Our Founder's Journey
Laine Paterson's journey embodies a lifelong commitment to community, the outdoors, holistic well-being and environmental work. Her story began with a love for live music and the outdoors during high school. A pivotal moment at her first Rainbow Gathering deepened her dedication to communal care and the "Shanta Sena" philosophy.
After pursuing a Bachelor's in Biology, she moved to Asheville, embraced intentional communities, primitive skills, and off-the-grid living, while becoming a Wilderness Counselor and a certified Medic. Laine's nursing career, balanced with her role as a mother, enriched her skills, particularly in assessment, and paved the way to her work as an Emergency Response Nurse.
Today, Laine is an entrepreneurial advocate for community building, excelling in counseling and creating a safe and healthy environment at events such as Burns, Flow Arts Festivals, and many more. Her unwavering commitment to core values continues to make a positive impact in the communities she supports.
