  • Description


    A wonderfully unique opportunity (but, not for everyone) :
    We're a well-established intentional community, based on mindfulness and conscious living, in the mountains between Santa Fe and ABQ, New Mexico. Music, theater, performing arts, creative projects, healthy living/wellness, meditation, spiritual growth and intentional movement are all cornerstones of our existence.

    Key words that describe our chosen way of living: Laughter, kindness, respect to all, enthusiasm, organic, fun, inspiring, collaborative, focused on becoming our best selves to be available for service to others.

    We'd welcome folks interested in experiencing our community...who enjoy participating in and helping with
    a variety of projects in a positive and creative environment!

    *️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️ For those interested in learning more, we now have a website with more information about who we are, all of the amazing things we do here, what accommodations are like, and more - with pictures! We can provide this if you'd like a better idea of what we're all about.

    A few areas in which we enjoy having a bigger team for:
    ~ kitchen support
    ~ construction and renovation projects
    ~ general maintenance
    ~ general house cleaning, as well as maintaining rental properties

    ~ nature path and labyrinth maintenance
    ~ gardening

    Daily morning and evening Meditation & Intentional Movement classes are open to all.

    Let us know if you'd be interested in visiting.
    Many thanks and we look forward to hearing from you! ~Lisa

    With 310 days of sunshine & wide open skies, New Mexico has a FEEL that is difficult to describe. A few of the things that contribute to that feel is that you can explore: 1. the many vibrant Native American Tribes and nations; their arts & and cultures 2. Santa Fe (the oldest capital city in North America) home to the Santa Fe Opera, Georgia O'Keefe Museum and the George R.R. Martin Meow Wolf Experience... 3. ABQ which is ranked among the top 3 cities for the T.V. and Film industry...and home of The International Balloon Fiesta... 4.the mountains with countless hiking trails with some incredible hot springs as well. 5. plus, an unbelievable variety of nature to explore ~from Petroglyph National Monument to Tent Rocks to White Sands, Chaco Canyon to Taos...etc.
