And so it begins. The inevitable spiritualization of the cohousing design, or perhaps better said, adaptation of the cohousing design for spiritual/religious goals and ideals. This differentiation from secular intention to spiritual orientation is surprising to me only in that it took so long. Of course, the author is only proposing the idea, which doesn't yet exist, at least not in the affirmation of spiritual community using the cohousing design, but it looks closer to being a reality. Personally, I feel that what ever people feel they have to do or say to build community is okay. If cohousing is an inspiration that brings religious people together in community, we can thank Katie and Chuck and others for doing such a good job in articulating the vision, even if how people use it is different from the designer's goals. Thanks, Ann, for posting this article reference. Allen //\\\//\\\//\\\//\\\//\\\//\\\//\\\//\\\//\\\//\\\//\\\ \\///\\///\\///\\///\\///\\///\\///\\///\\///\\///\\/// excerpts from " Co-Housing, Anyone?" by Shonna Husbands-Hankin With an eye towards shaping Jewish renewal co-housing communities, where spiritual practices and holy days could be integrated into a vibrant shared life, we toured a number of different types of co-housing communities. Below are observations culled from these visits, offered with the hopes that together one can synthesize the best concepts and integrate them into local/regional hubs of Jewish renewal co-housing communities throughout the U.S., Canada and abroad. <snip> Co-housing Contacts: Consistent with its mission to nurture the growth of communities, ALEPH is pleased to offer information for people seeking to become involved with Jewish renewal co-housing. The following individuals have offered to be contacts in their regions. We regret it if we have omitted anyone who should have been included, and encourage everyone involved in the formation of Jewish renewal co-housing or intentional communities to make themselves known to one another. New York to Mid-Atlantic: Phyllis Berman, BermanPO [at] aol.com New England: Rosalie Eisen, 413-586-3602 or RosalieEisen [at] aol.com Pacific Northwest: Shonna Husbands-Hankin, 541-484-6053 or ShonnaHH [at] aol.com Southwest: Ayla Grafstein, rabbi [at] ruach.org or Steve Klemow, 480-451-9339 Colorado: Cindy Gabriel, Gabriel36 [at] aol.com Anyone wishing to be involved at a planning and organizing level, either as a contact person for a region that is not represented here, or by facilitating collaboration among groups, may also contact Cindy Gabriel. Beyond co-Housing: Ruach HaAretz, a group in California, is interested in building a Jewish renewal retreat center that would also house a year-round community. People interested in that concept may contact Jonathan Siedel at JonSeidel [at] aol.com. > ------------------------------ > > Date: Wed, 26 Jan 2000 16:29:27 -0500 > From: "Ann Zabaldo" <zabaldo [at] earthlink.net> > To: "Cohousing List" <cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org>, > Subject: Article on Cohousing > > Hi all! > > A friendly prospect for Takoma Village told me about this article on > the > www.shalom.org website.
