Direct from Australia - we're very excited to have Tim Winton in Bellingham for this evening workshop!

PatternDynamics™ is an Integral Sustainability Pattern Language. It's a smart, accessible, and fun way to learn collaborative systems thinking.

At the workshop you will gain essential 21st Century skills:

  • Learn to see the Patterns that help you thrive through simplifying a complex world.
  • See holistic solutions to personal, organizational, and social challenges.
  • Become one of those people who can ‘connect the dots’ and explain why systems thinking is important.
  • Build a new set of communications skills based on 'collaborative systems thinking'.
  • Learn a tool for creating 'mass collaboration' to harness the power of collective intelligence.
  • Discover a whole new approach to creative design.
  • Learn a new way of expressing principles of sustainability.
  • Gain an introduction to a high level method of building organizational effectiveness.
  • Experience the ‘Source’ of deep meaning that facilitates high levels of self-organization.

What will I experience at the Workshop?

The PatternDynamics™ Evening Workshop, led by founder Tim Winton, is a participatory group process that includes introduction to the Patterns, group discussions, workshopping of participants' organizational challenges, and a simple set of movements related to each Pattern. In learning to use the Patterns participants collectively embody, discuss, and experiment with the organizing principles that sustain complex dynamic systems and experience the collective awareness and deep meaning generated through participating in a highly unified organization.

I encourage folks to check out the web page and the two webinars from this fellow. Some background on how this pattern came about both physically and intuitively. It would appear this is the pattern or language of Nature and it is being presented as tool to bring humanity back into balance with Nature. Are we capable of overcoming the challenges, and can we do it ?
