“Beyond our ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase ‘each other’ doesn’t make sense any more.”   

~ Rumi

The vision for The Rural Project came after experiencing the connection between people and space, and adding meaning to that relationship. With that intention be it both rural and urban, it opens the door to well nurtured projects, relationships and people. Here, this formula is applied to a rural setting to imbibe the wellbeing from the natural environment into the work people produce and the quality of the offering available. 

The field can be felt; it is hostile or loving, repressed or fluid. It consists not only of such overt, visible, tangible structures such as meeting agendas, party platforms and rational debate but also hidden, invisible, intangible emotional processes such as jealousy, prejudice, hurt and anger.

In any group, certain problems must be solved in a stunted, linear, rationale manner. These solutions will hold up, though, only if disturbances in the feeling atmosphere have been addressed first.
— Arnold Mindell ~ Sitting in the Fire
