Our guide to coliving is divided into “The Hard Stuff” and “The Soft Stuff.” The Hard Stuff will appeal to the left side of your brain: Legal and financial structures, finding property etc. The Soft Stuff will tickle the right side of your brain: Managing conflict, decision-making, etc.
We solemnly vow to leave no side of your brain untickled.
We’re also including a series of case studies to help you understand how individual communities run.

Hi Phil & Gillian: I just came back from 1 month of co-living in https://Zuzalu.city , would love to write a case study of the community. Where can I find the template?
Ooo, the idea of "The Abundance Mentality" in your Coming Soon section sounds fascinating!
