Glarisegg Castle – “A place for encounter and consciousness” – lies between forests, a wild river, fields and Lake Constance. The community lives on a gorgeous property with large natural areas and a private beach. We are connected by a shared interest in personal responsibility and the questions of our time, and we would like to contribute to the research on new ways of living. We value synergy between personal needs and input towards a shared vision. So we set ourselves the daily challenge of finding a balance between work on communal projects and the celebration of our shared life: via communal singing and music making, regular meetings in mandatory groups and intensive periods that last several days. Our tools are, amongst others, Community Building (Scott Peck style), forums (ZEGG style), transparent communication and possibility management. In 2010 we invited new people, particularly families, for a “joining period”, so we are now in the middle of a “second set-up phase”.

There is more scope for new members, too. A permaculture project with a central vegetable garden has been developing since 2012. There is a forest group for younger children. Part of the communal project is the seminar business, a small shop, as well as the creativity and instrument workshop. We are open-minded people, who see communal life as a possibility to grow together and bring a new culture into existence.
