Consensual living is a process, a philosophy, a mindset
by which we seek to live in harmony with our families and
community. It involves finding mutually agreed upon solutions,
where the needs of both parties are not only considered but
addressed. Everyone’s wants and needs are equally valid,
regardless of age. Conflicting wants or needs are discussed
and mutually agreeable solutions are created or negotiated
which meet the underlying needs of all parties.
Consensual Living is broad and far reaching. It influences
the way we interact with everyone, from our immediate families
to our community and the world at large. It is about assigning
positive intent and looking for solutions. This can apply
in so many arenas. It can change interactions, even if they
are historically adversarial.
