About the event

Kick off your journey into intentional community building with the inaugural event of “Blueprints for Belonging: Conversations on Creating Intentional Communities.” In this opening session, Cynthia Tina, a consultant with a wealth of experience from over 200 communities globally, sets the stage for the series. She’ll introduce the overarching themes, provide a clear framework for the discussions to come, and demystify the key terminology you’ll need to navigate the world of intentional communities.

This first event is designed to lay a solid foundation for aspiring community founders. Cynthia will outline the essential elements for creating new intentional communities, from visioning and planning to execution. You’ll gain an understanding of the critical steps involved in starting a community, the common challenges you might face, and the strategies for overcoming them.

The session is interactive, with ample opportunity for attendees to ask questions. This ensures that you can get clarity on any concepts and start your community-building journey with confidence.
