Intention and Community
In many ways, Brett reminds me somehow of Max Yasgur, who offered his farmland to host the world-famous Woodstock Festival. This reminiscence becomes even more apparent when you look at his vision for his property. His general idea is to open up his land for a larger community of like-minded people.
This intentional community should consist of individuals or groups that will commit to sticking together as a tribe or micro village society to work together in the common purpose to become as self-sustainable and independent from the System as possible. Therefore, Brett likes to attract young, energetic people with a sense of unity, synergy, and cooperation.
All Brett asks for is some enthusiasm and expertise in providing the basic needs like water, gardening, electricity, building, mechanics, security, and social skills to make a project like this possible. Money and resources are also vital ingredients to enable a community to thrive.
Nevertheless, the whole package of personal integrity, skill, and monetary resources needs to be considered in harmony with the overall endeavor. Some people might possess plenty of resources while others bring more abilities to the table, but it all needs to be in a natural balance to be successful.
Anyhow, Brett’s Ark is perfect for 20-30 people living together in pristine nature. The next surf break in Dominical is just 40min away with a 4×4 vehicle. There you can also buy groceries and fuel up the car. Still, back at the property, you feel like in the middle of nowhere. See some photos to get an impression.
