The Power of Interbeing

July 15 - 19, 2020

P1150188

5 days of togetherness with self, farm, village, food and natural surroundings. Discover the power of interbeing with all of that is and learn how to create resilience in times of challenge and change.

We are opening this space to encourage connection: with self, with others, with surrounding world including the more-than-human and unseen. 

Let us come together to experience how this connection helps us relate to life and to navigate through challenges we face on a personal and wider, even global, level. 

On this path for connection we wish to offer a vision of future reunion and wholeness from within this age of separation and disruption. And for this we invite you to accompany us on a journey of inner and outer exploration. We will invoke various wisdom traditions present in our group as well as recently codified technologies such as NonViolent Communication and Permaculture while we integrate practices such as yoga & meditation with practical self-sufficient living skills, farm work and time to connect with the natural surroundings of this place. 

We believe that reconnection may help to guide us into a more balanced life while we hold the principles of nonviolence and agroecological living as central within the community-serving practices of living in a village.

We envision a world where wellbeing on a global level for people and planet is possible. The power of Interbeing week is our offering that we all may make a step closer to this possibility.

Robyn

Robyn Marie Bors Veraart, born in New York, USA, is a would-be monastic if she felt it was not too much of a luxury choice for her in this day and age.  Instead, she follows the advice of Joanna Macy who says: “The World is our Cloister.” After following a Master’s program in Transpersonal Psychology at Naropa University, she worked for a time deep within the bowels of society in a maximum security prison as a psychotherapist.  Now she lives and works with Nonviolence networks both local and global from her small family farm in Transylvania.  She is a CNVC certified trainer in NonViolent Communication.


Lars 2

Lars Veraart is truly driven to find a way to live in this world that is in line with his values of care for the Earth.  His love of animals large and small brought him through the study of Veterinary Medicine to 15 years work throughout France.  There he saw the degradation of quality of life - for soil, animals as well as people as the farms where he worked were forced to grow bigger and bigger...  His interest in alternative forms of...everything... led him to Transylvania where he, along with his wife Robyn, founded Provision, a family farm and learning center devoted to Agroecology and Nonviolence.  Here he joins a long and distinguished line of doctors who have (re)discovered for themselves the direct line between the health of soil, the health of animals (including humans) and the health of Planet.
