HiveMind: Consciousness Party and Bay Networking Night
A night of music, learning, connecting, and being. Our friends in The Evolver Network invite us to gather in celebration a
nd connection, with the intention to create stronger relationships among Bay Area organizations, and establish Evolver community here. With your help, we can connect this crack team of community-builders to our visions for sustainable community living, cohousing and EcoVillages. Raines will be bringing along visiting Seattle-area cohousing founder David Weinstock
, of Liminal Somatics, who will provide a taste of his Sunday EBCOHO Body of Wisdom workshop
at The Long Haul. Magenta
, a Bay Area "sporeganizer" for Evolver, is an EBCOHO member and we have other connections across communities.
Several organizations' leaders will be present to share what their groups are doing. Please come share your presence and gifts, and meet your fellow amazing lights. Evolver is for Evolving consciousness, individually and in collaboration. We look forward to waking up with you.
What we require is a trans-local movement of civil society, on a global scale, where people come together in local communities to address the complete scope of our situation in "living learning laboratories," sharing the best practices and techniques for re-localizing basic production of goods, foodstuffs, and energy. We need a movement away from the industrial-age ideals of growth, toward "slow living," toward enhancing the quality of life, and an equitable sharing of resources on a planetary scale.
The Evolver Network provides a prototype for a self-organizing social movement that meshes together local communities who are creating an alternative model for future society, which we call "The New Planetary Culture."

Or members of the Bay Area Community Exchange time bank can gift us one hour of their time bank balance. To register for the local time bank and begin participating, go here: http://timebank.sfbace.org/
"The BACE Timebank is like a local community bank, but we keep track of time. For every hour you spend doing something for someone in your community, you earn one hour to use to have someone do something for you. It is an alternative way to give and receive resources. It’s that simple."
