What’s new on the cohousing front in the North Bay area? Already home to FrogSong Cohousing, a thriving community over ten years in the making, a vision for a new network of cohousing projects has emerged. North Bay Cohousing at Cotati has a .85-acre site under contract on Cotati’s downtown edge, and will use this presentation to gauge project interest.
Aurora DeMarco, with the Fellowship for Intentional Community
In December 2013, my daughter decided to visit Twin Oaks, a long established, egalitarian income sharing community in Louisa, Virginia. Her hope was to find a community that would support her commitment to living sustainably, connecting with the earth on a spiritual level, and supporting her egalitarian cooperative values. Her initial reports were tentative, “Is this how I want to live my life?” “Can I imagine making my life with these strangers and their unfamiliar norms?”
........When I think of what makes for a good conference, I think about the feeling one gets after going to a “good” one. It is a feeling of having been guided in the right direction. Great conferences make you feel transformed ....If you are thinking about living in an intentional community, I strongly recommend attending this year's communities conference: http://communitiesconference.org/.
