[before_listing id=0 images= youtube=null] We are seeking others of like-mind to create an off-the-grid spiritual community in the Scottish Highlands. We don’t at the moment have any land in mind, although we are seeking a certain type of land and in a certain area.

We don’t want to exclude people purely on the basis of how much money they do, or don’t have, but realistically this won’t be possible, so at this early stage we think that each member would have to contribute approx. £5,000. This fee will be for helping to purchase the cost of the land and all associated fees etc.

The community will be a purely spiritual (not religious) and vegetarian in nature. The long term vision for the community will be for a place of healing, safety and learning.

We envision that we would have a population of about 50 or more people, consisting of men, women and children of various ages and ethnic origins etc.

If you are interested, or you know someone who maybe, then please drop me an email at: jamie@thejourneyofmastery.com or visit my blog: www.thejourneyofmastery.com

    You might find that if you want to live wild and be off grid then you can do it a lot cheaper somewhere where people normally live like that such rural areas of Romania, Bulgaria and Greece. It is also a lot warmer (most of the year anyway), and there is more nature so more plants, more animals etc and the locals have the knowhow. You could do a lot more with 5K outside the UK.

    Hi there,

    I have a family of 4 and we’re also looking into living off the grid in some type of small community, did this project ever take off?

I am also Interested in joining your plans and maybe becoming one of the team. My boyfriend is of the same feelingsand would love to come on board. Pls e-mail me back with some further information and requirements for joining your team/eco family.

    I already (nearly) live off the grid not 40 miles from Glasgow here on the Isle of Bute. I generate my own electricity, grow my own veg, keep chooks & trap rabbit (best lean meat you can eat). I cook & heat on a wood burning stove which also constant hot water & central heating.Own well on my small bit of land. Fish all year round. Only drawback is the dreaded council tax which I am working on how not to pay it legally. Its doable but you need money to start with mostly.

  11. Glen

    I’d be interested, however all I have is knowledge, Painting Skills and computing…however I’m not a lazy person I was brought up in Rhodesia…we don’t waste things and we make do with what we have and improvise and work hard….. I have 2 dependants. Let me know if you ever get this community off the ground as I would like to contribute…

  12. Jahmez

    Very Interested but it appears no one is here anymore … don’t see any answers/responses …..

    Hello people

    There are lots of people with skills to offer I myself am a carpenter but unfortunately land in the UK is not cheap if you want in someone has to provide the money and most off griders dont have it. Tiny houses are a good off grid living arrangement and the can be parked in a car park this may be the only way.

    I have knowledge and experience in cooking and growing vegetables and hunting with is something I think you should reconsider vegetables should be our core diet but is is unnatural to only eat veg and is just another form of limiting our freedom of choice. We shouldn’t however take in excess or eat threatened animals things like deer however with are culled in Scotland anyway and the keeping of chickens for eggs isn’t harmful. Lions hunt wildebeest humans have always eaten meat it’s natural. What is harmful is relying on meat or over using it. That’s not to say someone can’t be a vegetarian but I think this society should have as few boundaries as possible otherwise we risk continuing the way of life we seek to remove ourselves from.

  22. Joe blackledge

    I would be willing to front the 5k it’s a small price to pay for a shot at actually living life for yourself instead if for someone else. I have long felt the need to free myself of the stresses of modern society that we have been indoctrinated into believing in. What really matters is feeling fulfilled and enjoying life to the full, not working 50 hours a week to pay tax to a government I hate and and feed evil corporations with what money I have left. I live in the northwest of England and could get the money together pretty quick if this was going somewhere. Please get back to me if this is serious. Cheers.

  23. Wilson

    I don’t have £5k but I have knowledge, I am interested in meeting people who want to go off the grid. I already have thoughts about how I will do this in a money free way as i’m sure others do.

  24. Tyler

    Well let me know how living in the highlands without eating meat works for you.
