I have been living in an eco village for 7 years. In this video I share with you 4 things that I didn't expected before moving to an Intentional Community. A couple of years ago I went on a journey to find eco villages and sustainable communities and ended up moving to Damanhur Spiritual Eco community, and I realised that there were a lot of myths about living in an intentional community that I wish I had known before my trip. This video is for people who are interested in intentional living, eco villages and are curious about what to expect before visiting or joining an intentional eco community. I highly recommend that you watch this video and do your own research about global eco villages before planning your visit or stay at one. ► SOCIAL MEDIA • instagram ➭ 🤍 • instagram ➭ 🤍 DAMANHUR SPIRITUAL ECO COMMUNITY: 🤍 ► Business Inquiries or collaborations celastrina🤍damanhur.org (this video is about: rebeckacelastrina,intentional community,eco villages,life in an eco village,what I didn't expect before moving to an intentional community,common myths about living in an eco village,how to move to an eco village,living in an intentional community,what intentional living is like,what it's like to live in eco villages 2021,moving to an intentional community,how to become self sufficient 2021,damanhur spiritual eco community, Life in Damanhur community, 5 Things I didn't know before moving to Damanhur, myths about the eco village movement, tips on how to start your own intentional community)
The EcoVillage at Ithaca was established in 1991 and has become a mature communal village with three neighborhoods developed on 10% of the land with 90% of the land devoted to farmland and natural areas. Given that we're interested in communally living at Flock, we took quite a bit of notes from the EcoVillage, which is celebrating their 30th anniversary this year.

Of course, most of the "wealth" created by this economic model goes to a small fraction of the human population, so essentially we are destroying our planet to make a very small segment of the human population so rich they don't even know what to do with all their wealth. But there are some who are trying to change the way humanity interacts with the planet. I've lived at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, a model for a more sustainable way of living in community, for over 13 years now. My impact on the planet is about a tenth the impact of the average American. It's taken a while to get set up to live this way, and living this way hasn't been easy. It's a struggle to try to live in a way that mostly defies everything every American has come to depend on to make their lives easier. Technology provides many sustainable alternatives to replace fossil fuel equivalents. But inevitably living sustainably requires harder work and doing things the old fashioned way. Having lived this way for 13 years, I have a story to tell. Sustainable living may be a different way of life in many unrecognizable and unimaginable ways to the average American, but the average American might not imagine any of these could be positive on a personal level. They can only imagine negatives in a life without luxuries and conveniences they have become utterly dependent on, but there are so many benefits to living this way above and beyond the direct and indirect ecological impact. It's a holistic way of living that doesn't just apply to reducing your environmental impact, it restores your energy and life force in many ways on a daily basis. There are ecovillages all over the world. Not all may be as radical as mine, but you might find one that suits you, or you might start one of your own. 🤍 🤍 🤍
In 1994 a group of seven friends began living and farming together after taking over an 80-acre, 1974 organic farm 70 miles north of San Francisco that had been left to decay. They set up an intentional community around farming and wildlife restoration, as well as water management and permaculture, raising their families & learning by doing during a long-term restoration process that will hit its 50 Anniversary soon. One of the first actions taken in the founding of the Sowing Circle community was an agreement made by all partners that each owner’s “share” in the company that owns the land would not be linked to the land’s market value. The group worked with the previous landowner to create the first Organic Agricultural Easement in the country which protects in perpetuity the organic gardens and orchards from any development or any use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Today their Occidental Arts & Ecology Center (OAEC) is one of California’s oldest organic farms and their Sowing Circle one of its most-enduring intentional communities. At the start, they wanted to put to practice their ideas of permaculture, water management, and wildlife restoration. The idea was to live like the land-based communities that predated them- like the Southern Pomo and Coast Miwok-, much like an old-growth forest. “Until recently, the majority of human settlement has functioned much like an old-growth forest,” writes OAEC kitchen manager Olivia Rathbone. “Humans... have long had the skills and knowledge to actually increase the biological carrying capacity of the land rather than deplete it, to render the concept of 'waste' obsolete.” Today, their kitchen waste is composted, either directly or via their chickens. Their human waste is sent through one of three commercial-grade composting toilet systems - one of which involves mycelium - and which are being monitored by the county and state as testing grounds for more widespread use. Tree clippings (for fire management) become mulch. Their greywater is recycled in the gardens and even their seeds are saved in a very extensive heirloom seed library. There’s a long history of land-based communities here, after the Southern Pomo and Coast Miwok cane Italian and Portuguese homesteaders in the late 1800’s and finally, from 1974 through 1990 the Farallones Institute established their Rural Center here (a counterpoint to their Integral Urban House in Berkeley) where scientists, designers, and horticulturists lived together and experimented around appropriate technology and sustainable design. Their cluster of 5 300-square-foot passive solar cabins (financed through the state’s Office of Appropriate Technology in the seventies) called “Solar Suburbia” is still the main residential cluster, though they have been enlarged to 700 to 900 square feet. Brock Dolman moved here in 1994 as one of the seven founding friends of the Sowing Circle. His advice to those hoping to start their own intentional community or permaculture practice: listen to your predecessors rather than trying to follow trends or recipes for design. “It’s really taking our cues from what is the genius of nature that has been in that place for eons and eons and eons. It has adapted to the conditions: temperature, moisture, soil, availability, slopes, aspects, the traditional ecological knowledge of indigenous people's interacting with that landscape over time. Why we would disregard those clues and impose an idea that we happen to make up because we think we have a better idea. I think our sense is that that's just human hubris and folly." 🤍 On *faircompanies: 🤍
In this largely illustrated talk, Kosha Joubert shares how community-led regeneration can become a source of solutions for today’s societal challenges. Kosha takes us on a journey around the globe to discover ecovillages, envisioning a world of empowered citizens and communities, designing and implementing their own pathways to a sustainable future, and building bridges of hope and international solidarity. Kosha Joubert grew up in South Africa. She went on a pilgrimage through her own country in 1991, discovered a community of black and white South Africans living together, and has lived in intentional communities and researched intercultural communication ever since. Currently, she lives with her family in the Ecovillage of Findhorn, Scotland, and serves as President of the Global Ecovillage Network. She is fascinated by the phenomenon of Collective Wisdom: how can we transform our communities, organisations and societies into systems of cooperation, creativity and innovation for a planet at peace with itself. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at 🤍

