Village Building: Cultivating a sense of shared wellbeing

I see it time and time again in my own village. By working hard to cultivate a sense of shared wellbeing- be it to keep common areas neat and tidy, to regenerate the village by planting life back into it, or to keep an eye on your fellow neighbour’s health in times of sickness, it cultivates the best in everyone. It becomes a place to return to a deeper humanity and begins to represent a place for much deeper connections. The village, and village living, becomes a way that we can all hold each other in community, and it gives those people who have lost their way  the opportunities to remember.

Never underestimate the power of the collective community. Just with one mind-shift, we can turn shared existence into village living.
