Gay Men's Intentional Community - Seeking Land

Hello everyone!
   
    I'm a serious-minded spiritual masculine gay man into art & design, fringe studies, and sustainable living. I'm interested in everything so I self-educate and experiment. I have a lot of hand skills and my ideal would be to form a Medieval-style futurist craft village of likeminded men with artisan skills to support the community by its own products. Aside form living off the grid and producing our own food, we would have income form a range of metal, wood, clay, leather, textile, culinary and other products. It isn't complicated, it's all been done before - we just need a good piece of land with ample acreage and a few solid souls who are willing to dig in and make it authentic.
    Personally I'm a northerner and not into humidity and heat. Greenhouses can extend the growing season - I like four-season weather, and elevation changes, and lots of trees and clean running streams. I am not into being overly PC and making up new terms for everything. I am deeply spiritual, very, very deeply spiritual, but this does not mean being a softy - on the contrary, when one undergoes the processes of ascension, it is hard-winning through toughness and vigilance that one succeeds. I'm interested in talking to other deep seekers who know the truth. Esotericists and warriors who understand pain and labor, and have figured out how to make things easy. Alchemists & magicians who share the need to work with the earth, and the spirits, and the elementals. Shamen who know how to execute effective ritual and have gone beyond the boundaries of hipsterism & commercial consciousness. Individuals who see a future a few hundred years form now. I see a future where successful intentional communities strike up independent trade with one-another and subvert the oligarchical economy. Bring back the trade guilds!
    I could write a book here, but choosing to keep it short and hope to meet some other wild men to ramble on with.

Thanks everyone!

Hi Danny, we have land, but unfortunately we're in the tropics, so it doesn't fit what you're looking for. I hope you will find land and good companions to setup for the long term future.

If there are other guys reading this topic who are looking for a gay community, but don't recognize themselves in your description, maybe we have what they want.

Danny, looks like you have a vision. Do you have a timeline to work by or are you just winging it? It does sound interesting. Maybe if you gave a preference to location to spark interest?

Hey,
 Cool post.
I live near the Catskills. I am a big time reader of permaculture stuff and I am interested in living in nature with a small community. It would be cool to talk with you.

How is your search coming?

Gay here, 46. Educated, masculine, self-sufficient, spiritually attentive man here.
Be well and all the best.
