Very Exciting RCL News – October 2014

[Espanol abajo – gracias Dani y Adri!]

Dear family,

From the very beginning of this communal adventure called RCL we have stressed the need to grow slowly and to make sure that we take care of what we already have created instead of rushing ahead to new horizons. One community that actually works is better than a hundred that don’t.

After a summer with a lot of focus on Europe, with big rainbow gatherings in Romania and Hungary, it is clear that the general awareness of RCL is very high and that the trust is growing, even amongst our elders. “Rainbow Crystal Land” has become a generally accepted and understood term and the energy is spiralling upwards.

This has led to a wave of new donations of land – in Hungary, Poland, Brazil and possibly Peru! This rapid expansion is both an amazing opportunity and a serious challenge. Land and resources are not the main obstacles to our growth, there is an abundance of both.

It’s all about people. We are a big, strong family. Let’s come together to create the reality of our dreams. Now is the time to get off our butts and walk the talk, to pick up the hoe and the hammer and to follow our dreams not only in our minds but to manifest it through our actions. Our new lands are blank canvases waiting to be shaped by our hands and our visions. Being part of the creation of a community from Day One is rewarding beyond words.

This news update will briefly list the latest RCL developments but the more complex news items will be dealt with in separate blog entries, coming soon.

  • Let’s not forget about the crystal land in Costa Rica! The rainy season continues until around November and the community is currently down to two solitary warriors holding the fort until more people arrive! With gardens and building projects growing slowly, the community is headed for a greater degree of permanency in years to come. In the mean time, a neighbouring piece of land about three times the size of the RCL is in the process of being bought by an RCL supporter. It is unclear whether this land will legally become part of the RCL some time in the future, but the abundance of food already in existence on the new land will be used to support the RCL community across the road. The legal work involved in the purchase will hopefully also initiate the legal process of setting up an RCL Organization, ideally a trust, that will take on ownership / trusteeship of the RCL. Scottino, the highly skilled and knowledgeable original donor of the land, will spend a few months on the land from January 2015, which will no doubt be of enormous benefit to the land and the community.
  • A big piece of land in Bakony, north of Lake Balaton in Hungary, is in the process of being donated to RCL! The beautiful land containing a big forest, a river and several springs, has been in the hands of rainbow family for about 15 years but nothing much has happened on the land and no one has stayed for very long. A caravan from the world gathering has travelled down to the land and a “Crystallization Gathering” is starting up right now to seed an RCL community and to formulate a vision. A Mexican shaman is organizing a 4-day vision quest on the land starting on October 4th. A few brothers have already confirmed that they are prepared to spend the winter on the land in yurt-type housing. The legal situation is a work in process but there is a clear intention to find a solution close to the RCL vision. Temporary contact email (for Miki, often away from the internet): sziivaarvaany@gmail.com. The indiegogo fundraising campaign for RCL Hungary with a target of $2500 has so far raised $400 and will end in just over a week. A separate “RCL Hungary” blog entry with more details will be posted in the next few days.
  • Like the Hungarian land, a 30-hectare wild land of meadows and forests inhabited by bears and wolves in the Carpathian Mountains in Poland, has been in the hands of rainbow family for 15 years without much progress and is now in the process of becoming an RCL! Henri, a brother with strong visions similar to RCL, is the only current resident and is making an unconditional donation of the land to RCL. In fact, the land is already owned by a Foundation which is run by a Board, currently with Henri as the only member, and it is possible that this Foundation could qualify as an RCL Organization, perhaps with some modifications. Henri envisions a “natural village” of around 12 permanent families in a community which limits the use of electronics and alcohol / drugs, but he is willing to let go of control and is open for the community to organically create visions for itself. Henri welcomes everyone right now but we aim to bring lots of energy together in a “Crystallization Gathering” to seed the community after the winter, starting April 27th 2015. Check out Henri’s own website at santribe.openhomeo.info or send him an email at santribe@openhomeo.info. A separate “RCL Poland” blog entry with more details will be posted in the next few days.
