Human Potential and Spiritual Evolution
Folks at Ingenium have a common affinity for
"Human Potential and Spiritual Evolution"
where we combine our highest aspirations of
creativity, personal growth, and interpersonal connection.
All of our offerings are eclectic and non-religious. They strive to balance
deep introspection with a sense of lighthearted inspiration.
See below for current activities and check back for future developments.
Connection Games integrates various social modalities to produce "spontaneous improvisational, relational art", and where "vulnerable courageous connection is the new norm". Mihai Banulescu as well as other gifted leaders occasionally facilitate small, intimate gatherings geared towards building deep platonic bonds and growing community that feels like chosen family. Check our MeetUP site!
Special Meditations at Ingenium
We often begin with soft music or a simple guided meditation, followed by silent Sitting. Yoga or another special activity is sometimes offered too. Join us after for relaxed personal sharing. RSVP on our MeetUp site,
Meditation, Yoga & Movement Arts
Residents and guests are welcome to use the meditation space on their own during the day for sitting, yoga, and other movement or healing arts.
Art, Nature & Spirit
Join us for a fun exploration of creating in the natural world. Inspired by the work of Andy Goldsworthy, we'll engage together in film viewings, regional workshops, field trips and local collaborative pieces, both on the Inenium property and in the surrounding area. Check out our "Creativity Trail" when you come to visit, and/or send us a message if this nature-play excites your interest.
Compassionate Communication & Cooperative Processing
Open to those who have taken an in-person tour and would like to actively pursue residency. We meet with Peter Cohen, certified Compassionate Communication (NVC) & consensus trainer. Usually held the first Tuesday evening of the month at Peter's studio downtown Nevada City, but we currently meet on Zoom.
Dinner, Storytelling & Talent Night
Taking place a few times a year, this evening is about sharing wholesome food, enjoying good company, and celebrating creative passions of many kinds. Show off your own unique 5 minutes of fame, or just come, relax and enjoy dinner and and the show. Join our FaceBook group and our MeetUp site for details.
Informal Study of the
Diamond Heart/Diamond Approach
Some members and friends of Ingenium are exploring the "Diamond Approach" to personal growth and spirituality, a "dynamic, evolving teaching that leads to openness, freedom, and realization of the many dimensions of our human potential—especially the amazing secrets of our spiritual nature". Ask about joining a study group; and learn more about the Diamond Approach at this link.
