“…the care of the earth is our most ancient and most worthy and, after all, our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it, and to foster its renewal, is our only legitimate hope.” – Wendell Berry
We crave the simple life in harmony with nature, but we are trapped in the modern world. Our societies have become so fragmented that we have lost our connection to the earth and each other.
The culture of cities has replaced nature with concrete, steel and asphalt. Technology, television, and transhumanism have pulled us away from our spiritual center. Artificial Intelligence has become God 2.0 for the masses. The relationship of humans and nature has developed in a way that humans have become less dependent upon nature directly, yet indirectly our dependence grows exponentially. We not only dwell in nature; we transform it.
Permaculture is a conscious design that allows for the integration of agriculture, water, animals, housing, education, small businesses, waste recycling and landscaping in a natural environment. Although the word is trendy, the concept has been practiced for over 100,000 years by ancient societies and a key component of their spirituality.
Harmonia was founded as a model of sustainable living located in Cardenas, Nicaragua, with 263 acres lush jungle, forest, waterfalls, pasture, gardens, and beach overlooking the two volcanoes that make up Ometepe Island and the stunning panorama of Volcan Orosi nestled along the Continental Divide. It is a unique form of entrepreneurial community, with agriculture and coffee roasting profit centers to fund operational expenses and significant personal living costs of residents. The profit centers are independent, not maintained by residents unless they chose to participate. It is a community of diverse thought, skills, philosophies and spiritual beliefs
We value personal freedom and creativity while working together as a community. We believe in a life that is well balanced so workshops, talks, exercises, events, celebrations, and adventures are all part of the design.
