COORDINATORS

La SOURCE is searching for COORDINATORS to steward, protect and nourish this project as it takes root. As a Coordinator, you become a foundational member of this project's community and help to ensure its sustainability and impact. 

Coordinators live and work on property, with 1-year renewable contracts, and agree to organize and oversee efforts in one of 6 areas of coordination.​

“A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and [people] cannot live without love.”

- Max Müller

La SOURCE is a micro-cosmic laboratory for love-studies, with the hope that on-campus explorations will reach far beyond.

COORDINATORS create and maintain the frame of the community, ensure harmonious functioning, facilitate a safe & open space of inquiry ... and in exchange (beyond the satisfaction of work aligned with shared values and vision), enjoy living year-round in an environment dedicated to love, and calling La SOURCE home

WHAT WE OFFER

All coordinators have their own private rooms and continuous access to collective spaces - free of rent and utility bills.

(this includes ongoing and open access to: wellness area with sauna, jacuzzi, pool, and botanical fire bath; meditation dome, greenhouse, our future food-forest, and all other on-campus amenities.)

Coordinators may use the property for their own individual projects and businesses - in coordination with center activities.

(for example, the use of collective spaces to teach, the use of treatment rooms for private sessions, the use of the grounds for cultivation, the use of ateliers/tools for creative practice, etc.) 

 

Coordinators' contributions are welcome in the yearly WORKBOOK/PLAYBOOK and their participation is invited in conferences and events - though not required.

(in other words, the network & resources of La SOURCE are available for sharing and circulating professional and/or creative offerings.

At least 4 weeks of vacation & the possibility for an extended sabbatical when a substitute is proposed and accepted by the team.

Participation in the yearly Family & Friends Summer Festival, during which each coordinator may invite up to 4 people from their own circle to come and enjoy La SOURCE for a week during the summer.

We've included in the functioning budget an allocation for daily provisioning (ie - household supplies and basic foods are paid for by the project)

{LIVE

WHAT WE ASK

20 hours of work a week in the area of coordination. 

(as well as tracking tasks, documenting, and providing updates; every coordinator will create and maintain a manual that provides guidance to volunteers, sabbatical substitutes, or future coordinators in order to ensure continuity. "duties" will shift between "Learning" & "Earning" seasons.)

Equitable participation in collective domestic chores to maintain a heathy & harmonious environment. (the usual stuff - cooking, cleaning, laundry, dishes, etc.; this will be  organized/transparent, and evenly distributed with all people staying on campus. many hands make light work.)

 

Cooperation with volunteers, visitors, and residents in task-management within the area of coordination.

(this will include teaching others how to help you and coordinating team efforts)

 

Attendance and participation in weekly team meetings and monthly development meetings, if on campus.

A general attitude of generosity through contribution.

(We know that there will be unanticipated tasks that arise - this might mean giving a lift to the train station, repairing a bicycle, making an unscheduled grocery-run, etc. We ask that everyone on campus comes in the spirit of support and participation. No one should feel pressured, and limits of personal health and balance will be respected.)

A commitment to enjoying life together. (Fun is part of any harmonious community. Work hard. Play hard. Live fully. - Music, fire circles, pizza parties, game nights, forest dances ... we're not only here to serve, we're here to celebrate being alive.)

WORK}

Please note that though Coordinators have 1-year renewable contracts, our wish and hope is to find a 'family' of stewards for this project - in other words, to find people who want to stay long-term.
