The purpose of the Network for a New Culture City Groups is to
contribute to recreating a world without fear and violence. City
groups do this by helping their members break through emotional and
sexual blocks, thus allowing their "life force" energy to flow freely.
We recognize the world as one community, made up of many
sub-communities, made up of many individual members. City Groups are
intentional communities made up of members who seek individual and
social change through group process. City groups help to change the
world by helping their members change themselves and to free
themselves of fear-based, energy consuming thought and behavior
patterns. The local City Group will contribute to its members'
ability to effectively be (or even live) in community.
We believe that once individuals become aware of who they are and what
their genuine desires are, they'll be inspired to act in a multitude
of ways that make the world a better place.
We also believe that these goals are most effectively carried out in
the context of supportive community, so one of our primary purposes is
to create communities as vehicles for social change, and to serve as
models for others to emulate. At the same time, we recognize that our
foundation is individual freedom and individual responsibility. The
local City Group will appeal to persons who wish to develop
relationship skills and who are looking for some form or structure
within which group intimacy may take place.
We trust the individual. We operate on the assumption that
self-aware, empowered individuals won't passively accept a world
rushing toward environmental disaster and in which the social sphere
is composed largely of cruelty, coercion, sadism, sexism, loneliness,
neuroses, psychoses, fear and violence.
Each local City Group will use the following avenues to
achieve its purpose:
- Exercises fostering intimacy, self-realization, trust-building, and
comfort with sensuality and sexuality
- Study/discussion groups
- Transparency (radical honesty)
- Intentional community formation
- Cooperative and collective projects
