Lupin Lodge


Join us for a week of diving deep into mindful conscious community as we practice and play in a loving container of Trust, Truth, and Transparency.

“Ancient Feminine Wisdom for Creating new Concrete Utopia” was the title to a workshop Sabine Lichtenfels, founder of the Zegg and Tamera communities, gave to some of us a couple of years ago. She shared her knowledge of the peace and love cultures she studied around the world. She also said “The NEW revolution takes place quietly. It wants to be born of the ability to have joy in life and to perceive. It takes place within you at the speed that comes naturally to you, when you no longer have to hide from the eyes of others.

What are we doing?
We are a group that was originally inspired by the German community ZEGG (acronym for German words meaning “Center for an Experiment in Cultural Design”) and Tamera.org community in Portugal.
We seek to build a sustainable, violence-free culture through exploring intimacy, personal growth, transparency, deep self-aware honesty, equity, compassion, sexual freedom, ecology, spirituality and consciousness, and the power of sacred mindful community.

Open Space Technology:
Open Space Technology (OST) is a method for organizing and running a meeting or multi-day conference, where participants have been invited in order to focus on a specific, important task or purpose. OST is a participant-driven process whose agenda is created by people attending. In Other words, come prepared to offer a workshop, class, session on anything you would love to offer or create. We will then organize a session to determine who presents what, when an where. We will put it all n big paper so we will all see who will present what and when and where it is.

The Container
We will be creating a “Field” of “We-ness” or connection thru experiencing healthy boundaries training from the start.

The ZEGG Forum will also be used as a tool to hold the personal growth process of the whole community as well as for individuals.

We will explore questions and issues emerging from our collective group, including “Power, Sex, Money, Love, Spirituality, Recognition”

Philosophically Speaking
“It is through the conscious decision to live in a sacred and courageous way that we attract the teachings, the information, and the understanding that helps us unfold all our gifts for the good of all. And once we do we start to feel the ecstasy of being moved by the power of the Whole. It means developing new ways of living, a new language, and a higher, more energetic, and intelligent kind of pleasure and joy of life, etc.”

And something about our culture:
“Sex-positive is an inner attitude. It brings the sex out of the taboo, from a culture of hiding and humiliation into a joyful, value-free, welcoming culture.” LuciAnna Braendle

Sacred economics
We continue to experiment with living a Sacred Life, which in part means to live life and finances according to a certain Sacred Economics, which is not just “by donation” or “barter”, but instead a sort of “Gift Economy”. What it might look like in a workshop is that the organizers figure out what our hard costs are, for room rental, food, advertising, insurance, transportation for presenters and camp logistics, etc. We add it all up and then divide by the number of people attending the workshop. So if we had $1,000 in hard costs, if we had 10 people, each person’s share would be $100. And then after this we are requesting that you look into your hearts and your bank account and give what ever makes you joyful to give. (Please give no money from fear, shame, duty, obligation, expectations guilt) Please know that what you give will make it financially possible for the next people, or more and more other people to come.
