    Seems Ideal Life

    As a single mother I honestly think living in a commune would be beneficial as you would have support at hand and someone to play with the kids

    I'd Like To Ask All Of You...

    Why?What drives you to want this?  Let's assume we all want a feeling of Belonging; all desire love and acceptance. Beyond that, what daily/weekly activities or elements would be important to you personally if you lived in a commune?

    Wonderful Memories Of Childhood

    In college I have always liked having roommates.

    And I think it would be amazing to live in a house with a bunch of people that love and care about you, that you can spend holidays with, and just be yourself with. I often fantasize about living in a commune just like the ladies from one of my favorite bands Rockbitch

    Bonobo Intellectualis Anyone? Dreaming Of My Tribe

    What should a commune really be? When I first start exploring that field back in 2004, all hell broke loose in my quickly evolving mind. First, term defining is a must. Commune derived from community seems to involve something larger and much less united. Tribe seems better but...
