Do you know any communities of lay Theravada practitioners leaving together in UK or other countries? I know about groups from Triratna Buddhist Community or other religious groups but not Theravadins.
My plan/dream is to live in the forest, close to nature in the peaceful and supportive community. I am thinking about cheap, simple but comfortable accommodation (forest cabin?) combining pro-practice environment with lay modern necessities like having a job or having access to internet for example. The community criteria could be five precepts maybe? Being unable to ordain and leave my family I am thinking about a compromise: to allow me to stay with my wife but to be with my Sangha the same time. Being able to travel reasonable time to work and having a monastery nearby would be perfect.
These are just ideas but I wonder if more people are interested in such endeavour? Maybe you know about existing communities?
