About this listing
The yurt is located at the Sanctuary, a beautiful 40 acre community land trust with meadows, forests and trails, beaver ponds, a community garden and small farm. It is one of the greenest (sustainable, carbon-neutral) places to stay, close to many local attractions, family- and pet-friendly, with a deeply peaceful ambiance. The Sanctuary non-profit is located on the land trust and offers educational resources for personal transformation, community development and environmental restoration.
The Sanctuary is a beautiful place made possible by a beautiful idea: a piece of land which cannot be owned, for profit or destruction, but is held "in trust" by a community non-profit organization, The Sanctuary at Shepardfields. This is sacred land, being developed as a blessed community possession, using permacultural, nonviolent, ecologically-regenerative practices and technologies to generate ecological and social system coherence, i.e. Love. Harmony is the goal and the means. The harmony of this beautiful space is immediately felt, and by being here you become a part of this process of unfolding wholeness.
Guests are invited to explore the Sanctuary's 40 acre land trust. The Sanctuary house is available to use the indoor bathroom, and to shower in the morning. Breakfast is also in the house, between 9 and 11, with some flexibility via text/call.
