Community Wisdom for Everyday Life—Issue #159

Our new Communities issue on Community Wisdom for Everyday Life is proving to be one of our most popular issues. If you haven't seen it yet, get a copy by subscribing or ordering a sample now!

Our Summer 2013 issue focuses on Community Wisdom for Everyday Life. We learn from current and ex-communitarians what lessons they have learned in intentional community that are applicable to life in the wider world, and also what wisdom intentional communities can glean from the larger society. Contributors discuss how to cultivate community-orientation in diverse settings, and we also continue our "Busting the Myth" decision-making series. Please join us!

Communities Magazine

Since 1972, Communities has been the primary resource for information, issues, and ideas about intentional communities in North America - from urban co-ops to cohousing groups to ecovillages to rural communes. Communities now also focuses on creating and enhancing community in the workplace, in nonprofit or activist organizations, and in neighborhoods, with enhanced coverage of international communities as well. We explore the joys and challenges of cooperation in its many dimensions.

Please subscribe today! If you're already a subscriber, tell your friends about us, or better yet give a gift subscription.

The Communities magazine website features a selection of articles from our quarterly magazine online. We post a handful of articles from each issue so you can get a taste of what Communities offers.
