Check In

  • Ben … I’m kind of sleepy too. But we had a fun weekend.
  • Brandon … The Big Float was awesome, and Ren slept for 45-60 minutes of it … but it was kind of rainy, and no new Gaia's People members showed up

Opening Blessing

As we come together, may we find within ourselves and within our group the resources we need to be who we aspire to be. May this call advance the work, may it bring life, may it hasten the Great Birthing. -- Blessed Be

WW(W)s from last time

Organize the WWWs by person and then due date. We’ll start checking in on topical community protocol and meditation for each mini-period between workbees. Holacracy founder Brian Robertson says these are bad: http://holacracy.org/blog/the-insanity-of-the-what-by-when

Shiny Green Festival

  • Do we want a special planning call, given that Brandon is unavailable for the next business call and one of the work bees?
  • Saumurs arrive on the evening of Tuesday August 4 and can help set things up

Logistics

The Halsteads arrive on Sunday; we need to have an advance plan for where to have sessions with them

  • Look for trails near the visitor center that have shade but also grassy areas where we could sit next to the trail?
  • Other options: coffee shops, the Seed Village, a canoe trip?
  • Build the schedule around the 4T Trail
    • Start near the Zoo (maybe on the grass next to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial)
    • Hike up to Council Crest for our first session
    • Try to scatter other sessions along the route, e.g. at downtown coffee shops
      • Near the lower tram stop: Ross Island Grocery and Cafe at Corbett Ave & Curry St, or the Heritage Tree Park at Barbur Blvd and Naito Pkwy
      • Between the trolley and the MAX: Multnomah County Central Library or Case Study Coffee Roasters or the Sunshine Cafe, etc

Rough draft of Sunday schedule:

time activity location

Evaluation

  • Ben … It’s a little scary how soon this is and how many details we still have to get firmed up
  • Brandon … Excited and potentially overwhelmed, but I refuse to let that happen

Closing Blessing

We came here to find the resources we need, to be who we aspire to be, and to draw together others who share our aspirations. This we have done. May we continue to do this work until we have got this festival put together. --Blessed Be
