Whenever Jeffrey Sachs’ name crosses my sonar, I perk up. He does great work and is always looking at interesting issues. This article really speaks to what I envision for Sacred Village. I believe that Peace is built one Sacred Village at a time.
I hope we read articles such as this and think, not just how wonderful this is, but also how are these tools useful to me and my band of change-makers? Don’t live in a developing nation? There’s still plenty of need where you do live.
I feel more and more convinced that The Councils of Elders Experience is the right way to go… What’s interesting about this project is that it looks at agriculture, health, education, infrastructure, and business development at the same time. People have joined together and are moving themselves forward. Who is your bright and shining Council? What different areas of the same problem are you looking at?
What’s also interesting to me is that they have banded together there with experts from other places and are making progress. Let’s hear a loud huzzah! for new technology that makes this easy. The Skype call from small village to college prof’s office: an idea whose time has come and changed worlds.
Find the article here, and tell me what you think.
Come and listen to me on Boomer and the Babe radio on Monday morning. 12 pm Eastern, 9am Pacific. We’re going public with The Councils of Elders Experience. It’s exciting, just a little anxiety-producing… but very fun. You’re going to enjoy Pete Peters and Deborah Brown. There’s some great stuff coming, my dears! Worlds are going to change — and we’re going to be the ones doing the work! (and reaping the benefits!)
It’s time! The clarion is sounding! You, you wonderful Woman of Wisdom, it’s time to use your powers for good. Finish up that last self improvement class, pronounce yourself good enough to make a difference. What do you want to do with the rest of your life? With whom do you want to do those things? How can you make your community better, safer, saner, healthier? What legacy are you going to leave?What are you waiting for?
Women connect: problems with solutions, dreams with reality, one group of people with another. Any problem shared is a problem lightened. Any dream shared is a dream expanded. Gather your besties into a Council of Wise Women. Figure out what problem you want to tackle. And then do it.
I’m almost done designing a program that’s going to help you change the world. I’ve gathered my Council of Elders around me and we’re getting ready. You start dreaming and keep watching this spot.
In the meantime, at the moment, these are the pieces of the program that are going to take you from Vision to Plan… and right on to community change and personal satisfaction. If you can’t have it all, you might as well decide you want the good parts! Let’s go! There’s a world of Peace waiting on us.
