Quote from Eliza-Beth, who attended the women’s visitor session last year:

“Attending the womyn only visitor session was transformative. I felt at ease expressing my thoughts, feelings, vulnerabilities and confusion in ways I may not have felt comfortable doing in a co-ed visitor session.

“I loved being surrounded by curious women. I felt deeply privileged to share such a safe space with a diverse group of women in such a wide array of circumstances… from serious conversations to silly pond time, it was a heart-warming and self-affirming journey.” – Eliza-Beth, 27

Apply for this visitor program today to claim one of the 7 spots remaining!  

Dancing Rabbit is an ecovillage, sustainability demonstration project, and robust and growing intentional community in rural northeast Missouri.

The rain could not have come soon enough as our gardens have been thirsty and the cisterns running low. Last Sunday saw the end of the Milkweed Mercantile’s Preserving the Harvest workshop. About 9 folks came from all over the country to learn about canning, fermenting, and…read more >

It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s a… Drone? A Dancing Rabbit Update

I'm often surprised at how much we (the world in general, including those of us living at Dancing Rabbit) rely on technology, bucolic rural location notwithstanding. Given what we know about the impacts of resource extraction, and the negative effects this has on our environment and indigenous populations, how much longer can we continue to pretend "everything is fine" and feel good about our personal tech and the power it consumes? Cob here, bringing you the news of this past week at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage. I do find myself sliding into grumpy-old-man territory more often as the work of my…read more >