  • The Andes scouts may have succeeded in their mission. The Israeli-Peruvian couple Ruth and Jaguar are offering a big, beautiful and fertile piece of land at an altitude of 1500m in the mountains of northern Peru to the RCL project. They currently have a personal arrangement with a local land owner to use a part of his land to create a community, and although Ruth and Jaguar are 100% committed to the RCL vision, the issue of land ownership – a key RCL requirement – remains unclear. Fabi, the Andes Scouting focalizer, will go to meet them all and see the land hopefully early next year. RCL or not, a community will nevertheless be created on this land so Ruth and Jaguar are inviting to a 3-month “Community Seed Gathering (RCL Intention)” starting May 18th 2015. Independently of this, the Andes Scouting Mission, needing more flexibility in its search, asked the RCL in Costa Rica for the power to change the Scouting Mission’s original vision, which was accepted through consensus in Costa Rica in August 2014. An Andes Scouting Circle at the world gathering in Hungary in September, led by Fabi, made a consensus to remove the term “Vipassana” from the vision (a spiritual intention is still at the core of this vision but the exact method is now open), and to change “Andes” to “Latin America” (though still focussed on the Andes and hopefully Ruth and Jaguar’s land in particular, but increasing the flexibility in case the scouting has to continue.) Ruth: ruthfinkbeiner@gmail.com. Fabi: globallurking@gmail.com. The Andes / Latin America Scouting Mission website: http://cristalandes.wordpress.com. A separate “RCL Peru” blog entry with more details will be posted in the next few days.
  • Daniel always considered his enormous land of hundreds of hectares in Minas Gerais, Brazil, a “crystal land” as crystals litter the ground all around. He was in Palenque when the RCL vision was created and invited the family to his land, but we chose to focus on Mexico and Costa Rica at the time. He tried to call a crystal land gathering on his own but bad communication contributed to the loss of focus. Daniel is now alone on the land, almost completely without infrastructure. He is fully committed to the RCL vision and is willing to sign the land over to an RCL Organization (which would have to be created by the community living there). The remote, beautiful land contains rivers and a waterfall with a swimming hole, but fertility is the big challenge. The soil is sandy and proper fertile soil for cultivation must be created from scratch – the Brazilian government can apparently help with free truckloads of cow manure. Fabi took a detour from the Andes to briefly visit the land and was very impressed and excited at the possibilities here. The land is awaiting a community; everything is ready to start the process. Right now there is no invitation for a specific date and no organised group of people going (although Fabi has said he might be willing to return and help out.) We suppose the next step in this process must be the coming together of interested parties (feel free to use the forum on this website) and perhaps the creation and announcement of a “Crystallization Gathering” on the land to seed the community, perhaps at the beginning of the dry season in May or April (?). Although rarely on the internet and not very fluent in English, you can write to Daniel here: danilapinha@hotmail.com. Perhaps it would be better if Fabi helps to gather a team and focus the energy, write to him here: globallurking@gmail.com.
  • The Oaxaca Scouting Mission (Mexico) lost its focus and the energy moved elsewhere, but we are now trying to revive it. In a Scouting Circle at the world gathering in Hungary, Adria and Martin were chosen through consensus to focalize this mission. They informed the circle that their priorities may change as news from other RCLs emerge and that the RCL vision in general might benefit more from a different focus, and the circle accepted this. Nevertheless, they are planning a scout council in the high mountains of Oaxaca in January 2015. More news on this, contact emails, etc., will be posted on this blog as more clarity arises before January.
  • Version 3 of the RCL Declaration of Common Intention was accepted through global consensus in August 2014. After a legal review by professional lawyers, “Appendix B – Land Ownership” has been simplified in order to support and offer flexibility to the legal processes in Costa Rica and other RCLs. Version 3 has been posted on the Background page on this website (and needs to be translated!).
  • Work continues on our Common RCL Websitehttp://www.rainbowcrystalland.org – though it has still not been published. 4-5 more volunteers to help with the programming were gathered at the rainbows in Romania and Hungary. We have probably found a free server to host the website. More volunteers with some programming experience are always needed, we are still very far away from fulfilling the full vision of the website even if a first, simple version is almost ready. Please let us know in a comment below if you would like to volunteer.
  • The Rainbow Crystal Land Handbook is a great way to spread awareness of the RCL vision. The link to the 23-page printable document is available on the front page of this website.
  • A sound healing / sushi caravan was created in Europe this summer, making money in festivals to support RCLs and their members. This is meant to be an ongoing sustainable project to create abundance for RCL. Although not an entirely “open” caravan, it will continue next summer with possibly some old and some new participants.

