Rubha Phoil looks deliciously green in the spring sun

Rubha Phoil is a real paradise on the Isle of Skye. It is a haven for wildlife and people with an abundance of opportunities to live a nature-connected permaculture life. We are working on a permaculture design to increase abundance we want to share this with other people. Are you interested in helping, creating and sharing this abundance?

The intention is to create a warm community where people live, love and create together. With an overal motivation to embark on journey to create a safe container in which we can grow a new culture in which we and our children can grow to fully embody the 8 attributes of connection:

I’m sure this raises a lot of questions. In short it means that together we become village builders and go on a journey together, with the goal that we will create our culture in our own community, together. A community with the goal to help everyone find their 8 gifts of nature:
Quiet mind, Inner happiness, Vitality, A commitment to paying it forward, Empathy and respect for nature, Being truly helpful, Fully alive, Love and forgiveness.

If this raises questions, please don’t hesitate to ask them.

Good to know:
Members of the community will have a say in the management of Rubha Phoil, which includes possibilities to make a humble living. Either by getting a job on the land, or by developing your own ethically sound business: Organising nature activities, selling crafts, growing and selling food, running a shop, teaching workshops, running a wild nursery or forest school,…. The possibilities here are only limited by our imagination.

This community building and getting to know each other is likely to be a slow process. If you are not ready to join right now, but might be in the future, please do still fill in the form.
