Your contributions will get us to Tamera in Portugal to share important models for liberating love. But let's not stop there! What does the role of life play in the cultivation of our sexuality? How can we invite deep relationship with the sensory world? In the 21st century, the dawn of the hyperconnected world has caused many to deeply question love.
Rolling Stone has dubbed this era the "Millenial's Sexual Revolution," where sex, intimacy, and partnership are being "radically reexamined. The powerful idea that our happiness depends on finding our one true love - the person who will complete us. Some are indeed lucky enough to find a committed partnership that is passionate and resilient.
But for many, this is a fairy tale. Even if you find the one, you probably continue to feel attraction to other people, or your partner may cheat on you or maybe the business of daily life takes over and you stop having physical intimacy.
Or maybe you simply fall out of love. Yet with 7 billion people on earth in a world of hyper connection, many of us continue to be starved for intimacy and connection. So what happened to this story of happily ever after? In our society, love is usually a private matter between two people, causing many to wrongly believe that their problems are not shared.
Looking to the collective trauma of a 6, year system of patriarchy, Tamera realized the private wounds of love and sexuality are actually universal and global issues, in which their healing is key to Tamera's mission of creating a "future without war.
In their research, Tamera discovered trust and solidarity as the ultimate necessity for human relationship, and that their deepest forms are only possible in community. But how to create communal trust in the areas of deepest historical trauma for human relationship?
Core to these methods is the idea of complete public transparency in all matters of love and sexuality. To be seen is to be loved. The solution does not begin with a confession for monogamy, polygamy or celibacy but with an inner truth that is supported by the truth of others. Participation is part of the secret of love. This brings us inevitably into the field of ethics.
Participation means trust, resolution of fear barriers, overcoming prejudices, and throwing back the bolts with which we have locked our hearts. To become capable of love, we must develop a system of life in which real trust between people arises and grows.
It is this trust that opens the heart and the body, dissolves the body armour and heals the soul. The filmmakers have been invited to this year's Global Love School, which will serve as the backdrop for this film. Our filming will begin at Tamera's annual Global Love School in May and continue into other dynamic areas of the Tamera project.
Video is the most powerful tool we have for spreading powerful memes throughout our globalized culture. Our short film will illuminate the core mythology of Tamera, along with the architecture of their social systems that create a culture of peace.
The film will also include links to further education resources and materials to support the spread of these practices on a global scale. The film will be widely released in Sept , to coincide with the North American book release from their co-founder Dieter Duhm.
We need nothing more urgently today than an idea of how it could go on. Most futurists are thereby thinking of new systems for energy, food, urban living, markets, and economy. Only a few visionaries also include the human inner world in their survival strategies. Here are a few examples: The film was released to the community, and screened at festivals and hundreds of activist gatherings all over the world. The film has been seen over , times and accelerated the vision of the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
The short film continues to be a massive success, garnering over 3,00, views online and spurring numerous other "Story of" films. Here's a breakdown of our budget: Above our first goal we have ambitious stretch goals to turn this first film into a series or even a feature documentary. We will complete a 3 part film series, delving into how we can form community around our living into this Healing of Love, as well addressing other topics in the Love Revolution such as LGBQT issues and more.
Sacred Economics is one of his most popular web films, in collaboration with author Charles Eisenstein.

In addition, he has been producing short films for social change-makers through his media collaborative, ReCultured Media. He is also the director of the massively popular web series The Story of Stuff - seen by millions all over the world.
Louis co-authored the recent book Sustainable Revolution exploring permaculture in ecovillages, urban farms, and communities worldwide. We are grateful to have these wise and powerful women as project advisors: In the presence of these courageous women, coming together to weave rituals of peace which they would take back to their families and communities, she heard story upon story of the wisdom, fearlessness and life-loving vision of the feminine spirit.
She has also spent time at Tamera in their Love School, and will provide an important voice for the perspective of women in the healing of love. Since then it has hung in my office, inspiring my work ever since. Geo has graciously offered to gift another print in support of our campaign. Each card is uniquely designed to gently open the door and invite you to enter into a deeper conversation with yourself, and those close to you — ultimately, impacting the quality of your relationships and sexuality.
Tamera has focused their work on the issue of conflict between the sexes. This creates obvious tensions around larger issues of gender, sexual orientation and the historical problems of privilege and oppression. Although Tamera's work is hetero-normative, our goal as filmmakers is to create a piece inclusive of all peoples.
This is a monumental task, and one in which we will most likely fall short, especially given the context of where we will film.
We would love support in this area and we invite any feedback, questions and ideas to contact ianmack. The perspectives we offer in this film will most likely be offensive to people comfortably living in the dominant paradigm. Our goal is not to pit one lifestyle choice against another, nor is it to please everyone.
However, with that said, our team has a strong track record of project sucess and is extremely determined to the realization of this project. Questions about this project?
