Community Seeker

Hi All:

I liked what I read on your website. I would like to begin an email and/or phone dialog to explore in depth what you are looking for in potential community members. If it appears we may have enough commonalities to warrant my visiting, I would welcome that opportunity.

I have lived in community for years and believe that adequate resources are available to feed, clothe, and shelter every human being on the planet. It is our collective self-centeredness which hinders the global movement towards a just society that embraces working toward the "common good of all"
...a just society...healthy food, sustainable development, ecological restoration,and universal human rights.

The challenge is to be willing to subjugate my ego enough to be able to "see" what truly is for the benefit of the "greater good" and change within myself that which obstructs the true such process is...

So, I do not want to "preach to the choir" nor convert you. My desire is to give you a little snapshot of my thoughts and begin an exploration of our compatiblity potential.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Ganas Court Case

I think there is grounds for appealing this case to a higher court.

Skyhouse is looking for an experienced gardener to join us in growing food for our table for the 2009 season. Our ideal person would have some experience in growing organic vegetables and a desire to organize and manage the garden from April to November. Ability to work independently and collaboratively a must. We have currently been growing and storing most of our vegetables for our group of approximately 8 and hope to continue that this year.

Validation Day and Appreciative Planning Process

In February of every year is a holiday that most of the country observes called "Valentine's Day." At East Wind Community in the late 1970s an adaptation of this holiday was begun by Steve (Che'), later taken to Twin Oaks Community by Christy when he moved there in the early 1980s. Steve's original inspiration may have come from the practice of re-evaluation co-counseling which was being practiced at East Wind at the time, which among other things encourages the validation by others (specifically the co-counselor) of an individual's feelings. The Validation Day tradition may have since spread to other intentional communities. If any readers are aware of other communities adopting this tradition I invite them to share the story.
