France's Community of the Ark is one of the most successful and enduring experiments in utopian living. It has survived over six decades and numbers over one hundred residents.
Founded by Lanza del Vasto, a Christian disciple of Mahatma Gandhi, this remarkable Community offers an inspiring model of a nonviolent society, a blueprint for a world of harmony between people and their planet. Here is Mark Shepard's firsthand account of life there and why it works so well.
The Community of the Ark...is a joy to read!
