EarthStar Primal Habitat

“The real greatness is in the smallness”.   Rodin

EarthStar Primal Habitat began as our own personal challenge and quest to discover a way to lighten our footprint on the earth. We wanted to create an alternative, sustainable model – a lifestyle of voluntary simplicity with all the basic comforts. We have achieved our goals with very little money in order to prove that it is possible to live a rich, satisfying life by adapting such practices as biogenic diet, simple shelter, organic gardening, studying herbal healing, recycling graywater, composting humanure, catching rainwater and minimizing fuel consumption.

The benefits that we are now enjoying from living this plain, holistic lifestyle is vibrant health, confidence in our ability to provide our basic material needs with a minimum of frustration or struggle. These personal choices have allowed us to gain access to the collective, intuitive knowledge of nature’s ancient wisdom about how man may achieve a lifestyle that is ecologically responsible and in harmony with the planet.

For all those like-minded individuals who have the preconditions to understand the true miracle of the simple life, we hope our EarthStar project will inspire and motivate you to become true pioneers, brave and far-sighted active points in the universe and to create your own unique lifestyle of individual freedom and independent thought.

We dedicate the EarthStar web site to our beautiful planet, the sacred Earthly Mother. May she once again become a garden of peace and beauty for all creation.


We sow seeds of love, to bless the world.
We cultivate quietness, a place to rest.
We create beauty, a place to nourish the spirit.
We practice forgiveness, to release our brothers.
We walk in silence, to heal the mind.
We sing songs of praise, to soothe the heart.
We purify our bodies, that we may serve the Light.
We live simply, that we may experience freedom.
