Commun-ity/Commun-ication; It is no coincidence that Community and Communication have the same base word: Commune: to be in a state of intimate sensitivity and receptivity.
What if instead of information transfer; communication meant being sensitive and receptive in conversation?
What if instead of a geographical area or like-minded people; community meant a group of people that are sensitive and receptive to each other?
We have designed a 4 hour workshop that demonstrates and teaches this skill.
Communication is the basis of Community. Community is the core of Resiliency and Resiliency is at the heart of Sustainability
“It is the the opportunities for informal interactions that allow people to get to know their neighbors, and it is these interactions that provide the roots for true community to flourish” Sarah Susanka in her forward to Pocket Neighborhoods by Ross Chapin
