"All of us have a gene for community, and we're
yearning for that sense of connection and harmony
and good will with others, living with shared
resources and more cooperation than we do in
mainstream culture." A resurgence of interest in
joining with like-minded individuals and families
to live in support of one another, sharing a
common vision in work, play, lifestyle and
spirituality, has led to a rise in the number of
intentional communities around the globe. Ms.
Christian has been studying the trend for more
than ten years. She shares insights that will
inspire many to consider embracing this
lifestyle, and to improve the success rate for
new intentional communities.
