The village

I am a strong believer in the exceeding value of intentional community, not just as an experiment or a short-term solution, but as a way of life.

One of my dreams is to start a yurt village.

I was also thinking about the reasons why an intentional village would be better than our modern-day alternative. Here are the 4 main elements and major benefits that came to mind.

community

economy

environment

mobility

Maybe I’ll talk more about these in future posts, but I’m sure that if you think about it, you can see how a bunch of people living on the same property with one shared common house and many private yurts (or yurt-like dwellings) would be socially healthier, financially cheaper, easier on energy and the local environment and would provide much more freedom to travel or even divide the year between different parts of the world. Just think about it.
