  • Description


    We are Jacob and Anna, 49 and 46 years old and we each have children, 7 in total. They are every other weekend here. Anna lives half of the time in Friesland in a small harbourcommunity and half of the time in Zwolle (with her daughters). We like to cocreate. Jacob worked all of his live at sea and at this harbour, also working at the shipyard am Anna is a psychologist and helps people with their journey in themselfs. The rest of the time we are busy with cocreating in the community, which is more and more developping.
    In the upcoming months more people will be able to live here; people who are willing to live pure, responsible and live their passion. After several months when the community is ready, we will also welcome people after a psychoses (we look at it as a possible spiritual awakening) who are searching for a stable, pure, loving +environment, where we all are equal.