Peace

Querida familia,

Desde el comienzo de esta aventura comunitaria llamada TCA, hemos acentuado la necesidad de crecer lentamente y de asegurarnos que cuidemos lo que ya hemos creado en lugar de apurarnos hacia nuevos horizontes. Una comunidad que de verdad funciona es mejor que cien que no.

Después de un verano con mucho foco en Europa con grandes encuentros Arcoiris en Rumania y Hungaria, queda claro que la conciencia general de TCA es muy alta y que la confianza está creciendo, incluso entre nuestros mayores. “Tierra Cristal Arcoiris“ se ha convertido en un término generalmente aceptado y entendido y la energía está creciendo en espiral ascendente.

Esto ha conducido a una nueva ola de donaciones de tierra en Hungria, Polonia, Brasil y posiblemente Perú! Esta rápida expansion es ambos: una maravillosa oportunidad y un desafío serio. Las tierras y los recursos no son los principales obstáculos de nuestro crecimiento, hay abundancia de ambos.

Todo es acerca de la gente. Somos una familia grande y fuerte. Unámonos para crear la realidad de nuestros sueños. Ahora es el momento de levantarnos de nuestros traseros y caminar lo platicado, de tomar la pala y el martillo y seguir nuestros sueños, no solo en nuestras mentes sino también manifestandolos a través de nuestras acciones. Nuestras nuevas tierras son lienzos en blanco esperando para ser moldeados por nuestras manos y visiones. Ser parte de la creación de una comunidad desde el Día Uno es gratificante más allá de las palabras.

Este resúmen de noticias alistará brevemente los últimos desarrollos pero los articulos más complejos serán discutidos en entradas de blog separadas, en breve.

  • No nos olvidemos de la tierra cristal en Costa Rica! La temporada de lluvia continua hasta alrededor de noviembre y la comunidad está actualmente siendo llevada adelante por dos guerreros solitarios aguantando la fortaleza hasta que más guerreros lleguen! Con proyectos de jardines y construcciones creciendo lentamente, la comunidad está apuntando para un mayor nivel de permanencia en los años venideros. Mientras tanto, una porción de tierra vecina, cerca de tres veces mas grande que la TCA, está en proceso de ser comprada por un partidario de TCA. Está incierto si la tierra sera legalmente parte de TCA en algún momento futuro, pero la abundancia de comida que ya existe en la nueva tierra sera usada en apoyo de la comunidad TCA del otro lado del camino..El trabajo legal envuelto en la compra esperanzadamente iniciaría el proceso de llevar a cabo una Organización TCA, idealmente un fideicomiso, que tomaría como propietario/fideicomisario a la TCA. Scottino, el altamente hábil y conocido como original donador de la tierra, pasará algunos meses en la tierra a partir de Enero de 2015, que sin lugar a dudas sera de enorme beneficio para la tierra y la comunidad.
  • Una gran porción de tierra en Bakony, al norte del Lago Balaton en Hungaria, está en proceso de ser donada a TCA! Esta Hermosa tierra que contiene un gran bosque, un río y varios manantiales, ha estado en manos de la familia arcoiris desde hace quince años, pero no ha sucedido mucho en la tierra y nadie se ha quedado por mucho tiempo. Una caravana desde el encuentro mundial ha viajado hacia la tierra y un “ Encuentro de Cristalización“ está empezando ahora mismo para sembrar una semilla de comunidad TCA y formular una vision. Un chamán mexicano está organizando una búsqueda de vision de 4 días. Algunos hermanos ya han confirmado que están preparados para pasar el invierno en la tierra en viviendas tipo yurtas. La situación legal está en proceso pero hay una clara intención de encontrar una solución cercana a la vision de TCA. Contacto temporal de correo electronico (Miki, usualmente lejos del internet): sziivaarvaany@gmail.com. La campaña de recaudación de fondos en Indiegogo para la TCA de Hungaria con un gol de $2500 ha hasta ahora recaudado $400 y terminará en aproximadamente una semana. Una entrada separada “TCA Hungria“ con más detalles sera publicada en los próximos días.

