Lori Gosselin

Community Facilitator  

Lori Gosselin is a pioneer in the field of authentic community building.  She has combined her passion for community, and her education – both formal and autodidactic – to develop a process for fostering a group’s evolution into community.  In addition to thirty years of observation of group dynamics and two years of academic study in organizational management, this process evolved from three years of research that resulted in a comprehensive step-by-step guide: Sounding the Drum: Community Building in the Digital Age.

Lori believes that through the building of communities we can make the world a less lonely place for the too many inhabitants who lack this basic human requirement for happiness, health and security.  She believes every home, classroom, social group and workplace can be a community.

She received her B.A. from Dalhousie University in 1980 and her Masters in Organizational Management from Crandall University in 2019 with a whole lot of living and learning in between.  She is also the author of another book, The Happy Place, and a blog about life and about community, lifeforinstance.com.
