In my community, Bay State Commons, we have been working hard on building community as we get ready to build a 30-unit project in Malden, MA, near Boston. Early on, we realized that dealing with difficult feelings would be important to making the best decisions and maintaining harmony. A number of us were lucky enough to attend a workshop with Karen Gimnig at the Northeast Regional Cohousing Conference, and we have hired her as a consultant. Karen can do workshops, facilitate meetings, and consult over time. We have had a number of workshops in which we’ve learned important skills in listening, empathizing with, and validating others. Many skeptics in our group have come to feel that it’s worthwhile work. Recently Karen facilitated an extended meeting on the topic of affordability, which engenders many interpretations and feelings. We were able to learn more about each other and about the range of feelings on the topic. There’s plenty of hard work left, but Karen got us thinking and communicating constructively. I heartily recommend her services. Karen’s website is https://www.karengimnig.net/ <https://www.karengimnig.net/>. -Marcia Zuckerman Bay State Commons