  • Como en la tierra húngara, una tierra salvaje de 30 hectáreas en los prados y bosques habitados por osos y lobos en los Cárpatos en Polonia, ha estado en las manos de la familia arcoiris por 15 años sin mucho progreso y ahora está en proceso de convertirse en una TCA! Henri, un hermano con fuertes visiones, similares a TCA, es el único residente actual y está haciendo una donación incondicional de la tierra a TCA. De hecho, la tierra ya es propiedad de una Fundación, que es llevada a cabo por una Junta donde actualmente Henri es el único miembro, y es possible que la Fundación pueda calificar como una Organización TCA, quizás con algunas modificaciones. Henri visualiza una “ villa natural“ de alrededor de 12 familias permanentes en una comunidad que limita el uso de electrónicos y alcohol/drogas, pero está dispuesto a dejar de lado el control y está abierto para que la comunidad orgánicamente cree visiones por sí misma. Henri da la bienvenida ahora mismo, pero nosotros aspiramos a traer mucha energía juntos en un “ Encuentro de Cristalización“ para sembrar la semilla de comunidad después del invierno, empezando el 27 de Abril de 2015. Checa la propia página web de Henri en openhomeo.info ó envíale un correo electrónico a : santribe@openhomeo.info.Una entrada de blog separada “TCA Polonia“ con más detalles sera publicada en los próximos días.

