Welcome to Hearthstone Village
We are a diverse, multigenerational cohousing community sharing 42 acres on BC's Sunshine Coast on the traditional lands of the ləɁamɛn giǰi (Tla’amin/Sliammon) and shíshálh (Sechelt) people.
Our community is comprised of people seeking to connect more meaningfully to each other, to nature, and to ourselves. By living close to one another, working together, and sharing spaces and resources, this village way of life offers our members the opportunity to experience interconnections while minimizing our ecological impact.
Cohousing itself offers a balance between fostering close relationships and honouring our individual needs for privacy: we share common spaces but each have our own homes as well. We blend old and new ways of living consciously to cultivate the feeling of an intact village.
Rediscovering how to live in this way includes practicing ways to deal with conflict effectively. Conflict is inevitable, and we are learning to embrace it. We recognize that "when trouble knocks, the possibility for a new kind of community is at the door" (Arnold Mindell).
