Finding Deeper Connections

Finding Deeper Connections

Rural meditation retreats in Andalucia
June 8 - 10

This 2 day meditation retreat is set in the stunning rugged mountainside of Southern Andalucia in an Eco-Education centre.

We will be focusing on how to find deeper connections with others, but also with ourselves and our surroundings.

The retreat will consist of silent meditation sessions, interactive sessions and exercises to explore and deepen the act of 'connecting'. There will also be some time to go for walks in nature and connect to the desertlike, rural landscape we find ourselves in.

Beyond agriculture or architecture, but borrowing from both, permaculture is a comprehensive design tool that can be used to better own communities, gardens, and lives. By mimicking nature to heal broken systems (both ecological and social) permaculture provides a variety of approaches for positive change.

10 Weeks to Sustainable Community(TM)
Community Building PowerTools: 10 Weeks to Sustainable Community(TM)(c)2015 is a potent workbook drawing on the millennial wisdom of our greatest spiritual leaders, thinkers, success coaches, planning experts, intentional community veterans and researchers. This is an opportunity to collaborate on the next-gen toolset for expediting the communitarian eco-village movement to next level success: thriving while enabling all future generations to thrive as well. Let's face it, the movement's track record -- 9 of 10 startups failing within 5 years or so -- leaves room for improvement. This project enables discovery of the reasons, motivations, mechanisms and "hidden" agendas guaranteeing failure + all the necessities of great success.
Gift-economy

Gift-economy

Social Permaculture
A gift economy, gift culture, or gift exchange is a mode of exchange where valuables are not traded or sold, but rather given without an explicit agreement for immediate or future rewards. This contrasts with a barter economy or a market economy, where goods and services are primarily exchanged for value received. Social norms and custom govern gift exchange. Gifts are not given in an explicit exchange of goods or services for money or some other commodity. Property is not a thing, but a relationship amongst people about things.[13] According to Hann, property is a social relationship that governs the conduct of people with respect to the use and disposition of things. Anthropologists analyze these relationships in terms of a variety of actors' (individual or corporate) "bundle of rights" over objects. Gift-giving in many societies is complicated because "private property" owned by an individual may be quite limited in scope (see 'The Commons' below).[12] Productive resources, such as land, may be held by members of a corporate group (such as a lineage), but only some members of that group may have "use rights". When many people hold rights over the same objects gifting has very different implications than the gifting of private property; only some of the rights in that object may be transferred, leaving that object still tied to its corporate owners. Anthropologist Annette Weiner refers to these types of objects as "inalienable possessions" and to the process as "keeping while giving."[6] Valuing and creating relationships, ressources and responsability a gift-economy is much more sustainable to grow independent communities. There is no debt, just surplus. The coordination of ressources, people and knowledge can be supported by appropriate technology to be effective and accessible. http://ecobasa.org, the gift-economy network for sustainable communities are working for this vision. By connecting people and sustainable communities in a global gift-economy network they facilitate the communication and exchange of experiences, knowledges, services and resources and create sustainable win-win relationships. By participating in this network, our movement can grow into a true alternative to our current global exploiting capitalistic system!
Uniorder - The Cooperative Society

Uniorder - The Cooperative Society

Only 3 steps are needed: Step 1: Human Rights – We must declare that we really want human rights for all people on the planet. Step 2: Fair monetary system – To 1st step become a reality we simply must create a fair monetary system, controlled by computers, where the wealth of the individual is proportional to the wealth of society. Step 3: Human resource optimization – In order to have progress, someone must work. Therefore, we must create a computerized social network. There are five simple tasks that anyone can do: Option 1: Do nothing. The cooperative society is inevitable. Option 2: Do not vote for political parties. Option 3: Spread the idea of cooperation. Option 4: Build cooperative communities. Option 5: Demand the government to implement the Uniorder. Discover the answers to these questions: - Why is inevitable to reform society? - Why is technically easy to build a paradise on Earth? - Why are most people not interrested? More on www.uniorder.org
 Uniorder: Urban Paradise

Uniorder: Urban Paradise

Video: https://youtu.be/U7a2zErCeuM Build a urban paradise without money - just changing the structure of society. Only problem: changing human mentality. Step 1: Human Rights – We must declare that we really want human rights for all people on the planet. Step 2: Fair monetary system – To 1st step become a reality we simply must create a fair monetary system, controlled by computers, which guarantees equal access to goods and where the wealth of the individual is proportional to the wealth of society. Step 3: Human resource optimization – In order to have progress, someone must work. Therefore, we must create a computerized social network where everyone is encouraged to help others and be helped by others. So everyone can get the most happiness and productivity. Positive point: "And though no man has anything, yet they are all rich." (Thomas More, Utopia, 1516) Negative point: Is against current mentality. Download instruction manual on www.uniorder.org
Strawbale Building

Strawbale Building

Earthquake resistant interior frame for hand constructed energy efficient housing using straw bales as insulation
Straw bale construction began, following the invention of the modern straw baler, in 1896. Construction began in Nebraska, USA and spread across North America through the 1930's. A worldwide resurgence of straw bale construction began in the 1990's. Well designed and built straw bale houses are energy efficient, long lasting and environmentally sound. The EcoCampus Straw Bale Domes at Kibbutz Lotan's Center for Creative Ecology are a site specific solution. The domes' internal structure is a hand formed geodesic dome of galvanized steel pipe. The structure makes the dome earthquake proof. The earth plastered straw bales passed a 3 hour fire test of the Standards Institute of Israel. The bales are superb insulation. The buildings need to heating in the winter due to south facing double glazed windows. Summer electricity use for air conditioning in the extreme desert climate is half that of conventional buildings. They were built by community members and volunteers.
Community Schooling

Community Schooling

Community School, The Nature School, Local Learning - Allowing children to learn within their social environment 
The Source Farm’s Nature School approach to education is to create a community school where the students can learn about their environment in a participatory way, as opposed to the chalk-and-talk style of conventional education. Nature School students spend a large amount of time outside of the classroom, learning from the natural world around them. We use a Montessori style of learning, which allows children to develop their critical thinking skills and to develop a relationship with the environment around them. Children will then use these same skills to navigate the world.

Zaježka

Zaježka

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.
