Greetings,
I have been thinking about communities in general and intentional communities in particular. I only recently heard about "intentional communities" and I'm only barely familiar with what they are. What kinds of communities are available for someone like myself who is considering joining one? Thank you

Listen thee to the podcasts of Paul and thou shalt learn.

Look for podcasts with "intentional community" or "Diana Leafe Christian" in the title.

Podcasts 37, 42, 110, 117, 129, and 307-311 would be a good start.

Intentional community is a very broad term that basically means people living together for some common purpose or shared values. Some examples are communes, ecovillages, and monasteries. A handful of families constructing homes on a shared piece of land to ensure they have cool neighbors is an intentional community. Check out http://ic.org, where you'll find a wealth of information.

Another type of intentional community, are the eco-minded intentional communities. Those can be found at the Fellowship for Intentional Communities website and at the Global Ecovillage Network.
