Our intention is to honor our friend, the late Finn Voldtofte, his work and spirit, by creating more than a beautiful memorial site. We want to grow a space where people can interact with and learn from his work, continue and weave it into their own.

This week, the geeks of Nexus had a real-time meeting over the net, using audio and text chatting, electronic whiteboarding, voting and polling, to advance a meeting agenda packed with many exciting topics. They were exciting because they can lead to new capabilities for all of us to connect with one another, grow friendships and projects together. We spent three rich hours online, and Fernanda is working on the meeting harvest...
Some of the burning questions expressed in that session were not technology focused, e.g.: How can we nurture more content and social interaction on the Nexus site? What are the priorities to others? People not in this conversation? What will bring people to the site?
Those questions triggered the idea for a similar, real-time meeting of those who may want to hold the space for our online community and facilitate the emergence of its collective intelligence, i.e.: its capacity to create the future that it strives for.
If you recieved my email invitation to the synch session, it was for one or more of the following reasons. You: - are experienced facilitated face-to-face and/or online communities - have a treasure of experience with independent media communities - are organizing content and articulating community roles on the site - mentioned somewhere your interest to facilitate conversations - have a passion and talent for making the site visually beautiful - have designed evolutionary learning communities - are member of the site’s co-initiation team
We will meet on Friday, Feb 10, 3:30 to 4:30 pm Pacific Time. Fernanda will send you info on what you need to have and do to access the virtual room.
Regarding the design of our synch session, let’s dream it up together. We can start it by setting aside 10-15 minutes for accessing our inner stillness in any of our favorite ways, and from that silence, sensing the whole community as an organism, including those who are not yet online. and asking ourselves:
1. What does this organism need in order to grow healthy and vibrant, which I can contribute to?
After the answer(s) emerge, go back to your contemplation of the second question:
2. What are the immediate issues of high importance and/or urgency that we need to talk about, first?
Write down both sets of answer and post them below, by clicking on "add new comment." They will help shaping the design and flow of our meeting next week.
Ria Baeck's Model - The Masculine (Spirit) and the Feminine (Source) collaborate through us in the dance of holding the space for our open inquiry into collective presencing. From here the emergence of our highest future potential and the next steps for manifestation are born. read more »
