How to Live in Heaven, HERE!

Click on image to download full flyer plus picnic announcement

Lab feels like heaven – right here and right now. Heaven is not a location but a state of mind, an attitude of AWE and WONDER. We can create heaven inside ourselves through spiritual and psychological development, and between and among individuals through relationships, collaborative circles, and the culture we create together.


  • Practice radical openness in a safe context
  • Connect deeply with others who are also growing themselves
  • Dissolve barriers to love
  • Enjoy creative expression of all kinds
  • Live in the natural world, explore freedom and energy, and live in the present

Port Gardner Cohousing is forming in Everett, WA

The following was sent from the core group of Port Gardner Cohousing Community. They hosted an event in Everett, Washington at the end of July 2017 for people interested in cohousing.

We have 8 core members now and are actively recruiting individuals and families. We had a public event on July 31, called “What’s It Like to Live in Cohousing?” A panel of people currently living in cohousing were there to say what they like and don’t like about cohousing — the realities. The other groups represented on the panel were Tammany Commons, a forming community which plans to find land around Marysville, WA; and Skagit Cohousing which is forming in Skagit Valley. Upper Langley Cohousing also has a lot for sale. (Another group in the Skagit/Whatcom County area is forming and looking for land to buy. They are called Inspired Cohousing.  – editor’s note)

Port Gardner Cohousing Community is made of of people who love Everett. We love the size of Everett, and the lack of traffic and congestion. We enjoy the walkability, and the fact that we have our own hockey team, baseball team, orchestra, community theater and historic theater, plus our own public radio station. Living right on Puget Sound gives us beautiful views and access to the water. We have beautiful parks and the best public boat launch on the west coast. We have great restaurants and coffee shops, including a new vegan restaurant. For more information, contact Patrick Hall.
