Dreaming of intergenerational living

miyuki housing ad 2018

Hey there! I’m miyuki! I’m an artist, organizer, and academic living in Oakland. I’m dreaming of intergenerational living. Calling in all my plants and human allies and magic to manifest my dream home by January 1, 2019.

As you may have heard through the grapevine, I want to be a parent. I’m looking for a new home where I could raise a baby and community. As I’ve learned to do through indigenous teachings, I am thinking the universe and you for the magical home that has yet to emerge. I am making this with the faith that I will find the perfectly imperfect home and community to live with. Thank you for being a part of this journey by keeping me and future baby in your mind and heart. Please contact me at HEYMIYUKI@GMAIL.COM with your East Bay housing visions, wisdom, people I should contact, and good vibez.

My vision:

  • garden
  • magical/sacred kitchen
  • playtime
  • shared meditation & meal time
  • singing and dancing
  • shared power
  • clear communication
  • close to nature
  • lots of natural light
  • shared childcare
  • clean and minimalist common space

Open to all of these options & more:

  • co-housing
  • land trust
  • building a cob or natural materials house on someone’s land or bought land
  • buying a house with folks
