I recently learned about The Cascadia Society in North Vancouver. What an incredible community. I can’t do justice to writing about all that they do, but what I can write about is what I witnessed during our tour of their residences.
There was a strong sense of community, people helping people. There was learning going on everywhere, in each of the residences, focusing on different tasks and involving all different folks. There was a sense of purpose and of belonging. There was joy, laughter, reality-checks, poignancy, creativity, and the feeling of people really living. There was an impressive level of self-reliancy, of independence, of a pioneering spirit. I left the tour in awe of everything that was going on. The Cascadia Society is an example of how communities can live in harmony and with the sincere practice of helping ourselves and others live well daily.
Cascadia makes every effort to support themselves financially and they also appreciate the support of others. As their gift to the community at large and as an effort to raise funds to enable them to continue their work, they are offering a performance on November 24, 2017 at 11:00 am, 1:30 pm and 7:30 pm at the Kay Meek Centre, main stage, 1700 Mathers Avenue, West Vancouver. The performance is “Iron Hands” Eurythmy & Bell Choir presents by The Cascadia Society and Vancouver Waldorf School.
If you can, go. They are worth every penny.
