About Us

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.

Fred will be offering a workshop

As children, almost all of us were shamed around our sexuality. It became hidden in dark corners of our psyche such that we couldn’t even talk about it. In this activity, we’ll start by supporting each other in unmasking and sharing the disempowering messages and taboos we took on as kids. We’ll then find experiential ways to shake this all up and release our shame so that we can step into ever more joy and vibrance around our beautiful sexuality. Come help us to release sexual shame and step into the vibrant flame that is our natural state of being.

He will also be on team facilitating Zegg Forum and leading our Men’s Group.

Paul Glassco has been involved with intentional communities since the mid-70’s, when he lived in a dozen-person community and was kitchen manager for two years. In the nineties, he became passionate about the ZEGG and Tamera communities, eventually visiting them in 2006 and 2011. Introduced to ZEGG forum, he has taken extensive forum facilitator training. Just this year, Paul has found sociocracy, a radical, ‘new’ way to run groups, communities and even businesses. Jumping right in, he has since attended three workshops given by Diana Leafe Christian, including an in-depth three-day introduction to sociocracy.

Paul will give us a glimpse into sociocracy—governance by peers. Unexpectedly, it’s both fun and efficient! This radical process of proposal- and decision-making is based on effectiveness, transparency and equivalence of voice. Sociocracy is a powerful antidote to endless and/or emotionally-charged work meetings. It avoids many of the known pitfalls of voting and consensus. And it’s cybernetic—it uses feedback loops!

Folks who use sociocracy feel more heard and empowered, and more work actually gets done.

They say things like “We’ve made more decisions in the last two months than we have in the last two years!” and  “The meeting process creates a sense of connectedness” and “Both inspiration and accountability go up”.

Paul will unpack the three mantras of sociocracy:“Good enough for now”, “Safe enough to try”, and “Okay, let’s find out”. Paul’s hour-long intro will whet your appetite for this streamlined decision process. Come hear how sociocracy can benefit you and any working groups you belong to.

What we are doing at Camp…. 

Philosophically Speaking

“The next Buddha will be a community” says Thich Nhat Hahn, 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.”
