“Where left and right come front and center to face the music and dance together, to turn the funk into function and leave the junk at the junction”
Despite what we hear and see on the news, we have a deeply UNITED body politic in America. Whether people identify as progressive, conservative, independent or “other”, the vast majority of Americans believe our current pay-to-play political system doesn’t represent them. Particularly in the election of 2016, where the candidate named “Neither of the Above” would have won in a landslide, citizens are feeling disheartened, discouraged and disenfranchised.
The elephant — and donkey — in the living room is the growing awareness that neither of the two major parties has the people’s interest at heart, nor the good of the commonwealth for that matter. The system is incapable of fixing itself, and so what is required is an “intervention” by the entity that our founding documents, The Declaration of Independence and the Preamble to the Constitution declare is the “sovereign” of our republic: we, the people.

An Interview with Intentional Community Advocates and Activists Bill Kauth and Zoe Alowan
“We’re all one with the same One, totally unique just like everyone else.” — Swami Beyondananda
Unfortunately, no one could stand to live with him.
As anyone who was part of the intentional community movement 40 or 50 years ago can attest, the challenge back then was to align the utopian ideal with the down-to-earth “real deal”. Not only were there the issues of many (often immature) egos, but the cultural changes as we’ve moved from a more communal rural existence to a more impersonal urban / suburban one.
However, these days there is a growing awareness that the ability to connect, cooperate and collaborate with each other is an evolutionary trait, key to our survival and thrival.
Our guests this week, Bill Kauth and Zoe Alowan, have spent the better part of their lifetimes in creative endeavor and service, and seeking to find elegant and effective ways to facilitate functional and nourishing community. Bill and Zoe are co-creators of the committed, non-residential Community they call “Tribe”. Together they have delivered more than 65 seminars around the world and co-authored the book “We Need Each Other”. Read more here.
