We continue our C2012 focus on Occupy Cafe itself with this 

Our inquiry is around ways that Occupy Cafe can evolve to better serve and expand the movement and perhaps even to more fully embody our own brand of "Occupying." 

We are continuing to collect answers to the following questions:

  • What have your best experiences with Occupy Cafe been so far?  Is there a particular story you might share with us?
  • If you had three wishes for OC, what would they be?  

We invite you to share your answers here on our forum as one way of participating in this inquiry, and also to help us to find patterns and core insights in the responses.

You might also take a look at this list of possible topics that might serve as more specific areas of focus for the inquiry.  If there are some that call more particularly to you, please share that as well.

This is a very powerful post that captures the impetus of Community Weaving. OC is a catalyst that awakens the human spirit to knowing we are the ones we've been waiting for. OC is an OS platform that serves as a "nexus for change" whereby connections are made and the "happenings" from those interconnections can be birthed into society to form a new reality. We banding together, opening our hearts and minds to "hearing" and "being' with" each other and our lives are being transformed.  

I sense OC will eventually merge with other "happenings" such as cells clustering to form a living organism that is adaptive to change. 

Much more to be revealed. How exciting and can hardly wait to see what magic happens and how lives will be transformed through the great turning. 

We can discuss this particular possibility via this thread in the Alternative Economy group.

Inspiration for the 6/19 call,drawn at random from the GroupWorks deck:


I got excited about the concept of Occupy Cafe and organized a few in person events in Portland.  I'd like to see on on- the ground event in Fall that is an Open Space Technology Conference.

I enjoy the substance and vibe (mostly) on Occupy Cafe online and have circled back around to plug in,  in part because I need an alternative to FaceBook!

I would wish for more participation, community building and connection.

I would wish for removal of barriers to engagement

I wish for collective consciousness raising

Woot woot!

"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
