bellingham_cohousing-01What is Bellingham Cohousing?

We are an intergenerational and collaborative community of 33 households. Our design allows for both privacy (with individual condos) and shared spaces for social interaction. Our ongoing goals are creating a real community and living a bit more lightly on the earth.

What do I commit to if I buy or rent?

You commit to living as a part of a community with its enormous benefits and real obligations. You commit to 9 hours a month of community participation from a broad array of choices. It could be participating in a landscape work party, cooking as part of a meal team, or serving on a committee, etc. You commit to participating in community decisions through a consensus process.

What are the benefits?

Each community member would answer this a bit differently. Most would agree that high points range from weekly community meals and occasional celebrations to easy going help from your neighbors if you need a ride to the airport or a supportive hand during a personal hard patch. We all find that the more we put into the community the more we get out of it.

What are the shared spaces?

The heart of our shared space is the common house with a large kitchen and dining/gathering area, two living rooms, guest rooms, a play room, and an office. In addition, we have a large workshop, a hot tub, a play field, a large room for exercise and other activities, and a wetland where we feel nature close to us.

An amazing woman and story. See you Sunday the 20th!

Walkabout the World

November 20, 2016, 2:00pm – November 20, 2016, 5:00pm

Laura is a Divine being who truly “walks her talk,” sharing with us the story of her incredible walking pilgrimage across the U.S. in support of inner peace & healing for grownups kids, and horses/animals.
What keeps us from experiencing that inner peace and joy we all seek? In an open talk and Q & A format, Laura will share with us how her year long pilgrimage brought her to a deeper understanding of and answer to this question. And, just in time for Thanksgiving, Laura will lead us in a beautiful forgiveness meditation. We will leave this experience knowing how each one of us can “walkabout the world supporting inner peace and healing joy.”
