We began exploring the New Economy meme together from the moment Occupy Cafe "opened" last October.  In that short time, this decades-old idea has begun to develop rapidly in the public consciousness, to the point where it is now being spoken of as "a movement."

Futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard suggests that new ways of organizing every sector of human society are emerging simultaneously all around us.  Yet this "Shift" is still not apparent to the majority of humanity, or even to many who are bringing it forth, because it is a systemic transformation that requires a global perspective to be appreciated fully.

Part of our task together is to tell one another our personal pieces of this story, so that we can collectively "re-envision prosperity" as something that is not just theoretically available to us all, but actually at our fingertips in this very moment.  

  • Are you helping to tell this story of opportunity and possibility? 
  • What would it take for you to become the most powerful possible agent in this shift in consciousness?

Offer your thoughts below, and please join us for our Cafe Call as well.

Wonderful piece, Michael.. Thank you so much for that.  It arrived in the midst of a rather frustrating (but fascinating) conversation entitled "True Occupy is not Anti-Capitalist" on the Occupy Everywhere LinkedIn group.  I just posted it there as the perfect coda to a thread that is well worth reading, but probably not continuing in that venue.

I do wonder though, if anyone does read through it, what their takeaway is.  What are we hearing underneath the variety of opinions being expressed?

"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
