Getting started shortly with the next Gift Circle

Comment by Deborah Hart Yemm on September 17, 2015 at 10:23am

Oh, reading your earlier comment, Ben - maybe your 11:30 am is the "gift circle" whatever that is or the " additional hour prior to".  Does that mean that the call/online space opens ahead of time ?

Comment by Deborah Hart Yemm on September 17, 2015 at 10:21am

Hmmm, I thought it was 12:30pm Eastern for the second round today.  Hoping to join in around 11:30am CDT today.

BTW, Ben - great way to celebrate your birthday.  May it prove to be everything you could ever wish for.

I've posted this event at A New Gaia on Ning - both in our #OccupyNow and in our Event notices.

Got off to a nice start this morning with a bunch of the people at La Decentrale, and four others that "beamed in" along with me. Back at 11:30am Eastern for another couple of hours. Then again tomorrow.

I'm here on Zoom with the Decentrale gang in Switzerland, now through 10am Eastern/2pm UTC, and again from 11:30-1:30. Please join me. We'll be doing two gift circles, as well as sharing stories, hanging out, etc.

Hey Steve and Deborah! Nice to hear from you both. Today, I'll be on for the two gift circles and for an additional hour prior to reach one. Tomorrow, I plan to be on for most of the day (US Eastern time) except for a 1-3pm call I will have to take.

Can't say who else will show up, or when, at this point.

And yes, Chris, the room is yours all weekend as well.

Hi Ben. Nice to see this happening. I really appreciated the Café calls. I have been busy working with others on part of the development of independent media, citizen media and the new journalism. Mostly with Democracy Watch Media shows and podcasts. I have some time to participate this Thursday and Friday and wonder if there is any likely time that others who are engaged in my interests might be on?

Comment by Chris Zumbrunn on September 16, 2015 at 2:24pm

Actually, if it turns out to be possible and if that is fine with you Ben as well, we'll try to make use of the same Zoom room throughout the weekend, providing anybody interested with a stream *and* an opportunity to interact with what is going on at the Decentrale. 

Comment by Deborah Hart Yemm on September 16, 2015 at 9:35am

Nice to hear from you again, Ben.

I'll try to check in at some point.

Of course, Ellen! Sorry if what I wrote wasn't clear. Anarchism emerged as a separate political movement from Marxism in the 19th century, in St. Imiere, Switzerland. And that is where La Decentrale--the in-person gathering we are partnering with-- is located.

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More

Leadership Ecology

When a Leadership Ecology occurs, a web of relationships emerges revealing each person’s authentic leadership qualities through the transfer of their power to others. When done in a conscious way – a shared collaborative awakening happens.See More
