Maricopa County (/ˌmærˈkpə/ marr-i-koh-pə) is a county located in the south-central part of the U.S. state of Arizona. As of the 2010 census, its population was 3,817,117, making it the most populous county in the state, andthe fourth-most populous in the United States. It is more populous than 23 states. The county seat is Phoenix, the state capital and sixth-most populous city in the country.

Maricopa County is included in the Phoenix-Mesa-Glendale, AZ Metropolitan Statistical Area.

In 2010, the county's center of population was the city of Mesa.

The population explosion is evident in a 2007 Forbes study which ranked four of Maricopa County's municipalities in the top ten fastest-growing cities in the nation. Those included Buckeye as the second-fastest-growing city, Surprise and Goodyear as 3rd and 4th, and Avondale as 9th. All four of these cities are located in the growing "West Valley", which is the area of Maricopa County to the west of the city of Phoenix.

Maricopa County was named after the Maricopa Indians. There are five Indian reservations located in the county. The largest of these are the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (east of Scottsdale) and the Gila River Indian Community (south of Phoenix).



We will be two miles east of this highway - right at the upper (north) edge of the county.

Interstate 17 (I-17) is an Interstate Highway located entirely within the state ofArizona, United States. I-17's southern terminus lies within Phoenix, atInterstate 10, and its northern terminus is in Flagstaff, at Interstate 40. The majority of I-17 is known as the Arizona Veterans Highway. In the Phoenix metropolitan area, it is mostly known as the Black Canyon Freeway, however the southern 4.16 miles (6.69 km) is part of the Maricopa Freeway. The portion of the highway south of Cordes Lakes was built along the alignment of SR 69, while the northern part was built along old SR 79's alignment. I-17 is one of the most scenic Interstate Highways as it gains more than a mile in altitude between Phoenix at 1,117 feet (340 m) and Flagstaff at 7,000 feet (2,100 m). The highway features several scenic view exits along its route that overlook the many mountains and valleys found in northern Arizona.


 If anyone remembers the Phoenix Lights event of March, 1997, this is the place it happened..

I note:
(Because IRS has deemed us not eligible to be nonprofit except the church, we must operate each venue separately as a corporation)



The overall vision is to create a community of people who wish to live together as a group, all of whom have similar viewpoints of spirituality, health, a sense of creativity, and desire for knowledge that includes raising the consciousness of humanity, not just filling the head with historical facts, some of which may not even be true, but a knowing that one can create a bright and purposeful future for oneself, starting at a very young age, all the way to those who are elderly and still wish to participate in life to the fullest.

To that end, we require funds to purchase a large parcel of farm or ranch land which we will use for gardens, orchards, and farming our own food to provide reasonable security for the residents from birth to the inevitable passing or leaving to a nursing home, if someone cannot be cared for and if they need a hospital setting.

What is different about us?

All who live with us, will also work with us knowing that everything they do benefits not only themselves, but their own families and loved ones.

We are going to build all our residences and large venues from concrete domes.

Here is a page of examples:

These type of buildings are guaranteed to last at least 500 years despite storms, tornadoes, straight winds, rain, bugs or fire.  They are impervious to all manner of destructive forces.  With that kind of construction the cost comes way down.  Once solar electricity is installed, the cost goes down even more.  Solar electricity pays for itself over time.  We also plan to install alternative wind generated electricity for each individual building in case of  protracted possibility of little to no sunlight for a period of time.



The very first operation to be built will be the greenhouses, barns, workshops, and housing for chickens, ducks, peacocks, goats, horses, alpacas, long haired sheep, which will provide organic milk, eggs, and wool for weaving and knitting.

Beyond the animals will be the farm fields and gardens.  Orchards and herb gardens will be planted in large spaces alongside the roads and provide privacy and noise abatement as well.


We will be growing every healthy food you can find in your local grocery store, plus some items not normally found locally, which we can grow ourselves in controlled atmosphere with special care.


