Courtney Martin, Cohousing Conference US 2019
Courtney Martin started her talk at the Cohousing Conference in Portland Oregon in 2019 by reading a children’s book titled ‘Extra Yarn’ by Mac Barnett. I wasn’t sure whether I was ‘up for it’, but her talk made a lasting impression and comes highly recommended to everyone curious about the ‘magic of cohousing’.
Courtney in her talk compared the ‘extra yarn’ in the book with the magic of cohousing; something that “confuses the rich and powerful and cannot be bought”.
She offers three forms of sacred abundance that you find while living in community followed by three provocations to both individuals and the cohousing movement.
Courtney E. Martin is the author of “The New Better Off: Reinventing the American Dream” and draws from her personal experience living in cohousing with her family.
