Butterfly Communities" open project ()We need a social and cultural movement for a systemic and coherent transition toward a fair civilization.

For this social transformation to take place, what we need first and foremost is to root ourselves into the new metaphysics of the Living Universe, that is based on the last scientific understanding and is conducive to fair and cooperative life strategies.

We can not expect to solve our problems behaving in the same way that created them in the first place.

"Butterfly Communities" is about another way of human organization that starts with another way of human relations, based on more integrative levels of consciousness. It starts with you and your group of friends! You can choose to help each-other; you can choose organize yourselves in economic cooperatives!

The main purpose of our seminars and courses is to assist this development. If we want a systemic transition, we need a true personal transformation that will reshape our relations and our societies. "Butterfly Communities" open-project could become a space of collaboration and fairness, a space of authentic and meaningful life, a living laboratory where we will prototype a better human society.

Only from a Universe-centered consciousness, able to embrace the whole Planet as its new self, can we overcome our social and ecological crisis, aligning our way of living with Life principles.

Moora Moora Co-operative (109 Moora Rd, Mount Toolebewong VIC 3777, Australia)We are a group of people concerned to develop an alternative to suburban nuclear families living with its particular pressures and limitations. Many of us are discontented with the noise, foul air, water and food of the city, with our polluted environment. We are concerned to get away from the overcrowding of city life. Others are particularly concerned about the isolation and loneliness of suburban living, its increasingly high cost, the narrowness of the isolated nuclear family, the lack of community facilities and co-operative living. We regret the superficiality of our human relationships within the suburban street, living near neighbours we didn't choose, the isolation of the non-working wife and the lack of continuous playmates for the children. Others primarily concerned with education are dissatisfied with the alienation between learning and living as well as with the forms and content of education. They see our intended community as an educational community: a community that finds life and richness in the pursuit of individual and community development.
