I am in a spiritual retreat. It is a spiritual retreat of my creation. There are people of many different religions there, all in their separate places, but with common places where all can join in.
There are places in there as well for poets and writers and environmentalists and others who appreciate nature and quietude.
It is simple living.
There is a farm there that allows for self-sustaining by way of organic farming and other things that appeal to the rich folks who miss the days of the 1970s and want to do things good for the environment.
There are simple rooms to live in. A bed, a dresser, a seat, bookshelves, a desk a sink and a mirror. Each room is 8×8, just big enough, with a door and a window.
Tours through the facility are daily.
There are schools on the campus which allow for learning to take place. An eclectic college runs out of here, which has intense three week classes where people go to live and breathe whatever the subject is that they’re learning.
There are not only areas of worship that each of the religious groups build for themselves (as I would not build them, just lease the land to them), but also common areas.
A common meeting house.
A kinetic area for movement. Most kinetic activities are meditative in nature, involving walking in circles, but there are also some sports activities available for those who are included to that.
There are art studios, libraries, coffee shops, gift stores.
This is on about 30 acre lot. There are trees and forests there with pathways and benches to walk through.
There are entrance requirements for the community, including a psychological profiling, which weeds out most of the potential problems that are of the extreme nature.
There are guesthouses – many guest houses, for retreat purposes. People who are here for retreat not only have to pay for the privilege of vacationing here, but they also have to work. This is not a lazy retreat.
People who live on a full time basis also have tasks that are related to:
The upkeep of the property
The farming of plants and animals.
Whatever things related to the businesses that run on the property.
The work they do is some manual, and some related to the skills they possess.
This retreat of quietude has a name for itself as being a most especially wonderful place.
People come from all over the world to visit us.
All proceeds go towards the upkeep of the property, the buildings and the people living there, their education, quietude and the tourist industry within.
