Event Description

How we work together in our Transition projects is a matter of Heart & Soul.

Our group structures and processes can impede or expedite our goals. Come learn a cool group process tool that can be used in any Transition project. It's simple and it facilitates a circular flow for equal participation, draws on the collective creativity of the group, and keeps groups focused on the purpose of the project.

From Transition Whatcom Guidelines:
"Transition Whatcom will use meeting structures and group processes that facilitate respectful conduct and promote free expression, safety, and allow creative wisdom to emerge."

Jamie there is a neat story behind the mandala painting. I found it as a greeting card about 20 years ago. I saw that the artist (Nick Gadbois), lived in Seattle near my sister, so I called him and we connected. He showed me the original and told me his technique. The title of the painting is: "A Radiance Within My Heart. Give me a call for more details.

I would love a copy of that painting that is in this site, sooo lovely! Definately speaks to me....would you email it to me a version that is large enough to be my computer desktop!?
Love, Jamie

Hi All, I will be leading a yoga class at Bloom right before the group meets, from 1-2pm. I invite anyone and everyone to join me. Please bring your own yoga mat if you can.. I can bring two extra. Donations are welcome. See you Sunday.

Hi Alicia, the process is from a workshop David and I attended a couple years ago put on by the local organization called Collective Intelligence solutions. ( Robert Bystrom was one of the instructors. They used a process they called a Question Driven Segue. I thought it was brilliant and simple and I've since used it in a few group situations. When I talked about it at the last Heart and Soul meeting Kathryn Fentress got sparked and we started talking about sharing with the next Heart and Soul meeting. I love the way the tool helps groups side step confrontation, debate, cross talk and only assertive people sharing. (Of course each of these modes has value at times, but they can become the default mode and do have their limits) Hope you can make it.

Is there a name for this process? I'm interested but it will depend on how the week plays out.

Angela, Kathryn, Tristan - Your combined energies are a gift to our community!

My calendar on the Nov 22nd 'Heart & Soul Focus group' shows another event listed, although I will know later in the week if I can instead join with you.

I can't drive so far in the dark. If you could end the event so that I don't have to drive home in the dark, I might be able to come, or have the event out here at my yurt near Maple Falls. Then I could come any time. 8-)
