Casa de Luz Village-Building Health and Community
Religion comes from Latin re ligare, which means to put back together again. Whole plants are served at community tables. The kitchen is open to the dining room. One uniting meal is served to all. These are elements that bring us together with people and nature. Re ligare is the act of bringing unity, then Casa is my religion in the purest sense of the word and my meal is holy communion with mother earth and sharing with the community

The philosophy of how to live a great life (Macrobiotics) is the founding idea for Casa de Luz. This is an all encompassing philosophy, which includes all methods of supporting health and freedom. Our mission is to offer a sacred space for those that want to bring their disciplines to share with the community. Casa de Luz is open to all. Our reason for being is to practice and live in integrity. We believe that living with integrity includes practicing, learning, teaching, and sharing actions and philosophies to develop conscious living and cognition.
It also takes commitment, authenticity, appreciation, and openness to be wrong. The search for improvement is necessary, the least we become arrogant and dogmatic. This is a place that is ever changing and colored by the practices that people bring to share. In order to fulfill its complete destiny, Casa de Luz will create a full spectrum village which will be designed to include smart living modalities. Humanity's recent industrialized development has created conveniences that have proven to be detrimental to the overall health of all things on earth. The automobile, while wonderful, has proven to destroy well being. Industrialized foods have been made tasty, attractive and cheap, yet not only do they lack nourishment, but they also cause illness. By design, a village can support well being for all. Those in Casa's community are the designers of the emerging village.
Our aim is to serve and support well being. We prepare all foods without compromise and serve them in an atmosphere that is peacefully open to individual and communal growth. It is an invaluable experience when people, searching for their own truths, have the opportunity to sit and share with others doing the same. We learn from each other, reflect each other, and discover more about ourselves. We grow into more compassionate human beings. The dining room provides an environment for the community to come together in this important way- ideas, experiences, and love are shared and a higher purpose is created. Through community, we get to see the face of something larger than our individual selves. We are all teachers and we are all students at the table of life. - Wayo
