Ok here goes. Looking for a man 31-45 to share a simple life with me, and more community/tribe. I envision living mainly off the land, building our own little homes, and sharing the work among us all.
Someone who is humble, open minded, emotionally intelligent, has a deep reverence for nature and interest in personal growth, knows what he wants and needs.
Organic gardens, food preservation, animals, bon fires, drum circles, music, dance and outdoor life/play. I am looking for someone to grow and learn and thrive with who is also not interested in me being there sole source of connection. Rather someone who shares the value of living in community, raising children in community, having a personal spiritual practice and connection to the land that feeds them equally. I am not drawn to sitting on the surface of our existence. My meditation practice keeps me constantly questioning, deconstructing and reconstructing, and unknowing. I am looking for the same- another humble soul who does not claim to know! I also enjoy solitude, and appreciate someone who knows how to be with themselves.
My philosophy on relationship- we are in each others lives to learn, grow and heal, and the most important thing to me is that we have to tools to do that . I don't strive for easy, that doesn’t mean Its a battle, to me it means its real. I studied a form of NVC.
Things I bring to the table as far as homesteading- some organic veggie gardening, food preservation, wood harvesting, composting toilets, very interested in building but minimal knowledge-would LOVE to meet someone who would teach me to build. I have lived in community, lived alone, traveled extensively, I want to grow roots. I am very interested in off grid lifestyle, I have never completely lived it though. Mostly I bring joy in working hard, in being present with the process, in being sweaty and dirty and tired and alive. If work/life stresses you out, we probably won’t click very well.
About me- I am quiet and simple in terms of what sustains and makes me happy. Looking for someone who will appreciate that as its not everyones cup of tea. I don't look for tons of conversations, debate, philosophical back and forth, social stimulation, entertainment-(read- internet, tv, youtube, facebook, movie, drinking culture.) I don’t need to be entertained and I am not interested in entertaining you. Sometimes this is what conversation is to me. I AM interested in deep connection- and in someone who understands what I am conveying right now. I am kind, loving, loyal and trustworthy. I love deeply. I am also cheerful, silly, wild and unconventional. Things that are important to me-music, dance, art, joy, laughter, family, growth, healing medicine in all its forms, emotional intimacy, quiet, having my bare-feet the ground, caring for the earth, eating whole food, learning how to be self sustained, independence, interdependence, respect, live and let live, no dogma-rules-morality-rather INTEGRITY and compassion. I am interested in health and it has been my experience that that comes first from spirit- from living in tune with nature and in love with people. Everything else is secondary. I love to work hard, chop wood carry water, lay down in front of a cozy fireplace after a long days work makes me happy. Having someone to lay down next to, even happier. I do body work by trade, am bilingual, complex, multifaceted and also very very simple.
I don’t have land, however have a couple potential prospects to build on while not owning the land, rather stewarding it. In Vermont. I envision yurts, tiny houses, etc. Its not an ideal land situation, It could be temporary, it could be a life experiment. I am more interested in moving if you have land or finding land with someone. I enjoy cold climates and the seasons, mountains, forests, rivers, green. But I am open .
I'm looking for Tribe of all shapes sizes and kinds, women reach out as well!
Sound promising? I don't like to spend much time on the computer and as contradictory as this seems, not interested in having extensive conversations on here. Sometimes its hard to know where to start to find people that resonates, this seemed like a promising place. If you got this far, thanks for reading! PM me, tell me about yourself, we can exchange photos and lets go from there. Not looking for pen pals. I am 5,9, fit, brown dreads, blue eyes, girl next door type:)
Thanks for the tip, just thought I’d add as it may be helpful to put into context. That I live on an intentional community. Its not that simple, because out here in the middle of nowhere I don’t have the time to go meet people, and then have them fit into the community I already live in..It’s like what comes first the chicken or the egg. I’m trying the other way around now.
Potential tribe members reaching out from far away!
You sound delightful so I thought I would write.
So we've got mountains, forests, rivers (ok, so only one river, but its called the Rio Grande!) and it get's cold here, but I won't lie to you: This is the desert and it ain't for everyone! We've got a pretty green corner of it and our ambition is to make it greener.
My wife and I are interested in building community around the homestead we are tied down to in the urban/rural weirdness that is the South Valley of Albuquerque, NM. We've got just under three acres on which we practice regenerative agriculture. Presently we are heavy on the animals (Turkeys, chickens, goats, rabbits, llamas, possibly soon pigs) but we've got the beginnings of a food forest established and have a good track record with vegetable farming. We can't offer more in the way of lodging than a place to park a camper or a few nights in a bed. But the neighborhood we are in has great potential and we need more like minded folks around us. We've made one good farmer friend just a half mile away and A several others within 10 miles. After six years we feel like we are beginning to get a taste of the community we hoped we would find. If you venture out to find your place to put down roots, you might consider putting our area on your visit list.
Well, I am younger than you. I have land. Near the mountains and ocean rivers rainforest and waterfalls. I am a professional builder and gave lived alone for 3 years, so Id say I'm pretty good with having my own time and space. Here's an ad I made a while back.
I've just started my permaculture garden and lifestyle 2 years ago this fall. I have run through a number a of failures, but am getting a lot done. I have a garden and a pond that are just beginning to take shape. I still live in town and drive to the farm every day. The land still belongs to my parents, but the more than less have a do nothing approach. Slowly, my cabin is being built and plans are coming together. I originally wanted to start a community, but now was thinking that it would be better to start a relationship with the right woman then move into developing a some sort of circle of friends or community.
