We're a family of four in Southeast Alaska, seeking other families to combine efforts with; to be cultivating friendships that are more integrated into our daily lives. We want to be working with with others to meet and exceed our basic needs in a way that feels much more meaningful. We want to be together with other people; hunting, gathering, growing, processing, and even cooking food, as well as facilitating the healthy development of the bright young minds in our midst.  There must be people out there who are more inspired by the opportunities inherent in this type of lifestyle then they are afraid of the challenges; which come from the transition from me to we, something that has got to happen soon in our society and in our communities. We have finally started practicing meditation as a family because we see that the skills of mindfull awareness are crucial to our ability to ride out the storms that seem to be getting even more extreme. It would be amazing to find others who want to practice mindfulness with us. Our sons are 18 and 9 and are both nature loving, very social guys.     We have built our home in a place that we love. We love the subsistence lifestyle of gathering food from the wild. From the waters, we gather eulachon and herring in the spring and salmon later in the year, and shrimp and crab and halibut and trout.From the land, we gather mushrooms, berries, and blacktail deer. We also love growing food. Our garden has a lot of room to expand with another big hugel culture bed in the making this fall. There is also a neglected community garden situation on the adjoining property that curves around Mud Bay on the Chilkat Peninsula about 7 miles from Haines. We have built our little house on our 3 1/2 acres of land and we are in the process of building a guesthouse that we could offer a family who is interested in combining efforts in this way, and if more families wanted to join us, we can figure out accommodation. It would be great to have our friends come here, but we are open to going somewhere else if we were to find families we resonate with in a place that is at least somewhat wild. If any of this sounds interesting to you, then contact us. We are anxiously awaiting your email.     aaronmykl@yahoo.ca