  • Las busquedas de tierra en los Andes han tenido éxito en su misión. La pareja Israelí-Peruana Ruth y Jaguar están ofreciendo una gran, fertil y hermosa tierra en una altitude de 1500 metros en las montañas del norte de Perú en el proyecto TCA. Ellos actualmente tienen un acuerdo personal con un dueño de tierra local para usar parte de su tierra para crear una comunidad, y aunque Ruth y Jaguar están 100% comprometidos con la vision de TCA, la cuestión de la propiedad –algo clave como requerimiento de TCA- no está muy clara. Fabi, el focalizador de la Búsqueda en los Andes, irá a verlos y vera la tierra esperanzadamente a comienzos del próximo año, no obstante, siendo TCA ó no, una comunidad sera creada en esta tierra entonces Ruth y Jaguar están invitando a un “Encuentro Semilla de Comunidad Arcoiris (con intención TCA) de tres meses, empezando el 18 de Mayo de 2015. Independientemente de esto, la Misión de Búsqueda de los Andes, necesitando más flexibilidad en su búsqueda, pidió a la TCA en Costa Rica el poder de cambiar la vision original de la Búsqueda de Tierra, la cual fué aceptada a través de consenso en Costa Rica en Agosto de 2014. En el círculo de Búsqueda de los Andes en el encuentro mundial de Hungria, en septiembre, encabezado por Fabi, se consensuó remover el término “Vipassana“ de la vision (una intención spiritual aún es el núcleo de esta visión pero el método exacto aún esta abierto), y para cambiar “Andes “ a “América Latina“(aunque aún enfocado en los Andes y esperanzadamente en la tierra de Ruth y Jaguar, pero incrementando la flexibilidad en caso de que la búsqueda tenga que continuar) Ruth: ruthfinkbeiner@gmail.com. Fabi: globallurking@gmail.com. Página web de la Misión de Búsqueda en América Latina http://cristalandes.wordpress.com. Una entrada separada de blog “TCA Perú“ con más detalles sera publicada en los próximos días.
  • Daniel siempre ha considerado su enorme tierra de cientos de hectáreas en Minas Gerais, Brasil, una “Tierra Cristal“ ya que hay cristales en todo alrededor. El estaba en Palenque cuando la visión de las TCA fué creada e invito a la familia a su tierra, pero nosotros decidimos enfocarnos en Costa Rica y en México en ése momento. El intentó llamar a un Encuentro de Tierra Cristal Arcoiris por sí mismo, pero la pérdida de comunicación contribuyó a una pérdida de atencion. Daniel está ahora solo en la tierra, casi completamente sin infraestructura. El está completamente comprometido con la visión TCA y está dispuesto a ceder la tierra sobre una Organización TCA (la que tendra que ser creada por la comunidad viviendo allí). La remota, hermosa tierra contiene ríos y una cascada con una poza natural, pero en terminos de fertilidad es un gran desafío. La tierra es arenosa y para hacerla fertil para cultivo debe prepararse desde cero. Aparentemente el gobierno brasilero puede ayudar con camiones de estiércol de vaca gratuitos. Fabi tomó un desvío desde los Andes para conocer brevemente la tierra, y quedó muy impresionado y excitado con las posibilidades allí. Esta tierra está esperando una comunidad, todo está listo para comenzar el proceso . Ahora no hay invitación para una fecha específica ni un grupo organizado de gente yendo (aunque Fabi ha dicho que él talvéz está dispuesto a retornar y ayudar). Suponemos que el próximo paso en este proceso sera unir las partes interesadas (siéntete libre de usar el foro de esta página web) y quizás la creación y anuncio de un “Encuentro de Cristalización“en la tierra para sembrar la comunidad, quizás al comienzo de la estación seca en Mayo ó Abril (?). Aunque raramente en el internet y no habla mucho ingles, tú puedes escribirle a Daniel aquí: danilapinha@hotmail.com. Quizás sería mejor si nos juntamos con Fabi para ayudar al equipo y focalizar la energía , escríbele a él aquí: globallurking@gmail.com.
  • La Misión de búsqueda de Oaxaca (México) perdió su foco y la energía se movió hacia otro lugar, pero ahora estamos tratando de revivirla. En un círculo de Búsqueda en el encuentro mundial de Hungria, Adria y Martin fueron elegidos a través de consenso para focalizar esta misión. Ellos informaron en el círculo que las prioridades quizás cambien, así como noticias de otras TCA emerjan, y que la visión en general talvéz se beneficie más desde un foco diferente, y el círculo aceptó esto. No obstante, están planeando empezar un consejo de búsqueda en las altas montañas de Oaxaca en enero de 2015. Mas noticias de esto, contactos de correos electrónicos, etc. serán publicados en este blog en cuanto más claridad surga, antes de Enero.
  • Versión 3 de la Declaración de Intención Común de TCAfué aceptada a través de conseso global en Agosto de 2014. Luego de una revision legal de abogados profesionales, “Apéndice B- “Propiedad de la Tierra“ ha sido simplificado en órden de apoyar y ofrecer flexibilidad a los procesos legales en Costa Rica y otras TCAs. La version 3 ha sido publicada en la página soporte de este sitio web (y necesita ser traducida!)
  • El trabajo continúa en el Sitio Web Común TCA– http://www.rainbowcrystalland.orgaunque aún no ha sido publicada, entre 4 a 5 voluntarios extra, que reunimos entre los encuentros de Rumania y Hungaria ayudarán con la programación. Hemos encontrado probablemente u servidor gratis para realizer la página. Más voluntaries con alguna experiencia en programación son siempre necesitados, nosotros aún estamos muy lejos de cumplir la visión entera de la página web, incluso de que una primera, simple version esté casi lista. Por favor déjanos saber debajo sit e gustaría ser un voluntario.
  • El Libro de bolsillo Tierra Cristal Arco Iris es una manera genial de difundir la conciencia de la visión de TCA. El enlace del documento imprimible de 23 páginas está disponible en la página delantera de éste sitio web.
  • Una caravana de musicoterapia/suchi fué creada en Europa en éste verano, obteniendo dinero en festivals para apoyar a las TCA y sus miembros. Esto puede resultar como un proyecto abierto para crear abundancia para TCA. Aunque no es una caravana completamente “abierta“, ésta continuará en el siguiente verano, con posiblemente algunos participantes viejos y nuevos.

