In Partnership with the Foundation for Intentional Communities

Becoming a Communitarian

Embark on a transformative journey towards community.

Five Week Course, Starts October 8, 2021, Online

In order to experience true community, we are each called upon to do deep work. We must step into our sovereignty as individuals and our capacity for emotional intimacy as a group.

Communitarians are the ambassadors of the future—a future of intentionality, collaboration, and expanded consciousness. Join us for a transformative journey as we dive deep into self literacy, community living, and culture repair. We will emerge as elders, of all ages, who are ushering in a new paradigm.

Your journey as an agent of change begins with the transition from toxic individualism into holistic community building. Becoming a mature, engaged, and embodied steward of the commons provides you with profound meaning and contributes to much needed cultural transformation — whether you already live in community or are looking for a community to join. 

This course offers a comprehensive look at how to thrive in cooperative culture using relational resilience as a roadmap. We’ll learn about the emerging science of trauma and attachment, discuss the celebrations and challenges of intentional living, explore best practices for self knowledge and care, and cultivate effective skills and attitudes for community success.

Participants will set personal goals, engage in contemplation and healing, dialog with fellow students, and deepen their understanding of conscious relating in all areas of life.

    "Lee is an experienced and truly competent guide in the vast landscapes of end of life plans. Her thoughtful pacing helps us navigate the territory of decisions to make, who to involve, emotions and choices. Being supported in preparing for this rite of passage by creating our death care team settles a lot in me. I highly recommend. Everyone involved will benefit."

    Re: Thriving in Community Workshop

    "This course covers the vital social-emotional aspects of community that just isn't talked about openly enough. I so appreciated Lee's candid sharing of her own experience and warm encouragement of our own self-reflection. I truly believe that if more folks did the kind of personal and interpersonal work Lee outlines in this course, more communities would thrive!"

  • Keary Jenkins

    Executive Vice President & Wellness Coordinator

    "When I heard Lee say, "functional teams demonstrate communication, transparency, and trust," in her Relational Leadership workshop, it changed everything for me. I'm being that change in my workplace and finding others who resonate with that change. It is having impact with everyone in the entire organization, including the CEO. Employees who felt powerless in the past are now starting to light up. Our work ecology is changing and the transformation is beyond powerful."
