Cheryl commented on Digital Béguinage for Women

Thank you for the amazing feedback everyone! I had to take a hiatus from the challenge but am back to share a very interesting article I saw in the news today: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1339363356105358&id=128645453843827
And i also wanted to say that I would love to collaborate with you all -- either in the challenge (if we still can) or otherwise! Wingee Sin - will definitely check out your site! Please drop me a line if you'd like to investigate further at cheryl.miller@dlii.org :)(btw I just turned 50 myself;))
Lillian J Warner - Béguinages were communities of (semi) religious women who were lay members of the church and lived in "cloistered" areas in service to each other, the church, and the community. I see this idea as something like that but without a heavy religious focus - though the community can certainly be spiritual, even monastic, depending on the people. I don't see the idea as separatist per se (depending on what you mean by that;)), but "complementary" -- though the definition of this is also personal imho.
Kate Rushton - the community creates financial in(ter)dependence through enterprise. As such building & deploying financial tools to promote independence and a cooperative economy would definitely be a concrete objective.
Does this make sense? ;)
Thank you all -- and Deborah Dennis too -- for the kind feedback and support!!

Thank you, Kate Rushton ! Will do. :)

Cheryl commented on Money as a tool of consciousness

Thank you for this insight André Fernandes ! It gets me thinking about the psychological impact of money and the value of "complementary" currencies - tied to communities and values. I'm thinking about this - Digital Béguinage  - and would investigate an element of #banking (i.e. Coop banking) and #currency inspired by your contribution.
