Blog Post: Getting to Know One of Our Founders, Kyle Shinners


By trade I am an acupuncturist, by craft a medicine man, by choice a husband, father and community member.  In another six months, I'll complete my doctorate and be able to legally call myself a "doctor," which I dig because it comes from the Latin word docere: to teach.  After almost two decades in the field of medicine and healing arts, I'm beginning to accept the truth that there is no disease to be 'fixed' or 'healed' rather lessons to be learned and patterns to be recognized on our path of growth.  

Upcoming Events

Our beautiful, one hundred year old Wisteria will be blooming mid-March to early April.  If you are a photographer, we have a special opportunity for you!  We invite you to schedule a photo shoot under our wisteria and make a small, 10% suggested donation to our Wisteria Trellis Fund.  The trellis that supports the Wisteria needs to be rebuilt and we are raising funds to build a magnificent new trellis.  Please link below to email questions regarding this offer.  It is truly a magical place for a photo shoot!

A 3-Day Training on Sociocracy with Diana Leafe Christian

Diana Leafe Christian, Author of Creating a Life Together, is in Southern California offering a training in Sociocracy, the governance model we use here at The Emerald Village.  
Sociocracy for Intentional Communities and Member-Led Groups ~ 
Saturday March 10-Monday March 12, 2018

Sociocracy, “governance by peers and colleagues,” is an effective self-governance and decision-making method I now highly recommend. Based on the values of equivalence, transparency and effectiveness, when Sociocracy is used correctly it tends to result in better meetings, getting more done, being better organized and feeling more connected to other group members. (Sociocracy is sometimes also called Dynamic Governance in the US. It’s exactly the same thing.)
