"I want to express my deep appreciation that we have had the opportunity to meet. Theodore Roszak said 'All revolutionary changes are unthinkable until they happen. And then they are understood to be inevitable'. I sense you are on the cutting edge in bringing forth an ever expanding understanding of community."

"I so appreciate all your kindnesses and
generosity during the workshop. Your loving attention to all the details of hospitality are much
appreciated! Not a day goes by that I don't bend someone's ear about my experience of the Boulder workshop! I
continue to be thrilled and animated for the future."

"I really enjoyed the "Getting Started" workshop in Boulder last month (June 2005). You gave us all so much useful information that I am sure all the attendees left the workshop with all the information they needed to get started with their Elder Cohousing projects. I certainly feel much more confident about launching my new "career" when I retire in a few months.
