Five years ago, the idea of the Intentional Living House was started with the hope of creating a space to live intentionally in a diverse, mindful, and inclusive community. Over the past five years, we’ve hosted international dinners, conversations with professors, group meditation, poetry readings, and house events ranging from prom parties to Mt. Mansfield hikes.
We’ve also made an effort to get to know our custodial staff and our wider Vermont community, whether through helping out at community supper or at a Habitat for Humanity build. Every year we hold breakfast with our custodial staff and are conscious of how our actions affect their work.
Many members enter the house only knowing a select few, but over time, grow to become a part of a close-knit and supportive community. Living in this house is a time commitment, and is only as meaningful as the work each member puts in.
Please feel free to spread the word! We expect that there will be more applications than our 31 beds can accommodate. By applying, you are committing to live in the house if we can offer you a space (which means that if accepted, you won’t receive a number for room draw).
