TCN Website Upgrade and Facelift!
We are happy to announce our website has evolved into a new shape and form and has some lovely new features available for you to explore! There is a lot available and this “tutorial” will help explain where to find some of the new features and what they might be used for. We really hope you will take advantage of all the resources we are trying to make available for the community. Keep checking back here as more upgrades and additional tools are forthcoming. This is just a taste of what we have been working on. There are SO many ways to engage. Please jump in and play with us!
A special THANK YOU to Josh Davis for helping bring this new look and feel to fruition!!!

Under COMMUNITY you will see REGIONAL GROUPS. This will lead you to a listing of all the Facebook groups we facilitate or are aware of for like minded tribe. Here are the places where our tribe interact. If you feel this could be your family, your people, your like minded team of action…. join in the conversation. Get to know some of the folks in your region and learn more about the core values of TCN and the kin code we have agreed to use as guidance in our efforts to play well together. Attend community potlucks and workshops and play dates! This is not intended to be a virtual experience. Let’s use the technology to build our community bonds and our knowledge base.
Under COMMUNITY you will see TCN GUILD GROUPS. Here are the links to our current Facebook guild collaboration spaces intended for individuals to work together on mutually beneficial projects and endeavors within the community. Talk to your fellow experts and interested parties. See what your needs are in your field of expertise. Work together as a group to create templates and tools and resources specific to your “Guild” or field of study. For example. if you are a wellness practitioner, you could go to the Wellness Guild and seek out Daniel Levin, founder of Healer Source, and see how you can work on this project which provides valuable resources and templates to wellness practitioners to help their businesses, like scheduling tools and intake forms, as well as providing a holistic healers directory with free listings. These types of resources could be created in any guild so that the whole guild may thrive!
This is a listing of personal projects, organizations, businesses and offerings contributed by our community members so that they might be shared with other members of the community. Another GREAT way to community source your needs and help build a thriving local economy and community.
