Discover What People Have to Say About Their Experience

  • I first heard about DR 15 years ago, finally came to visit for the first Saturday tour of 2019 back in April, and was so intrigued and really just wanted the chance to have a more extended experience of this amazing place! The highlights for me were the sessions that shone a light on the daily lives of the residents here and how they make things workable and conducive to whatever needs they have to accomplish. I loved the hands-on opportunity to help Hassan make his sand/clay/straw concoction and the opportunity to get so gloriously muddy applying it to the wall.

    Thank you for all your hard work and effort in putting this together for us to learn about your amazing home! Your community has been so great about opening itself up to complete strangers and loving and educating them!

  • I found interaction with DR members and residents…to be the most valuable portion of the weekend experience. Through the testimony of these individuals, a highly intimate and deeply personal connection were formed with DR in my mind.

    I would highly recommend this experience to everyone.

  • I have actually fallen in love with you folks and hope that we collaborate over time in the area of new sustainable economics and scaling your model.

    Alyson & Avi were the consummate hosts and teachers. Alyson has one of the best holistic facilitating styles that I have encountered in 37 years of workshops and gatherings. Tons of head material wit the right amount of balance with heart, body, & spirit.

  • Alyson’s facilitation was significantly remarkable. The way she brought joy and ease to bear must have been an enormous amount of work; it made everything else feel light, comfortable, and doable.
