Lynn Dixon's insight:

I heard an NPR piece that talked about this the other day.  I was excited about the connections between work co-ops like this and cohousing living.  It really does make sense to work together for the common good, and share the work, the resources, and the fun in doing good for the community.  Everyone benefits, fewer people struggle.  It's all good!

Compassion and Resilience

Compassion and Resilience | Cohousing Living | Scoop.it

David DeSteno: Compassion is a state to be cultivated. The ability to foster social bonds through aiding others, though taking effort in the short term, is what makes us, both as individuals and as societies, more resilient in the long term.

 

The past decade has witnessed an explosion of research confirming that what the Dalai Lama said is correct: "Love and compassion are necessities not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive."

cohousing, come è iniziata. Io è così che ho conosciuto Casavecchia. Era domenica, il primo ottobre di, ormai, cinque e rotti anni fa. Il cielo era velato, l'aria umida e afosa, ma l'atmosfera era viva e frizzante.

Social Connection Makes a Better Brain

Social Connection Makes a Better Brain | Cohousing Living | Scoop.it
Recent trends show that people increasingly value material goods over relationships—but neuroscience and evolution say this goes against our nature.

 

Lieberman’s new book Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect hits the shelves this month. It’s a book about relationships and why relationships are a central—though increasingly absent—part of a flourishing life. Lieberman draws on psychology and neuroscience research to confirm what Aristotle asserted long ago in his Politics: “Man is by nature a social animal … Anyone who either cannot lead the common life or is so self-sufficient as not to need to, and therefore does not partake of society, is either a beast or a god.”
