An open space for global conversation
Collaboration. Many see it as essential to bringing forth the world we desire, yet it remains elusive at the scale we need. Join us for a week-long exploration of the challenges and opportunities we are experiencing in pursuit of this "holy grail" of systemic transformation.
We are beginning our inquiry here on the forum, and then continuing with our regular Monday Cafe Call on October 22:
Register for our Monday Vital Conversation Series
8-10a PDT | 11a-1p EDT | 3-5p GMT
Note: this theme will also inform our Tuesday "Connect2012" and Thursday "Occupy Heart" calls.
Occupy Cafe stewards Jitendra Darling and Ben Roberts will be the "conversation starters" for the Monday call, drawing on their experience of collaboratively bringing forth Occupy Cafe, as well as ideas that have been "in the air" at the recent conference of the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation and the Bioneers intensive on "Catalyzing a Resilient Communities Network."
Here is the framing we used in our three breakouts during the Cafe Call:
The few time of my experienced collabotation in improversational dance with a group of jazz musians, as well everytime I dance in group with Flamenco or Belly dancers.
Also a time not to long ago where I participated in making soup with the occupy movement in Oakland, CA I found this movement in the short time I was there insperational as well as spiritual because everyone there had soul. something which seems to be vacant in alot of people these days. the power to speak for what is you is wrong in the way system is run and rundown as a result of GREED, which lacks spirituality. For a Better World we need more Soul.
