Longing to Belong: Looking for Your Tribe? part 1 (308)


“If you look at our DNA, we’re meant to be connected…. You can take people out of the tribe, but you can’t take the tribe out of the people.” Bill Kauth and Zoe Alowan share a model for community where people live in their own homes located “roughly within biking distance.” The co-authors of We Need Each Other: Building Gift Community explain that their own tribe, who have met weekly for three years, has committed to staying in place and to being there fully for one another. Countering the pervasive isolation in our culture, their model creates a safe space for men and women to build non-sexual intimacy, honesty, openness and mutual support in a social safety net. In part 2, they explain the structures, activities and values for successful tribe-making. [timefortribe.com]
