This Friday, the Las Vegas Co-op is having a meeting in downtown Las Vegas and that will be bringing in a good number of people who want to talk about building community.(Click here for details.) We're going to take that opportunity to update our Las Vegas friends on Kailasa, our group's 1,200 acre sustainable intentional community project in Redding, California. You may think you know what we are up to, but it is evolving and growing very quickly and the vision adapts as the socio-econoimic system changes and crumbles around us.
We'll meet at 5:30 in the Beat coffee house as the opening act for the main event upstairs with the Las Vegas Co-op. Come see what some of the innovators and creators of our community are actually doing to affect a change.
Sean, Kitty, and the Kailasa Team
Welcome to Kailasa
Kailasa is a Sustainable Intentional Community Development System designed by bridge-walkers for those who are ready to transition mentally, emotionally, and financially into a way of being that is self-sustaining and Self-aware. We are an openly transparent network of non-profit and for-profit organizations consciously working in unison to maximize synergy. Embracing change and maximizing adaptability, we are working within the existing guidelines and regulations in order to create a set of alternative living systems that gracefully run in parallel with the current declining paradigm. Many components have been monetized to quickly satisfy financial obligations and to then subsidize the creation and revitalization of independent, self-supporting, sustainable communities.
Utilizing the non-profit 501(c)(3) legal structure, the Kailasa Institute is headquartered on a pristine 1,200 acre intentional community in the Northern California town of Redding. Kailasa has its origins in the Awareness & Consciousness Group of Southern Nevada, a non-residential intentional community of 500 awakening beings in Las Vegas. Working together with like-minded land-based projects, we are quickly developing and field testing numerous systems, documenting it all, and providing a very rich Open Source resource library to the global community found at www.OneCommunityRanch.org.
Our initial land-based community is to be an incubator for a number of autonomous intentional communities, including the sustainable ventures and systems necessary to support them. Each revenue stream is operated as independent divisions under the Kailasa umbrella. The revenue streams for the initial project include a Healing and Event Center; a boarding Academy and charter school; a Multimedia Production Company; an organic Seed Farm and sustainable commercial agriculture program; and an Alternative Living Systems division that would use the sustainable systems to create and revitalize other land-based communities. We are very open to adding or modifying our revenue streams to fit the interests of our investors as long as they are in alignment with our values and it is made clear as part of the investment requirements.
Our model is sustainable, scalable, and duplicable and is designed to be very flexible with regard to the revenue streams needed to support a particular community. This allows the composition of the group to determine the nature of the revenue streams, not the other way around. Additional communities may then develop their own unique character, revenue streams, and contribution.
Where it can, Kailasa aims to migrate invited visitors away from a financial exchange for services to one that is a meaningful exchange of services. The Kailasa Energetic Exchange Program is a flexible-duration, residential work-while-you-study program that works much like a time bank. Our “Keepers” are able to participate when financially they might not be able, while our labor and operating costs are dramatically reduced. This makes us very competitive in ventures where labor is a significant factor such as high end web production, very experienced healers, and sustainable organic agriculture.
