Grace Foundation
"The Grace Foundation raises funds and engages people with resources (money, knowledge, influence) to invest in a system change. [...] We further the creation of Terra Nova by supporting a network of comprehensive cultural models which we call healing biotopes. These centers aim to be self-sufficient thus laying the base for an alternative economy, decentralized and free from the conventional mechanisms of interest, debt and exploitation. This alternative economy is key to humanizing money. We support the implementation of this network by funding education and knowledge-sharing."

"Established in 2007 by Sabine Lichtenfels and Rainer Ehrenpreis (Schweibenalp). The original inspiration to create a conduit for diverting money into large-scale peace work came to Sabine Lichtenfels and Benjamin von Mendelssohn during a pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. The strategy of building models for bringing about system change is based upon a political theory developed by Dr. Dieter Duhm and brought to life in the community of Tamera in Southern Portugal which we recognize as the first model ‘healing biotope’."

Ethical Principles:
"1) Work towards decentralized regional self-sufficiency in water, food and energy thus providing the complicity-free material base for a new culture.

2) Give equal attention to inner and outer peace work. It is seldom that a project fails due to external pressure alone. Egoic structures like struggles for power and attention, jealousy and envy need to be addressed and transformed for the healing of our culture of separation. This work must be held in balance with the needs of and the service to the larger whole.

3) Accept and address love and sexuality as aspects of the dominant culture which are in particular need of healing. These issues must be released from the domain of privacy and brought into public discourse for the healing and learning of all.

4) Support a spiritual practice which places the sacredness of life at its center.

5) Create an economy based on reciprocity, communal sharing and giving. One in which economy and ecology are restored to their right relationship – with economy serving ecology."

Castellers, human towers of Catalonia
The 27th Human Tower Competition in Tarragona, Spain. The ‘Castellers’ who build the human towers with precise techniques compete in groups, know as ‘colles’, at local festivals with the aim of building the highest and most complex human tower. The Catalan tradition is believed to have originated from human towers built at the end of the 18th century by dance groups and is part of the Catalan culture.
