Endings and Beginnings —Issue #157

Our latest Communities issue on Endings and Beginnings 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 Winter 2012 issue focuses on Endings and Beginnings. We hear about the challenges and growth that happen when the reins of community leadership pass from one generation to the next (or don't), and when groups undergo other major changes. We learn about personal transitions in and out of community, and about how both short– and long–term community can provide life–transforming experiences for participants. We consider the regenerative power of community in a world full of endings and beginnings. 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.
