Followed by a presentation on

"Community-created Credit and Sociocracy"

- with John Root, Jr.

When we say that we have to get money out of politics - that the monied interests have corrupted our democracy - we are recognizing that money is more powerful than law. If money is so powerful, perhaps we should look at what money is and see if there is something that we can do about it.

This participatory seminar on community-created credit and Sociocracy is an introduction to the idea that we can create "money" to accomplish what we believe is important and that we can govern ourselves using an inclusive decision making process called Sociocracy.

After introducing some key concepts about what money is and what governance is all about, we will share what we would like to dedicate our lives to and how we can empower each other to do that with community-created credits. Bring your imagination as we enter into a practical sharing of what could be when we understand money and society as what we create together.

By the end of the evening you will understand how we can move from working for money to money serving us. You will understand that we can have all the money needed to create a just and sustainable abundance.
