Live in an Essene Community in Central Texas. For over a decade we worked to build a prototype Suburban Homestead Organic (GMO free) Food Forest in Downtown Las Vegas (in the Mohave Desert) using Veganic Gardening and Permaculture Principles. We worked to grow all of the plants traditionally found in the Holy Land and Garden of Eden (Pistachios, Figs, Dates, Pomegranates, Olives, Citrus, Jujubes, Carob, Mulberry and much more). On Winter Solstice of 2012 (12-21-12) we launched our WholeWAY Home concept. For almost ten years, we hosted kindred spirits from all over Planet Earth. In addition, we traveled and taught about Essene Biogenic Living, Raw Food Vegetarianism, benefits of Raw Cacao, Fermentation, How to Kiss Addiction Goodbye, and Spiritual Evolution.
Now we are redefining The Way of our Sanctuary. We have traveled and been inspired by Rabbi Dr. Gabriel Cousens at Tree of Life, Brother Day at the Essene Monastery in Oregon, the Enchanted Garden in San Diego, along with the writings of Edmond Bordeaux Székely, and many communal spaces to experience what works best. With many lessons learned, we are coming out of the Desert and into the Promised Land of Texas. We have acquired five acres of land one hour West of Austin. The area is known as the Texas Wine Trail, between the quaint and historically significant towns of Johnson City and Fredericksburg. The land has potable well-water and traditional electricity, but there are ample opportunities for alternative energy: wind-solar-geothermal-hydro.
Sovereign Individuals who are attracted to the Essene Way are invited to live here. We plan to have many options available. We look forward to meeting you!
