A typical community search takes several months to several years. The process involves researching, contacting, visiting, evaluating, and going through trial memberships. But there is a faster way!

She’ll identify the places for you to visit and work with you to contact, arrange your stay, and get the most out of each experience. Together you’ll evaluate the options and make wise decisions. 

This program is ideal for those whose life circumstances necessitate a speedy move and/or who are committed to finding an excellent community fit.

Meet Your Guide

Hi there, I’m Cynthia. Most people know me as the “community matchmaker” but not everyone knows my story of how that came to be…

In early 2019, I set out to find a community where I could put down roots. I had spent most of my 20s traveling the world, visiting and working with hundreds of communities. My passion was sustainable community living, but despite having spent longer stints in several places, nothing felt like a forever home.

Fast forward several years and I now live in my dream community — a small ecovillage in Vermont where I have built my passive-solar house and spend my days surrounded by caring neighbors who share my values.

As I shared about my journey online, increasingly people began asking me for advice on communities to visit or where consider membership. What began as a side pursuit quickly turned into my full-time work, especially as Covid came around and so many were hungry for connection.

Of course, I had a huge leg up in the search process because I’d already visited so many communities and work with community network organizations, such as the Foundation for Intentional Community. Most people have little to no experience with intentional communities when they start out. That’s where I come in to help.

It’s an honor to be able to work with people like you and many others who would be an excellent addition to a community… and who just need help finding the right one.

What community finders are saying:

Joia Holman

With expertise, humanity, and intuition, Cynthia asked targeted and guided questions that helped lead me to define and refine what I am seeking in a community. She is personable, easy to relate to and steadfast in her knowledge of intentional communities.

I wholeheartedly recommend her to help guide you in your search for a well matched community!

Alan Stillman

Cynthia was masterful. She helped me clarify the intentional communities that fit me, better get to know them, and finally choose one that I’m now a member of. She also raised my cultural understanding of community living to help me launch a new chapter of my life. I have no doubt anyone in a community journey will find great value in her guidance. She is also a deeply warm thoughtful soul to work with.

Adam Morrision

Cynthia proved to be an excellent ally in assisting me in my search for ecovillages and communities. She was super-knowledgeable, thorough, kind, thoughtful, and an excellent listener. She recommended several sites that I had not heard of, many of the which she had visited personally. I felt very inspired and hopeful after our session — her enthusiasm for the regenerative movement is very infectious and genuine, which combined with her experience and commitment made her a great helper for finding the best next steps forward for myself. Five stars!

Antonia Von Hassell

My session with Cynthia was wonderful. She arrived already very well prepared when we started. Due to her extensive community experience, she could offer many insights, provide useful tips and present selected communities to me that she had visited herself. The dialogue also helped me to reflect about what I am looking for in a community… I experienced a safe space where I could express my fears, hopes and expectations regarding life in community and received valuable feedback from on these. Cynthia as very passionate and committed to the topic, very attentive and tuned in to my perspective.

Tommy Teeple

Had an awesome session with Cynthia. The number one community she recommended looks like a perfect match. I could not believe I never heard of it, along with some of the others recommended. Out of potentially thousands of communities, Cynthia matched me with very similar values revealed on their websites. I am in the process of applying to visit the number one recommendation. I’m excited for that & thankful for Cynthia ‘s skills. Beyond well worth.

Gregory Temmer

The session went really well! I could tell that Cynthia spent some time reviewing my intake form to consider which communities would be best for me. She listened attentively as I described what I was looking for in a community. After she listened, she gave me a concise list of communities that she thought would fit my needs and explained why those communities would work for my needs. Thank you again for this reasonably priced and high quality service. Her recommendations should speed the process of me finding a wonderful Intentional Community to call home.

Let’s save you time and stress by working together to find your community match. The journey to community can be simple. I’m looking forward to showing you the way how.
