How often do you have your neighbors over for dinner? How do you define your community? Where do you feel the most connected in your life? In a world increasingly isolated and separate, community is still readily availableawe just have to look around. In Creating Community Wherever You Are, Deanna Nakosteen opens our eyes to what's possible. When we create community, we create relationships and meaningful connections. When we live our lives with connection and meaning, we broaden our capacity for love. Written with warmth and wisdom from 30+ years of living in an intentional community, Creating Community Wherever You Are issues an invitation to all of us, no matter where we live, to deepen our connections to one another, the world, and ourselves.
