Thinking about joining an intentional community? Curious to learn about 
communities from them directly? Want to peak inside community living and get 
your questions answered?
The Virtual Tour of Intentional Communities is the event experience for you! 
Each month we bring together a variety of new and established intentional 
communities — ecovillages, cohousing, shared homes, coliving spaces and more — 
to present about about their community in an interactive setting. You’ll 
experience photos, videos, captivating stories, and insightful dialogue among 
the presenting communitarians. Plenty of time is included for you to ask your 
burning questions about community living. Come travel to communities around the 
world without leaving your armchair!

Join us and Ted from Sociocracy For All (SoFa) for an interactive workshop on 
the basics of sociocracy, including how we make decisions, how we empower and 
connect teams, and how we can improve governance over time. 
Sociocracy is a governance system that supports healthy group processes. 
Sociocracy has a strong focus on equality and effectiveness, and is used 
worldwide in a variety of organizations, particularly intentional communities. 

In this workshop, we’ll engage in small-group exercises and demonstrations so 
everyone can experience the clarity, consideration, and flow that sociocracy 
brings. We’ll also explore examples from existing communities!

Authentic Self-Expression as a Foundation for Community [Workshop] 
Learn more and register here https://bit.ly/3fh0dNb

Join Conscious Relating Coach and Expressive Therapist, Teri Lynn Grunthaner, 
for a workshop exploring how to create authentic relating within your 
community. 
We know that thriving community depends on developing shared governance, 
decision-making, and interpersonal communication. But what about cultivating 
the most important components – you and the people you live with? The more 
authentic and connected we are to ourselves and one another, the more creative, 
cohesive, and resilient a community will become. 



In community,
