Praise for the Communities Directory Book:
“There’s never been a moment when we need connection quite as badly: connection between people who have figured out new/old ways of living on this planet. This book is a resource, because the communities in this book are a resource. I mean that quite literally — the wisdom embedded in these communities is one of the few forces strong enough to make a real difference in the epic fight for the earth’s future.” — Bill McKibben, environmental educator, Author of Deep Economy and Eaarth
“The Communities Directory is a vital reference for anyone seeking, living in, doing business with, or studying intentional communities or collective working endeavors.” — Starhawk, author of The Spiral Dance and The Fifth Sacred Thing
“The Communities Directory is no mere catalogue or book. It is already a profound and shining artifact of our transformative age. It is a map of social vision and leadership that will help us thrive right now and in the times ahead.” — Mark Lakeman, Director of City Repair in Portland OR
