Ingenium is a new, innovative residential village where expressive artists share their talents and passions, and inspire each other to cultivate their healthiest, most creative selves.
Ingenium is a residential property that will house six expressive artists and their families. We are open to creative souls of many types: writers, musicians, filmmakers, dancers, painters, sculptors, thespians, craftspeople, even organic garden designers, alternative builders . . . people who have one or more artistic passions that they generally practice on a daily basis.
We have the common goals of healthy and clean living, ongoing personal growth, cooperative communication and decision making, an absence of substance or media dependence, aesthetic individual and group environments, and holding a compassionate and supportive mindset.
We are forming into a close, yet individually autonomous group - developing common grounds, a common house with shared facilities, shared studio and workshop space, special gatherings and collective projects; combined with small, individual clustered housing either rented or owned, independent personal economics, independent spiritual persuasions and the like.
We consciously acknowledge that both personal creativity and cooperative group processing can be developed as a vehicle towards enhanced sapience. Personally, this is experienced as heightened perception, sensitivity, intuition, insight, innovation and compassion. For the group as a whole, a dynamic is formed of inclusion, mutual well-being and an advanced collective wisdom.
We recognize that inspiration derived from both artistic expression and group consciousness promotes deepened interpersonal commonalities as well as physical, mental and emotional health. Our primary goal is to both model and practice a lifestyle where fostering personal growth and creative spirit, especially in the context of an on-site, supportive, like-minded group, enhances our natural aptitudes, social relations and holistic well-being.
