About the Eco-village
Our driving force behind this beautiful project, is nothing else but pure Love, and keeping life as simple as possible. We know that it is important, to have a safe place where we can be free and have the opportunity to discover many new layers of our true self. Chirokitia ecovillage is a hub for people to connect, to learn, teach, share and celebrate.
We are committed, active and accept the responsibility of our actions.
We are what we like to say "Love in Action" and the most beautiful thing about this journey we have taken is that, even though we don't know exactly where it is taking us, we trust the process, we surrender to love and enjoy the amazing experiences, beautiful self discoveries, and loving bonds it is already giving us.
We are action oriented do-ers, finding
and creating next level opportunities.
Community Life & Experiences
An organized intentional community is made up of individuals who live, work or support the project. These individuals are dedicated to their own personal growth, as well as the growth of the community, they value the natural ecology and promote sustainability. Although community life at the project is not full time, members of the community are always active and have a passion for sharing and caring for each other. Guests and visitors are always encouraged to get involved within the community and where possible play an active role, either as a member of the community or within the experiences offered at the project.
Our goal is for some-day the ecovillage to become a thriving community, a true village,
with residents, workers, helpers, volunteers, visitors, guests and elders, all living together as one.
Our goal is for the eco-village to be known as a hub where one can explore, incubate and nurture new understandings of nature, society and, most importantly, of the self. We strive to promote a new type of social paradigm, where we hope the old authoritarian, rigid thought patterns , will be replaced with emotion and concepts of harmony, love, community and self-development.
We will be the change we want to see in the world.
Retreats and Festivals
We are very blessed to have enough land to host any type of event, retreat or festival we desire. We offer events to members and guests, using our own circle of friends, and like-minded hosts, we offer more than just an event, we compile a complete experience. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to step away from their every day life and enjoy time in nature, and reconnect with the magic that is life! Whether through music, art, food or education, we want to be able to provide something for everyone.
At present, the eco-village is proud to have beautiful nature trails, a 300 people amphitheater, crafted into the natural terrain of the mountain, plus many other beautiful areas that have been naturally crafted in the landscape, while always respecting nature. These areas are all used for events and retreats.
Infrastructure of the Project
The entire infrastructure of the project is built according eco-friendly and sustainable ways. In every operational aspect, the carbon footprint will be monitored and kept to a minimum. Among many other things, the plan is for the project to produce its own power, have a recycling centre, compost organic waste and landscape the land according to the natural harmony, grow in accordance to permaculture principles, produce close to zero pollution, and use as much recycled and upscaled materials as possible.
We have already started planning on building the first workshop and event buildings, using wood, cobe, tents, recycled materials, as well as a geodesic dome.
