Intentional Community


#1

Anyone interested in starting an intentional Rewilding community.


#2

Sounds intriguing, but I’d need more details. Do you mean in-person or another online, virtual community like this forum?


#3

Yeah, I mean in real life. Finding a location. Starting a community which tries to Rewild; or, my personal opinion is that it would be best to try to reconcile our evolution with technology. Perhaps some kind of tiny house community or something… Community is an essential component of a healthy individual. Like much of modern society, community today has become corrupted.

It is what I look for. It will need to be with others thinking alike in things, who can live with each other, with commitment to their community for it to continue working, the way communities of humans have worked before. It will need to be separate enough from civilization to become independent of it, after some transition time which should be minimal. And it will need to be with those in it seeking the full sustainable way of living that they can happily live with, valuing that which would involve simplicity in living apart from civilization, much more in harmony with natural environments without harm to them. It will need those seeking it together to be in communication with one another.

The issues from civilization in this world are very serious, with those in it having excess in living that becomes expected that we don’t really have to have, while the natural world is severely compromised from that.

It is something I have considered and is something I am interested in. However, I am wary of committing to something that might fall apart. Details would be needed to understand how the group intends to handle conflict both within the group and with the outside world.

So it is that those that would pursue that should already be in communication together, to learn from each other, to know what is planned, that can be worked for, knowing the others through the communication, with finding opportunity at some time to meet with one another. We have priveleged luxury with these things to come to being in community, that many generations of people didn’t have, to be in the communities they were in without so much choice, and it worked well for humanity generally all that time. Our issues that distinguish us are the different expectations we have, from having different backgrounds, but people can live together so we can find some that we can find ways that we can live with in such community.

Well, for as a start, perhaps trying to organize a whole miniature society apart from mainstream, regular society is too big of a step. I was thinking merely something like finding some land to start a community/ neighbourhood of Rewildiers, something like a Tiny-house community for example. See, I want to live outside the city, but doing this without community will be extremely isolating and lonely. And perhaps others feel the same in this.


#8

I see the sense in a community apart from civilization with sustainability starting on a small scale. I think it would be significantly less than twenty persons first coming onto the land for this at first, and there would surely be a number of steps first before they do this with being ready for it, with knowing their common goals, with approaches for that understood among those persons, and it would not grow to very much more than that for sustainable ways in the one place.


#9

I still don’t have any in communication for a community together with me of all those who are in communication even with this subject brought up. It is an issue of having those like-minded enough for it, even though I use other sites and media for it. And I need the progress to this.
