Bob Aitken of the Maui Zendo in Haiku, a Zen Buddhist center, is looking for an "Aquarius family" to live rent free in a nearby building and conduct community-service projects.
According to Aitken, his group, "is looking for a family of four to six people, perhaps with children, who are committed to one another and who have a creative gig together.
"We offer a place where they can live and get it on. They would have use of three bedrooms, kitchen, and a huge living/work room.
"They would share the house with two high-energy fellows who would occupy the forth bedroom and would assist with the program.
"The house is already known as a free 'crash' and this would continue on a controlled basis.
"There would be no rent, so the family would be expected to include community services within its activities. These might include a rap center, free-school art classes or ecology projects.
"We hope emphasis would be more on creativity than capital development.
"The accommodations are crude but adequate. The weather is wet and muddy during the winter months. There is no hot water and no electricity.
"Please write in detail about yourself. We would like to hear from a well-established family that has been successful elsewhere."
Letters may be sent to Bob Aitken, RR-1, Box 220, Haiku, Maui, Hawaii 96708.
