Inspired Community, Intentional Work Place

Our intention for creating day-use access and co-working space at Ashevillage Sanctuary is to: 1) cross-pollinate and inspire each other, 2) provide a sanctuary experience for community-minded people, projects and events, 3) bring together and support awesome people who are walking their talk in our community and the world, and 4) create a viable business model for Ashevillage Sanctuary, of which co-working is one part of our greater whole. We are inspired to be offering you the sanctuary space and co-creating a place for you to focalize your brilliance.
