What is the New Culture Spring Retreat?

The New Culture Spring Retreat is an opportunity to experience a “field of consciousness” supported by a community committed to transparency of feelings and support for all chakra needs getting met. Some of the best New Culture presenters in the world will teach proven and powerful methods for Creating “Deep Harmony” in groups/tribes. It will also be a living experiment in community sure to be a catalyst in breaking down whatever is in between You and your fully expressed powerful self.

Each day we will be led in “The Zegg Forum” (a consciousness cabaret, see below) for freeing our True Selves up. It is an artistic way of personal sharing; a stage for whatever is happening inside ourselves. Here is an opportunity to connect with our true motivations, our deep feelings, longings, ideas and emotions in a safe, loving environment. This focus on transparency, sharing and clarifying unsolved situations makes it an invaluable catalyst for ones own growth. Forum is a personal process in a social context. Because we believe that each of our personal issues are exemplars of a general human issue, Forum elevates these personal issues, by putting them into a common human stage. There will be licensed Therapists, counselors and empathists for emotional/spiritual support for this life changing process.

The retreat includes other activities designed to create a community field of connected awareness such as 7 min. connections, transparency & connection games, Sufi dancing, Nonviolent Communication, the Heart of Now exercises, dancing, a talk on “The Sacred Matrix” (See - There will also be opportunity for Goddess Gatherings and work together integrating shadow, reclaiming power, voice, sexuality and trust for each other.

Some of our presenters include: Kelly Bryson MFT, author of “Don’t Be Nice be REAL!”, licensed therapist, and Certified NVC Trainer, The Fabulous, Flamboyant, French, Francoise Ginsberg, President of The San Diego Tantra Connection, Tory Blue, Certified NVC Trainer, Fred Burkes (Co-Founder of Sacred Connections) & Member of Planetary Transformation Team, Zora Facilitator of Biodanza, Charla Hathaway, Author and Certified Sexologist, Nikki Verwey, Tantrika, and Marriage and Family Therapist.

And I, Kelly Bryson speak from my own personal experience, that you will never be the same if you throw your heart into it. So bring your thirst for truth and connection, your vulnerable transparency, your dancing shoes and your child’s longing for a lot of fun. (because we tend to party a lot!!!)
