[before_listing images= youtube=null] Myself and my friend David have met and are seeking a group of like minded people to move back to nature possibly in Italy or Spain and build a community based on the people, land and nature.

The main difficulty with living in today’s society is that for many of us it doesn’t feel natural on any level. Everything feels separate from us. Slowly an alternative culture has developed away from this but this in itself is fragmented by its own idealism and is rife with moralist/altruistic justifications for what ends up being very subjective, fear-based motivations for change.
There is however a growing number of people who are interested in moving towards a transition back to nature, for no other reason than that it feels “good” and it’s what they like. Transition culture is not something we can cherry-pick to our personal liking but is something that occurs through us, more like a free-fall into a way of being that “I” have no control over but yet feels deeply connecting and “right”. It isn’t something that can be manufactured but occurs when almost everything else has fallen away. This project originates from a dying away of the ideal of “individualism”, which is occurring through us all now.
The project expressed here is the beginning of a transition movement which has no leader or centre or ideology to be upheld, but is uncompromisingly focused in the observation and recognition of nature and natural processes as the followed direction. There is no “choice” invovled in this process, it simply that which instictively feels natural that is followed. This is not compartmentalized to any one aspect of life because that is not natural. As such for those involved “back-to-nature” it is the magnetic pull that is all-encompassing, involving the whole of human life from finding food and shelter to connecting to other humans, every nuance being left to nature’s way.
This page is a blog-like progression of events of how we have decided to find some land and create a natural-farming community and will illustrate how this community develops and changes. It is also an open invitation to those who would like to be within this at whatever stage, from here at its at pre-seed stage or at any point thereafter, as we follow this simple instinctive-intuitive response to our current lives.
Below are articles, books and materials which are essential in their entirety to illustrate the way we have been changed and opened-up to realize the true nature of ourselves behind the mask. I would suggest that you choose some of these to read in order to see whether you are really interested in what we are doing. Then, if you feel drawn to this, do contact me as I would very much like to hear your comments and would also be glad of your like-mind! Please contact me via this page.
Through something unknown we meet in kinship.

    Hi Alice,

    I’m familiar with Davids work and am keen to hear how you are doing currently.

    I’m looking for an off grid community, space I can be part of. I’m currently making music in London. Space is necessary :) If you still are running this project (as in responding to the advert) please drop me a message/ post a response in the comments so we can correspond.

    With warmth
    George

    Hi Alice,
    I’m in America and have really been looking to move to Italy and then in putting my ideal lifestyle together with my desire to be in Italy, found your post on this off the grid site. I am all about communing with humans through nature. I am an organic edible garden designer and am using a food forest approach to my designs, also known as Mediterranean Food Forests. Needless to say, it’s based on how nature would do it. I hope to hear back from you so we can talk. I’d love to see if this is the project that I see myself involved with from the growing of it.

    I’m sorry, but in my opinion anything ‘spiritual’ is not in any sense working with nature. In fact it’s the exact opposite. It’s putting a human interpretation on what YOU think nature should be. Nature is not in any way ‘spiritual’. That’s an entirely human condition, and a big part of the reason why we’ve got to where we are now!!
