Cultural Programs

Our cultural life is an arena for creative expression and for drawing out of each other our best versions of ourselves. Most programs have monthly gatherings and occasional weekend events. All programs are open to the public and we welcome your interest and participation.

The Conscious Couples Network (CCN)
helps couples enrich, renew and strengthen their relationship.

The Family Enrichment Network (FEN)
FEN presents a curriculum for developing each member of a family and the family system as a whole. Seasonal events include:

The Human Relations Laboratory
Lab is an annual, week long event, developed around a theme, for example, compassion.

Men's Culture
Our Men's Culture program supports menís self-actualization, and encourages a sense of brotherhood through shared activities and intimate conversation.

Turtle Clan
The Turtle Clan invites you to  intimate evenings of sharing, fun and learning. Our meetings consist of a variety of social learning games that help us continually re-discover what is most important to learn now!

The Village School of Human Development
The Village School opened its doors in 1986 and  has helped prepare scores of people for a more relational and effective life.  The school offers programs by term and year. No courses are being ofered at the present time.

Women's Culture
Women in their teens to 70's meet once a month, to encourage and support each other by addressing the real and practical issues of our specific lives; and to explore what it means to be a good woman in this day and age.

Third Age
Adults, generally 60 and over, meet to discuss issues relating to aging and support each other in this life stage.
Though they say, "Aging is not for sissies," it's also true that a sense of humor is imperative!
