Culture Caravan (Canada)Culture Caravan is a Nomadic Village committed to healing & creating a regenerative culture.
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.

The composition of participants has dynamically changed since the onset and continues to change, however we have been continuously striving to maintain the mentality of the initiative at the focus of our attention.

10xliving ()The goal is to discover and develop approaches to community living in small groups of 150 people or less that consume less time, money and natural resources than the status quo while producing a higher quality of life, as measured through an app. This data will be shared freely on social media or for non-profit fees in person for the purpose of learning what does and doesn't work in small communities. In a broader picture, such research over time gathered by an app may help the first 100 people on Mars or the Moon avoid mistakes and copy things that work out particularly well. On earth, it can provide guidance to others wishing to form pockets of sustainable living. These niche-cultures serve as seeds in the larger culture and perhaps 5% of the most successful protocols will make their way back and be adopted over time to the benefit of the larger culture.

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.

The business, financial and marketing directors all work as a team and report to the board. To be a worker-owner, a community member must be employed for one year, be an employee in good standing, and purchase a membership share of $500.

The community lives across the river from the retreat center in an ecovillage setting. We have regular community sharings, and three times a year we close for a four-day community renewal where we join together for training, fun, and community building.

We live a rich, full life here. We delight in an abundance of diverse people, innovative ideas, healing practices, friendships, and challenges.

From our credo: "Our primary service is to provide a healing retreat and conference center that promotes holistic health and spiritual growth. We mutually support and respect each person's dignity, and awaken to the Spirit within each of us that acknowledges we are all One… It is our hope that the thriving Community which we create will be an inspiration to others in their exploration of lifestyle and community. We also extend ourselves to the greater society in which we live, the world community, and commit ourselves to being socially, spiritually, politically, and environmentally responsible."

Ethnomir ()The UNESCO general Declaration of cultural diversity: "Cultural richness of the world – is diversity, revealed in dialogue" was unanimously approved in 2001. The enactment of the Declaration once again proved to the states that intercultural dialogue is the best guarantee for peace, and it raised cultural diversity into the rank of the "common property of the mankind". The Declaration manifested the formation of an open, creative and democratic world, and it became the fundamental document of the new ethics, proposed by UNESCO in XXI century.

We were based in Timisoara, the most developed part of Romania, we were fortunate to see the 'modernisation' but also holes in its glamorous picture. We decided to set ourselves 'separately' from polution and over-consumption. After visiting ecovillages in Europe, we came home with a quite clear vision which was including LETS, solar panels and permaculture designs.

Anarres – Ca' Favale ()We never appreciated the ideas and concepts of ecovillages since 2002. Nonetheless, we continued to be present in the list of ecovillages thinking that it could lead to some confrontation. After many years, we came to the conclusion that ecovillages, as much as we know them, aim mainly to settle into "civil society" and are actively seeking no confrontation with the world surrounding them. Different from the perspective of fighting domination and exploitation and achieving mutual support, these places act as "access concentrators". Traffic goes in, but seldom comes out – if you understand the difference. As a matter of fact they represent the evolution of old society, in a greener civil society. But war, science, economics, (or, in just a word – power) are not questioned. When you visit an ecovillage you will generally pay per stay. In some of them you won't be able to even cook for yourself. In some others, you won't be able to simply put your tent. Paid services will be present for everything you can imagine. In some places you will have to pay just to hear some guru speak.

Our main intention is to provide information for all who need it and are asking for it. Our intention is to further awareness, growth and health by investigating about alternative and holistic ways and giving free information to anybody who looks for it. We are using mainly the Internet for this and offer at our Web site articles, answers to  questions, discussions, download ebooks, videos and tapes. This is done by permanent members and volunteers of 'FalconBlanco'. Members are persons who are living and working at the place FalconBlanco – or members who are supporting our intention in one or the other way and not necessarily living at our place. We also offer workshops, lectures or other public events with the same intention. There are individual treatments available at FalconBlanco like Yoga, Reiki, Shiatsu, EFT, initiation into meditation and more, depending on the members and their abilities living at FalconBlanco. All offered service is for free, never there is money involved. All volunteers are doing their work because they are motivated and engaged in our projects and never will receive or ask for money. With our intention we want to start a 'positive chain reaction'. Helping our fellow human beings and every thing which is part of our world and in need where ever this are showing up, without expecting any reward. Never money is involved or should be a motivation for our doing. Then we all can make the surprising experience that as more we give, as more comes back… And with this we are rising onto another level, beyond the narrow level of materialistic behavior and thinking.

Zajezova ()Zajezova is a widely spread village consisting of small groups of settlements. The greater part of its original inhabitants has gradually moved away during the second half of the 20th century. From 1991 several NGOs have started to be active in Zajezova – their focuses being traditional handicrafts, folk architecture and environmental issues. These NGOs have attracted (and are still attracting) a great amount of people, of which some decided to settle in Zajezova and its surrounding settlements. The number of inhabitant in Zajezova has been growing since then. The newcomers and the original inhabitants are in most aspects different, however, many of them cooperate in their effort to make Zajezova even nicer. A part of the inhabitant that are more actively involved in different both non-formal and formal projects call themselves „community of Zajezka". Their creativity and enthusiasm to live freely and in harmony with nature made Zajezka a place that inspires other freely thinking people not only from Slovakia. Some of our local initiatives are pioneering and unique in Slovakia: strawbale building, community run primary school, non-formal forest kindergarden, food bank cooperative, natural reserves protected by the municipality, dunkeltherapy retreats, to name just a few.
