>Just wondering if anyone out there has ever attended the Esalen cohousing >workshop (Big Sur) listed in their current catalog? The weekend in Esalen alone was worth the price of admission. Thirteen of us attended, including some of the Esalen personnel. After class, most of us gathered together in one of the large sulfer spring-fed hottubs overlooking the ocean and continued the discussion. There was a slide show of how most of us live (before cohousing) which was both amusing and tragic. One of the longer sessions dealt with the sequence of steps from site location to moving in, with a rough breakdown on land development costs, critical timing, etc. Don't forget to get a toxic soil test! Time was spent designing a common house with limited resources. The gun collection issue was used to illustrate conflict resolution. As in almost any group, there were many connections to be made and talents to be uncovered. One of us was a mortgage analyst. Another has already purchased a motel in rural Oregon that could become cohousing. Katie (Kathryn McCamant of the Cohousing Company) is not currently interested in being on any e-mailing list at the moment, even though I offered to contribute a modem. I will be faxing her the "Best of COHOUSING-L" from time to time, so she may join us eventually. -- Martin Tracy mtracy [at] netcom.com Los Angeles, CA
