We are gathering a community of like minded people to take on guardianship of a small farm in Co Femanagh, Northern Ireland. We are inviting those interested to participate in sociocratic circles of activity including – Land Circle, Wealth and Abundance Circle, Therapies and Healing Circle, People Circle. The community will include a Living in Circle on site supported by the others living locally and at a distance.
The farm is a magical place with 25 acres of land that hasn’t been under intensive agriculture. It has a beautiful river and an ancient sacred site which was once a druid ceremonial place and originally a neolithic enclosure. The name Lisdean means Sacred Enclosure. We are part of a layered community that has been growing around Common Ground – this includes local people involved in services and events and others who support our work at a provincial, national and international level. Some of the farm buildings and an old country shop building have planning permission for an ecotherapy, education and retreat centre.
We are looking for people to get involved in a variety of ways. Our main priority in 2023 is to secure ‘ownership’ to manifest the full potential of this project. The cooperative structure we are using is Community Benefit Society.
Our vision is a vibrant and earth-rooted community of all beings, embodied in healing, creativity and connection to each other, the land, and the sacred circle of life.
Our mission is to tend to the land and community in a holistic, connected, and regenerative way; whilst honouring the sacredness of all life, nurturing collective healing, and celebrating the diversity of nature and humanity.
