The purpose of this thesis is to provide a description and analysis of an intentional community. It contrasts individual's intentions with their obvious* behaviour and endeavours to understand how and why this behaviour is not simply a consequence of these intentions, but is modified further by the individual's cultural background, i.e. values, sentiments, life styles and continuing social relationships . In the conclusion, I offer some practical suggestions ar1s1ng out of my experience which may help others who decide to lead a communal life or undertake action research on intentional communities.
