Monache Meadows Encampment: A multi-level cultural intervention
by Roberts, Jessica, M.A., Prescott College, 2009, 118; 1470774
Abstract (Summary)

Monache Meadows Encampment is an example of a multi-level cultural intervention designed and implemented by and for the community. While the “levels” of the intervention — the natural world, spiritual practices, and community living — are today considered separate fields or specialties, taken as a whole, they echo an indigenous lifeway, serve to increase cultural identity, and therefore resilience. Through my research I have shown that as each “level” has been shown to be beneficial, the power of Monache is manifested in experiencing all “levels” simultaneously, in their entirety, rather than fragmenting them.
