Kabir MacDow

Kabir is a Communities of Light consultant, author and developer.

He has been involved in Communities of Light for 45 years and is now working full-time on the Communities of Light project and giving workshops. 

He also has over forty-five years of experience in education – elementary through junior college - and was one of the original developers of the Education for Life System, based on the writings of Paramhansa Yogananda.

Communities of Light

“Communities of Light” (Opens in a new window) will be published later this year and is a practical handbook for those wanting to:

  • Explore ways to set up a small, diverse, international community (residential or non-residential) based on higher values and principles;

  • Identify the relative strengths and weaknesses of an existing community, delving into ways to nurture the well-being and happiness of members, while fostering the self-sustaining aspects of the community as a whole.

Since the 1960s, an estimated 20,000 intentional communities or more have sprouted globally,  each unique in its characteristics. The interest in community living is not just a trend - it is a dynamic movement now gaining momentum.
