Costa Rica
by ENERGYWORKER on OCTOBER 25, 2011 - 5 Comments in post

Hello All!

So, I have always liked the idea of living off the grid. I guess most of us on this site have a similar feeling; the western world really hasn`t lived up to all its promises.

I want to buy a large piece of property in Costa Rica, and turn it into a sanctuary of sorts for people who are tired of their daily hum-drum lives. I would officially call it an adventure tourism destination, connecting tourists with locals who offer services such as skydiving, surfing, rock climbing, horse back riding, but I would work to introduce people to alternate living also. I would want to offer yoga classes, organic farming, healthy cooking classes, reiki, and various types of energy work. I am a certified life coach and energy worker. I am living in Halifax, Canada right now, but I am looking for like-minded people to help make my dream a reality. Getting the funding for the land and the start-up is my primary goal right now. Feel free to contact me at matteosoule@gmail.com

I ve been looking into offgrid life for a while now, and I am thinking about making the move soon. I am looking to make the move with other people, and im very open to the location and variables. I would like to move to an off grid community and have other around. I love many different genres of music, including dubstep, rap(mostly underground, trance, techno, metal……I enjoy playing guitar, drums, drawing,tattooing, and doing “research with” hallucinogens.I guess you could call me an atheist as I dont believe in any orginized religions , or god, as 1 being. I do enjoy stuying buddhism tho. contact: facebook.com/kardo.korindt, odrak024@yahoo.com

Advice on how to get started?
by TOPAZETA on OCTOBER 24, 2011 - 2 Comments in post

I’m 27 years old and live in London. I moved here 10 years ago from a small coastal town in South Africa to save enough money to buy land in either the UK or South America and start a small community – since my early teens this was always the plan. I’ve read tons of books on self sufficient living, grow my own food and have over the years found ways to live only on the basics but I’m not sure where to go from here.

So why off grid? I’m a sensitive person and value love and sharing above all else but have for a while tried to fake apathy and buy into all the crap that has only made me ill. Like Krishamurti said ‘we have to be sick to be well-adjusted’ but I can no longer make this compromise and hope to meet others who feel the same way. I’d like to remove myself completely, live as simply as possible and one day start a small animal sanctuary on the land. I am an animal activist and vegan but like humans too ;)

Thanks for reading,
Lissy

Names Brian, I am a 23 year old light skin dominican fella that lives in the suburbs of the North-east (Tri-state) looking to live off the grid within the next 2 years..i have 2 semesters left of college, I might as well finish. But Im sick of this society and how the economy runs everything. So much Greed, War, and Hate. I believe that this world is in for a huge change very soon and I just want to be ready. I need to get in contact with the right people who can help get me started and lead me in the right direction towards pursuing this goal. Im all about peace love and fairness. Real easy to get along with and i’m looking to take the next step. I eat very little amount of meat, id rather be a vegetarian love rice n beans and all veggies really..and would like live in a community that grows their own food and has a fresh water source. very important. Im just about fed up with the unnecessary pressures from our society. Need to be in touch with nature and communal living . Thanks for reading this and for future support.

Couple for a Community
by FORGETT_THEMOON on OCTOBER 10, 2011 - 2 Comments in post

We are a couple, 19 and 22 years. He has gardening and construction experience, she less knowledgable but has the passion to learn and return to the earth. A live and let live attitude, non-judgemental, very peaceful. Looking to feed and heal the soul and contribute to a community of “our own”, love and help thy neighbor, unlike the city where you don’t tolerate or know them. Respectful of privacy while maintaining interaction. Eager to learn and share knowledge, skills, experience. We have both lived off-grid in our teenage years and know in our hearts it’s where we belong. One Love, breathe easy. The_road_not_Traveled@yahoo.com
