Objectives

  • Offer a sensuous hothouse for artists and healers working to magnify their powers
  • Develop a sensually electric showcase for organic values and green ideas
  • Recruit and empower young talent irrespective of sex, race, class or caste
  • Nurture new performance forms and therapies for global propagation
  • Expose the archaic links between wonder, vitality and environmental health.

Specifically we're spending the next couple years building an interlocking performance/mind-body/ecology complex comprising:

- a circus arts school, performance venue, and roving AV studio;
- a healing center based on energy medicine, mind/body work & traditional Asian lore;
- a lovely, high-profile demo/research site for permaculture principles, medicinal plant gardening, and innovative green tech.

Some will quickly intuit the organic links between these initiatives and ye are the audience we seek here and hope to ultimately involve.
