Joseph Myers – session 6

These notes are from Joseph Myers’ seminar “Organic Community” given at Northern Seminary, May 2008.  They are rough.  I’ll post a session each day (6 total).

Power.  Participation. 

Power:

Flowchart model – hierarchy.
They exist in nature, but how? Revolving.  Something else in the room holds the power – the project holds the power.

A specific project gives power to the project leader.  Hierarchy comes under them.  People give up power, knowing that they will get it back.

3 keys to encouraging organic order:
Project holds the power
Focus in the whole
Cross-helping

Participation:

People participate:
as individuals, not as teams and groups
in a decentralized, local way
With whole of lives
Congruent with WAY they are asked
