Gathering of the Tribes
Online (worldwide): (paused until further notice)
In Person: Typically the 3rd Saturday of the month (see link below)
Regenerative Community Development Mastermind: Third Thursdays
Aloha friends! Providing an update here. The online Zoom gatherings are paused right now until further notice. I am currently in the process of relocating (currently in San Diego… most likely to Montana for a few months… then considering moving to Colorado or New Mexico in the spring). Once I am grounded we can do the online Zoom gatherings again. Wishing you all a blessed and beautiful 2024 overflowing with love, laughter, joy, health and commUnity! ~ Joshua (1/4/24)
Imagine living in a community with kindred spirits that share a common vision and intention to live a life of beauty, health and harmony connected to nature.
How would it feel to co-create a community where it is part of your daily life to cook and eat delicious meals together, play music and dance around the fire, do yoga, meditate, pray, play and live in a conscious way?
Can you envision being part of a community where we grow organic food together, build our homes out of beautiful natural materials and raise our children together in a way that is intimately connected to the Earth? If this vision of commUnity sings to your heart and soul, we invite you to join us for Gathering of the Tribes!
This is an invitation for those who are ready 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. Many of us are tuning into “The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible” – and we are ready to find our tribes!
Gathering of the Tribes is an opportunity for you to come together with like-minded people to cultivate deep connection and build community (online & onland). 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.
There is a virtual component for us to connect all around the world, as well as an in person component to gather in our local communities where we live. If you would like to get a feel for the intentions of the gathering you can read our manifesto here.
If you have not watched this video and short story “Gathering of the Tribe”, I highly recommend you watch it now! This video and many of the writings by Charles Eisenstein have added to the inspiration for these gatherings!
The gatherings are FREE… please simply click the button above to register on Eventbrite! If you have already participated in an online gathering, you do not necessarily need to register every time – yet it is nice if you do, that makes it easy for us to send you email communications before and after the gathering.
Please join our Telegram Group. This is how we all stay connected with one another, communicate, share ideas, links and information.

Help us build our tribe and community by inviting and sharing the event on Facebook!
Online Gathering (1st Thursday of the month @ 6pm PST)
We gather online via Zoom to connect with the larger tribe worldwide. This is an opportunity to meet and network with people all around the world with shared vision and values – an invitation to connect our local tribes and network our global tribe. We have breakout rooms for smaller groups to connect more intimately, and then come back to the main group to share the wisdom and insight that was cultivated in the smaller groups. For people that are interested to live in or form an intentional community, there are opportunities for people to find intentional communities that already exist or are in the formation process. (read the gathering Manifesto here)
Real World Gathering (3rd Saturday of the month)
On the third Saturday of the month we gather together in person in our local community to celebrate life and deepen our connections. We use this general template as a framework for our in-person gatherings, yet the local organizing group has the liberty to modify the specifics to meet their local needs. If there is not already a local gathering taking place in your town/area, we invite you to start one! (if for some reason Saturday doesn’t work for your local group, you can shift it to Friday or Sunday – the important thing is that we actually get together in person, whenever it is)
Regenerative Community Development Mastermind (3rd Thursday of the month)
Next Mastermind: Thursday July 20th @ 3pm PDT
This mastermind is a more specific and focused gathering for those who are wanting to move onto land together, build and live in an intentional community. There will be pathways to learn about and explore communities that are already in the formation process; as well as pathways, resources and support for people wanting to start an intentional community from the ground up.

Imagine gathering around the fire with kindred spirits… opening sacred space…

Cultivate, Grow & Support your Local Tribe (worldwide)
Some of the original members of this group are in San Diego, CA – so we will work together to organize the in-person San Diego gatherings. If you are joining from somewhere else in the world and think you might be the only one currently participating in the group from your town or area… invite a few friends from your local area to join us for the next online gathering! That way there will be several of you to work together to help coordinate and organize your local in person gathering. The idea is to provide inspiration and support for you to cultivate and grow your tribe in your local town and community (we will be utilizing the ReVillager app and platform to support this process).
Partnership SEA (Solar Energy Alliance)
We are honored to be working together with the Solar Energy Alliance. If you would like to help us inspire the use of renewable energy we invite you to join us as an ambassador! We will pay you $1,000 as a thank you for anyone you connect us to that installs a solar system. We are also onboarding new solar consultants with the alliance. This is a great opportunity for part-time or full-time work in the renewable energy industry. See the links below for more information…
