Radiance is a small, quiet community (pop. 90-100) about 20 miles southwest of downtown Austin. It was originally founded as “an ideal village practicing Transcendental Meditation™ programs.” More recently it’s been home as well to families with children in Austin Waldorf School, spiritually-oriented people, and just plain folks.
The neighborhood itself is made up of 34 homes (and 7 undeveloped lots) on about 65 acres. 18 residences are duplexes or townhomes, and the rest are detached single family homes. It includes a 70-foot wide meditation dome, a community pool, and many acres of community-owned greenbelt.
Community potlucks are held at the pool alternating Sundays in the summer, and the community joins together for other events too.
To keep you cool on these hot days, try a 10 minute video of the Radiance boat ride occuring July 7, 2009. The video can also be viewed or downloaded at YouTube Video which may give a better quality of viewing or you can try changing the size of your view window.
Or if you prefer minus the video, here are the higher quality pictures.
