On the threads of learning a lot and the term IC, a few excellent

+ Art of Community, Nov 20-22:  The FIC sponsors this GREAT weekend
conference twice a year to share the accumulated lessons of decades
of community living.

+ Intentional Communities: Lifestyles Based on Ideals   (article)

+ What's True About Intentional Communities: Dispelling the Myths                       (article)

I'd agree that that the value of intentional community is not in the
defining but in the exploration of what it means as part of enhancing
our own lives in community and the experiential learning and fun of
making it happen!