RCL News August 2014!

  • The RCL in Costa Rica is flourishing. Hundreds of fruit trees have been planted, the greenhouse is full of fat and juicy veggies, the kitchen has been expanded, new water systems and compost toilets constructed and the cob house is in the process of being crowned with a roof. A lot of awareness of this land has been created and plenty of energy is flowing here – the last dry season saw a peak of around 50 people on the land, pushing the carrying capacity to the limit. But right now the rainy season is in full swing and only four warriors are holding the fort for all of us… they are calling for our support right now! We hope a separate update from this land will be coming soon on this website; in the meantime you can enjoy this simple but beautiful introductory video from the community: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8al4Jfp8Dk
  • The Scouting Mission in the Andes have been busy seeing lands in Peru, Brazil and Bolivia over the last six months but the core of the team are spending the summer in Europe to raise funds to continue scouting. The fact that several lands have been offered for free shows that our vision has a tremendous potential, although “the perfect land” is yet to be found. The Scouting Focalizer, Fabi, has requested a new consensus from the RCL in Costa Rica (where the Scouting Mission was born) to enable him to call Scouting circles with the power to change the Founding Consensus for the Scouting Mission. The scouting team feels it needs more flexibility in its approach to finding a land, which could mean expanding the area of the search and / or redefining the spiritual intention. An update was posted today on the Andes Scouting Mission blog: http://cristalandes.wordpress.com/2014/08/08/scouting-update/
  • Core RCL members are going to the big rainbow gatherings in Europe this summer to spread the RCL vision. We will be doing RCL talking circles at the European gathering in Romania a few days after full moon August and at the world gathering in Hungary probably a few days before full moon.
  • The national Hungarian gathering in June/July left behind a community which seeks RCL status. Issues relating to land ownership and national park limitations are being worked on, and a vision for the land and community is slowly materialising. The community is asking for a slow growth and no immediate big influx of people. They have launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise money and they are looking for an architect to help restore an old cellar on the land.
  • The RCL Common Website (rainbowcrystalland.org) is close to being launched in a simple first version. A new Common Website Focalizer is sought to bring this website to the next level. It has been created in Django, but a vision of an open source wikipedia-style website that doesn’t require too much energy from any single individual is emerging. New energy to help with this transition would be more than welcome. A first version of the content for the website has been available for a while but is still unpublished. We have therefore adapted this website content into an “RCL Handbook” in a pdf file that can be distributed at gatherings. This 25 page document offers a much deeper understanding of the RCL vision and will hopefully in the future be open for communal editing through the Common Website in order to express our common consciousness. Download the Rainbow Crystal Land Handbook V1 here.
  • After a legal review of our Declaration of Common Intention by a US lawyer and the head of the New Earth Project legal team, we have realised that the legal part of our DCI V2 must be more flexible, simple and open and less specific. V3 will no doubt be far from perfect but it is a step in the right direction in this continuous work in progress. This is an official Global Consensus Request that has already been considered in a circle in the Oaxaca Scouting Mission and it has been forwarded to the RCL in Costa Rica for a final consensus. The changes are explained in the RCL Handbook (see link above). We are proposing the following changes (in bold) to the DCI:Part II – Organization
    • An RCL is a piece of land hosting a permanent community aiming for sustainable living, fulfilling or soon to fulfil our legal ideals for land ownership as closely as possible. A new RCL is accepted into the RCL Network…
    • RCL Organizations may have to be created to fulfil our ideals concerning land ownership. An RCL Organization is set up according to the guidelines in “Appendix B – Land Ownership” and is accepted into the RCL Network…

