for everyone.

 

 

 

 

 

When we discovered this magical piece of earth we instantly fell in love. Learning to live in harmony with it was a choice we made to seek a more organic, aligned, and creative way of life for ourselves, our family, and anyone else who happened to drop by.  Monitor lizards, various canines, two cats, and some very important bugs prowl the perimeter. Tropical flora give off intoxicating aromas and thousands of cicadas mark the end of the day. In the midst of this outrageous energy and as carefully as we could, we created Big Love.

Our magic retreat was built by the earth on which it stands, in harmony with the organic world that is all around.

From the constantly changing jungle to the cycles of the paddy fields and the continuously moving big sky, the focus is on connecting to this energy, and experiencing it’s flow.

Through it we explore what it means to be human as we search for better ways to organise, work, and share in cooperation with its power and beauty.

production studios

releasing the unbounded and often untapped creativity of people is at the heart of big love. we use the raw energy of the land itself and our combined talents to produce, dye, print, draw, design, make, dance, film, and generally engage in acts of spontaneous creation. the inspiration to dive in and make stuff happen is ongoing. our team and an incredible network of makers are here to help.

our next circus is scheduled for July-Aug 2022 and applications are now open. if you would like to join us, send us whatever you’d like us to know:
