Actually, if you think about it, most families operate by consensus. One person says, "I was thinking it would be a nice idea if we (fill in the blank). Another person says, "That's a great idea," or asks a question, "How would that work?" The conversation continues until the family agrees on the proposed idea or not. If they don't, someone may propose an alternative, and the process continues until consensus is reached.

We are about six months from move in (though COVID keeps moving those goalposts, alas). We're facing the combined pressures of getting ready for this big transition, being isolated from each other as we are trying to create community, and having to make all kinds of decisions without the regular interactions that remind us of why we wanted to do this crazy thing. I'd just love to be able to include some quotes (or even a live clip!) from community members who are happy about their consensus decision making processes to give fellow members a focus at the hopeful parts of consensus and community. I'd love to be able to collect and share anecdotes or words of encouragement from more experienced cohousers!
