Why on earth could you not call a community cohousing if it had a 
spiritual (or any other) commonality?

This does not alter the typical factors of 
self-management, commitment to group process and participation
intentional maximizing of chances to socialize and network
mutual aid
private homes, common amenities
opportunity for community dining etc.
mix of private and shared resources

It does not matter to me what people call their type of community-- the 
important thing is that it happens and more and more people get the 
benefits. Whether you are "diverse races and incomes" or "pagan vegans", 
you are free to define your community, and membership will come from 
those who are drawn to it.
