That's right, there are about 8 more days to propose a workshop or breakout activity for the 2011 Natl Coho Conference. Last night, I sat with several members of the Shadowlake Cohousing community here in Blacksburg, Virginia. We talked about the value that participating in past conferences has had for different communities over the years. I want to strongly encourage people from communities in the Mid-Atlantic to consider joining together to share from your community's story through a conference session. Over the years, I've worked with others from Songaia Cohousing to share about Aging in Community, Singing in Community, Creating Celebrations and Ritual for communities, and Social Sustainabilty. I've found the exercise of joining with other community members to craft and then present your story is an important way to deeply connect into your own life experience and to help create a broader legacy for your community and yourself. It also is very helpful for future cohousers to get a picture of community members who have come together to create something. For the 2011 Conference, a group from Songaia will be flying all the way from Seattle to the other Washington (DC) for the conference. We hope to present on Eldering in Community (our proposal has not yet been selected). Over recent years, two of our Founding Elders have passed away. And, we've done much work and have had many conversations about eldering and what it is to be an elder in a cohousing community. We're excited about the possibility of sharing this with other communities. I have some personal passion for this specific work and look forward to learning even more with my community as our team comes together to prepare an experience for those who choose to attend.
