Village Mastermind 2024



There are already many emerging startup community projects. Even a small amount of support can determine whether they are successful and establish as long-term communities, or fall apart in the first 3 years. 



A world class master course that covers the foundational topics of designing a regenerative community with premier teachers, comprehensive curriculum, unique programming, and extensive templates.


It is a transformative, hands-on learning experience that focuses on practical application and action over theory in order to accelerate a village builder’s journey towards an established, thriving community. The course is also crafted to be training as part of a vocational school, supporting careers in regenerative neighborhood consulting and development.


Where: Tulum, Mexico

When: April 1-30th



The production and facilitation team includes Nicole Reese (Regen Tribe and Terrenity), Nico Alcala (re:build and Design Science Studio), Joshua Smith (BIOM and Lightsmith Design), and Ines Castagnet (Global Ecovillage Network)


The course welcomes vision holders, village founder teams, landowners, people with existing projects (hotels, retreat centers, etc.) they want to transform into a community, and people who want to certify to become a consultant in regenerative neighborhood building.
