Help us to create a community that:
  • Is ecologically sustainable,
  • Economically viable,
  • Satisfies its members needs,
  • Doesn’t exploit or contaminate,
  • Is self-sufficient in the long-term,
  • Has close ties with neighboring communities for mutual benefit, and
  • Leads to the strengthening of local economies based on local production and consumption.

  • We’re creating a model system that can be scaled and adapted throughout the world - an ecological initiative that demonstrates solutions for prospering sustainably on our planet.

    Why do this?  Our planet is talking to us!
  • If we keep consuming and contaminating at current levels, soon our planet won’t be able to sustain human life.
  • It’s not realistic to think that constant growth can exist on a finite planet.
  • It’s crazy to believe that we are above all other life forms and we can control them and even nature itself.

  • The great deception of modern times
    Is that we must act competitively, and that growth, expansion and accumulation are good. These beliefs don’t serve us, the majority, but only the few rich and powerful.

    We must unmask the deception!
  • Only through cooperation, working with nature and her laws, can we live abundantly on our finite planet.
  • We need to set aside the scarcity mentality that makes us hoard and compete, and learn from nature to live with her cycles, with less stress and more peace.
  • We have to limit growth and consumption, care for the earth and care for people. If we do this, we can truly prosper.

  • Help make a change!
    Let’s work together for sustainability. The most important and urgent jobs to be done are: building soil, restoring ecosystems & learning to live in community starting locally. If supporting the transition to a sustainable world is your first priority, you will love this & we are looking for you. Please check out our website and then reach out to us.  http://8thLifePanama.org

    Hola Vecina. My name is Ocean. I am in Santa Fe, Veraguas. Have been seeing your "8th life" stuff around the web. Thought I'd reach out. I have an ongoing project here, sort of all encompassing.
    Blessings,
    Ocean🍃

    That is a really big piece of pie for such a tiny ad:
