the initiator

CCI World News Service is the result of a private initiative - like all expressions are, not only in the CCI world - after attending a CCI international meeting in 2000 in Aotearoa (New Zealand). The initiator, Niek Sickenga from the Netherlands, is a former agricultural journalist, dedicated to CCI since 1982 and a CCI trainer since 1995. After ten years of practice with CCI World News Service on internet, the appearance of the site has been completely renewed in 2010 with support from Shayla Malek  (Australia), Wayne Buchner (Australia) and Joke Stassen (the Netherlands).

introduction to CCI

CCI wants to be...

a place where differences of personal conscience are fully respected and honoured. CCI is also a place to celebrate and honour our emotions as a source of growth. By creating the preconditions for the CCI process, we allow our human potentialities to blossom now and in the future in self responsibility. In CCI we practice being respectful to ourselves and others, sharing on an equal base as we learn in our fundamentals.
