Creating a Life Together
Diana Leafe Christian

“A unique guide to launching and sustaining a successful new ecovillages and sustainable communities – and avoiding the typical mistakes in the process.”

I get asked a few times a week what resources are available to someone who wants to start their own community. I always tell them to get the book Creating a Life together by Diana Leafe Christian. It’s the bible for community.

Creating and Sustaining Community
Occidental Arts and Ecology Center’s 5-Day Course 

Consider attending the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center’s 5 day course on Creating and Sustaining Community. I loved the course and you leave with a massive amount of useful information. You will also be weaved in with the community for that week and get to witness great group flow. I was already living in community for a year before i went to this course and found that I was able to focus lessons on exactly what my group needed.)
