Did you once live at or regularly visit Centrepoint Community?
Centrepoint was an intentional spiritual community, active in the 1980s and 1990s in Auckland, and lead by Bert Potter. The story of Centrepoint is one surrounded by complexity, controversy and shame. Many ex-residents of the community have felt that there is no space for the stories of their experiences to be voiced, or heard. The Centrepoint Restoration Project is for those people who have struggled to find ways to process or integrate their experiences at Centrepoint.
Here you may find a way to connect with others who had similar experiences, gain better understanding of the history, and discover some tools for moving on.
Would you like to connect with other people who understand the complexities of your experiences at Centrepoint? A group of ex-Centrepoint members are meeting over Zoom in June and July 2020, and forming new connections. This is a safe space, carefully facilitated to enable respectful honouring, in a non-threatening way. They would welcome others who wish to join.
