Diana Leafe Christian (author of books, *Finding Community: How to Join an Ecovillage or Intentional Community* and *Creating a Life Together* and a member of Earthaven Ecovillage) will train participants in this dynamic method of self-governance.
Sociocracy, also called Dynamic Governance, is a system of governance using consent decision making, involving all those who do the work deciding what to do and how they work.
This workshop is perfect for people living in, or preparing to live in, cooperative intentional communities.
Carpooling is encouraged. Bring layered clothing. Swimsuit optional if you would like to use hot tubs.
If you prefer to camp in a tent at Sahale rather than have indoor accommodations, please contact Colette, hoff(at)goodenough.org to make arrangements. People with limited funds or temporary hardship may request financial assistance by writing info(at)nwcommunities.org.
You may arrive on Thursday, April 27 anytime after 3:00 PM, or show up on Friday, April 28. Content delivery is Friday 9:00 A.M. through Sunday midday.
The event will be held at the Sahale Learning Center, near Belfair, WA. (Sahale is owned & operated by the Goodenough Community.)
Sahale’s 68 acres hold many gifts: a quiet forest, an old orchard of many fruits and a magical sacred grove of ancient cedars. The ever-changing Tahuya River; a bubbling spring; and a quiet pond. Surrounded by hills and forest, there’s an open vista over a valley.
The event is cosponsored by NICA & Goodenough discounted rates for NICA members.
Fees $125 – $330
