We are a working community where people live and work at the retreat center. The community aspect is mainly over the summer (retreating season) and it is possible to stay over winter as well, but it is not permanent housing.
The goal is to be autistic -run and staffed. It’s about full inclusion of disabled people, not just as helpers, but as people who actually run it. Because of this, the way we set up rules and divide out tasks has to take account of accommodations needed by everyone.
There is currently one building – the staff house, which for now doubles as the space for small guest groups, Eventually there will be more guest buildings for much larger retreats.
So far we’ve had a few longer term people (months at a time) and many people coming for 2 week work retreats. Our next steps are mainly to get people together to meet and work together and see how that inspires the steps after that.
