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:

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)

INVITATION:

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:

Economy

STAGE 1: Community Members welcome New Participants

by covering their small fee.

Invitation

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)

Invitation

Reciprocity

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".

"Me"

"We"

"Alone, we can do so little.

Helen Keller

Together, we can do so much."
