  • Our Mission

    Toward a natural and voluntary world

     

    The Center for Natural Living is a 501(c)(3 ) public charity whose mission is to demonstrate the value of voluntary cooperation and natural living in the areas of sustainability, community development, and health by creating educational media, workshops, and seminars.

     

    In order to fulfill our mission, we are working with leaders and innovators in the space of holistic health, permaculture, and sustainable design to help us make our vision a reality. Our focus areas include the Sustainable and Autonomous Communities Initiative (SACI), Sovereign Living, and Amagi Living.

     

    We invite you to take part in our mission to create a more voluntary and natural world.
     

  • Focus Areas

    Sustainable and Autonomous Communities Initiative

    (SACI) is a project of the Center for Natural Living which aims to further the proliferation of sustainable and autonomous communities.

     

    The Center for Natural Living will travel to communities in an effort to highlight and share diverse methods for regenerative land stewardship and community participation.

     

    Tentative destinations in 2019 include: Texas, Colorado, Missouri, Ohio, New York, New Hampshire, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee. Be sure to tune in for video content and blog posts published to experience the inspirational communities visited, first hand!

    SACI will accomplish this by engaging in the following three activities:

    1. Studying past and existing sustainable and/or autonomous communities
    2. Educating the public about the value of sustainable and autonomous communities
    3. Building and helping others to build sustainable and autonomous communities

    Of the many values a community of people can adhere to, we believe sustainability and autonomy to be of the utmost importance.

     

    What is a sustainable community??

    Sustainable communities are associations of like-minded individuals and families living cooperatively in the same general geographic area who are self-sufficient and live in a manner in balance with the ecosystems that surround them.

     

    What does it mean for a community to be autonomous?

    Autonomous communities are groups of individuals and families that are able to practice self-determination and are not subjected to non-consensual authorities of any kind.

     

    Our long-term goal is clear – a sustainable world full of autonomous communities living in peaceful co-existence.

    Sovereign Living - The Reality Show

    The Center for Natural Living is currently working to produce new episodes of Sovereign Living the Reality Show, a reality-based educational program that follows communities in their quest to become self-sufficient and lead a voluntary and natural life.

     

    The ongoing series is a project of The Center for Natural Living 501(c)(3) which was initially produced by Karmakaze Productions. The purpose of the show is to educate, entertain, and inspire people to take responsibility for their lives, their families, and their communities.

     

    The Center for Natural Living is currently raising funds to create fresh content from individuals across the globe who live a sovereign lifestyle. This means providing their own food, water, energy and community needs. We invite you to support our initiative to share the stories from sustainable and autonomous communities across the world who are leading by example in the areas of sustainability, health, and community!
