Regenerative Community Development Mastermind: (see page for next date)
Online (worldwide): (paused until further notice)
UPDATE: There is potential forecasted rain for this Saturday, so we are RESCHEDULING Gathering of the Tribes to the following Saturday, January 27th – so we can enjoy our time together around the fire without concern of getting rained on. I’m looking forward to seeing many of you on the 27th!
San Diego friends, this is an invitation for those who are feeling inspired to cultivate a life more connected to nature, spirit and community. This is a calling for those who are ready to gather around the fire in honor and celebration of the beauty and sacredness of all life.
Gathering of the Tribes is an opportunity for you to come together with like-minded people to cultivate deep connection and build community. Some of our key interests as a group are land stewardship, environmental sustainability, regeneration, resilience, social justice, permaculture, natural building, organic gardening/farming, bee keeping, holistic health, healing, life as ceremony, plant allies, spiritual connection, meditation, prayer, music, yoga, dance, life guided by purpose, seva/service, whole systems design, intentional community and ecovillage development.
If you would like to get a feel for the intentions of the gathering you can read our manifesto here. We gather in person on the 3rd Saturday of the month (unless otherwise scheduled).
Location & Date:
We typically gather on the 3rd Saturday of the month and rotate locations between Living Joy Homestead and Faye Park. Please see the Telegram or Facebook groups below for updated schedules and location.
Living Joy Homestead
2045 69th Street
Lemon Grove, CA 91945
Living Joy PARKING: There is quite a bit of street parking in front of the property. Please just be respectful of neighbors.
3459 Fairview Dr
Vista, CA 92084
Faye Park PARKING: The main driveway gate will be closed at the SW corner where the address number is visible, so continue on Fairview Dr. by following the yellow right arrow sign that you’ll see as you come up the hill. This right turn will take you down a hill and on your left you will see an open field. Park like the cars are configured on the map, along the road-side only. Our neighbors were very clear they did not want anyone romping around in their field!
Extra parking can be parallel to the park along the road as marked above.
The entrance to a forest will be tucked in our far NW corner of the property, marked by a Faye Park Sign pictured next. Follow this trail that goes along the south side of the fence line and it will guide you right where you need to go, to the East side of the main home.

These gatherings are family friendly and substance free (no drugs or alcohol please). We will be getting naturally high on connection with nature, spirit and community.
Make sure to bring a blanket, cushion or chair to sit on because we will be outside. You may also want to bring a hat or some shade, as well as layers if it gets colder in the evening. You are also invited to bring instruments… kindness… and an open heart.
With our focus on environmental sustainability we want to minimize our use of single use disposables for the potluck. Please bring your own water, cup, cutlery and plate/bowl. Think radical self reliance… while coming together with community to share. Please bring something healthy and tasty to share for the potluck… please also be mindful to hopefully not have a lot of single use disposables in what you bring for the potluck as well.
The gathering will be in the backyard. There is ample street parking in front of the house, park and welcome yourself into the property to find us. You are welcome to arrive and go whenever you’d like… yet if possible we’d LOVE to have you there with us for the WHOLE gathering!
If you attend this event you agree to accept responsibility and liability for your own wellbeing and safety.
