Tamera

The Healing Biotope 1 Tamera in southern Portugal is an international training and experimental site for the development of peace research villages and healing biotopes worldwide. The goal of Tamera is to live together according to the principles of non-violent cooperation and to establish a center for global peace work.

Building off of 30 years of relationship between Gigi and Tamera co-founders, since the pilgrimage in 2009-2010, Beyond Boundaries and Tamera have maintained steady cooperation. There are two main areas of focus: The Global Campus and The Global Love School.

The Global Campus is an international educational platform that consists of a growing network of base stations. These are pioneer and model projects for the transition to a new human culture across various regions. At the moment it consists of the following stations: the Peace Community San José de Apartadó in Colombia, the Favela da Paz in São Paulo, Brazil, the founding group to build a Peace Research Village (PRV) in Israel and Palestine, the Permaculture center OTEPIC in Kenya, a peace group in Chiapas, Mexico, Schweibenalp Center of Unity in Switzerland and the Portuguese neighborhood project in Odemira.

The project follows the idea that establishing autonomous, decentralized communities of trust creates a humane future.

The Global Campus educational gatherings are designed to support the base stations in questions of food self-sufficiency, energy autonomy, water management, community building and the study of peace knowledge. The project follows the idea that establishing autonomous, decentralized communities of trust creates a humane future.

The Global Love School, founded by Sabine Lichtenfels, is a place for deep sharing and learning of teachers, peaceworkers and activists about the areas love, sexuality, partnership and ethical guidelines. They meet once a year in Tamera.
