Enso Village- A Year of Growth- 2023 Kendal Annual Report

Enso Village reached new milestones this year, growing increasingly close to
welcoming residents to its 15-acre campus in Healdsburg, California. The Zen-inspired
community brings a desired option to Sonoma County, redefining aging with a
focus on the joys of nature, environmental stewardship and healthy living.

In August of 2022, the community marked a momentous milestone as it celebrated
its topping-off ceremony. More than 100 people gathered at a ceremonial beam
signing to signify the final piece of framing.

Future residents stood alongside Rosemary Jordan, CEO of Enso Village; Susan O’Connell,
Spiritual Director of Enso Village; and Linda Ruth Cutts, Senior Dharma Teacher for the
San Franciso Zen Center.

The palpable excitement of residents heightened the event as they embarked on
the next step to call this community home. The ceremony signified the fruition of years
of dedicated effort and thoughtful planning, highlighting the community’s commitment
to treading lightly on the land through every corner of the property.

In addition, it brought to life the photos and videos that have been regularly sent and shared on
social media and websites to keep residents informed.

Moreover, Enso Village began recruiting several pivotal positions for the people
function, spiritual life, and resident experience this year. This Zen-inspired and
Kendal-aligned community represents a concordance of values and interests.

The Board and Executive Leadership have declared that being an ethical, supportive
and purpose-driven employer is equally important to its commitment to creating a
path-breaking experience for residents.

Rosemary Jordan, CEO of Enso Village, shares, “Team members are more than
employees at Enso Village. They will become part of the community, alongside their
teammates and residents, to achieve a more mindful life. We are intentional about
bringing people of different backgrounds and perspectives together in 2023 and
supporting a multilingual, belongingfocused

As residents arrive in 2023, Enso Village is poised to usher in a new era of aging infused
with diverse stories, experiences and people.
