Soft Technologies are concerned with human and social factors that facilitate human flexibility, encourage human initiatives, and emphasize human needs through research and education.
The UNC Foundation supports soft technologies that are dedicated to innovative research and advocacy in the realms of bio-energetics and energy medicine. The soft technology education and research programs currently sponsored by the UNC Foundation are currently grounded in regenerative well-being for the self, society, and natural world.

STORYROCK FARM AND UNCFOUNDATION
Ray Oldenburg (1989) identifies the “Third Place” as an important anchor of community life. An anchor that facilitates creative interaction and serves to nourish and regenerate not only the participating individuals but also the surrounding environment. In collaboration with StoryRock Farm, UNCFoundation encourages the establishment of a 'third place' experience.
StoryRock Farm is also home to a variety of beings both human and non-human participating in the exploration of the bio-energetic processes involved in establishing deep and nurturing relationships. More information about this programming can be found here: STORYROCK FARM
