Tamera is a holistic peace research and education center where around 200 people work, research, study and live.
Based on the Healing Biotopes Plan – a global strategy for peace – we are building a realistic model for a future without war. Tamera is based on nearly forty years of experience and focuses on building community, freeing love from fear, allowing children to grow up in trust, nonviolently cooperating with animals, restoring landscapes, establishing regenerative autonomy in water, energy and food and building a global network for a new Earth, Terra Nova.
Currently there are 100 staff members who live in Tamera; the circle of people co-operating encompasses some hundred more. Many who work here are committed guests who want to help continue the project. There are no religious or ideological obligations. However, there is a common direction, giving the place its spiritual character. Joy in implementing and joy in new thinking, respect for all life, participating in all of creation, solidarity with all of its beings, honesty in relationships, truth in love and transparency in the community.
Practical activities in the project take place in the youth school, children projects, horse projects, gardening, energy supply, soil improvement, architecture, and landscaping. Aside from this, we mainly work in theoretical and social fields on the question of the implementation of a non-violent culture on this planet.
The best way to get to know our work and goals is at the annual Summer University. In addition to this there are workcamps and intensive courses during which the basic ideas are studied and deepened. Our guest season lasts from May to October.
