There's a new intentional and Spiritual community forming in Berkeley with a probably move-in date of May or June 1st. Come hear more about it, share some good food, and move to some of your favorite tunes.
The community will reside in a historic mansion on Dwight Way in Berkeley. There will be one room designated as a practice room for a wide variety of spiritually oriented practices including yoga, group meditation, sacred music and movement, shamanic journeying, positive visualization or "prayer" in various forms, and earth based practices as well as any practices brought to the table by residents. The hope is that we will engage in some spiritual practice together once or twice a month in a way that is comfortable for everyone and incorporates many traditions and inner work. Residents need only to be on some sort of spiritual path. This will be a home of diverse spiritual leanings and each resident will have the opportunity to lead practice nights. Group practice is not required but the vision includes it because it can be such a great way to strengthen community and help heal the planet.
Other common denominators will include creativity and using some of the yard space for permaculture.
We will total 11 residents who are over the age of about 27/28 and 4 residents under that age that will be mentored by us "elders". The mentoring will be casual and by choice - just through modeling and being there for the younger folk should they have questions or need someone to chat with. There are also 4 slots for children with parents. Queer and poly families welcome.
There is one slot left for a dog and one for a cat. That would total 4 dogs (the 3 now are medium and friendly) and 2 cats.
Rents will range from $550 to $800 a month plus about $50 in utilities. Rooms range in size from about 11 to 15 square feet.
The house should be ready for move-in this Spring, June at the latest. We will know more in a week after the contractor gets through assessing the work that needs to be done.
