International Fellowship of Chivalry-Now
International Fellowship of Chivalry-Now (IFCN) is an informal, worldwide
fellowship of diverse people who are interested in applying updated chivalric principles in their lives.
We are not a chivalric order, civic organization
or fantasy group. We have no membership fees or collection plate and seek no monetary donations. As a group, we have no hierarchy. We welcome
people of all ages and faiths, along with atheists and agnostics.
We view our
lives as individual quests.
When you view life as a quest, it
opens up new vistas of meaning to everything you do. You purposely
learn and grow from your daily encounters in order to experience
life in its full abundance. It makes you more aware of the moment,
more thoughtful - and therefore more authentically alive. It carries
you away from a state of mindless following, to a state of personal
autonomy, where conscience, reason and intelligence combine to
complete who you are.
Chivalry-Now is a cultural philosophy,
for want of a better term, that encourages our human capacity to
apply reason to conscience in order to reach our highest potential.
We freely embrace a Code of Ethics called the 12
Trusts that guides us to reach that potential. For those
who want a more in-depth understanding of our ideals, we present
a timeline of philosophical concepts that form the foundation
of our quest. These Concepts reveal the deeper meaning of our cultural
inheritance, in order to regain the comprehension and enthusiasm
of what was lost.
the ideas expressed by Chivalry-Now interest you, and you
wish to get more involved, please join us on Facebook and introduce yourself. if you feel moved to know
more, we have a comprehensive website, with hundreds of articles, and two books that
explain the fundamentals.
you for visiting the IFCN. We hope that you find what your
soul is searching for.