This is more of a personal video talking about my story and my motivations for moving to an ecovillage and making a commitment to doing things the really hard, and hardcore sustainable way. Given all the ecological problems facing the planet, we need to go further in our lifestyle activism. Cooperation with others can be one of the best ways to make our lives richer while consuming less resources, and living in an ecovillage makes cooperation much easier.

In this video I will speak about life really is like in an intentional community, and what is the most misunderstood aspect of intentional community life to give a more truthful image of life in an eco village. This is crucial for you to know before visiting an existing eco village or intentional community and also before you embark on the journey of creating your own eco village. As an extra I have also included footage from how my summer has been! I hope you enjoy this video and that it can give you an insight in the reality of intentional communities and eco villages! ► SOCIAL MEDIA • instagram ➭ 🤍 • instagram ➭ 🤍 DAMANHUR SPIRITUAL ECO COMMUNITY: 🤍 ► Business Inquiries or collaborations celastrina🤍damanhur.org (this video is about: rebeckacelastrina,intentional community,eco villages,life in an eco village,misunderstood aspects of intentional community,ecovillages to visit,how to move to an eco village,living in an intentional community,what intentional living is like,what it's like to live in eco villages 2022,moving to an intentional community,how to become self sufficient 2022,damanhur spiritual eco community, Life in Damanhur community, What I didn't know before moving to Damanhur, myths about the eco village movement, tips on how to start your own intentional community)

