Dear Communitarians, We know that more and more cohousing communities are playing with sociocracy (Dynamic Governance). More than 80 according to the directory of the Foundation for Intentional Community! Since I have lived in cohousing since 1994 and worked with lots of communities, cohousing is a focus area of ours. Sociocracy For All offers sociocracy resources, training, and networking. This is what we've got for cohousing communities: *For newbies:* - If you have no idea what sociocracy is and what we're talking about here, go to our start-here page <http://www.sociocracyforall.org/start-here>, or join us on Aug 27 for a free intro webinar <https://www.sociocracyforall.org/event/free-intro-aug2020/>. *For beginners:* - Individuals can learn the basics of sociocracy in our 6-hour online workshop <https://www.sociocracyforall.org/events/category/primer>. - Groups of 4-7 people can learn sociocracy together in our study-group curriculum <http://www.sociocracyforall.org/elc> (8h total). All online! *For sociocratic communities or forming communities:* - Are you aware that we offer a free template of a governance agreement on our community resources page <http://www.sociocracyforall.org/community>? You can copy it and adapt it to your own wording and circumstances. The same page also has case studies and videos. - Need a way to orient new members? Some sociocratic communities use our study-group curriculum <http://www.sociocracyforall.org/elc> - also to refresh sociocracy among the old ones! - Facilitation training <https://www.sociocracyforall.org/events/category/decision-making> - train some of your people to be excellent facilitators! See recordings of sociocratic meetings, printable posters, and all kinds of helpful stuff on our facilitation page <https://www.sociocracyforall.org/facilitation>. *For anyone:* - Living together and self-governing of any kind works much better if we communicate better. That's why we always train Nonviolent Communication <https://www.sociocracyforall.org/events/category/communication-and-connection/> alongside governance and decision-making training. Small, intimate classes - learning online actually works well.
