Right Livelihood Circles

November 10, 2013

The Right Livelihood Circle has been dormant for the last year and a half. This is partly due to my success in moving to a new job that has kept me very busy. However, I enjoy connecting with people in meaningful ways, my own livelihood issues are certainly not fully resolved, and I find the circle format to be a wonderful container for focusing consciousness to grow and develop.

Therefore, after the New Year I will once again invite interested people to join me in a circle that will last 7 weeks. We will focus on connecting to the motivations that drive us, sort through some of our capacities for contribution, and begin looking for ways to connect and engage with the larger world. This last piece will, I believe, be increasingly facilitated by the emergence of greater visibility and connectivity among innovators and proponents of the New Economy.

Exactly what we will cover in 7 weeks will be determined by the needs, aspirations and issues that individual members bring forward at the beginning. I will be hosting these sessions with the intent of opening up new fields of possibility in all the participants (including me). I won't be charging, although there may be a small collection made to cover tea - we always have tea.

If you know anyone who might enjoy and benefit from this, please invite them to join this group. If you have any questions or comments for me, I can be reached at
