Presenter Testimonials

With expertise, humanity, and intuition, Cynthia asked targeted and guided questions that helped lead me to define and refine what I am seeking in a community. She is personable, easy to relate to and steadfast in her knowledge of intentional communities. I wholeheartedly recommend her to help guide you in your search for a well matched community! – Joia Holman

Cynthia was masterful. She helped me clarify the intentional communities that fit me, better get to know them, and finally choose one that I’m now a member of. She also raised my cultural understanding of community living to help me launch a new chapter of my life. I have no doubt anyone in a community journey will find great value in her guidance. She is also a deeply warm thoughtful soul to work with. – Alan Stillman

Cynthia proved to be an excellent ally in assisting me in my search for ecovillages and communities. She was super-knowledgeable, thorough, kind, thoughtful, and an excellent listener. She recommended several sites that I had not heard of, many of the which she had visited personally. I felt very inspired and hopeful after our session — her enthusiasm for the regenerative movement is very infectious and genuine, which combined with her experience and commitment made her a great helper for finding the best next steps forward for myself. Five stars! – Adam Morrision

My session with Cynthia was wonderful. She arrived already very well prepared when we started. Due to her extensive community experience, she could offer many insights, provide useful tips and present selected communities to me that she had visited herself. The dialogue also helped me to reflect about what I am looking for in a community… I experienced a safe space where I could express my fears, hopes and expectations regarding life in community and received valuable feedback from on these. Cynthia as very passionate and committed to the topic, very attentive and tuned in to my perspective. – Antonia Von Hassell
