The Dry Gulch Ecovillage began in 2014 with the intent to grow a cooperative and ecological urban community. While many people have come and gone, a few have stayed, creating a partial income-sharing core-group. While our transient residents are less involved, we hope to eventually have all our rooms occupied by people who affirm their participation in the Dry Gulch Ecovillage. Our partial income-sharing results in a class-harmony cofamily, creating an urban community while planning two rural ecovillages, a community land trust and a land cooperative, providing options for living increasingly ecological lifestyles.
The Dry Gulch Ecovillage is home to an educational initiative called the School of Intentioneering, presenting and explaining the intentional communities movement of gifting and sharing cultures via print and soon also video media.
Other Dry Gulch initiatives include the Utopia Writer’s Guild for collaborative media productions, and Partnership Spirituality evolving patriarchal religions toward egalitarian religion, incorporating women’s spirituality by deifying Mary of Magdala the same way as was Jesus of Nazareth, by simply saying it is so, then for believers, so it is!
The School of Intentioneering affirms 2027 as a convergence year of two-millennia of the ministry of Jesus of Nazareth, and of two centuries since the invention of the term “socialism,” first printed in the Owenite journal “The London Cooperative Magazine” of 1827. 19th and 20th century Christian Socialism evolves in the 21st century into Partnership Spirituality, affirming class-harmony community as Jesus taught and as the Owenite communities practiced, opposed to the class-conflict of Marxist communism. Partnership Spirituality affirms the “co-family” of 3-to-9 unrelated adults with or without children, different from single-parent, nuclear, and extended families.
Dry Gulch initiatives support people in designing and enjoying the cooperative-ecological lifestyle of their choice.
