Please join the Humanist Association of Connecticut at 700 Hartford
Turnpike in Hamden on Monday, October 15 for our monthly meeting, which
will be a presentation to explain Cohousing and Sociocracy.
Cohousing started in Denmark in the 1960s and was brought to the United
States in the 1970s. Although there are several cohousing communities in
other New England states, Rocky Corner in Bethany is the first in
Connecticut to actually break ground.
Cohousing is a type of intentional community. A cohousing community may
cover many acres or less than a city block, but it conforms to
principles that foster social relationships among its residents.
Community participation and self-management are hallmarks of cohousing.
The self-governance model that has been proven successful in cohousing
communities is called sociocracy.
Intrigued yet? Join us for a presentation on cohousing and sociocracy by
educator and founding member of Green Haven Cohousing, Marie Pulito.
Marie has been working on the Rocky Corner project since 2006.
We will start with 30 minutes of coffee and conversation at 7:00 PM.
Marie's presentation will follow brief announcements at 7:30 PM.
Hope to see you there!
