A Global Network

Nexus is a global network of local events, inviting reflection on our own life stories through encounters with the arts, sciences, and natural world. We seek to cultivate a capacity for wonder and pay attention to our easily neglected inner lives. We mine the common ground of human experience, embracing different perspectives as beautiful and necessary. Each person’s unique contribution enriches others.

Central Themes

Journey

To journey is to explore new horizons. As we reflect on where we are, where we’ve been and where we are going we make sense of life’s events.                                                                  

Safe Spaces

Safe spaces are rare but vital for us to be authentic and vulnerable. When we feel safe we can share our stories honesty, without the need to advise, fix, or correct.

Listening

To listen is to be attentive to what lies beyond the surface; in ourselves, in others and in the world around us. We discover the contours of a vivid landscape shimmering with significance.

Story

Like a mirror, stories reflect our human experience. They help us to see what we haven’t seen before and to reimagine our own situations with new possibilities.

Beauty

We all need life-giving contact with beauty, not as an escape, but as an inner resource that injects hope. Beauty awakens us to the mystery of existence amidst the pain of life.

It was a very tight squeeze. The four of us were packed into a corner of the horse-drawn wagon, sitting on two small benches and huddled around a tiny stool. Petra was sidled into a small space next to a well-used table across from us and Stefan squatted on a little...
