Mission

FCE encourages people, in a fragmented world, to discover new and better ways of being together. Living, learning, and teaching the principles of community, FCE serves as a catalyst for individuals, groups, and organizations to:

Communicate with authenticity

Relate with love and respect

Deal with difficult issues

Seek, honor and affirm diversity

Bridge the differences with integrity

Practice forgiveness for ourselves and others

FCE's approach encourages tolerance of ambiguity, the experience of discovery, and the tension between holding on and letting go. We acknowledge our human frailties, take responsibiliy for our actions and make amends where possible. In our work to empower others, we remember our reliance upon a Spirit within and beyond ourselves.

FCE

FCE is an educational institution with the rather lofty goal of impacting world peace. We offer several 2- and 3-day community building experiences to help people discover new and better ways of being together and also 4- and 5-day training events to prepare people to use this methodology in their work and in their life as a leader. One unique aspect of our work is that we teach groups how to use the *differences* they find with others as strengthening points in their work together rather than as distractions to their joint goals. We are working with Serb and Muslim educators in Bosnia but we also work with local groups in North America who are not at the same point of deadly behavior. One half of our annual operating income of approximately $800,000 is donated. The average individual gift we receive is $45.
