We are beginning to get a nice number of colleagues signed up for the
November 30, December 1,2 gathering of the Order. We would hope as
many of you as possible will choose to come. It is shaping up as a
pivotal event. I want us to begin the pre-meeting dialogue regarding
both the goals/products and agenda/process.
I believe after the first two gatherings we are ready to move into
action team mode. There are three areas that we will create products
and future work areas.
1. The Virtual Connectivity - This is the team working on our
communications and our web sites. We need to decide how we create
the means for us to communicate, do research, work with the people
(TWC) i.e. the Guild site and how we might conduct on-line training,
formation, model sharing etc. This is a large task and we need to
prioritize our products in coordination with the Global Guild and
Wisdom Repository work.
2. The Global Guild - This is the focus of our "caring for those who
care". What if we were to design and conduct something like an on-
line Academy for formation of "Spirit giants". Imagine a 1 year
program with many of us leading different modules for focused Guild
areas, like the Education Guild. What would be the constructs,
models, methods etc. that we would offer? What would be the flow of
the process? How might the participants be part of an on-going
research effort? Is there a University we might associate with? How
would we enable people to exchange models/ideas as well as access
Repository wisdom? Who are the "vocated" ones and how do we contact
them and engage them in the work? How would we let people know of
our services (check out <www.wiserearth.org>. These are but a few of
the many practical questions we need to explore.
3. Repository Wisdom - All three of these areas are interconnected.
If we are going to share our depth wisdom (i.e. NRM, OW, Profound
Humanness or HDP, Social Methods, etc.) how do we get it into shape
for sharing? What are the new understandings and experiences
regarding methods, spirit, social change, personal mastery etc., that
we have individually explored and how might we share it or model it
for sharing with others? What other publications/videos/CDs etc.
should we prioritize for Resurgenence Publishing? What are possible
funding mechanisms for all of this? How do we augment the fabulous
video interviews that the Wiegels have been doing and how might they
I guess there is also a fourth area and that would be expanding the
Order base. Who are the new people we have met that need to be part
of this work? Is there a formation component we need to begin to
These are some of the questions that I feel we should talk about
before the gathering and see if we can begin to bring the Order
Gathering into sharp focus. I have been doing a lot of thinking on
all three areas, but will share those thoughts at a later time. I
would ask all of you to add your thoughts and questions to what I
have written above. Let's begin the dialogue.
Grace & Peace,
