    Life and lifestyle can be much simpler, if we step out of complications which we are made to think as knowledge.

    A world not made up of technology. Back to the roots. I think they're learning more than what's obvious.

    What a remarkable experiment and a group of people. Everyone seems very intentional about what they're doing and learning.

    It seems to me that many communal living situations run into the problem of communication and conflict resolution. With the Possibility Alliance using non-violent communication and consensus-building, they're really on to something--bringing those "soft skills" into play to create a truly sustainable community. I agree that that's where the real hard work is. I'd be interested in following their journey over the long-haul.

    wondering how much of this success relies on physical and mental health and strength and therefore not feeling like it's completely replicable...

    Altogether inspiring seeing these young people living their values, testing their values, exploring their values by actually putting them to the test of being lived. And when the results verify the hopes and larger aims, it's a powerful demonstration for inspiring others. Love this little film that captures the spirit of the group so well.

    Wonderful!!! Inspired to figure out how to create something similar using veganic permaculture, and attempt simplicity without animal exploitation.
