C. Callahan: „So another way to start a community-type project is to start with a small number of people with a fundamental agreement and commitment to specific context.

So, in a community we have a commend commitment. A commend commitment to a context. And if this context allows for communicating the feelings or giving feedback and coaching or being in processes with each other. Where you can grow up and unfold like a flower.

Then this is like fertilizer. This is like sunshine and rain and warm weather for us to unfold in. It sounds unreal but I`m telling you it`s not, it`s not. And it just takes some work to get there. And you can do that.”

C. Eisenstein: “I think that to be successful it has to have a mission beyond just we get together and have community. It has to be a larger purpose. Because real community requires interdependency. It requires that you need each other. If you really need each other, you can`t just leave. Or you can`t just kick somebody out. Because you need them.

You know, a traditional village was like that. You needed the Blacksmith. You had to get along with the Blacksmith, somehow. And you couldn`t do something to terrible to other people in the community. Otherwise you would suffer too. So today one of the difficulties in creating a community is that at some level people know that they don`t really need each other for their survival.”

Prof. Hüther: “Es kann sich ja keiner alleine entwickeln, sondern immer nur mit den anderen gemeinsam. Das ist auch etwas, was die Hirnforschung in den letzten Jahren gemerkt hat. Und was nun auch allmählich bei den Biologen ankommt, dass evolutionäre Prozesse niemals gesehen werden können aus der Perspektive eines Einzelnen oder einer einzelnen Art, sondern immer als ein Co-evaluativer Prozess, der immer in Gemeinschaft mit anderen stattfindet. Und wenn wir keine solchen Gemeinschaften mit anderen bilden, weil wir uns nicht auf die einlassen, dann gibt es auch keinen Co-evaluativen Prozess.“

C. Eisenstein: “But if you are all committed to a common purpose, then you do need each other. Maybe not for your survival but need each other like a band needs the bass-player. You know, a band needs the guitarist, without a guitarist you not going to play your music. So, you need that person. So, in a same way when a community has a common purpose then everybody is needed or everybody`s gifts are needed. “

Prof. Hüther: “Nur in wenigen Gemeinschaften gelingt es, dass die Mitglieder dieser Gemeinschaft einander als Subjekte begegnen.“

Roman Huber: „Kreiskultur = Auflösung Subjekt/Objekt – sind alle sind Träger, da ist Gleichheit ein hoher wert

Hüther: „völlig neue Art der Beziehung“

Adda: „Schafft Nähe, Vertrauen, Verbindung, welche ich suchte“
