Born of storytellers, culture-weavers, and reckoners of a way long forgotten (but not lost), the Re/Culture Collective is modeling a response forward for our species and for this planet.

We were fellow seekers on this path and already established social change-making leaders when we were first brought together at the Global Love School in the Tamera Healing Biotope in 2015.  There a vision was born through the knowing that the era of the “lone hero” is dying, and that only together, through the willingness to engage in honesty, acceptance and thus radical love, can something truly different emerge on this planet.

Since then, the Re/Culture Collective has been re-culturing through visionary village-building events, new paradigm media, and a diverse array of artistic embodiments, always in the research of what a collective way truly means, and what power is possible when we find shared coherence.
