One of the many inspirations to start this project came from a several-months visit in Auroville, India, a few years ago. Auroville is one of the largest and longest existing intentional communities in the world. (https://www.auroville.org/)
"It's so exciting to be visiting all these communities, to talk with the people and share their life for a few weeks. What is it that they have learned about living harmoniously in an intentional community, and what can society at large learn from their example?"
