Virtual Tour of Intentional Communities

Thinking about joining an intentional community? Curious to learn about communities from them directly? Want to peak inside community living and get your questions answered?

The Virtual Tour of Intentional Communities is the event experience for you! Each month we bring together a variety of new and established intentional communities — ecovillages, cohousing, shared homes, coliving spaces and more — to present about about their community in an interactive setting. You’ll experience photos, videos, captivating stories, and insightful dialogue among the presenting communitarians. Plenty of time is included for you to ask your burning questions about community living. Come travel to communities around the world without leaving your armchair!

What you’ll get from the Virtual Tour experience:

  • Deeper insight into the lives of communitarians and the places they live
  • Inspiration to get you excited about your own community journey
  • Information about housing and membership opportunities
  • Network building with presenters and fellow participants
  • A sense for what’s alive in the communities movement right now

Presenting Communities

La’akea Community

La’akea Community is a small, family-style, egalitarian, intentional community on the big island of Hawai’i. We are a committed group of people working together closely as a means to health, relationship vitality, economic stability, and personal and spiritual growth. We integrate the social aspects of sustainability into daily life: how to live together with honesty, love and peace, and shared power and leadership.


Touchstone Cohousing

Touchstone Cohousing is an intergenerational cohousing community located just west of the city limits of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Though we still have private lives, we’ve chosen to reside in this tightly knit neighborhood. We share three meals a week in the common house, which also provides laundry facilities and children’s play space. We work together to maintain our landscaping. We govern ourselves by consensus and use dialogue to manage our conflicts.


Magic Community

Magic is a decades-old residential service-learning community located in Palo Alto, California. We are developing and disseminating valuescience, a scientific approach to value. We research, teach, publish, and aim to walk our talk by applying valuescience to act for common good. Some residents operate an educational, charitable organization by the same name.

Loved by Community Builders

What a beautiful gift to our intentional community builders and leaders! FIC’s programs provide a way for thinking and concerned people to collaborate for solutions to our multitude of global crises. Thank you FIC!Terri Garcia

I am constantly impressed by the down-to-earth practicality of the FIC workshops combined with the philosophical questions that are so vital for us to explore. I’m grateful for the excellent planning and delivery of the workshops by skilled and inclusive presenters, who create a space that is both welcoming and invites participants to challenge existing ideas and world views. Well done and thank you FIC.Claire Ogden
