We are a group of individuals creating Network for a New Culture (NFNC) events in the San Francisco Bay Area.
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 is takes a village to raise a consciousness and intend that our work and play together will be transformative not only for small communities but for the community of the world as well.
Our events take many forms and can last an evening or up to 10 days. During our events we usually participate in a group process called the Forum. 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.
