Hello Asian Learning Villagers!
We are now less than 3 months away from gathering for our week together in Vietnam and a lot is happening.
As the Calling Team for this gathering, we are in deep learning about how to invite the practice of self-organization and shared responsibility for community. It is our desire to create the minimal necessary structures for co-creating and to hold the space for this community to do its work together.
You are invited to step up and participate in this co-creation process by joining an initial community call on January 10 at 2pm Vietnam time (8am CET). The purpose of this call is to update everyone and to answer questions regarding registration, economy, booking of accommodations, scheduling and (most importantly!) how you can be involved.
You will soon be receiving details regarding this call and you are strongly encouraged to participate.
Meanwhile, there is much work to be done. Several groups are currently working and can use additional help. Others need to be organized. Please consider the following opportunities to find your place of contribution:
· Hosting (designing and holding the whole)
· Harvesting (hosting the harvesting of the gathering)
· Learning tracks (identifying the tracks and hosting of tracks)
· Space and beauty
· Field hosting (working with the subtle dimensions of community life)
· Relationships with the island community
We are very much looking forward to being together and to this opportunity for practice and learning as we co-create the conditions for community.
With excitement and gratitude,
Your Calling Team (Narayan, Trang, Mel & Steve)
