Imagine… waking up in a village of like minded friends... your senses flooded with the sights, scents and sounds of nature that surrounds… you pick your own food from the nearby bountiful garden… you take (and give) workshops on topics of interest right outside your home.
Most importantly, imagine creating a future YOU want to live in – and
one that makes us all self sufficient, while promoting individual
liberty and mindfulness.
THIS is the vision of The Conscious Agora.
This is the beginning of a worldwide network of aligned forward-thinking communities.
Be a pioneer and help us co-create a model that everyone can use to build the village of their dreams.
Below we will outline, in more detail, the vision and goals of The Conscious Agora, a few of our community members, the property we are considering, and what we are offering in exchange for your support!
What Is The Conscious Agora?
The Conscious Agora is an off-grid, self-sustaining ecovillage and Holistic Education Center created by a dedicated, diverse group of change makers.
Our mission is to advance individual, collective, and universal healing and liberation through our personal lifestyles, while supporting others in doing the same by offering permaculture courses, spiritual retreats, activist trainings, and musical gatherings presented by some of the most innovative minds in their fields.We are designing not only our own village but also a well-researched, replicable template for other dreamers and doers to use as a model. Our intention is for The Conscious Agora to be part of an extensive network of interconnected communities that foster a new paradigm for Earth and all its inhabitants.
With your help, we will bring this vision to life!
We have identified the property and future home of The Conscious Agora. Located in beautiful Michoacán, Mexico!
Michoacán is a mountainous region known for the culture, its vast bodies of water and rich soils. We fell in love with the wooded and open hills, the springs and fresh mountain water, the crisp air, the fruit trees already thriving on the property, the supportive neighbors, and the opportunity for growth! The land is surrounded by creeks, waterfalls, local sustainable communities, farmers, and great spots for rock climbing, hiking, biking, creating an enriching experience for adventurers.
Morelia is the nearest major city and the capital of
Michoacán with an international airport for easier
access to the property and surrounding attractions.
The Conscious Agora will be a space to grow food, harvest rainwater,
steward the land, and integrate alternative energy systems with the
aim to become independent from "the grid". Additionally, TCA
will be offering a wide range of in-person courses, workshops, and
retreats on the land.
Organically Grown Crops - Using the principles of permaculture, we will grow and sell organically grown fruits and vegetables, as well as handmade products. We want to teach you how to do the same!
Courses & Workshops - Between our community members, our neighbors, and our network of partners we have a wealth of knowledge to share! Including:
- Permaculture Design Certification
- Sovereignty tactics and classes
- Natural healing solutions
- Outdoor adventure activities
- Natural building
Meditation, Yoga, and spiritual retreats
Extra Ocular Vision
Primal skills training
Music theory and performance
- Music festivals
- Decentralized t echnology
- Modern alternative finance
MEET THE COMMUNITY
We are an international mix of healers, activists, helpers, and
solutionaries who came together to create the life we know is possible.
"The Conscious Agora has been my dream since 2015. I gave it the name in 2016 and since then have been searching for the right people to create this vision, and the network of communities we believe is necessary for a better world! I believe I finally have that with this founding family made up of talented, intelligent, creative, and conscious individuals. I have no doubt that we are prepared to do the hard (and fun!) work necessary to build a community that will be a model for others around the world. Truly, this is just the beginning!"
"Hola! I'm Miriam. My desire to live in harmony with all life has led me to get certified in permaculture, practice different healing modalities and organizing community events including group meditations and yoga classes. Acquiring these new skills fills me with even more confidence to follow one of my dearest dreams, to co-create a beautiful community and educational center in Mexico that will be a hub for healing and empowering people with the skills necessary to do the same.
Our decision to move to Mexico led us to Morelia, Michoacan. A
beautiful mountainous region known for the culture, its vast bodies
of water and rich soils. This is where we found the land and future
home of The Conscious Agora! Filled with hills, springs, mountain
water and fruit trees, we fell in love. We looked for beautiful
people who shared a similar vision and for the last 2 years we have
been building relationships with the people who are now our founding
family of The Conscious Agora."
"Hi, my name is Jess. Leading Sea kayak adventures on the west coast of Canada gave me the opportunity to share my passion for the wild and reconnecting with the natural world. Now I am excited to be part of this project to build true community that along with your help will live as an example of what is possible when we return to a holistic and symbiotic relationship with the earth and each other."
"During the last 10-12 years of my life I’ve often imagined myself being involved in a project like this. There are many established eco-village and intentional communities around the world that are doing amazing things in their efforts to reduce dependencies on the societal grid and reduce human inflicted damage to the Earth. What I find unique and especially appealing about The Conscious Agora is that, not only does the project aim to create an eco-friendly existence independent from the grid, we will be doing so in accordance with the fundamental principles of voluntarism. With an understanding that the human spirit has an innate desire to be free, we feel strongly that a community’s success and longevity is relative to how much it values individual autonomy. We also understand how important knowledge and skill sharing is with regard to positively effecting human and societal change. That’s why conducting and hosting workshops and educational events is a primary objective of ours; teaching others skills related to self healing, permaculture, and building conscious community while maintaining individual sovereignty is an essential aspect of creating a new and improved experience for humanity.
I’m super excited to be involved in building this and fulfilling such an integral part of my personal existence. I will be eternally grateful to all who help us reach our fundraising goals so we can bring this vision to life!"
What other members are saying..
"I'm excited about being in the TCA project and getting land soon! The core members of this project have been working together for a while now, coming up with principles and agreements, to make sure we are all aligned and cohesive. We have been reading and studying the book "Creating a Life Together: Practical Tools to Grow Ecovillages and Intentional Communities" by Diana Leafe Christian. I think working through this book will greatly help us achieve our goals and become a successful eco-village. We have also done some "Sociocracy" training, which we plan to use for decision making and conflict resolution. I look forward to TCA acquiring some land, so we can start putting our plans into action, building our infrascture, and getting to a point where we can serve the local community in Mexico, as well as provide workshops and events to the greater community of freedom loving people."
"I love the vision and direction we are heading with this new paradigm. Living in a natural setting, sharing our gifts with others and establishing our own freedom, food-forest villages...it gets me excited for the future! I have been searching for this community most of my adult life - people that can work hard, have fun and be aligned in the core aspects of life. My background tells me that I am here for this. Any form of contribution is important for creating the future we all want to live in. I hope you will help support the vision and join us!"
"Having previously lived in an ecovillage (and therefore having seen some of the issues that can arise), the thoughtful and conscientious vision and process of The Conscious Agora impressed me right away. I appreciate being part of a group of people with diverse skills and experiences who can still align around the things that matter most: being good stewards over the sovereignty of the earth, animals, and each other.
There are many collective challenges and fears happening right now
which is why it is more important than ever to create spaces that
offer healing and inspiration. I look forward to seeing The
Conscious Agora come to life as such as space for those who dream of
- and work towards - a peaceful and free world!"
