We can grow tribes that template a new society.
Step 1: Bring together people for a deep inquiry into the patterns that we live in.
(i) Creating a space where we are listening empathically, and also from a higher consciousness field. The group can begin with connection exercises
(ii) Allow stories and insight to come and be shared. People share from a deeper place from within. Questions that can be used as inquiry questions
(ii) Resource sharing. People can share what needs they have eg. dogwalking, editing help etc. And others in the group can offer to help. This is the gift circle process.
(iii) Community Living projects. This is a process that unfolds over time . From the answers to the questions from step 1, and from looking at needs that arise in the resource sharing exercise, the group can look at what kind of projects it wants to create together. Its good to start with small projects and work up to larger projects. And to work with quick prototypes then move to larger functioning systems. The group can use a variety of facilitation processes to envision what to do , and also to activate – Theory U, Appreciative Inquiry, Dragon Dreaming, Lean Startup.
These can be different resource sharing projects like pooling your money together for emergency funds account, co-living projects, buying real estate together, foodshares, gardening parties, skillshares. Shareable.net provides a good list of possible projects.
Step 3: Form working groups
Different teams form around different projects. They can meet outside the regularly circle, as well as have presentation time within the regular circles of step 2.
Step 4: Linking with other tribes and organizations
Various partnerships, commons, resources sharing can be built with other tribes and groups to form a network and ecosystem.
