Becoming a Communitarian

Embark on a transformative journey towards community.

Join us for a transformative journey into self literacy, community living, and culture repair

Pre-Recorded, 10 Hour, Online Course

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.
