Lazzarus for us means, those forces that enable transformation. Those forces, in simple words, are forces of love.
Scott Peck says: I define love thus: the will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another‘s spiritual growth.
Christ loved Lazzarus: his love became a rebirth; a resurrection into a new state of being.
Ana Abreu and Michael Motteram founded Lazzarus in September 2004. They were looking for a possibility to offer an impulse in the cultural life. Their lives had given them the experience and the will to offer courses, seminars, and artistic activities where personal development, or individual spiritual growth could be encouraged and sustained. They have learnt that a strong individual is the basis for a culture-creative community. Many of the activities they offer they feel would play an important role in the development of more consciously active communities.
