Spiritual and Visionary Communities provides a balanced introduction to a diverse range of communities worldwide. Focusing on communities which have had little previous academic or public attention, the authors explore a part of contemporary society that is rarely understood. Communities studied include: Israeli kibbutzim, Mandarom, the Twelve Tribes, 'The Farm' and the Camphill movement. Written from a range of perspectives, this collection includes contributions from members of the groups, former members and academic observers, and as such will offer a unique and invaluable discussion of religious and spiritual communities in the U.S., Europe and beyond.thata#39;s how he phrased it, this beautiful english monk who answered all my questions week by week, and was so polite when he stayed in ... areliable and orthodox, a hea#39;d said. i was heartened to meet other students of tibetan Buddhism in mexico, but after mentioning me ... before the internet, and I did not understand the conflicts at the heart of this Buddhist world; Geshe-laa#39;s spiritual guide, trijang rinpoche, anbsp;...
