Hello all —

OM Goodness!  What a well designed, amazingly well conducted CohoUS Conference 
via zoom!  When you add in the presenters … how fortunate to have an array of 
cohousers and non cohousers share their wisdom throughout the 6 hours.

I attended the sessions on Conflict w/ Joe Cole, Mukunda Florida facilitated a 
heartfelt session on different approaches by cohousing communities to Covid-19, 
plus a session by Sarah Authors on a process developed by Peter Block.

Four things about the conference design stood out:  a get to know you 
networking session early on, an exhibitors session (new this time), an open 
discussion session (anyone could offer a topic or continue discussing a topic) 
and, lastly, an after party get together.  The first three were terrific.  
Alas.  No drinks or nibbles at the after party.  Come to think of it … no 
coffee at the beginning either ...

Congratulations, CohoUS and all the folks who presented, attended, supported, 

PS  Fear not!  Even if you couldn't attend, you will be able to view all the 
main sessions once the videos are up and running.  I’m sure CohoUS will 
announce how to do this very soon.
