What we're about

PHC believes that to be human is to be interdependent and interconnected with all of humanity. The absolute sacred nature of each person is the beginning and the end of a just society. The guiding principles of all human interaction must be empathy, love, and respect.

We stand for a fully democratic distribution of power at all levels of society and economic justice through an equitable distribution of wealth. Society must also enable the full human development of all persons, including thier mental, physical, and spritual health. Our ethical imperitive is to build a world in which each person is treated as an end, worthy just as they are, and never as a means to another person's ends.

We have several meetings and events per month and will be happy to tell you about them. Each meeting is different, including political & spiritual discussions, community building, and General Membersip Meetings.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT CIRCLE

Malibu Diner

CSC’s MISSION STATEMENT: THE COMMUNITY SUPPORT CIRCLE IS BOTH A TASK FORCE AND A VIEW OF HUMAN NATURE. WE CHALLENGE THE COMMON BELIEF IN RUGGED INDIVIDUALISM AND SELFISHNESS, AND THE ISOLATIONIST VIEW OF THE HUMAN HEART. OUR SOCIETY TEACHES THAT IT IS APPROPRIATE TO REJOICE AND COMPLETE THINGS ALONE; ALSO THAT WE ARE WEAK WHEN WE NEED TO ASK FOR HELP. HOWEVER, WE ARE A GROUP THAT ASSERTS AND GIVES SOME LIFE TO THE FUNDAMENTAL INTERCONNECTION AND INTERDEPENDENCE OF PEOPLE. OUR VIEW OF HUMAN NATURE IS THAT PEOPLE ARE NATURALLY CARING TOWARDS EACH OTHER, WHEN THE RULES OF SOCIETY ARE NOT SET UP TO REWARD DEALING WITH PEOPLE AS COMMODITIES TO BE BARTERED IN THE MARKET PLACE. IN ITS SIMPLEST FORM, THE COMMUNITY SUPPORT CIRCLE’S MISSION IS TO BE OF HELP TO ONE ANOTHER. WE SEEK TO REMEDY NEED, MAKE REAL AND PALPABLE OUR CONNECTION, AND FIND THE JOY IN GIVING. WE FIND THAT ALIENATION WITHERS FOR BOTH SIDES IN THE GIVING PROCESS, AND MEANING RIPENS, WHEN HELP OF ANY KIND IS GIVEN IN A SUPPORTIVE, CARING WAY. Founder & Co-Leader: Rhea Lewin-Geberer
