The Tir Tairngire Foundation - Draft Proposal

Author: LoreCaster
Posted: August 12th. 2012
Times Viewed: 2,328

Worship comes in many forms. Some pagans practice ritual, teach classes, offer divination performances or simply live a good life. I prefer to give something back to our wonderful world Whom has given us so very much. To this end, my gentle paganfolk, I bring you the next phase of my pagan ecovillage community: The Tir Tairngire Foundation.

The Tir Tairngire Foundation, once simply known as the Tir Tairngire Project, has evolved into a new phase of existence. Once the brainchild of one man, which became a labour of love shared by hundreds of professionals over it's ten-year journey, it has become something so much more real. It's new mission is to take the information and direction discovered over a solid decade of pure research, haphazardly collected and mutated and analyzed and twisted, and to collate the material into cohesive journal articles with the intent to publish them in monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly collections of cited, sourced, comprehensive reports on all things from products, to book reviews, to engineering schematics, social science proposals and psychological projections of life living in all types of communal environments. The mission is to construct a database of professional, reputable and serviceable articles that pass the standards of the accredited, peer reviewed journals of sociology, psychology, engineering and similar.

Several milestones will exist with this particular privately run publication, which include but are not limited to the collection of a board of directors for the organization, a review board to examine all articles submitted for publication, the cross-referencing of these articles with their sources and the editing for content, format and reference styles. Professionals representing each of the social sciences, and each of the applied sciences so that each of these faculties are considered and examined in all research. These professionals, initially volunteers, will have the capacity to contribute unique knowledge and personalities to the project, and add validity to the efforts of the Foundation.

Initial publications will be free and in EBook format. Each text will be produced professionally and in regular intervals. Each volume will include instructions for those willing to submit their own research, and will have a section devoted to the transparency of the organization with contact names, histories, and so on. By providing a free service to a community who's focus is on egalitarian decision making and contributions that differ from that of the corporate machine, submissions will become the next natural evolution of a free product of this nature. All submissions, once reviewed, will be available on the Foundation website free of charge as having participated in the project, and the finest submissions will be published in our eBook editions.

As the natural progression of the syndication evolves, continuing submissions will require simultaneous volumes in more specific fields, including one for engineering drawings, one for psychological submissions, one for sociology, for legal jargon and compliance, and so on. Proposals have already been submitted for short-fiction journals of professional writing with the goal of developing an ephemeral vision of life in such environments, making use of the formal article material, such as tools or social theories developed in more formal journals.

The series of journals will be destined to create a publicly accessible database of information, reviewed and studied by the selection board of volunteers and authorized by the board of directors, also volunteers, and provide both the tools and the schemas to design ecovillages, sustainable settlements, intentional communities and communal infrastructures of all varieties in any climate or jurisdiction. Late-stage articles will discuss case studies for given climates in given governmental systems with given resources and assets, organized, developed, and proven using sources and providing contact information where supplemental data may be needed. The proper facilitation and implementation of this research will provide instructions for a variety of improvements to be made on a small scale of a single home or lifestyle, up into the municipal or regional scale when examined properly.

The foundation's long-term goals include the construction of a headquarters site, built upon the research collected and published in the series of regular issues. Currently sited for a tract of land in St. Fintans, Newfoundland, donated to the organization by it's founder, this 17.8 hectare property will house the culmination of over a decade of research and prove the theories prescribed through the article submissions.

It has been proposed to provide all material free of charge via eBook format, and I would love a print-edition for a sticker price designed to cover costs. Having a library shelf lined off with editions, growing month-by-month, would be a rewarding experience indeed, and only the finest material of the submission slush-pile would make it to the published ranks. Fear not, however, for I would wish to have a 'slush pile' section on the website, so that all submissions could be viewed once finalized, sourced or not. Citations give our work credibility, after all, and that is truly what this is all about. The validation this will provide for the cause will be tremendous, and such validation will provide vindication for those who have the will to walk along side us, to the beat of their own drum.

While, for the sake of a multifaceted readership, the level of academic attention to detail would be of paramount importance, and a specific pagan journal would be provided for spirituality. The ideal result would be a series of journals for our mission, one for anthropology, one for sociology, spirituality, engineering, botany, psychology, law, economy and so on. Through literary and referenced diversity we shall find strength, through collective cooperation will find unity; through hard work we will find success and make a difference everlasting.

Bless you all for visiting, I hope that we can work together, accepting submissions and spreading the knowledge, free of charge, of how to live a cleaner, greener, leaner life for as long as we have been blessed with it.

Goddess walk with all of us.
