    SYNCHRONICITY LA has an opening in our community for a person looking to share life, food, energy, and conversation.

    This is an opening for a shared room with a female, starting August 1st (although arrangements can be made for an earlier move in if needed).

    If you are interested, please fill out our questionnaire and email it to [email protected] We like to have people over for dinner and to see the space, but if you’re out of town we can often skype.

    Questionnaire:

    1. Do you have any other experiences with community? What are you attracted to about this community in particular?
    2. How could you see yourself, with your distinctions or abilities or personality, contributing to the community?
    3. What is an example of a time you had a difficult interpersonal conflict with someone and successfully worked through it? What did you learn from this situation?
    4. What are your passions? How could these be integrated into your dream community?
    5. What do you like to do with your free time?
    6. How often do you partake in substances such as alcohol, marijuana, or other drugs? What are your beliefs on using these substances?
    7. How do you maintain your financial stability (a job, student loans, savings, a combo)?
    8. At this time, if you moved in, how long do you see yourself living in the community?
    9. When are you looking to move in, and when’s your deadline for an answer from us?
    10. Please give us a few references who we can call – include former roommate(s) and/or landlord(s) if possible!
