In 1986 I lived in "Peace City" on the Great Peace March for Global Nuclear Disarmament, a community of 500 people walking from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. for Nuclear disarmament. In the 1990's my family opened up our small homestead to peace activists and Rainbow people, with mixed results. I've spent the last two years living at Madre Grande Monastery in Dulzura. I have recently moved into a single family home in the suburbs.
A community of loving sharing people working toward a common postivie goal, whether or not we actually end up creating an actual intentional community. All communities are transient, whether they last one hundred years or a single night. The most we can do is love each other while we're here and work together to make our community and world a better place.
I've been a member of several intentional communities and studied the "issues" for many years. I'm a writer and gardener with some construction and mainainance skills. I am learning to be silent and listen.
As our social and enviromental systems collapse, indiviuals must learn to rely on each other and not depend on government help or corporate sponsorship. We are all in this together, and we need to all get in this together. We can learn to play nice and share.
Hello. I've been searching for community most of my life, knowing that people coming together is what life is really all about.
