Latest Documentary on East Wind

The latest documentary on East Wind has just been published. It is a short film created by TRT News. My voice was used for much of the transition narration (I was provided with a script, but the documentary producer did allow us some amount of editorial control). This is the result of a five day visit and is a very good introduction to our community. Check it out below!

Thank you, Tev and Jerome!

  1. Debra you are more beautiful than ever. I have thought of you so many times over the years. I cried when I learned that the shower house burned down. I didn’t see Yo so I guess he has found out what happens next. Song

  2. Interesting video! I have visited before with a group of classmates, but I’m seriously thinking about doing a longer visit. Love the updates Sumner, really cool. 🙂

  3. Beautiful film. Warmed the cockles of my heart! Great to meet
    some of the folks living @ EW and good to see the astonishing Debra.
    Link to film was posted on Friends of EW Facebook page but it is no longer on You Tube 🙁
    Love all the blogs. – Derek. (Aka Sumac )

  4. This is beautiful! This is exactly as I see myself living the rest of my life. How would I go about visiting and hopefully becoming a resident and active in your community?
    My email is; if you could give me some information on how to get started, this would be greatly appreciated.

  5. WOW! Loved It! Im a filmmaker myself and was very impressed , I feel like, as a viewer, I have a better understanding of the essence of the community!

  6. I would love to get to know your community!

  7. I’ve always envisioned living on a commune or even villa. Where the common thread is a sense of personal freedom and that much needed connection with other like minded folks. How can my family and I find out about visiting?

    • Hey Alyx,

      The process to become a member for families is a little more than that required on an individual, as you can see here. Feel free to look at the visitor page and send an email to our Membership team at:

      In a couple days I will have a new (and very newsy) blog post out, don’t forget to check it out!

      Have a good one,
