Love Journey Temple
Network for a New Culture evening of community building via Zegg forum and activities. Please come to our next gathering Wednesday, May 14, 6-10pm at LoveJourney in Sebastopol. Directions will be sent to you once you reply that you're coming. We request a $10 voluntary donation at the event to cover costs of the space. Network for a New Culture (NFNC) is part of the larger global movement to create local communities where transparency, self-awareness, love, trust, and compassionate honesty are the new cultural norms. We believe that it takes a village to raise a consciousness. We, of course, intend that our work and play together will be transformative not only for small communities, but for the community of the world as well. We will start with a delicious potluck dinner - please bring something fun and nutritious to share. We then gather for some bonding exercises, dance and joy. Then, as promised, we will learn about the ZEGG forum (see below for description) in a learning exercise then share our findings. We will share ourselves and express with the group. Feel free to stay after to dance, hot tub, schmooze, and snuggle. Please RSVP to John Horrell at [masked]. RSVPs help us know how many to plan for. You will receive another note closer to the date with directions and suggestions for the potluck. We'd love help with parking, set up, potluck clean-up, and take down. Best for all if we share the work. If you can help with parking, set-up, clean-up, please contact Rachel Dawson at [masked]. Forum is a facilitated awareness and communication training for groups of 12 to 50. It was designed in the Zegg community in Germany so the community has a way to communicate with itself. It provides an artistic way of personal sharing where an individual moves in the center of the circle and shares whatever is alive in them. Our true motivations, our deep feelings, longings, ideas, and emotions become revealed. This focus on transparency, sharing, and clarifying unsolved situations makes it an invaluable catalyst for growth. Forum is a personal process in a social context. We discover how our personal issues resonate with everyone, and learn how each theme is part of a common human experience.
