MAPS TO SHOW US WHERE WE ARE

MAY 24, 2010

BY MELISSA NEELY & LIZ RICKERT

“CHIARA – CLAIRE – LIGHT”

“COMMUNITY IS ALL WE REALLY HAVE.”

“COMMUNITY IS ALWAYS THE ANSWER.”

“WE ARE MAKING A CASSEROLE, DON’T KNOW WHAT KIND OF CASSEROLE, BUT WE ARE BRINGING A LOT OF STUFF. AND IT SMELLS GOOD.”

“ALL CHANGE COMES FROM CONVERSATION.”

“USING THE ANCHOR OF TURNING TO ONE ANOTHER”

“THE LEADERS WE NEED ARE ALREADY HERE, THE WISDOM WE NEED IS ALREADY HERE.”

“IT TAKES A LOT TO STAND IN THE BATTER’S BOX.”

“DARE TO SHOW UP.”

“WE ARE ALWAYS STARTING SOMETHING.”

“IT’S SO EXCITING TO SEE A SYSTEM SELF-ORGANIZING AND CREATING THEIR PLAN.”

“I’M JUST MAKING MORE ROOM FOR BEAUTY. I TAKE MY QUESTIONS OUT TO THE GARDEN.”

“RESILIENCE AND RELATIONSHIP ARE LESSONS IN NATURE.

“NATURE BRINGS. . . SENSE OF CALM, TENDING TO BEAUTY, PLACES OF BEAUTY AND HEALING, DIVERSE COMMUNITIES, GENTLE TRANSFORMATION, AND CONNECTING TO OUR SOURCE.”

“FOSTER THE INTERIOR”

“ONE THING THAT KEEPS US GOING IS THAT THIS MEETING JUST MIGHT WORK.”

“THERE IS NO CERTIFICATION OF COMPLETION OR DIPLOMA. WE SHOULD GIVE YOU A CERTIFICATE FOR BEGINNING.”

“A METHOD WITHOUT A HOST IS EMPTY.”

“GETTING OUT OF MY SKIN AND GETTING IN TO OUR SKIN EQUALS CO-CREATING.”

FINDING OUR PLACE ON THE LOOP:
“THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A NETWORK AND A COMMUNITY IS THE COMMUNITY HAS A CENTER”

“THIS IS A DELICATE DANCE.”

“WE’RE NOT IN KANSAS ANYMORE.”

“IT’S SUPER ACCOUNTABILITY. WE HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER.”

“WE NEED BUSINESS SENSIBILITY.”

OPEN SPACE THEME:
HOW DO WE ACTUALIZE OUR HOPES MORE FULLY, NOW & IN THE FUTURE?

PARENT INVOLVEMENT:
“WE HAVE ALL BEEN BUILDING THE PLANE WHILE FLYING.”

“LET THE PARENTS CREATE PROGRAM INSTEAD OF FORCING THE PARENT INTO THE PROGRAM.”

HOW DO WE NOURISH AND ACCELERATE THE UPSWING FROM COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE TO SYSTEMS OF INFLUENCE?

“WE ARE HAVING THE CONVERSATIONS, BUILDING THE TRUST, LETTING THEM TELL US BECAUSE WE DON’T KNOW. WE LET THEIR STORIES BUBBLE UP.”

"BUT, IT’S JUST THE VERY BEGINNING OF THE CONVERSATIONS WE NEED WITH PARENTS TO FIND OUT WHAT IS NEEDED TO SUPPORT OUR FAMILIES AND CHILDREN SO THEY THRIVE."

"PEOPLE OWN WHAT THEY CREATE, IF THEY ARE INVOLVED FROM THE BEGINNING."
