Values Exploration Exercise

  • Mar 23, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The process of forming an intentional community begins with an individual and collective exploration of the values we each bring and would like to see expressed in our ideal community. Experience tells us that this is the first essential step to be taken if a community is to be successful, long before considerations of land, buildings, finance, legal structures and governance models are dealt with. In this meeting we will begin this process. A preparatory homework assignment was sent out on the list already. Please contact us if you do not yet have it.

    I'm going to try to make it to this event, but will need to find arrangements for my son closer to the date. Please send me the prep assignment :)

    Even before the question of values (or perhaps included in it), for me a more fundamental question is: why - and for what purpose(s) - do we want to create an IC? We probably each have somewhat different answers, but it seems essential that those of us who share a common purpose or mission come together around that as our organizing principle.

      Hi Clint. We have been addressing this at the beginning of our meetings wherein we ask new persons to share their motivation for seeking out intentional community. Thanks for your comment.
