The Foundation for Intentional Community is pleased to offer you the cream of our crop―the very best articles that have appeared over the last 20 years in our flagship publications: Communities magazine and Communities Directory. We’ve distilled what we consider the most insightful and helpful articles on the topics that you-our readers―have told us you care about most, and have organized them into 15 scintillating collections.

The Relationships, Intimacy, Health, and Well-Being collection offers an array of 17 articles that explore the range of relationships and intimacy available, plus how community can provide a precious safety net when members face devastating health challenges, how community offers hope for coping sensitively with mental health issues in the era of de-institutionalization, and the ways that communities are pioneering an attempt to redefine security in terms of relationships―instead of how much money you have in the bank. With contributions from Ma’ikwe Ludwig, Tree Bressen, and Starhawk―to name a few―our writers explore the depths of what it means to be healthy and happy in community.
