“No violence. No theft. No drugs or alcohol. No constant disruptive behavior. Everyone must contribute to the village.” While finishing our tour, Jon Hawkes lays out the five agreements residents must abide by, all forged by real-world experience. What would it be like if our entire society followed these rules? Celebrating its tenth anniversary, Dignity Village is an organically evolving, self-organizing intentional community — and a model for others. [dignityvillage.org]
