Siskiyou Householder Refuge is a sustainable, multi-generational community developing 32 units nestled into a 14-acre site that is being developed as a Zen Buddhist temple and habitat refuge. A Common House with kitchen, multi-use dining area, laundry and guest rooms is included. Community gardens and an orchard will be shared with the temple. The Householder Refuge is intended to support people with an interest in meditation and mindfulness, furthering their practice by allowing them to live in community with one another in close proximity to a Buddhist temple. Temple affiliation, participation, and commitments are entirely optional, allowing practitioners and families access without obligation. Units in the Householder Refuge will be in small clusters of attached housing (town houses and flats) containing from one to four bedrooms each. Some studios will also be available. These buildings will be two story structures, arranged to form an optimal balance of private and shared space, and a friendly, collaborative relationship with surrounding residential neighborhoods. Core values are harmony, mindfulness, and sustainability. Links: Dharma Rain Siskiyou Householder Refuge: Basic description of the Cohousing project, with a link to a detailed description.
