Ecovillagers New Culture Weekend April 20-23

Intimacy in Community: Tools for Creating a New Culture

Ecovillagers Alliance is opening our Spring 2018 retreat to anyone looking to build community and to learn interpersonal skills that we all need to do it!

New Culture is an experience of examining every aspect of our existing culture and experimenting to find out how to create a world based on love and freedom rather than fear and violence. It is about creating sustainable, rich, intimate personal relationships based on transparency, delight, freedom, and community—and a sustainable world to enjoy them in.
