Your community type:

Cohousing Community

Community living is above all a spiritual practice. It’s the art of expressing your inner awareness alongside others who have a shared commitment for greater self-development.

If this idea rings true for you, then you may just find a home in a retreat center or spiritual community.

Some of the earliest intentional communities in recorded history were monasteries and ashrams. Today you can find a residential community of nearly every tradition and practice — Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, yoga, meditation, wellness, tantra… you name it. Many also open their doors to the public for retreats and events, which can fulfill the mission of the community while providing income.

Hey there, I’m Cynthia

If you’re interested in joining an intentional community or just want to learn about what that entails, then you’ve come to the right place.

After my journey to 150+ communities around the world, I built my home and am living my dream at an ecovillage in Vermont in the US.

It’s totally possible for you to find your community too… without having to do all that globe trotting!

It can be overwhelming to do the search on your own. That’s why I created CommunityFinders as the place for community-hungry folks to gather, learn, and ultimately find their home in community… or their next great adventure.

How is your community journey is going? How can I help?


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.


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!


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!


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.


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.


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.
