag Dome, clearing tumbleweeds and caring for and planting trees. We are gardening in raised beds and will be planting more organic vegetables. We are installing solar and doing art projects.
    We are working hard to make the farm a true oasis in the desert.

    My partner of 33 years is an Artist/Shaman and I am a sexuality educator and Whole Foods cook. We are Buddhist oriented Pagans with a strong interest in Mystical Christian archetypes as we were both raised Christian but have returned to our ancestral Pagan roots. We are dedicated to helping in the reemergence of the Devine Feminine. We honor all spiritual paths including Agnostisim and Secular Humanism. Our farm is evolving into a kind, loving and vibrant place to be. Ages of our residents and guests have ranged from 6 months to 70 years old.
    We particularly welcome kinky people and all LGBTQ folks. Medical marijuana, natural healing, herbal and plant medicine are welcome. We are members of AANR (American Association for Nude Recreation) and our land is clothing optional. Be who you really are, wear what you want!
    Volunteers enjoy going into Bisbee with it's music and art scene, Historic Tombstone and several mountain ranges.. There is much to see in the area; caves, wildlife, birdwatching and amazing star gazing.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The land here is magical! It is refreshing to the Spirit to be here. Learn the basics of building with earth. Currently we are plastering our earthbag dome.
    I will teach you as much as you want to learn about nutrition, Whole Foods preparation and living a healthy life, while you experience the joy of eating good food. Most of our food is Organic and plant based.
    You will meet a diverse group of intelligent, loving and fascinating people and expand your heart and mind.
    You will know the magic of the desert, the blazing stars and the incredible silence. This is a place for self healing, growth and learning.
    There is much to learn and do around Bisbee.
    We also teach TRE (Trauma and Tension Releasing Exercises) to any guest that wants to learn.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We welcome all ages, genders and sexual orientations, diverse lifestyles and spiritual paths.
    Our land is clothing optional.
    We currently have one dog and 3 indoor/outdoor cats.
    Bisbee (Named one of America's best small towns by USA Today) is a 20 min drive away. It is a really unique place that almost feels more European than American at times. And some call it Maybarry on acid. When it gets hot or you feel like some snow and forest the Chiricahua mountains are a 40 minute drive away. The biggest sky island in Arizona is nearby. If you are curious about Mexico, the border crossing is 30 min away at Agua Prieta a town of 80,000. I could offer rides into Bisbee and possibly other places you might like to go.

    What else ...
    There is so much to see and do in the area, especially for artists or nature lovers. We are in or near 5 different mountain ranges, Kartchner Caverns, Coronado National Monument, Tombstone, Sonoita wine country and more! Engage and meet local artists, take classes at the Bisbee Craft School, and soak in all that small-town Bisbee life has to offer.

    We enjoy excellent year-round weather with 4 seasons. Usually not too hot, or too cold. Temperate days and cold nights in the winter, hot days and cooler nights in Summer. Sunny skies 350 days each year!

    Blessed Be and Namaste.
