Sunday, September 27th, 9:30 am at The Ojai Foundation
9739 Ojai-Santa Paula Road, Ojai, California 93023
We invite you to a special day to explore how we can meet severe water conditions such as the current drought in California in a manner that heals both the essential being of water as well as the essential being of community and love.
Understanding this connection, we can re-imagine how we relate to water and manage it accordingly.
Perceiving the essence of love and community is a must before we can create a sustainable culture of solidarity, trust and caring for our common resources.
There is a striking parallel to how we (mis)manage water and our (mis)understanding of love.
Both of them carry a healing impulse in their core which is urgently needed for humanity's survival. Rajendra Singh, water specialist and Stockholm water prize awardee, has explored this field for decades, and has manifested real solutions to restore healthy water cycles, implementing these discoveries in India on a large scale. Similarly, Sabine Lichtenfels, co-founder of the research community Tamera in Portugal, has dedicated her life to restoring community at its deepest level, healing love through radical social experiments.
Sabine brings this force to her political activism. Both Rajendra and Sabine, together with next-generation leader Ben von Mendelssohn of Tamera, describe the systems change from fear to trust which we are asked to manifest in all areas of our lives until a truly new culture emerges globally.
They will present their knowledge, engage in Q&A's, and open a space for exchange.
We will also walk the land and listen to the dream of water and community that it holds, supported by the visionary powers and experience of Sabine and Rajendra.
Price: This day will be a benefit and we ask for some financial gift.
All donations will be shared between TOF and the presenters to help cover their travel and time.
Please be as generous as you can, as we would like to gift all those so deeply committed the care for this earth.

A Global Peace Plan – Introducing the Global Healing Biotopes Plan, Tamera the first
Healing Biotope in Portugal and the new book of Dieter Duhm, Terra Nova: Global Revolution and the Healing of Love
With Sabine Lichtenfels, co-founder of Tamera, author of many books, spiritual guide, co-founder of the Global Love School. Benjamin von Mendelssohn, next-generation-leader of Tamer, director of The Grace Foundation; co-founder of the Global Love School. Vera Kleinhammes, first generation born in the project, now coordinator of the Global Campus .
About our speakers: Sabine, Benjamin and Vera will share about their engagement for a future without war and their project's lived research for a realistic system change. For nearly forty years, Tamera has been working toward a model for a new global peace culture. Tamera is one of the most radical societal experiments of our times. Around 170 people live and work in this international peace research center, engaging with the issues of ecology and technology for regenerative autonomy in water, food, and energy; cooperation with animals; new ways of raising children; building communitarian forms of coexistence based on trust and transparency and most essentially, healing love, ending the war between the genders, and dissolving the collective trauma.
They will also include film material about the reality of landscape restoration on a big scale in Portugal, the technological research and the political work of the project.
Time will be given to an extensive Q&A . The event will include a presentation of the latest book by Tamera's co-founder Dr. Dieter Duhm, Terra Nova: Global Revolution and the Healing of Love. The book encapsulates the vision for a new Earth gained in this decades-long research and a plan for how a new planetary movement could prevail over the existing reality of war and exploitation. From the book: "When the informational matrix of peace becomes more powerful than the information of violence, the steering impulses of violence in the human genetic system will be extinguished. The vile war epoch would thereby come to its end. Through a history of murderous violence, humanity’s genetic system switched to a mode of fear and withdrawal; through elementary processes of trust and building community it will shift to cooperation and solidarity. We can give evolution a new direction when we succeed in flipping this central switch and entering new information into our genetic systems."

This launch of The Grace Foundation-America will be a 2-day invitation-only gathering with a fundraiser at the end for a small selected group of about 30-40 people. We want to convey insights into the “Healing Biotopes Plan” and listen deeply to how we can forge a strong alliance for the healing of our planet along the lines of that vision.
The Healing Biotopes Plan is a global peace strategy to bring about the most needed global turn from destruction to life within the foreseeable future. It is the result of 40 years of mental, spiritual, erotic, artistic, ecological, technological and psychological research within the frame of an intentional community, Tamera, going through radical experiments… and staying together. (Please find a further description of the Healing Biotopes Plan including some history of Tamera attached and/or here on the Grace Foundation website.)
Some of our core visionaries for this plan will be present:
Sabine Lichtenfels, co-founder of Tamera and the Global Love School, author and spiritual guide - will circle the power of functioning community and the healing of love and sexuality at its core.
Jürgen Kleinwächter, physicist and inventor - will lead us into his future vision of 100% renewable and sustainable energy systems for all of humanity – the Solar Age.
Bernd Müller, engineer and water specialist - seduces us into the perception of water as a living being and how we will treat it differently from that knowledge, this holding the potential to reverse the current water crisis on a planetary scale (potentially with a closer look at the situation of California).
Benjamin von Mendelssohn, director of the Grace Foundation, will elaborate on how all these different aspects of a whole life system change, brought together in one holistic model, can have a global impact.
Our SPECIAL GUEST Charles Eisenstein, author of “Sacred Economics” - views money as a potent leverage for fundamental change and will tell stories from the new narrative.
The event is laid out as a rhythm between concentrated input of these perspectives by the speakers with a lot of free and creative mingling time for deepening common questions, spending time envisioning together, potentially using an array of tools to get a creative process going for seeing the new culture and inviting deep co-operation.
Whenever needed the well-honed tools of inner transformational work developed and applied in Tamera over many years shall be put to use to deepen the common experience as well.
We will begin on Monday at 3 pm and close Wednesday at 3pm. Please plan to stay for the whole event, to help form a clear and coherent container for our experience together.
We ask you to cover your food, accommodation and transport yourself and contribute to the essential production costs.
The facilitation and the time of the speakers and the Tamera delegation is our gift to you!
Let us know your interest (and commitment for participation) as soon as possible as we really want to create the right setting for inspiration to flow. Space is limited for this event as we only invite 15-25 guests.
For all further information and to confirm your participation please contact our local organizer Katia Sol at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A group of young activists from Tamera Peace Research Center in Portugal will share about their engagement for bringing a future without war into being and the project’s research on embodying a realistic system change.
For nearly forty years the Tamera project has been working on a functioning model for a future society based on trust and cooperation.
Some of the main areas of this arising model include the healing of love, the dissolution of humanity’s collective trauma, the establishment of functioning communities, the restoration of nature, the creation of a replicable model for self-sufficiency in energy, water, and food, and non-violent cooperation with all fellow creatures. Around 170 people from various countries live and work in this “center for concrete utopia.”
Terra Nova: Global Revolution and the Healing of Love is the latest offering by Tamera's co-founder Dr. Dieter Duhm, sociologist, psychoanalyst, artist and author.
His new book encapsulates the insights gained in this decade-long experiment and describes the vision for Terra Nova, a new Earth – a world without war, a society without violence, love free of lies and a life free of fear.
Stepping beyond the limitations of materialistic thinking, the book takes its readers into the possibilities of global healing contained in the holistic structures of reality and formulates a global plan for peace.
“There is the world that we create, and there is the world that has created us.
These two worlds must come together. That is the goal of the journey.” --Dieter Duhm
The evening will include readings from Terra Nova, a presentation of Tamera's work as well as a screening of a short film.
You will be able to purchase the new book and other literature from the project.
Admission is free.
In lieu of an entrance fee, we ask for a donation to support our team and our event tour.
