Why are you here?

This is clearly the place to be! :smile: :slight_smile:

I have been creating written materials about intentional community, and community-oriented spirituality. I have produced a first edition of an alternative history of Western civilization focusing upon gifting and sharing cultures, and am in the process of producing a second edition. 1st edition available on Amazon titled: “The Intentioneers’ Bible.” This work is also part of my development of a communitarian religion I’ve named “partnership spirituality.” For discussions of these projects see my blog: www(dot)Intentioneers(dot)net Also, I have three Facebook pages: Dry Gulch Ecovillage; School of Intentioneering; Partnership Spirituality

Another book project I am working on covers several different topics concerning community, some of the chapters for which I will be distributing when produced, currently working on one about childcare in community, and another about time-based economics replacing monetary economics, and another on partnership spirituality. Initial discussions of these and other topics appear on my blog and Facebook pages.

I am fortunate to have a living situation where I can focus upon writing, which has also served for isolating during the Covid pandemic. Looking forward to getting published!
