Save the Date: Tim Winton in Seattle and Bellingham Memorial Day Weekend

Hi Folks,

This is a "heads up" notice that Tim is now planning a return trip to the Pacific Northwest. More details will follow as they become available. If you're at all interested, you might want to note these dates on the calendar, and make sure you don't schedule any BBQs or family reunions for Memorial Day weekend, as this will be the only date that works for Tim's schedule.

The plan is for a 1 Day Workshop in Seattle on Saturday, May 25th, followed by a 2-Day Level II Training in Bellingham on the 26th and the 27th.

If you have any interest in attending either of these events, please email me at  This isn't a commitment, just a statement of interest, so I can make sure I update you with more detail when it is available.  And it would be nice to have a gauge of the general level of interest out there. I will be organizing the Bellingham workshop.

The PatternDynamics™ 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.
