Are you looking for a spiritually based community that is just beginning? One where you can have a say in its shape? Well Arcadia may be the place for you. Set on a beautiful island with many places to simply sit and enjoy, along with places to gather, Arcadia awaits.
The owners, Ava and Darren have built the environment lovingly over the last 4 years and are now inviting others to share the island with the aim of forming a community. Their vision for the community is equality and inclusion. That people of many faiths, and those with no particular faith can come together and share in a non judgmental way. "We may not share each other's beliefs but we can all learn something from each other." Says Ava, a doctoral student of community whose greatest wish is to see people come together and form a community based on acceptance and trust.
As a community Arcadia offers opportunities to participate in weekly groups and special events. Some of the weekly groups on offer or planned for the future include meditation, tarot, story telling, discussion, encounter, music and dance. New members are most welcome to suggest and facilitate their own groups. Ava and Darren see the community as a living, organic thing, so nothing is fixed in stone. Instead, the community changes according to what the majority of members want.
If you like to be in the thick of planning and nurturing new projects and communities, then this could be the place for you. We are looking for leaders who can help to shape the community, ambassadors who can greet and mentor new members as well as interact with other communities on our behalf. We need group facilitators, those who wish to run weekly events or just special events and moderators who can deal with the day-to-day problems that arise in an open space. Of course we are also looking for members who don’t have the time or inclination to commit to any form of responsible role but just want to come along and enjoy the company and environment when they have the time to do so.
So come along anytime to see what we are about or join us at our grand opening for some music, dance and fun. Doors open at 1pm. Bring along an open mind and your curiosity. Dress code – casual (it is a beach environment) – no nudity please.
