I’m offering a bit of support to an established intentional community, which has embarked on a partial implementation of sociocracy. One of their thorniest issues is, who gets to decide about accepting new members, and what does the process look like? It’s clearly an area where some pain and resentment have been created in the past. And I’m like, this is a question that a thousand other communities have answered.
Is this the (maybe only) kind of decision that all current residents of the community consent to? Or do people tend to delegate to a circle? I know that there’s lots of context that would be relevant but kind of just curious to get the landscape. xx!
