The larger process and its purpose

I do agree.
> We are part of a process that wants to happen, as are Devon and the ESes.
Probably. Letís take a closer look at what that may mean.

The fruits of one conversation feeding another one
Another member of the CI Circle, Juanita Brown offered her aadvice:
"My sense is that however many gather it will be an important gathering. When we were doing community organizing in the 60's-- if there was more than two it was the beginning of something big!-- so I'd encourage those who can be there to go so that the fruits of that conversation can be brought into larger circles as they continue to gather momentum. The work of collective intellgence is work whose time has come and it is now! Hugs to all....and I did make it on line--- Yippee!!"
The title of this entry refers not only to the possibility that results from the CI meeting in the Leveys' house can flow and be enhanced byh subsequent meetings of practitioners in Devon, UK (Sept.17-21) and Whidbey Island (Jan. 14-18). It also means that the some lessons learned from the Movement of the 60's can be reviewed and re-purposed in our context today. That's what I tried to tease out in my reply to Juanita. See below.
