Love Comes First!

Love is the true Creator and Power behind all life. At EdenShire (which means to live in a village [shire] of Heaven on Earth [Eden], we live the principles of Love in every way possible. EdenShire is to be a spiritual retreat that uses Love as a Guide in all that we do and with every choice we make. We have selected a beautiful property for our Heaven on Earth (in the Durango, Colorado area), and are developing a village of small (“Hobbit-style”) homes—as these are built into the earth, which makes them safe, beautiful, and energy-efficient. EdenShire is a model for a new way of living for others throughout the world.

“It is possible that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual, but instead may take the form of a community — a community practicing understanding and loving kindness, a community practicing mindful living. This may be the most important thing we can do for the survival of the Earth.”

-Thich Nhat Hanh
