I am an Imagineer (Thank you Walt Disney Co. for coining the phrase)

Imagineering, for me, is building a bridge from here to a tomorrow of more joy, purpose and collaboration.

When I was four years old my family immigrated from Argentina to the U.S leaving behind extended family and community, this dislocation from a sense of belonging, is at the root of my mission; to co­-create places where individuals are nurtured in their gifts as a path to a thriving community.

I have imagineered a path to that community and will be detailing it in a series of blogs here on Parabuilding.

The steps will be:

  1. Find the right people
  2. Organize into teams
  3. Select the first site, build the village, plan for the next village.

The premise; A group of pioneers can be found and supported in building the first, in a network of, EcoVillage Makers District, run as a workers Cooperative Corporation.

I feel that veterans are the best choice for this endeavor because they have exemplified collaborative action and many have experienced deep feelings of isolation.

I look forward to getting feedback and working with others sharing this vision, and hope to break ground and live in this kind of community soon.

Blessings on your Journey
