Is Cohousing for You? - 2 SPACES LEFT -
A 2-day workshop with facilitator: Margaret Critchlow, Ph.D. Founding member of Harbourside Cohousing, Sooke, BC
Learn about a creative alternative to today’s culture of individualism and materialism. Cohousing is a sustainable neighbourhood design that values privacy and community, independence and interdependence.
In this experiential two-day workshop, participants explore how to access the power of community to build better neighbourhoods and improve quality of life. The facilitator will relate examples from other cultures, old-fashioned neighbourhoods, and contemporary cohousing communities. We will learn how to work through differences collaboratively, make decisions well, and find the creative solutions that groups can achieve when they bring out the best in all of us. Participants will work together to identify next steps for developing cohousing on the Saanich Peninsula or wherever they live.
Some of the topics covered:
Take a good look at how and where you live now. What do you want for your future? What is it like to live in cohousing? To develop it? How to know if it is for you? What skills are needed in cohousing and how to get them? What you can and can’t do yourself. Introduction to consensus-based decision-making and facilitation, and how to have efficient, enjoyable meetings!