We plan to grow as much food as possible without using dirt - such as in coconut fibre, and perlite and humus, fertilized with fish emulsion which will come from our own fish tanks in the greenhouses.  Those healthy fish will also be served in our restaurants when they become large enough.


Our charitable mission will be to provide free lunches to our school, donate free food in season to the low-income and elderly who participate in our long term heath project, and to donate excess food in season to local food pantries.




To ensure as long and healthy a life as possible, our health center is instituting a research program on longevity, which residents and/or the public can participate in, where we will track the health and longevity of people from generation to generation, using natural foods, exercise, and healthful supplements, plus alternative modalities of healing.  


We will build a raw food treatment center for men and women who will stay with us for at least two weeks to detoxify their bodies and learn to eat a more healthful diet to maintain their bodies once they leave our care.   These treatment centers will house 8 people per session.


This research project will be ongoing from birth to death with detailed records kept for each individual to refer to whenever they wish.  The participants can also use the care of their own physicians and get their blood tested and related therapies along the way to ensure their best possible health. As a special added feature, we will be focusing on longevity, upgrade, and repair of dna both physical, and spiritually - or esoterically for whoever wishes to participate.


Along with this endeavor, we plan to assist individuals, who wish to participate, in the health and care and prevention of brain diseases such as Alzheimer's and dimentia.

The health center will also offer a covered exercise pool that is Olympic size, a soaking pool, saunas, exercise rooms, including the most modern equipment, showers, treatment offices of varied healing modalities, with professional practitioners,  a free meditation room, a healing sound chamber, plus crystals and health supplements will be available for purchase in the lobby of the building.  Water and juice will be available in the exercise areas as well.





As a non denominational spiritual center, honoring all positive faiths, our Sabbath will be on Saturday, as it was in the olden days before the crucifixion, and will hold a variety of program of teachings, worship, and praise songs. 


We plan to have a variety of missions that people feel called to serve in, one of which will be a home for unwed mothers awaiting childbirth, along with a healing ceremony for young women, or even elderly who still feel guilty for having abortions in their lives.

Other missions will also be developed according to the calling of the people who wish to serve.


We will also house a large bookstore featuring texts of all faiths, plus metaphysical and spiritual.

The spiritual and community buildings will both hold large and small conferences and seminars, drawing public visitors as well as to be used for the people in residence for a spiritual setting

Besides conferences and seminars, the spiritual building will hold music concerts, musical contests for aspiring musicians and singers alike.  People will find this to be a joyful place to be and will enjoy the private classes we offer as well.


We shall endeavor to locate a positive thinking spiritual person to direct sing-a-longs, perform weddings and funerals if necessary and lead the community along spiritual paths each individual desires to hold dear.


In addition to the above, private classes will be taught to people who wish to know the truths brought down from the Essenes of Israel taught for thousands of years before the arrival of the 'Teacher of Righteousness', whom we call Yeshua or Jesus which he also taught when he went public after living and teaching inside the Essene communities of Qumran and other communities associated with it.

There will be large meditation gardens on both sides of the spiritual center.  On one side we will feature labyrinths for walking meditation as well as seating for others, and on the other side will be Native American space for drumming and Pow Wows, and a Native American museum behind that with exhibits and featuring many different tribal dwellings.





Kitchen number one named Dee's Delights will be open from 6 a.m. to 12 midnight 365 days a year with rotating crews so that one can get fed a meal whenever they get hungry  This will have a Mom & Pop ambience, serving organic meals or snacks.


In the main restaurant which is named Ahkenaton's Place, we will provide dinners with a more formal theme.  The plan is to have this restaurant be Egyptian themed, with waiters and waitresses dressed in costume of the period.  With this theme will be provided hieroglyphic language and pictures painted on the walls to teach the public a little about the history of Egypt.


