Greetings fans of art and technology:
I visited ZEGG after my speaking engagement in Graz, Austria... June of 1997, after doing the Creativity Cafe Road Show around Europe. Jeanie and familyu's hospitaly was beyond measure. This new paradigm community is truely into recycling. Their property and organic farm is built on former German Secret Service Camp grounds the ZEGG Community purchased. I spent a heart filled over night there and met new friends from San Francisco and beyond. I will soon have photos from the trip posted.

Love means fully living your life
"Fully living your life" means a lifestyle in which every human being is
seen and honoured for their wholeness - that is, for all their feelings,
longings and needs, and for all their personal, political, spiritual,
creative, sexual dreams and aspirations.
A person feels whole when their deepest desires can be communicated and
lived. These include their desires for meaning, for permanence in
love, for a fulfilling sexual life, for solidarity and friendship, for
creative work that makes a difference in the world, and for spiritual
connectedness. Under such conditions of a fully lived life one is a lover
ZEGG SUMMER CAMP is an inspirational festival for personal development, for
exploring a political viewpoint on what is happening in the world, and for
participating actively in healing ourselves and our planet.

Village life and more.
Guests live together in tent villages. The village groups, facilitated by
ZEGG residents, will get to know each other through the forum process,
through dialogues and discussion, and through the activities that they do
together. Participants will work with the theme and issues of the
The FORUM is a psychological, theatrical and creatively facilitated
communication process for allowing emotional issues to be safely
opened up in groups and thereby bringing the members closer together
through the sharings and insights that emerge. Each daily forum group
provides a space where both holistic concepts and charged emotions that
rarely are revealed in ordinary conversation can emerge, be developed and
become incorporated into individual and group consciousness. The process
produces uncommon levels of trust and a deeper understanding for oneself
Those who want to take part in a village group are asked to commit the six
days from Sunday 3 pm until Friday 7 pm to their group. The village groups
are intended to create trust and intensity. Therefore the composition of
the group needs to be constant.
If you just want to "drop in", please choose the first and the second
weekend (Friday 7 pm until Sunday 3 pm.)
Those who can only come for a few days during the week will be able to find
contact and exchange in a special group of short time guests.
English speaking guests will have their own daily English language forum.
Teenagers will have their own tent village.
In addition to the village groups there are various possibilities for
movement, meditation, walks, making music and for common events and
