I thought it would be useful to post them on the list, but don't feel it's my right to do this, as it is a Tierra Nueva document. Here they are in email form anyway; maybe you could post them yourself or let me know if it's OK for me to do so. Isn't email great! Regards, Robin Allison Waitakere Eco-Neighbourhood Cohousing Project Auckland, NZ RESPECTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES As a member of Tierra Nueva Cohousing I support the "R & R"s as GUIDING PRINCIPLES for desirable behaviours. Always living up to these to the best of my ability, I agree to: 1. Physical Respect · Respect personal boundaries · Touch others appropriately · Refrain from violence 2. Emotional · Respect others? feelings and emotions · Take responsibility for my own feelings and emotions 3.
