Roger Berman asked about privacy vs. drop in and how you deal with it. This is one of the MANY things you learn about each other in your first year living together. Your life will change in some many ways. It can be very helpful to establish a format to talk about such things within your group. These gatherings are not to make decisions, but to share ideas, things about each other you want others to know, and can also be used to defuse issues and conflicts. These are called Sharing Circles in my community, some groups call them talking circles, third meeting, wisdom council, etc. The point is, create a non-decision space to meet and talk. Your group will benefit hugely from this as you start bumping into each other as you start living together. There are many formats for this, I published one in Cohousing magazine years ago. I can probably dredge this up and post it on the ICRP if anybody is interested. Rob Sandelin Northwest Intentional Communities Association Building a better society, one neighborhood at a time
