Events

We have several ongoing events open to the public at Kailash Ecovillage.

Our monthly first Saturday public tours were cancelled during the Covid-19 pandemic. In lieu of public tours, we created a 32 minute virtual tour. However, as the pandemic concerns have diminished, we have been able to restart some events:

  • our public tours are back, from March to November. Due to dark dreary weather, we forgo tours December, January, and February. The tour lasts about an hour and starts at 3 pm. Show up at the Welcome Post at the bottom of the driveway adjacent to the wood chip depot. We sincerely apologize, but the wood chip pathways on our grounds are not accessible by wheelchairs.

  • Our Group Gardens program hosts periodic garden work parties for GG participants. You must sign up to participate in this program.

  • Ole hosts an ongoing Sustainable Projects update discussing ecovillage projects, past, present, and future, on the third Monday of the month at 7pm. This is an RSVP event, so please contact him if you wish to participate.

At one time, every Sundays at 1:30pm or so, the Touching Earth Sangha hosted an outdoor sitting and walking meditation, tai chi, and group discussion with questions and answers about meditation practice. Here is a recent article about Touching Earth. Here is another article by Satya,  How, then, shall we live?, that discusses how a Buddhist lifestyle can both address so many of the current world ills and lead to personal self realization at the same time. Many of these ideas have influenced Kailash’s approach to living. As of 1/1/2020, this practice has moved to a new location: 408 SE 45th Avenue.

Other events are scheduled on an ad hoc basis and may be posted here if open to the public.