Atamai ecovillage is a settlement near Motueka on the south island of New Zealand. Their aim is to create a traditional style village for around 200 inhabitants which is resilient in the face of global challenges such as peak oil and global warming and food security. They are currently seeking new residents.
"Together with others, I know I can get much further." INTO UNITY tells a story that is both personal and universal: that of our deep sense of longing for a truer way of living. In this beautifully shot short film, we follow the stories of three individuals and their journey to ecovillages: their beauty and their challenges, and how they can bring us into closer connection in a hectic modern world. Video shot and edited in Angsbacka, Sweden, by Siri Lof and Steven Sonneveld The Global Ecovillage Network (GEN) consists of a constantly expanding network of intentional communities, ecovillages and national ecovillage networks, bridging all cultures and continents. GEN-Europe is set up to support the experimental creation and preservation of human settlements that not only sustain but regenerate their social and natural environments. Ecovillages are communities with vibrant social structures, vastly diverse, yet united in common ecological, economic, social and cultural values and goals.
Five years after getting permission for their ecovillage, the folk at Lammas are still happy.
In 2007, Ole and Maitri Ersson bought the rundown Cabana apartment complex in the city and immediately began to de-pave parking spaces to make space for what today is a huge permaculture coliving space and urban food forest. Today, the Kailash Ecovillage has 55 residents who all help farm where there was once pavement, grass, a swimming pool, and an overgrown weed patch. The community is well-prepared for systems collapse; they have extensive rainwater collection and storage, plenty of produce and they process their own sewage. Their permitted sanitation project complies with international building codes for compost toilet and urine diversion systems and turns their pee and poop into nitrogen and compost. Here, nearly everything is shared. There are two community electric cars - donated by the Erssons who no longer have a private car-, shared bicycles (and bike trailers), an extensive fruit orchard, berry and grape patches, and a considerable community garden space. Photovoltaics provide about two-thirds of the energy consumed by the complex. Neil Robinson is the community’s full-time farmer who has sold thousands of dollars of Kailash produce at farmers' markets. He moved in as a way to prepare for systemic collapse. “I wanted to learn to grow food and then have a system that could step in. We have water, we have food.” Ole explains, “We're in this zone where it's not a question of if, but when, we're going to get a Richter 9 earthquake… that's going to break all kinds of grids, the power grid is likely going to go down, the sewer grid almost undoubtedly and it's probably going to take months, if not years, to get the sewer system going again.” Their sanitation project can absorb 60 adults for months. Rents here are lower than the Portland average because the Erssons want Kailash to be accessible to all income levels. There’s a 300-person waitlist, but Ole hopes others will follow their example. "If you look at it from an economic perspective no business would want a complex landscape like this because it's way too much maintenance, but what you have to do is turn the maintenance over to the residents, and then they do it: they get joy; it's an antidepressant; it's a way of creating food; it's a way of creating community; so you have to do it in a certain way, but it's definitely a lot more work than the typical grass and shrub landscape for sure." 🤍 On *faircompanies: 🤍

The last time I toured this strawbale house at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, it was half done, and it was pretty impressive then. Now I'm back again with a tour of the finished house and there's a new owner, Cat, to tell us about what it's like to live in the house. Cat's Cradle, as the house is known, provides examples of just about every method of natural building imaginable: cob, strawbale, earthen plaster, wattle and daub, cordwood walls, earthen plaster mosaics, bottle walls, lime plaster, passive solar design, and earthen floors. It's a work of art with many artistic and aesthetic flares. As well, its passive solar design and round shape make it efficient as well as practical for its semiretired owner, Cat.

In 1995, a group of people sensitized by the relationship of human beings with nature, we decided to live in an environment that minimizes the negative impact on the environment and in which the spaces are in a relationship with each other. THE ECOALDEA OF VALDEPIÉLAGOS was constituted on January 9, 1996 as a housing cooperative society, and during 1996 and 1997 it carried out promotion work by various means (articles in newspapers and magazines, visits to possible interested groups, call for informative meetings, etc.) , to cover the 30 partners needed to carry out the purchase of the land and its subsequent development and construction. Our first objective was the creation of a neighborhood of 30 single-family homes with criteria of bioclimatic architecture and ecological materials. After many vicissitudes, in 2008, the houses were already finished and we started living here.

