social musical sustainable living project

We the living group Contact & muziek want to (let somebody) build a round building from straw, with other natural products like hemp, cork and bamboo. For that we are looking for a green location, preferably in Utrecht or close to Utrecht. When somebody has an idea we like to hear it.

We want to share our way of living and working together on consciousness, sustainability, communication, meditation, meditatively singing and our change to living on light, with more people. Through attention for each other, openness, sharing (life) experiences and knowledge, there comes space for spontaneity, creativity, new ideas and wishes. People can visit us and stay for a while. more (2 pages in pdf)

The foundation is established with the

In a group advancing contact, communication and cooperation, with help of music, by:
