CONCEPT


A new concept in future living…
as represented in the sustainable lifestyle envisioned

by the members of Rockspire

Nestled on 125 acres in the heart of the Ozark Plateau is the beginning of an Intentional Community called Rockspire….. the perfect setting for a new concept in future living. The combined influences of Nature, Art, and Architecture are the inspiration behind Rockspire; and they are further enhanced by incorporating the latest technologies to enable our enviable, sustainable lifestyle.

For over 35 years Rockspire co-founders George Myers and Michael Johnson have partnered in multiple business ventures, and now they are focused on Rockspire near Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

As Dallas based architects and developers, George and Michael have implemented a wide variety of small to large scale projects throughout the United States and around the world and therefore bring a range of talents, perspectives, and philosophies to this project.

In addition, all community members are continually participating in the creation, and implementation, of this grand experiment we call Rockspire.

COMMUNITY


Human beings are not meant to live solitary lives…
talking, touching, and relating to others
is essential to our well-being.
These facts apply to all of us, from birth to death.”

The Rockspire Community is a diverse group of people who appreciate the natural beauty experience of Rockspire. It’s not a cult, commune, or movement… but merely a community of individuals who are striving to create a sustainable lifestyle concept for future living.

Our events, developments, plans, and thoughts are chronicled in our quarterly newsletter – The Rockspirian, and on the Rockspire Facebook page.

Events at Rockspire are posted in the calendar below, and we invite all who are interested to join us.

INSPIRATION



Nature, Art, and Architecture

it’s as simple and complex as that

NATURE
35 acres of mountaintop pastures with breathtaking views contrasts with the remaining 90 acres of forests and cliffs cascading down the lush and diverse mountainside.

ART
Performances in the MobbyMac Carriage House, natural amphitheater, retreats, artists and craftsmen working in the Rockspire workshop and studio.

ARCHITECTURE
High quality architectural details respecting the relationships between the structures and their natural setting, are the basic principles we follow. ~ Quality & Balance of Life
