Conscious Learning Festival – Learning to be in relationship
In this call, we got right down to the heart of community-building: the work and play of nurturing interpersonal relationships, as the foundation of the process of deep adaptation. How do we build and preserve this ground for self- and mutual transformation? How to keep showing up, and model the ways of being and relating that are most important to us? But also: How can we keep finding common ground with people who see the world differently?

Unlearning and Radical Collective Change
In this call, Wendy and Dorian presented some findings from a newly released research report, “Views on Unlearning and Radical Collective Change in DAF.” What kind of changes are being precipitated in various groups within DAF? Do we, in the network, pursue radical forms of change? And what does all of this have to do with the idea of unlearning?
A Story of Seeds, Soil, and Sowers
During this call, Wendy and Dorian introduced certain findings from their research in DAF, and touched on: the seeds of change (what has been going on, for whom?); the soil (what is it that allows these seeds to grow?); and the sowers (who has been caring for these seeds, and disseminating them?).
