Loki the Spes Bus is a mobile community of creative people attempting to broaden our experience in sustainable, conscious and communal living by traveling from community to community, sharing skills and engaging in work exchange. Our mission is founded on a couple of ideas: 1) a dream to create our highest vision of a nurturing, creative, sustainable and educational space someday 2) the belief in every individual as a student and a teacher, capable of growth. Community is strengthened when each person in it recognizes their ability to grow from being open to learning and sharing their gifts by teaching. Fear of difference is overcome in the cycle of respect that this kind of education creates. In the first leg of our journey together (between Feb 15 2012 and Aug 2012) we were fortunate to live and work with five different communities in North Carolina, learning about permaculture, homesteading, small-scale organic farming and a variety of viable community infrastructures, sharing music, visual art, and constructions from salvaged materials, and trying our hand (thanks mostly to our time at Snaggy Farm in Burnsville and at The Landing in Asheville) in the performative arts, reading poetry, juggling, dancing, experimenting with acrobatics and acro-yoga, and lots of busking! We are currently on hiatus from the bus, planning to put together a fundraising campaign so we can invest in alternative fuel (i.e. no more expensive, unhealthy petroleum fuels!) and taking our balance of individual space (six months+six people+one bus; we fib you not!)
