Living the Dream: A Documentary Study of Twin Oaks Community
by Ingrid Komar
1983; 408 pages; paperbound
Written in cooperation with the members of Twin Oaks, Komar chronicles her experience of Twin Oaks Community, an egalitarian intentional community in Virginia. Originally inspired by behaviorist psychologist B.F. Skinner’s book Walden Two, Twin Oaks soon turned from Skinner’s proposals, to find their own way. Living the Dream covers everything from decision making and economics to interpersonal relationships.
