Intro to Intentional Communities around the Globe + Live Q&A

Are you looking to learn about intentional communities and get inspiration for your own future community? You’ve come to the right place!

This 60-min pre-recorded webinar will cover all the basics about intentional communities — where to find them, why they matter, and how to join the one that’s right for you. Get your questions during the live Q&A answered and leave with practical tips. This is also a great opportunity to meet fellow community seekers from around the globe.

Cynthia is the Co-Director of the FIC and will offer a virtual tour of some of the hundreds of community projects she has visited or worked with worldwide. She helps people connect to intentional communities as a matchmaker for seekers and as a consultant for growing community projects. She’ll guide you through the ins and outs of life in community… and how to find the best match for you!

During this session you will gain:

  • an overview of the 10 different types of intentional communities
  • top online resources for finding communities worldwide
  • a global tour of some popular and lesser-known communities
  • key steps for identifying the one that is right for you
  • ideas for how to build a lasting community relationship

“This is a wonderful workshop to give you an overview of finding intentional community. Cynthia breaks down all the concepts and inspires you find the community you’re looking for through resources and insightful advice from her own experience.”

Molly McKinney

“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.”

Adam Morrison

“Cynthia has a wealth of information about IC’s around the world, and presented in a way that felt welcoming and inclusive. The breakout group helped me get a sense of the diversity of the backgrounds of people  interested in intentional community.”