Nathaniel Nordin-Tuininga grew up in the ‘70s and ‘80s living off the land with his parents on an intentional community in Western Oregon. In 2020 he returned to his roots, parking the tiny house he’d built on the edge of the meadow at the Lost Valley Ecovillage and Educational Center. In the late eighties Lost Valley founders began work restoring 87 acres of logging land to its native oak savanna glory. One of the first communities in the US to experiment with permaculture practices, they created ponds and swales to redirect water through the property and used techniques like selective thinning of forests and controlled burns to recreate meadows and grasslands. Today, the property has gone from a monoculture of Douglas fir to a rich variety of oaks, conifers and deciduous trees. The property is now a maturing food forest feeding residents, as well as all types of wildlife. There are also organic vegetable gardens, a native plants nursery and fruit trees that feed both inhabitants and the local community. Nordin-Tuininga spends most of his days barefoot, loving the feel of “forest bathing” and being in direct connection with nature at as many nerve endings as possible (he also still climbs trees). His tiny house is not just off-grid, but unelectrified so he can follow the natural rhythms of the day. He uses a cooler as a refrigerator and simple meals, but he can fall back on the community kitchen when necessary. The ecovillage has about 30-50 residents at any given time, but it stays open to short-term residents with social forestry camps, permaculture design courses and a “Holistic Sustainability Semester” for anyone interested in integrating into the community for 3 months while learning about regenerative agriculture and permaculture, medicinal and edible wild plants, rewilding and the teachings of the natural world. Nathaniel wants to make clear his gratitude towards all Indigenous peoples to help create the community and regeneration projects at Lost Valley, “References to Indigenous practices of the past are shared with the awareness that many such practices have been carried forward and others are in the process of revitalization. Lost Valley Education Center is in active partnership with members of the Kalapuya and other Native teachers to support this process”. 🤍 Thank you Chien Escalera Duong for the drone and other footage: 🤍HeyItsChien.com On *faircompanies 🤍

Welcome to our Mandala Eco-Village community project. Meet Indra Wardhani, the general manager, with close to 20 years of experience working on capacity building, community development, and ecotourism projects with multinational organizations, including the federal-backed German International Cooperation (GIZ). Indra is a graduate of Sustainable Tourism for Economic Growth and was the recipient of a grant from the Australian Embassy in Jakarta for the Development of Community-Based Tourism in Lombok. Indra Wardhani has been pioneering the idea of an eco-village for a very long time but never had a cause to take action. That was until she came across Invest Islands and its impact on the local community through the charity-branch Invest Islands Foundation. This alignment of values sparked the journey that’s now bringing to life the first eco-village on Lombok island, where bedazzling rice paddies and awe-striking ocean views meet to provide the best of the 2 worlds in one single location.

In urban Los Angeles, about 3 miles west of downtown, 500 people live on 11 acres where priority is given to bicycles, fruit trees, greywater, veggie gardens, clotheslines, compost, shared spaces (tool shop, art space, bike shop), micro-businesses, on-site natural food coop and chickens. The Los Angeles Ecovillage was launched over 2 decades when its founders looked to the neighborhood for inspiration. "The way in which we think about making an urban ecovillage, we have to ask ourselves the questions, 'what are the problems in your neighborhood with air, soil and water'", explains co-founder Lois Arkin. "And for us, in the beginning, it was discovering that the children in our neighborhood had 20% less lung capacity than children in other neighborhoods. So what could we do, we could stop driving." * Filmed by Johnny Sanphillippo more of his stories about urbanism, adaptation & resilience: 🤍 LA Ecovillage: 🤍 Original story: 🤍
Otamatea is an ecovillage situated about an hour from Auckland on New Zealand's north island. The property is divided into 5 acre plots, with shared common land. They operate under an organic and sustainable principle, giving rise to natural buildings built from straw bale and timber, and which take into consideration architectural features such as passive solar design.

Today sustainable living is more common than ever with a growing number of people becoming aware of the need to care for the environment. And at the Currumbin Ecovillage the residents have found that by tying sustainability with community, everyone can save on living expenses and enhance their quality of life whilst caring for the environment. In this episode of Future Homes, Ben O’Callaghan show us through the award winning Currumbin Ecovillage and his families environmentally friendly home. The houses within the ecovillage are all designed to work with nature. The community shares knowledge and resources to ensure everyone can employ smart green design principles in their own homes. Which overall makes for a more comfortable living experience and reduction of energy costs. Design features such as Northern orientation, placing windows on both sides of rooms for better ventilation and using concrete to create a solid thermal mass inside the home all reduce the need to heat and cool the houses – in fact none of the homes in the ecovillage require air conditioning and many of the residents within the community have no water and electricity bills due to the design of their homes. The strong community within the ecovillage means residents share resources with each other, making life easier and cheaper for all – such as community gardens where fresh fruit and eggs are readily available. This all enables a higher quality of life, connected with each other and the environment. Ben points out that due to the village approach residents have access to facilities they would otherwise not, such as a swimming pool, library, community hall and more. And he believes this kind of sustainable, community based living is the way of the future, especially for new smart urban developments.
