How do we turn our dreams of love and harmony into powerful, long-lasting connections? Conflict is inevitable, but broken relationships are not. Join facilitators Amy Curry, Houston Alexander Ward, & Indigo Dawn on 9/25 to practice core skills for creating a "New Culture": Radical Intimacy is made possible by Radical Compassion.

*New Culture comes out of examining every aspect of our existing cultures and experimenting to find out how to create a world based on love and freedom, rather than fear and violence. There’s more information about New Culture (https://www.cfnc.us/new-culture/) at the bottom of this announcement.

- WHAT IS NEW CULTURE?
"New Culture" is about creating sustainable, rich, intimate personal relationships, along with a sustainable world to enjoy them in, based on transparency, delight, freedom, and community. In order to create a New Culture in our lives and in the larger society, we put on events that help us develop the skills we need to make that real, including communication, self-knowledge, presence, conflict resolution, and effective activism. These events can be an evening or weekend, and some last 10 days or more, so that we can "live" New Culture and turn new skills into daily practices. You can see descriptions of many of the 4 day and longer events on the Web: Summer Camp East (Mid-Atlantic, July 13-22, http://www.cfnc.us/summercamp); Cascadia Camp (Washington State, June/July), Summer Camp West (Oregon, August, http://www.nfnc.org/sc); Winter Camp Hawaii (January), and more at http://www.new-culture.org/
Along with building community skills, the New Culture community asks questions about what a healthy, violence-free culture might look like – for example, how do we raise children? How do we care for elders? What might intimate relationships look like? What’s an ethical and sustainable way to grow our food? We have lots of questions and not too many answers. The fun part is looking at these issues together and trying out possible solutions while we practice being non-attached, curious, and transparent and also being playful, creative, and connected. We have no gurus and no dogma – a diversity of opinions is welcomed and appreciated.
