New York City. People come from all over the world to try and make it here.  Leaving behind a conventional life to come to this extremely unusual and challenging place to pursue their dreams of success. 

For those who do not live here, it is hard to envision what life is really like in New York City . The commute.  The hustle and bustle.  The daily hamster wheel of activity and all the obstacles to overcome - just to make it through each day. 

In no other place is it so difficult to get to work (at a job you may hate), do your laundry, get your groceries, walk your dog, pay your bills and at the same time try to pursue your dreams and beyond that - maybe meet someone.

Yet those of us who live here wouldn't trade it for the world. It's the ultimate love/hate relationship. You tell yourself you are through with this City and are leaving, but a week later this City sends you flowers with a sweet enclosure and you relent and vow to stay.

The AVALON of legend was a center of teaching and initiation, a place of prosperity, social harmony, healing and engagement in the creative process.  A place of vital energies and deepened perceptions, a place, it is said, where the imagination filtered through the physical fabric of the land.

 We at AVALON are passionate about creating and maintaining such a place.
