My first draw, years ago, was more on a metaphysical level as I also like to look at the larger movement of energy as outlined in systems such as the Mayan Calendar. I created a series of gatherings/meditations on key Mayan dates, the largest being in 2005 and pulling together 100 people. In the last few years, I've gotten my feet more on the ground, too, and helped bring the Awakening the Dreamer (Pachamama Alliance) Symposium to Bellingham in Oct. 2007. I've since been trained as a facilitaor and have partipated in putting on 3 symposiums. I want to be more invloved in doing this with youth and have a few things cooking that look like they may develop in this direction.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I'm not sure my mind totally grasps the magnitude of the transition movement--what's possible, what can evolve, but I believe that humans are on the verge of a leap in consciousness, both in concert with larger energies and with the innovation, passion and commitment of individuals coming togehter to create a new vision. I'm in, I've always been fascinated by human consciousness. I have a personal value of being involved in at least one volunteer effort.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I can be pretty helpful organizationally as I can see the big picture and at the same time dip down and see the details that need to happen to move the big picture forward.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
Hey Mommy-o thanks for all you help. I apparently could have added my presentation as an event here, but I didn't catch that part because I read David's post in between classes when I was unfortunately in a huury. I think it is too late now, oh well. It will be grand.
