Lessons Learned from Fifty Years of Intentional Community

An Interview with Douglas Stevenson
The Farm was an intentional community founded by Stephen Gaskin and 300 spiritual seekers from the Haight-Ashbury area of San Francisco in 1971. I heard about The Farm decades after it was founded and it always struck me as a brilliant, although imperfect, luminous reflection of the spiritual impulses of the time. For this issue of the magazine we found Douglas Stevenson, a long time member and spokesperson of the community and the author of the book Out to Change the World. We asked to speak with Douglas about how the community has evolved over the past fifty years and what lessons have been learned by its members.
