Leadership Becomes A Choice!

How & what we think of self & others is a consequential choice. Renewed in '04, the ancient whole person paradigm shows right understanding & arrangement of people throughout Transition (the phenomenon & the era). To lead, be whole in YOUR space.See More

Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
**Trained facilitator for Awakening the Dreamer - Changing the Dream, see
**Trained as Community Presenter for the Real Wealth of Nations - Creating a Caring Economics - see
**member of Transition Colorado movement; convening discussions in community re: Korten's Agenda for a New Economy
**Convening community discussions of new-paradigm economics
**Also teaching creative personal transitions course - check out my workbook -
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
** I am looking for allies in Colorado who are interested in raising awareness of our urgent global situation, and devising ways to can re humanize our lives and survive even thrive in the post peak oil world in Colorado.
** Due to problems we've developed in EEE - Energy, Economy and Environment - we are in a quandary and must learn new skills to survive
** Marathon Effect - Levels of awareness vary greatly due to the "marathon effect.” Some are early adopters while others are last starters. Those with eyes wide open are studying our current global synergistic crises in EE&E and are the quickest to move through the change process, since they can visualize the personal and societal transformations needed before others even know the race for survival solutions has begun. For others it will take longer to make the transition: letting go of old ways, moving through the neutral zone, and, finally, making a new beginning
** Those who see humans' calamitous trajectory must serve as "canaries in the mines" to alert others, convene discussions, raise awareness, promote study, education, skill building, and action
** I see myself as somewhere is the middle of the marathon, learning from those ahead of me, and turning to assist others behind me.
** I am studying the issues and training myself to be a coach and assistant for others to learn how to transitions personally and in community.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
** I am leading community discussions on EEE (Energy, Economics, Environment) to raise awareness.
** Studying together to figure out next steps... for individuals, communities, societies and the planet.
**Want to learn how we can catalyze transitions from domination cultures to partnership cultures -
**We must be the ones we are waiting for... and what are we waiting for?
** Re-awaken ourselves! Creative, vibrant, resilient personal transitions lead to resilient community transitions
**Instead of obsessing on Economic Development like GDP, GNP, etc, let us focus on Human Development - see
Your Favorite Books/Websites/Blogs/RSS Feeds for Information about the Transition Movement
** The happy planet index in England
** educating for peace and converting the US and world culture from domination to partnership ... as described in The Real Wealth of Nations by Riane Eisler - see chapter summaries here -
** David Korten's "The Great Turning" and "Agenda for a New Economy"
** Changing US national budget priorities from funding war and economic domination (55% of US 2010 discretionary budget) to funding domestic needs for ending poverty, providing food and nutrition for all, health, education, agriculture, food, shelter, clothing
** the Economics of Peace conference ...
** Rob Hopkins at TED describes the Transition Town movement
** The Crash Course, by Chris Martensen or here ... or the shorter 45-minute version is here -
If you view the short 45-minute version, then I suggest you also view the 20 minute Chapter 20, and consider doing the self-assessment.
** The Uncrash Course. If you really feel things are falling apart and you need to "re-skill" for "the long emergency", then you may want to consider this course
** Van Jones, the Green Collar Economy, p 110: "We are trying to change the status quo. Bt we all have a stake in it. Every day we end up feeding the very monster we are fighting."
