Tamera Healing Biotope 1. Given the worsening situation in the world, more and more people want to come to Tamera in search of orientation, knowledge and perspectives. This presents us with the challenge to restructure our education program anew. We are using this wintertime to pave the way for this. Around the end of January we will publish more information and a basic framework of the education program. What we can say now is that we think of continuing and deepening our courses in our core areas of water and permaculture, energy, community-building, Love School and feminine peace-knowledge.

So far, the following dates are set: Deep Nature | Permaculture Designs | Holistic Leadership - Weaving Earth - Weaving Earth. Today’s world calls for fully alive, fully connected, fully expressed individuals. It calls for people with creative ingenuity, a desire to learn and the ability to collaborate and problem solve. It calls for people with an identity that is rooted in relationship to the whole, and who carry the passion and tools needed to respond to the great work before us. All of the WE mentoring programs support the emergence of these attributes and qualities in the participants who join in.

The following list describes some of the skills and core competencies that WE participants will develop. Deep Nature Connection Humans evolved in connection with nature.

About | The Laundromat Project. About The Laundromat Project Mission & Vision We amplify the creativity that already exists within communities by using arts and culture to build community networks, solve problems, and enhance our sense of ownership in the places where we live, work, and grow.

We envision a world in which artists are understood as valuable assets in every community and everyday people know the power of their own creative capacity to transform their lives, their relationships, and their surroundings. Theory of Change The Laundromat Project believes art, culture, and engaged imaginations can change the way people see their world, open them up to new ideas, and connect them with their neighbors. Values The Laundromat Project achieves its mission by bringing socially relevant and socially engaged arts programming to laundromats and other everyday community spaces in order to reach as many of our neighbors as possible.

Common Ground. 2015 iLANDing Laboratories. 2015 iLANDing Laboratory Program Following the successful inaugural year of the iLANDing Laboratory Initiative, we had the pleasure of programing a second year. The 2015 iLANDing Laboratory Program occuipied the Spring and Summer seasons with a series of experimental workshops/laboratories designed by members of the iLAND community and those who are aligned with the values of iLANDing.The Laboratories serve as focused forums and platforms for a reflective, advanced discourse around urban ecology, kinesthetic experience, and new approaches to interdisciplinary creative processes.

They draw on the history of iLAND’s programming, which has been cultivated over the past eight years through the iLAB Residency Program, iLAND Symposia, and the development of the iLANDing Method. The laboratories will continue to develop the iLANDing Method and Archive – a set of rubrics and structures that facilitate in-depth collaborative processes across disciplines. iLANDing Laboratory Workshops. InCOMMON Community Development. Neighborhoods - as the context of where life is lived - provide an extraordinary opportunity to alleviate poverty at a “cause” or “root” level. If a neighborhood is strong and thriving, it's more likely neighborhood residents will enjoy these same traits in both their personal and community life. many neighborhoods face great challenges... As a result of living in such environments, residents and families are denied many basic opportunities for life wellbeing and success.

The work of strengthening vulnerable neighborhoods, then, provides our community the strategic window needed to stop poverty before it even starts. In response to this opportunity, inCOMMON Community Development unites + strengthens vulnerable neighborhoods. Through a variety of community-based initiatives, residents are finding ways to rebuild their neighborhoods together, as well as setting a new course away from poverty and toward sustainable futures for themselves and their families.