    Appendix B – Land Ownership

    1) We wish to declare the lands we inhabit as ownerless in a legally acceptable way. Our RCL Communities assume guardianship of the lands and peacefully seek full political autonomy.

    2) Until 1) has been achieved, we see common ownership by local RCL Organizations that give us the legal right to stay on the land as a temporary solution. An RCL Organization will hold land and permanent structures in perpetual, irrevocable Trusteeship (preferred) or outright Ownership on behalf of the rainbow family (meaning all human beings), Mother Earth and all beings.

    Each RCL Community must find solutions within the local legal system to set up RCL Organizations that operate as closely as possible to these ideals:

    • The Organization must be recognized by the local legal system.
    • Everyone present on the land have equal rights and responsibilities.
    • Decisions are made by consensus of the community.
    • The Organization does not borrow money.

See you in 5 minutes in Romania and Hungary. Love and light to all.

Mision de Busqueda / Scouting Mission – Oaxaca, Mexico

[ENGLISH BELOW]

Querida familia,

Nos encontramos ahora mismo disfrutando de un encuentro pequeño pero concentrado en la tierra de Jonas cerca de Mazunte, Oaxaca, Mexico. Estamos construyendo techos y espacios, creando un increible huerto de permacultura, haciendo yoga cada mañana, compartiendo nuestras visiones en circulos y viviendolas a traves de nuestras acciones. En un dia o dos la atencion se movera hacia las cuestiones practicas de la busqueda para la TCA en la exuberantes montañas de Oaxaca.

Estamos extremadamente felices de que mucha atencion y energia esta yendo para la TCA de Costa Rica y la Mision de Busqueda de la Tierra en los Andes pero parece que la Mision de Busqueda de Oaxaca esta sufriendo en consecuencia. Gente con un dedicado compromiso a largo plazo se necesita ahora para realizar la vision de Oaxaca. Encontrar esta tierra sin duda tomara muchos meses de esfuerzo concentrado de un equipo dedicado, sin mencionar el crear la comunidad en si. Aun asi, con la extremada generosidad logistica y financiera del apoyo de Jonas no podriamos imaginar una Mision de Busqueda mas facil.

Esto podria suceder ahora mismo. Todo lo que necesitamos es querer que pase.

Bienvenido a casa!

Adria y Martin


[ENGLISH]

Dear family,

We are currently enjoying a small but focused gathering on Jonas’ land near Mazunte, Oaxaca, Mexico. We are building roofs and spaces, creating an amazing permaculture garden, doing yoga every morning, sharing our visions in circles and living them through our actions. In a day or two the focus will move to the practicalities of scouting for an RCL in the gorgeous, lush mountains of Oaxaca.

We are extremely happy that so much focus and energy is going to the RCL in Costa Rica and the Scouting Mission in the Andes but it seems like the Scouting Mission in Oaxaca is suffering as a consequence. People with a dedicated, long-term commitment to this mission is needed right now in order to realize the Oaxaca vision. Finding this land will no doubt take many months of concentrated effort from a dedicated team, not to mention creating a community afterwards. Even so, with the extremely generous logistical and financial support of Jonas we can’t imagine an easier Scouting Mission.

This can really happen, right now. All we need is to want it to happen.

Welcome home!

Adria and Martin

Translations

The RCL DCI V2 is now available in Spanish and Japanese on the Background page. Various web pages and The Alternative One Page Summary have been translated to Japanese. A huge thank you to the translators: Mar, Adria and Asami! Rainbowcrystalland.org is only days away from being published so let’s focus future translation efforts on this new website (which will exist in its entirety in any number of languages). In the Mazunte, Mexico gathering I will make a circle to suggest a new DCI Appendix B which should help the RCL in Costa Rica in their legal work.

