My personal interest (Luc Sala)



Maybe it is helpful to explain what attract me in this setup and what I want to do in MySTèR in Breyell. It has to do with my exploration of my inner child, something I have kind of lost during my years as mediaman and entrepreneur. I like to have a place where I can entertain, work and feel free to do explore, mostly my psyche and it’s still little understood traumas, desires, ramblings and corners. I have a small apartment in Amsterdam centre, where I live, but used to have the larger Myster center in Amsterdam where I could receive up to a hundred people, guests from abroad etc. I was, for years, looking for a place to entertain my worldwide circle of friends, as guests, for workshops, concerts, teachings etc. Being able to offer them a nice place, opportunity to schedule workshops, rituals etc. would be a means to stay in contact with this global community of writers, teachers, friends. At one can get an impression of the people I am talking about. Also my extensive library would be an asset for the place, also my audio-video editing equipment for professional productions, my art collection, statues, tools, Tipi etc. I also like to have a working place for writing and editing video, but still in a community setting. Furthermore, I would like to be able to invite my family  (kids, grandchildren) to join me for holidays or special events, do projects with them. I like to travel a lot, but would spend about half the time in the community. I am not interested being the custodian or working there, but would be available for incidental projects and partake in regular chores like housekeeping, fixing things, expansions etc. More at


A place to grow old?

For many people interested in community living, there is the underlying motive that they are looking for a place to grow old in a supportive environment, with friends, freedom and creative and intellectual stimulation. This is an acceptable motive, as long as it’s clear and in the open, but often we hide this beneath altruistic and noble stories about helping humanity. And practically, it means we have to ascertain access for wheelchairs and other adaptations.

For many, the idea to have a place where they can grow old with likeminded people is very attractive, the baby boomers are near that point. It would be best, however, if people of all ages would participate, children are an asset and keep us grounded in reality.



There is the idea, that such a place/center/habitat could be the nucleus of a series of similar habitats based on the same principle, allowing partners to occasionally shift to another location, eg. in Belgium, Germany, France or elsewhere. Once the first place would be operational, this idea could be taken wider, new partners found and more locations, but still with this tribal community idea as a basis. In that way a group of habitats/estates could be formed, allowing more people to participate and more diversity. Setups like the Global Ecotechnics group with locations all around the world kind of operate like that. Especially the creative individuals we are targeting might like that idea, having more homes and places to live and thus a larger and more international community.


Is this a reality? Yes, look at
