intentional community @ the intersection of social justice & trauma healing (VA) (1 Viewer)


Aug 6, 2018
I've not often ventured into what I would categorized as "activism" before, however I feel called to put this project into action. If you or someone you know may be interested in co-creating intentional community at the intersection of social justice & trauma healing lemme know.

If you are inspired to:
-prioritize healing in your life and in society
-live cooperatively & by radical values
-hold space for & support self-work & emotional processes
-create a culture of healing in opposition to the violent and alienating nature of current systems
-value emotional work alongside all other forms of labor

& are interested in co-founding this project, let's have a conversation

some details:
I think you'd have to work an outside job for modest rent
rural-ish, growing food a desirable possibility

nice, i'm not in that area now but if i'm headed through in the next month or two, i'll let you know, if there's a spot you're scoping out, would like to visit, contribute work/time/supplies/what all might be useful as i can, and would just be neat to talk about plans. :)

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $60.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $60.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
