I am officially retired after a 40+ years' career as a teacher, lecturer and researcher in Higher Education.
I am experienced at engaging people in their learning and I know the importance of ‘right relations’ and the potency and fun of effective groups. I've also observed the pain and confusion which can be caused by unclear or inauthentic communication. This led me to train as a mediator.
For many years I have longed to live in community whilst also retaining my own privacy behind my front door. In Kings Langley we tried to achieve this some years ago when a local farm came up for sale and the community raised £2m to buy it. Unfortunately we were outbid and all the money was returned to those who contributed.
I have a strong sense that NOW is the time to have another go! So, here is my vision, shared by members of the local community and friends from further afield. As it develops and takes shape I shall update information.
Our vision as an intentional community is to live more sustainably in the full sense, treading as lightly as we can upon the planet, both individually and as a group. Serving something greater than our own needs, we aim to create an environment that is nourishing, diverse and economically sustainable whilst deepening our spiritual awareness in everyday life and work.
