The Tamera community a School and Research Station for Realistic Utopia, founded in 1995 in Portugal with the purpose of realizing the power of grace, which leads to openness and reconciliation. We do the inner work, and educate others about the power of grace through conferences held at colleges of higher learning, through peace pilgrimages, and through music theatre and other arts. The project was founded in Germany in 1978. In 1995 it moved to Portugal. Today 170 people live and work on a property of 330 acres.
The founding thought was to develop a non-violent life model for cooperation between human being, animal and nature. Soon it became clear that the healing of love and of human community had to be placed at the center of this work. Sexuality, love and partnership need to be freed from lying and fear, for there can be no peace on Earth as long as there is war in love. The ecological and technological research of Tamera includes the implementation of a retention landscape for the healing of water and nature, as well as a model for regional autonomy in energy and food.
