What are we doing?

Happy group photoNetwork For a New Culture (NFNC) is a group that was originally inspired by the German community ZEGG (acronym for German words meaning “Center for an Experiment in Cultural Design”).
                                                                                          NFNC seeks to build a sustainable, violence-free culture through exploring intimacy, personal growth, transparency, deep self aware honesty, equity, compassion, sexual freedom, and the power of sacred mindful community.

Here is a fabulous video of Spring Camp last year!


Join us in the creation of this event!  Please let Connie Wisesan (conniewisesan@sbcglobal.net) know if you are available for a volunteer position in support of this event!  Let your creativity and leadership shine!!! Connie would be happy to have a conversation with you about how your special interests and talents can be celebrated!

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 be 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”

Philosophically Speaking

“The next Buddha will be a community” says Thich Nhat Han, and “Community is a state of consciousness,” says Sabine Lichtenfels, co-founder of ZEGG & Tamera Community in Portugal (see Tamera.org).
Because we are Social and Spiritual beings, we can only evolve through truthful intimate encounters in service to a Sacred Matrix of Life.  We will go spiritually spelunking into the four great love caverns of consciousness – the Spiritual, Self, Other and Community loves.
We will draw from the book
“Terra Nova: Global Revolution and The Healing of Love”
by Dieter Duhm, co-founder of Zegg and Tamera Communities.
And from the book “Sacred Economics” by C. Eisenstein –
“Really the only security is to be found in community:the gratitude, connections, and support of the people around you. If you have wealth now, I recommend, as your investment adviser, that you use it to enrich the people around you in lasting ways”
