Pathways to strengthen Individuals within Communities
Our HUMAN REALITY is:
Research shows that Most of us can Grow Stronger through Adversity!
The following two Practices have the Power to help our Growth:
SOCIAL CONNECTION and PURPOSEFUL ACTION
Our HUMAN REALITY is also:
For most of us it is Incredibly Difficult to Change Behaviour.*
The following Elements can strengthen us to Cultivate Positive Change:
a caring COMMUNITY and regular PRACTICE
(*even if we know that it is good for us)
Join a small Community of caring People
who Support each other by Practicing:
RESILIENCE, CREATIVITY and EMPATHIC DIALOGUE.
We connect Individuals and grow Communities
through the following four stages:
STAGE 1: Community Members welcome New Participants
by covering their small fee.
STAGE 2: New Participants commit to a Small Group of four
to support the group in building trust.
STAGE 3: New Participants witness the personal impact* of three events
before covering the small fee of another person.
(*e.g. increased resilience skills, uplifted mood, strong social connections)
STAGE 4: Participants join regular events*
to practice and experience Resilience, Creativity, and Belonging.
(*e.g. dialogue processes, workshops, watch parties)
Potential Impact of this Cycle:
1. An individual is helped to overcome
their personal resistance to commit.
2. A small group is supported to build
trust through committed participants.
3. A participant shares the gift of the
experience with a new person.
4. A participant is empowered to take
initiative to belong to a community.
The potential of SOCIAL CONNECTION is to move from an isolated “Me”
to a "Me" that belongs to an interconnected "We".
"Alone, we can do so little.
Together, we can do so much."
