New Culture Cascadia MiniCamp 2014
Thursday October 2 – Sunday October 5, 2014
This was a 3½ day camp with workshops, forum, and much fun! it was also a fundraiser event for the 10-day Summer Camp Cascadia 2015
New Culture Northwest Camp programming is designed to create a sense of belonging and a context of co-creating the new culture that we want to live into together. All of our workshops are plenary sessions, meaning that everyone is together in the large dome space and there is only one workshop at a time.
Many of our daily offerings, such as the Daily Circle and Zegg Style Forum, are facilitated by a collective of experienced Camp community members. Below is the list of presenters who are facilitating the major workshops, which focus on this camp’s theme of Connection!
In addition to these special topic sessions, we have several open times where campers can present their own sessions. If you have programming that you would like to share, let us know when you register or at camp check-in.
Brooklin Kayce was born in the destiny year of The Path of Empowerment. Her life journey has been to find her personal power while transforming serious health and personal challenges along the way. Brooklin walks her path in a way that feels accurate to her personally (and encourages you to do the same), taking precious teachings from many sources which include: Spiritual Community, Conscious Language, Brene Brown’s work on shame, Shamanic Dearmoring, Family Constellation work, Clitoral Revelations with Teri Ciacchi, Raw Foods, Vitamins/Minerals/Herbs/Plant Medicine, her own personal artistic creations through Velvet Eyce Artistry, her balanced name through The Kabalarian Society, and DANCE! It is Brooklin’s vision to fully express her human potential on our planet; and in so doing, resonating with others to create profound awakening and healing as we enter/create/transform together into our new planetary consciousness. Join Brooklin twice a month in Seattle at Dance Embodied (Seattle’s only clothing optional ecstatic dance) which she created as her offering to you as a resource for your own personal growth as well as a safe, sacred space to find your ability to express yourself fully. Dance Embodied is a living event and community which transforms with us as we share ourselves verbally and in our dance. Dance as if you are already fully Embodied. Website: DanceEmbodied.com email.
Priya Kendrick is a dynamic, loving, deeply spiritual woman who puts her heart and soul into creating community wherever she lives. She is the sole proprietor of “Relax!” massage therapy and has mastered many forms of body work and numerous healing modalities, including Reiki. She provides holistic healing and deep relaxation to her clients. During her 2+ decades in Seattle, she became the Arch Druid of Emerald Grove, part of the New Reformed Druids of North America. As Arch Druid she led 8 rituals a year for 15 years and trained and initiated many others. She trained with the Human Awareness Institute and created Heart Play gatherings for two years in Seattle. Dance and music have always been a primary form of self expression for Priya and her close friends have delightedly enjoyed her original folk music, belly dance and ritual productions. She moved to the Columbia Gorge area in 2012 and just keeps on growing. She has established a women’s support group for handling the transitions of life and started the White Oak Grove Druid Circle in White Salmon. Her passion is connection. Connection with Nature, with People, with Life. Priya’s desire to have community is what took her to her first NFNC Summer Camp in 1999 and it was her desire to bring this work to her neighborhood that provided the spark for NCNW Summer Camp Cascadia to be brought into being.
Jack Pollard began training in Clinton Callahan’s Possibility Management four years ago, studying with Paul Rogers and Anette Schuster. He is the first Possibility Manager to be certified in the United States. He is excited to bring the potential of PM to the camp, and to take it into the world. This year he is surfing a rapidly changing life, building his community, and figuring out what he’s going to do next with his life’s journey.

Temple and Puja
Celia Waddell will both lead our temple team and present the Puja.
This temple will offer the full range of choices from cuddles to groups of eight. Working in groups of four or five, each of us will have the opportunity to request our desires. Touch is healing and groups give us a freedom that is harder to create in couples.
The puja is still in the process of being created. I’m leaning toward a touch and honoring pink puja. Again folks will work in small groups. I am also deeply interested in focusing on the divine masculine as well as the divine feminine.
Fresh from 4 months in Mexico, Kushad is ready to indulge his passion for living and relating in open community. In everything he does he gives his all, especially in his favorite areas of laser communication, tantric sexuality, DJ’ing world music, loving people and playing. He’s also excited at the prospect of getting to know and learning from each of you at camp. He brings 23 year’s experience facilitating laser relating groups that encourages participants to be fully open, alive, aware of their boundaries and free to express their desires in conscious community and in their lives. “Come join me in discovering ways to be fully satisfied in all your attractions and/or connections with those you care about. We will explore the Love-With-Passion Language of ‘Yes!’, ‘No!’ and asking for what you want. Banish the myth we call ‘rejection’ forever!” Website: justdance.ca email.