La Tierra Cristal Arcoiris Declaracion de Intencion Comun Version 2 esta disponible en espanol en la pagina Background! En el encuentro en Mazunte, Mexico, voy a sugerir cambios en el DIC Apendice B para ayudar la TCA en Costa Rica en su trabajo legal.

Luz, paz y amor

Rainbow Vision Gathering / Encuentro Visiones Arco Iris – Mazunte, Oaxaca, Mexico – Jan 1 to Jan 30 2014

invitation

[Alguien por favor agregue una traducción española en un comentario de abajo! Gracias!]

Welcome home to Jonas’ land near Mazunte!

This is an open invitation to a gathering of family, just like any rainbow gathering, but with a focus on activating Jonas’ land and projects and the RCL Scouting Mission in the mountains of Oaxaca. The caravan from California to Costa Rica will pass through the land for full moon December 17 to initiate the scouting and the seed camp for the gathering, which will go from new moon to new moon in January. As this gathering takes place on Jonas’ private land there is an opportunity to create permanent structures and other projects that won’t be torn down at the end of the gathering. Jonas’ visions for his land extend far beyond his personal interests.

How to get there:

From Mazunte go in the direction of Ventanilla, follow a sign on the right to Nido de las Aguilas, et voila!

See map below.

Please do not spread this message publicly on Facebook, especially not the map.

Welcome home! See you there!

Martin

PS! Having received a legal review by a professional of our legal requirements in our RCL DCI V2, it seems obvious that we need to make some changes to the DCI in order to help Costa Rica set up the first RCL Organization. I would like to call a circle at some point after full moon January at this gathering to focus on that.

Volunteers needed now – Spanish translator and web programmer

Family,

Someone with a very high level of Spanish is needed to finish off the English-Spanish translation of the RCL DCI V2. It has already been done but with many mistakes and inconsistent language, there are many unusual technical terms. But the hard work has been done, you just need to do the final polish. It will soon be needed in Costa Rica to set up our first RCL Organization that will take on the ownership of the land. Contact me – martinvoll@gmail.com.

Santiago is working on rainbowcrystalland.org… alone! He is hoping to publish a first ‘shell’ soonish but we could take a load off his shoulders if volunteers with some experience of programming were helping out. You don’t need to be an expert, you will be guided by Santi. Contact Santiago – santi.romero@gmail.com.

Thank you! Peace!

Martin

Caravan California-Costa Rica update

Hello family 🙂

we are something like 40 people around Ensenada, baja california. some came early, some came late.

we had a beautiful vision council in a beautiful wild hot spring.

we made a few consensuses about meeting points and dates.

the important thing for everybody to understand is that the purpose of these meeting points is to celebrate new moon and full moon, continue the vision councils in order to activate creative energy to manifest the future and to bring it to the costa rica community.

each meeting became as short gathering and people travel together as usual.
but there is no such thing as one big caravan traveling together from meeting point to meeting point.
there is no big food circle prepared to feed everyone.
anyway similar things are happening automatically but if you expect that, you could be disappointed unless you focalize it.

proper infomation will update to this google group.
https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/2013caravn-california-costarica

there is a facebook group too, it’s used for chatting and invite family, spread message.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/455393291233515/

*** 17 DEC 2013 full moon
we meet at Jonas’s private land in mazunte, oaxaca, mexico
main topic of vision council is about scouting new rainbow crystal land in the mountains in oaxaca.
this vision council will continue every new moon and full moon in jonas’s private land until we find land and start a community.

exact location of jonas’s land will be provided soon.

there is an intention of winter solstice celebration somewhere there.

there are vipassana courses happening at these times:

11 – 22 DEC near mexico city.
26 DEC – 6 JAN near mexico city.
