Join us! Share our beautiful, peaceful private home, in the smaller of the 2 available rooms (see the other listing for the second room - The Center for Inspired Living 1). There are beautiful gardens to enjoy outdoors… native plants, fruit trees, goldfish pond and butterflies galore!
This is a shoes-off house. There are socks available, or you might want to bring slippers or flip-flops.
Please, no smoking, alcohol or drugs in either house or garden.
If you use the garden, please be certain to close and secure the gate - the dogs run free in the backyard during the day.
Please, no food in the bedroom. There are tables in the kitchen, on the back porch and by the pond.
There's almost nothing we (Murphy and Lucy, the rescued greyhounds, and I) like more than sharing our home, The Center for Inspired Living, with new and old friends…
In addition to many other hats, I'm an Interfaith Minister, a Florida Master Gardener, and President of the Palm Beach County Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society, and, for at least part of almost every day, you'll find me tending the ever-changing garden, feeding the goldfish in the pond, photographing the butterflies, pulling the endless weeds or picking fruit in season (mulberries, lemon, mango, peach, jackfruit, jaboticaba, banana, mamey sapote, avocado and more).
I've been eating a raw and living food diet since 1998, and enjoy the proximity to Hippocrates Health Institute, just 1/2 mile away. I am the founder and host of a large, active meetup group - and have been hosting a monthly raw food potluck (and other events) since 2006.
Like many people, I have a plethora of guiding wisdoms. This is one of my favorites, posted on my office wall, from George Bernard Shaw in Man and Superman:
This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I can live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.
I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no “brief candle” to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
So, I look forward to your visit, and hope you will find respite at The Center for Inspired Living. We will do our best to make it a wonderful and peaceful time.
