My work/play is shifting cultures toward more power-with ways of seeing, doing and being. How can we help everyone to realize our freedom, fully develop our trust, and manifest what we have to offer, individually and collectively? What do we do from there? One way i do this is by inviting self-awareness of the entire movement of Process Arts, connecting its various networks, communities, perspectives and fields: facilitators, geeks, and many others engaged in particular processes and this general culture shift anywhere in the world. I don't have a favorite process at the moment, but am currently living in community, use consensus at home and Occupy, and am working on a project using Open Space and World Cafe amng others. Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a more-or-less constant presence in my life (at this point as the language through which I most easily talk about supporting the power-with shift within and between individuals. Sometimes I even join in meditation.


I'm most hopeful when i see experimentation with and imagine further application of Citizen Deliberative Council (especially Wisdom Council), and local initiatives such as the Citizen Initiative Review). I also see experimenting with economic systems as critical (Arthur Brock is the most inspiring person i know working in this area, focusing on the wide variety of qualities that different currencies can have, to better model real value flows).


Would like to learn more about: Appreciative Inquiry, Provocative Coaching, Positive Deviance, Enneagram. What else should I explore?

The Bohm Dialogue, especially Collective Reflection has significance for me in terms of artistic critique and dialogue.

If one wanted to connect this to Jungian thought I'd relate to that.
