Community Resource Guides

Online Communities Directory - Part of the Intentional Communities website, a project of the Fellowship for Intentional Community (FIC) (in partnership with other organizations). Intentional Communities can update their listings online so you get the most up to date information possible. If you are looking for an intentional community, ecovillage, cohousing, commune, co-op, or other cooperative living arrangement, browse through their alphabetic list or search their database. You can filter your search on many key characteristics of each community such as location, size, etc. This website is funded completely by donations plus volunteer labor. If you find this site useful we encourage you to donate to the Communities Directory Fund. The FIC also sells printed Communities Directory.

GaiaYoga Gardens Intentional Community - E-mail: aloha@gaiayoga.org. We have a wonderful piece of property on the east side of the Big Island of Hawaii (in Kapoho, near the town of Pahoa). It's 17+ acres of forested land, with a very strong Native-Hawaiian feeling. There are a number of communities, organic farms, and cooperative homesteads in this area. As a learning center, we see GaiaYoga Gardens as a place where adults and children can learn about holistic and sustainable living &emdash; through classes, workshops, retreats, internships, work-learning exchanges, and especially through experiencing our lifestyle first-hand. We currently offer instruction in sustainable homesteading (permaculture, off-grid technology, bio-fuels, etc.), Nonviolent Communication, hatha yoga, natural diet (including maximizing raw-foods in one's diet), Tantra, spirituality, and cooperative living.

Pangaia - Situated on the eastern edge of the volcanic rift zone of Hawaii, this is an extremely fertile area, blessed with equal parts showers and sun. We envision unity between earth mother Gaia and ourselves. We seek a full and complete expression of our being through work, art, play and our relationships with each other. One of the most fundamental goals at Pangaia is to move toward sustainability and harmony with our environment. Through this process, we are discovering ourselves and our nature - cultivating an intimate bond between soil, plant, animal, and human, and crafting a landscape of harmonious resonance. Inspired by those goals, we are a mainly vegan, raw-food community and living active permaculture. We welcome guests, visitors, interns, work-traders, friends, and potential long-term residents who are sincerely interested.
