Michael Anne Conley --- Announcement of a Multi-Media Presentation by Geoph Kozeny ... VISIONS OF UTOPIA: Experiments in Sustainable Culture Today's Social Laboratories: "Intentional Communities" Ever since the 6th Century BC--when the Buddha instructed his followers to live in community--people have been living together "intentionally" based on shared visions of a better world. In the ensuing 2500 years there have been an amazing array of visionary social experiments: egalitarians, anarchists, Christians, Quakers, Eastern spiritual groups, back-to-the-landers, environmentalists, psychologists, artists, retired professionals, urban homesteaders, land co-ops, student co-ops, and much more. Today there exist thousands of these visionary groups, living their everyday lives in ways that reflect their values and visions. Tonight's multimedia presentation will feature an overview of the wide range of histories, philosophies, and lifestyles currently available in shared living communities-plus excerpts from Geoph's award-winning video documentary "Visions of Utopia." An open discussion will follow. WHEN: Wednesday, Oct 26 * 7:00 PM Alameda Point Collaborative WHERE: 677 W.
