View this email in your browser

Happy Solstice, TCN Kin!  Wishing you the best as we continue on past the midpoint of this latest journey around the sun! We hope you enjoy hearing about what people in our community are up to this summer as well as some good tools for embodying a practice of right relationship in our everyday lives. We hope the seeds of all our intentions, collaborations, and new beginnings spring forth with grace and ease to bear fruits worthy of our awe and splendor.

Blessings from the deepest depths of our hearts!

Introducing the 
TCN SEED INITIATIVE!

For any who didn't see it last month:

 
As we maneuver through the continuing evolutions and emergences that are TCN’s unfolding, we have found that the requests from community regions to host TC gatherings have far outweighed our capacity to produce them!
 
We find this to be not a problem but a tremendous compliment. In honor of this huge interest in bringing the activation and electrification of TC programming to as many communities as wish to receive it, we have developed the TCN Seed Initiative. This will create templates and systems of mentoring, community consulting, resources, and support to help empower local leadership to produce TCN Seed Gatherings themselves with our guidance around specific programming elements that make TC events such epic networking, relations building, and activating experiences...

Wisdom Keeper & Youth Council

CANCELED
 
Earth Peoples United has chosen to enter its own incubation phase and tend to hearth and home, community development, and tending to the land as directed by spirit and by listening to their hearts. EPU has therefore decided to cancel its 8th Annual Wisdom Keeper and Youth Council for this year, originally scheduled for August 7th-12th, 2014 so that energies may be honed, harvested and effectively directed for a more potent resurgence next year with new collaborations and weavings more firmly in place.

COMMUNITY CALL TO ACTION

 

Try out an APP that helps you organize your consumer spending
so that it reflects your principles:

BUYCOTT



Excerpted from the website:

"When you use Buycott to scan a product, it will look up the product, determine what brand it belongs to, and figure out what company owns that brand (and who owns that company, ad infinitum). It will then cross-check the product owners against the companies and brands included in the campaigns you've joined, in order to tell you if the scanned product conflicts with one of your campaign commitments."

In other words, if you don't want to support a particular company or a particular practice, this APP will tell you if the products you are buying are owned or affiliated with companies participating in those practices.
 
ACTION: Download Buycott and try it today!
  • Go to www.Buycott.com
  • Download the free APP
  • Join some campaigns that you agree with
  • Next time you go shopping, scan the bar codes on the products you are selecting and see what the APP has to say
  • Enjoy the fruits of our TCN family network's research!!!
