A request by email:
I have bought a house in XX with the hopes of creating a property based on Permaculture and living in community. I currently have 6 housemates and we have started getting into some sticky interpersonal dynamics. I am afraid of losing housemates I love living with to interpersonal conflict and I am looking for ways to resolve things one way or other and move forward.
I have started reading “Who decides, who decides” and I realize I don’t have an aim besides creating a permaculture paradise and live happily ever after. I have a housemate who wants me to create a mission statement, but I like diversity of people and interests and I’m resistant to limiting housemates to people who think like me and like the same things but maybe that would be best? I don’t know. It would be great for me to get help in how to be a good community founder and then consulting help with the group on how we can mend/heal and move forward efficiently.
