We chose to pause and consider our work and its role in our selves and our world. We circled up for 90 minutes to reflect individually and collectively on the following:
stories of when we feel appreciated working with each other
ideas of how to strengthen our culture of appreciation
the callings in our lives in relation to our work on the Integral City Expo and eLab
the common patterns of intention within our highest individual aspirations
This was a wise choice to spend our time this way as we head into the chaos of putting on a month long on-line conference. We are grounded in the understanding of our shared calling to work together, even when most of us have never met face-to-face.
Our trust in each other has been amplified. Our shared, emerging purpose has been amplified. As we move into crunch time, our ability to priorize with purpose will be amplified.
We are ready to forge ahead.
Here is the poem that emerged from our time together, our feedback loop to ourselves, grounding our selves and our work serving cities and citizens as we design for our unfolding future.
