Desda Zuckerman, Jen Roopenian and I (Francis Rico) were talking about the distress and reactivity that people in our communities are expressing, along with a greatly increasing embrace of conspiracy theories to explain current events.
We realized that at it’s core, people need a sense of coherence – of hope – of “purpose.” And instead of railing at the insanity of these challenging times, we realized that the leadership responsibility to become creative, resourceful and responsive in this crisis was up to us!
So we’re bringing this proposal to you – to participate in shaping. At this point there is no organized plan – just a recognition that leadership is our shared responsibility.
We invite you to join US in stepping up in a positive way – so together we can bring hope to our communities and action that will transcend politics, dogma, and limiting beliefs.
We’re extending the hand of friendship to you because we recognize that we share values and a vision of a healthier world.
As leaders of spiritual, intentional and transformational communities, our fellowship is essential to mobilizing an alternative to the current climate of negativity and despair.
We’re proposing that we co-create a conscious community to raise awareness of our shared responsibility to care for all of life with kindness and compassion.
Let’s begin by encouraging and supporting each other.
We invite you to join us for a collective conversation on Sunday November 1st at 11:00am PST, to talk about ways we can do this together.
Please get back to me if you are interested in contributing your wisdom and insights. firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s about All of US coming together to figure out how we can bring healing and positive outcomes to our communities, our country, and our world.
This is it!
