We invite you to participate in a cocreative visioning process to discern how to manifest StewardHeirShip of this extraordinary property that consists of 134 acres with several bodies of water near Sedona, Arizona including a 5,000 square foot lodge (with 10 bedrooms, dining room, commercial kitchen, lounge), 4 houses, pastures, barn, stables, shooting range, trout pond, etc.
There are many individuals, non-profit organizations and companies
interested in this one-of-a-kind property.

This web page is being created as a result of an initial meeting of interested individuals who represent StewardHeirShip, LLC, the Community Economic Development Resource Center, Inc., Universal StewardHeirShip, Inc. and CENTER SPACE, Inc. (the non-profit Center for Spiritual, Personal And Community Enlightenment)
What is being envisioned is a possible "joint venture" among several of the interested parties that would incorporate most if not all of the 8 possible ways listed above. In addition, the proposed project would incorporate the principles and practices of Community Economic Development, coproduction of periodic fundraising events in surrounding cities (such as Sedona, Prescott, Flagstaff and Phoenix); publication of a paperback book inviting cocreative participation in the process of discerning and fulfilling the highest and best use of the property, launching a Crowd Funding campaign on 1 of the major Reward Platforms, and getting positioned to launch a separate Equity Crowd Funding campaign later as soon as those provisions of the JOBS Act are approved by the SEC.
Following are some of the proposed initial Action Steps:
Share this page and concepts with potential collaborators to determine to what extent there is alignment.
Develop a S.O.P.A.D.A Proposal (Subject, Objective, Proposal, Advantages; Disadvantages and Action Steps)
Drafting the outline for the publication inviting cocreative collaboration that would include chapters on: Overview of Social Entrepreneurship (including the “Quadruple Bottom Line) of Purpose, People, Planet and Profitability); Introduction to StewardHeirShip (which incorporates Service, Stewardship, Sustainability and Spiritual principles, practices and values); Community Economic Development Principles and Practices (which include Self-Help, Empowerment and Capacity-Building); Community Land Trusts; Intentional Communities; Conscious Sustainable Living; Benefit Corporations and B Corps; The JOBS Act and Equity Crowd Funding; Introduction to Soda Springs Ranch as an Exercise; Invitation to Participate in Cocreative Visioning and Strategic Planning; Interest and Participation Survey and Featured Resources.
Develop a Power Point Presentation on the proposed project (as well as videos)
Draft a Executive Summary of a Business Plan for the proposed project
Revise an existing Investment Marketing Memorandum for Ultimate Destiny Network, Inc. that will allow the project to generate up to $5M in equity investments
Develop a Master Fundraising Plan that would explore possible funding via grants, donations, contracts and Program Related Investments from Private Foundations. (We already have agreement from Cornucopia Community Advocates, our 501 (c)(3) Fiscal Sponsor for CENTER SPACE to serve as the lead non-profit).
Create a Tentative Project Workplan that would demonstrate how a series of monthly, quarterly and annual events (mostly offsite) could generate 100+% of the operating expenses of the proerty (and even debt service if a mortgage was taken out. For example, we could coproduce seminars, workshops and conferences in surrounding communities with some of the 50 recipients of the Ultimate Destiny Hall of Fame Award. We already have strategic relationships with all of them and we have produced highly successful events with many of them.
The main events would be held offsite where larger numbers of people could participate and thereby generate greater revenue to support our project. The featured presenter(s) would stay in the Lodge as our guests. In some instances, a small number of participants at the larger event would be invited to spend a day or two onsite with the presenter. That smaller higher priced event would generate additional revenue. It is entirely possible that we could generate as much as $100,000 to $250,000 net profit from larger events.

While I dearly love the Property and would like to live there, help manage it for the benefit of the larger community, I am more interested in some other P words.

Priorities include consideration of:
I propose that those of us who resonate with this vision of collaborating explore various resources and techniques for Cocreative Visioning and Strategic Planning. Some of us regularly practice Spiritual Visioning exercises taught in New Thought Centers. For example, we might contemplate and share insights we receive as we turn within for answers to questions such as:
Then as each individual shares the insights, images and ideas they received in response to the questions, we collectively consider the final question:
One exercise we now invite you to help us complete is to adapt this vision process to help us discern what the property itself desires for its utilization. Please let us know if and how you might like to contribute your love, light, wisdom and expertise in helping discern the "ultimate destiny" of this extraordinary property.
We also invite you to participate in our initial project survey at http://survey.constantcontact.com/survey/a07e8qc89oqhpsqmltn/start
