Nexus is a network of people who either through their professional or personal lives have seen the importance of creating settings where people can process their life experience. In today’s busy and fragmented world Nexus provides meeting places where dialogue and sharing of life can take place. Nexus assumes that life gets richer when we help one another make sense of life’s experiences, both ups and downs. It facilitates networks where mutual learning and processing of life can be enjoyed.
Nexus is connected with local groups and national organizations that may or may not carry the Nexus name. Nexus arranges events where important aspects and applications of its four central ideas are presented, discussed and deepened.

Finding meaning helps us to act. It makes us learn. Meaning is the sense to see connections, as well as our place and significance within the course of life’s events. We need others to shape meaning.
