Michael Rios is an entrepreneur and practical visionary with a creative genius for freedom and empowerment; as some have said, “Michael doesn’t have a box to think outside of.” In 1964, he founded a commune based on service, spirituality, and sensuality that lasted 30 years and (among other projects) provided emergency shelter and support services for homeless people and troubled young adults. In addition, he started one of the first domestic violence hotlines in the US in 1971, and one of the first computer business in the US in 1976. Michael co-founded and lives at Chrysalis, a small urban intentional community in Arlington, VA, whose mission is to support activists and healers (www.chrysalis-va.org). Since 2004, he has been a major organizer of Network for a New Culture’s East Coast Summer Camp (www.nfnc.org, www.cfnc.us) and other events aimed at creating a culture based on awareness, compassion, and freedom rather than on fear and judgment. In 2011, Michael became the director of Abrams Creek Center (www.abramscreekcenter.com), a retreat center in the mountains of West Virginia. His current passion is creating an “intentional village” there and in the nearby town – a place where people live consciously with and near one another, building a life based on personal enterprise and freedom, economic independence, and a web of social interconnectedness (http://aciv.cfnc.us).
Full time scientist, part time Dwarven barbarian and all around extravert, Dr. Ian Gould has taught polyamory workshops, facilitated discussion groups and led book study groups since 2012. Self-described as “ruthlessly dedicated to humility,” Ian strongly believes in the healing power of community, service and teachability. If he could put on his wizard hat and robe and change anything in the world, he would dismantle patriarchy and put a fabricator in every home.

Dawson Driver is a fountain of love. Their passion is to create spaces for anyone and everyone to feel seen, heard, and loved. And they strive for this as an organizer and presenter for Center for New Culture (http://cfnc.us/) while living and spreading New Culture wherever they go. To realize their larger dream they are pursuing a degree in psychology for counseling and seeking out new learning opportunities in facilitation, personal growth, and intimacy all the time.
