Join Me in the Land of Magic & Healing

On October 23, 2014

I’ve been in Asheville, NC for all of 10 days and I already feel at home.  Before I got here a friend told me “it’s a soft place to land” and she couldn’t have been more right.  Before my departure I was wracked with nerves.  The smallest sentiment would send me into a stream of tears.  I was terrified of leaving New York, but even more terrified of staying.  

Now that I’m here and (semi)settled I’m already starting to see all the benefits of changing my surroundings.  I feel more focused, more empowered, more brave.  I’m doing things that are out of character, taking on healthier routines and effortlessly opening my heart to new people and ideas.

I’m experiencing all this amazing healing, and all the while I keep thinking “how can I offer this to my peeps?!”  I think I figured out one way…

Where I live and work we have a 4 bedroom guesthouse.  I had a conversation with my co-workers and instead of renting rooms by the night, we want to invite like-minded people (like you!) to move in for a month at a clip this winter so you can dive deeper into your passion project or practice (whatever that might be) and be supported by a loving community that is also dedicated to personal growth and well-being.

All the details are below.  Does this seem like the thing you’ve been waiting for?  Maybe it’s time to take the leap.  After all, Asheville is a very soft place to land 🙂

This winter we are taking clues from nature and we are slowing down, moving our energy inward, and focusing on our health, our passions, and big projects for the future. We’re making careful plans to create fruitful, change-making, educational programs in the seasons ahead and want to invite like-minded people to share in this time of inward care and big vision cultivation.

We are renting rooms by the month at Ashevillage Sanctuary during January, February and March.  Our naturally light-filled, wood-heated guest house has four beautiful, earthen-finished rooms and is a peaceful retreat space. We’re on one acre of edible and medicinal permaculture gardens and woods, and just minutes from the progressive downtown of Asheville, NC.   In all directions, we are surrounded by mountains with walking trails a block away.

If you (or your best buddies) are interested in focusing on personal growth, and living in a conscious, healthy community for a month, send us an email at sanctuary@ashevillage.org.

We’d love to know when you want to come, and we want to know more about you! In the email please tell us (1) what you’d like to see come to fruition this winter, (2) your passions, and (3) which month you’d like to stay.

PETS > We are sometimes open to 4-legged friends. Decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis.

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT US > Our Ashevillage crew has developed this one-acre site into a demonstration of integrated ecological (and social) systems. We believe in creating the world we want to live in by putting our beliefs into practice in our own backyard. We grow food and medicine, capture and use rainwater, and show others how to do the same. Some of our crew live on site, with others coming during the day to work on program development or site projects.

*Note: While guest rooms are private, you will likely meet our team during your stay here and common spaces are used by all.

If you’d like more details, please ask and we’ll be happy to share more.  email: Sanctuary@ashevillage.org
