People needing Communal Places

This noticeboard is intended for individuals or families who would like to join an existing group. If you're wanting to place a message or reply to one that's already posted then you must either register or sign in. We restrict noticeboard messages to one per person at any time and your message is part of your profile (click "Your account" then the Edit tab). But before you proceed any further we would urge you to take a look here at communities that are currently looking for new members. Don't fool yourself into thinking that those places will be endlessly checking out People needing Communal Places and are, consequently, likely to approach you. Communities rarely do head-hunting and, in fact, they'll probably think far more highly of you if you take the initiative and make a direct approach to them. You should also be aware that there are scarcely any communities where people can live without making any financial input. Offers of work in exchange for a money-free life will most likely be ignored - most members of communities work their butts off for the place where they live AND pay to live there as well!

Deep Listeners looking for communal living

We are a couple of composers/sound artists and academic professionals who are looking for a place to live in a co-housing space. We are in the process of approval for a mortgage, and would love to meet communities where we can share communal spaces. We work and live in Bath, and would like to live in areas of Bath and Bristol. We are interested in growing vegetables and in sustainable ways of living, respectful of the ecologies that sustain us; we are interested in making place. We are Deep Listeners and have plenty to offer to a communal space.

Wanting Home/community

I'm a woman in fifties returned from living abroad, now in the UK/ I have small amount of funds to buy into a community/Coop or something similar/ I'd like a long term situation where I can call home. However I'm also open to renting or work in exchange for housing in an area away from Wyfi Masts preferable ie 20mls plus. I'm skilled in all aspects of house maintenance including getting down and dirty with cleaning gardening and animal care. I'm a decent cook and can make pickles, bread,crumbles and so on. I've lived in several spiritual and eco communities and have good communication skills. I've worked with the elderly and in the entertainment industry and with self help/ therapy groups. I've studied, worked,been certified in Shiatsu, Auryveda,Macrobiotics/ Five Elements, Meridian Yoga, Self shiatsu, Vocal toning/healing/coaching. I'm fairly easy going and empathetic. I spend time writing poetry and songs and like to facilitate group chanting/opening the energy gates of the body thru voice and movement and do workshops. If anyone has any ideas or just wants to connect with me please send me a message. Peace

Summer Commune?

I’m looking at joining a community for a few weeks during summer when college formally ends for the year - if the pandemic calms down! The lifestyle is relatively new to me so would like a “taster” before i fully commit, as i am 17 and still in full-time education as well as work. However i am fully willing to volunteer and earn me keep, so if anyone could offer me advice or more information that would be great :)
