"That doesn’t mean there’s anything inherently wrong with owning material possessions. Today’s problem seems to be the meaning we assign to our stuff: we tend to give too much meaning to our things, often forsaking our health, our relationships, our passions, our personal growth, and our desire to contribute beyond ourselves. Allows yourself to make decisions more consciously, more deliberately."

Time expanded, ideas were formed, matured, and came to fruition. I haven’t been able to delve this deeply into my work in many years. This was a gift whose value can’t be measured. — A Shogren, artist/architect, California, USA
Time spent with AJ in his studio opened my eyes to new ways of expanding my work while experiencing a more creative and minimal environment. Then I returned to my own studio where a whole series of work came to me. His advice on color, creative minimalism and composition brought a new maturity to my work and life. Plus, we had fun traveling the antique city and countryside while meeting locals over music & local culinary delights. — J Roll, artist/ writer, Switzerland
With time away from our hectic schedules, we have joined AJ & Jude often to play and continue our culinary excursions, film productions, art making, art gallery exhibitions, singing & performances. We spent our time refining our creative works, performing and developing business ideas with support from other Collective members. Results were enhanced by their feedback. Highly appreciated & FUN! JC Bustamante, mixed media artist & film photographer - Chile/EU & A Frost, artist, actress, singer - Germany/Chile/EU
We had AJ & Jude and their collective design and engineering team plan and construct our properties. Most were tired and ugly. The land was amazing, but what was possible on my budget with old buildings or difficult building sites? They came up with solutions we hadn't even thought of integrating Eco friendly principles & Nature while finding the people and products to do what we wanted. AND, we were the lead designer on our projects. When we wanted adjustments they listened to our ideas and we created together. HIRE THIS TEAM. It was fun and very profitable! M. Sacks, CEO, CPA - USA & Mexico