Chief Jim's Place


This room is named in honor of Joe Mason's family's restaurant, dancehall, and bar which was located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, which was burnt to the ground in the 1940's, killing a beloved relative. The walls will have paintings of famous Indian Chiefs and other scenes of historical value.


Here will be a space for the elderly to meet and have coffee, tea, or juice and play games or cards, space for little girls to have dance classes, space for martial arts lessons, and in the evening, we will present live bands and/or Karaoke 7 nights a  week for everyone to enjoy.  The bar will be non-alcoholic so no one needs to worry about driving home safely at  2 a.m.


In a side room, so as not to interfere with others, will be a series of pool tables and fooz ball tables, and equipment for sale for this fine sport.


In the main conference center when seminars, conferences, meetings, and weddings are not being held, we will have BINGO nights as well, and with a little enthusiasm, we might do some old-fashioned square dancing.


The community  building will also have a large public pool with fees due yearly to pay for upkeep and safety guards.




Our private school with special classes starting at the age of pre-birth for pregnant mothers, and then when the infant is at the beginning of crawling stage to be sure that brain development happens properly in a balanced manner.  We intend to assist ADHD/ADD kids to develop in a healthy way - without drugs if at all possible, and using live animals to assist in this, as well as home grown organic healthy food served at school.  


Regular classes will be held from age 2 through grade 6 in the beginning. In later years we may add grades 7 and 8 if possible, but that is for future development.  We will also be teaching accelerated learning which is not taught in public school. Our goal is to assist children to raise their consciousness, not just fill their minds with facts. Children need to be taught to have open minds and be aware of the greater reality of life, how to give and receive love, as well as to love and appreciate themselves.  The children will have a wide range of play equipment, be taught to garden and raise food, and to love and care animals.  Records will be kept on each child to show their development, not just in comparison with other children for grades, but for themselves so they know they are achieving what they themselves wish to learn about.  As an adjunct, we will endeavor to support parents who wish to home school their own children with books, school supplies and whatever else they need to provide a good education according to state law.

Beyond the school and Health Center will be a large Planetarium  building, where astronomy and astrology will be taught, plus an outdoor telescope which can be used at night to scan the stars.   The Planetarium will feature programs in which the stars can be seen in motion on the ceiling, while seated in comfy chairs along with lectures and/or music.  If the public wishes to have UFO watches, we can accommodate that as well and have discussions about it.

Next to the Health center will be sixteen shops where classes will be taught in various crafts by professionals and also where residents can sell their own personal handmade items if they wish.

We are planning 70 to 100 residences for long term employees, with the possibility of more as the project grows.  Long term we should be able to employ a minimum of 100 full time and part-time people, and will also provide internships for the local high school and college students in the area.



Something not previously planned for, and since the winters are cool to sometimes snowy, we can develop activities for the winter clime once we find out how cold and for how long it persists in winters.  We could do skiing, snowboarding, skating on a manmade ice rink, and provide a warm, indoors place for enjoying hot cocoa, coffee or tea afterward in a warm-up house.

As a gated community, security will be paramount

This plan was given to Dee Finney in dreams and visions over a long time, starting in 1990 and it is up to other visionaries to work with her to complete the project as it is not a one person job, but meant to inspire humanity long term to form harmonious living space and uplift the consciousness of mankind over all through experience and example.

The project has been developing deliberately slowly to gather a base of well trained people who are interested in the idea and willing to come together to achieve the vision which is widespread around the country.  The project is a registered Intentional Community, non-profit, 'green' and 'solar with land usage to be kept in grassland, gardens, and orchards, while still providing space for work, school, play, and spiritual life settings.

Each Executive Officer and Director has been chosen for the specific skills they bring with them to help achieve the overall plan.  All are professionals in their own field of expertise before they even come together to form a cohesive whole as an umbrella under which all the other skilled people will perform their public duties in the various venues to assist others as well.

Hand in hand, we will all gather together to serve humanity each according to their own needs.
