Frequently Asked Questions
Ethics: what do we want to experience in Le Champ du Présent ?
It is an intergenerational place where we are attentive to our relationships, where we cultivate an awareness of what we do, and where we contribute to the growth of each person's talents within a collective. As in any village, we share, we eat, we exchange, we invent, we laugh, we sing, we work, we dream too... In fact, we experience an Art of Living, where we combine in our daily lives the values that make us human beings.
