I was glad to hear several cohousing folks were interested in the list server about "voluntary simplicity." A healthy trend, I'd say. So, I finally found the instructions for getting to the VS list -- attached below. There's a lot of interesting, thoughtful, heartful discussion on the VS list, but I'll warn you there are also a few bozos and some occasional strident BS. But when your "BS detector" rings, just activate your "bozo filter" and hit your delete key when you see a bozo's name in the "from" line. There is, I feel, a powerful intersection between voluntary simplicity and cohousing. Living cooperatively can be a significant way to downscale consumerism. I'd also like to put in a heartfelt, uncompensated plug the Context Institute's quarterly hard copy magazine, In Context, "a journal of hope, sustainability and change." I've subscribed for a few years. Although I discontinued many mags I used to get as not worth the ecological cost of the paper, I kept "In Context" because there's a lot of hopeful wisdom in each issue and the information ages well. Each issue has a theme that is covered by many authors from many different aspects. The editors and publishers are hip to cohousing and intentional communities -- they live/have lived at Winslow Cohousing on Bainbridge Island across the sound from Seattle.

For the most part, the subscription/unsubscription software is working well. We get about 20 automatic subscriptions/unsubscriptions each week. To unsubscribe, please carefully send the following e-mail message: To: incontext-request [at] power.net Subject: <doesn't matter> Text: unsubscribe If you use upper case rather than lower case, add a period, etc. etc., it is NOT going to work, so please be careful. I cannot yet unsubscribe/subscribe anyone remotely, so I have to take the request to the internet provider on a case by case basis, which takes a lot of time. If your subscription/unsubscription fails, please carbon copy to me the response you get from the incontext-request mailing program.
