Because of the name of Helen Mahoo that you mention and because of your question: "....what criteria do you think w should use in choosing this school?" ...I feel the need to bring up the class of Spiritual Hygiene101 that Helen and I got rooted together into, during several chatting sessions, "from out of the blue of the Internet". See for yourself if perhaps, it could be used as a basic criteria for Health-Education-Correction's settings for the school.
As you will see, Helen and I get to touch one another in the organic experience of spiritual unity, where our personal whole gets connected into one another's attention and care. In practice, we get "to make love" beyond distance, gender, race, religion.... Our relationship is a seed that has taken a life of its own, for the betterment of the human race's connectivity into a
Such "Love-Making apprenticeship" is my view of humanity's life sharing of sustainability and it is my prayer, my aspiration, my renewal's compass guiding me to where the universal citizenship is meant to bloom in the reality that feeds from the dreams and visions that we are each given to meet upon. The same personal experience of "Love-Making apprenticeship" has been true for me with Andrius Kulikauskas, Chris Macrae, Jeff Buderer, Janet Fieldman and many others, who allow themselves to be REAL in their dreaming outloud and in their ground activation to reach out to one another's work.
Thank you all for it all...
Blessings be with us all...

I read your mail on the connection of schools in the coffee plantation areas and I saying that we are working with Hellen Mahoo of Uyoga in Bagamoyo Tanzania.She going to give us a school in Moshi to connect with one in Dallas. I believe this is going to with our thoughhts for food story.
By the time we are through with choosing the school we shall inform our forum.
Hellen Mahoo and many from Uyoga
are members of Holistichelping of MS. What criteria do you think w should use in choosing this school?

Markus, Yes I'm thinking about overviewing this last year, and more
importantly, writing about our upcoming year. For this reason I am asking
for us to right about our own dreams for 2007, what we'd like to accomplish
and how our lab can help. This is a great time to influence the direction of
our lab. Thank you to Tom Ochuka, Pamela McLean, Edward Cherlin, Benoit
Couture for responding to my request:

And I will also cull older letters from our leaders. I want to emphasize our
"culture of investigation" and help us help each other make progress in

Also, for the World Social Forum - and other occassions - I would like to
have a small booklet that would present our leaders and their working groups
(or other venues) with descriptions of their work at our lab, their direction
in the coming year, how they are helping include more people. Here's a list
of people I think we should definitely feature, and let me know if you'll be
active next year and we should include you!:
- Andrius Kulikauskas
- Markus Petz
- Benoit Couture
- Jeff Buderer

us know! Write your
thoughts for the coming year!

a guess you'll be doing another "state of the lab" report?
As was done last year. SOmething Eric Schneider (one
of our indpendent thinkers) does is a state of PNYV
report (like this), and then a time line for what is
planned for and hoped in the next year. Maybe
something similar could be included.
I send it now coz if you want to send this out in Jan
it helps to think along these lines (and so make
notes) as you are wrapping up end of year stuff /
reviewing. Not after you have been thru all mails and
then have to go back thru them again!

but the interest rates are manageable). These are just
business projects. Our "thinking out loud" and our

We've started to write what we've learned about how we

Special thanks to Franz Nahrada for serving as our

we've discovered the importance of organizing around
our "key concepts"

(sixty people!) and our "investigatory questions"

We've subsequently found more leaders whose key
concepts are the hubs
for our working groups: John Rogers (Cyfranogi), Jeff
Buderer (Back to
Root), Janet Feldman (Holistic Helping), Lucas
Gonzalez Santa Cruz
(Mejores Vias) and my own Living By Truth. In this
way, our lab is
evolving into an overlapping network of such spaces.
We're well on our way toward a broader vision of a

participation. I tried, where possible, to find other
groups who might
share our culture. Instead, our old timers rose to

working-in-parallel , inclusivity,
responsivity, open leadership, active networking, the

Our lab is still finding its shape. I want to place
us in the most
helpful strategic position. I therefore invite us all
to work towards a
broader vision: a culture of independent thinkers. If
our culture might
grow in depth (so that we are true to ourselves) and
in width (so that
we double in number each year), then in 10 years we
will have 100,000
active and 1,000,000 supportive participants. We will
be able to apply
ourselves to all issues in our own culture and to any
issue in the rest
of the world. We will speak our own language of
ideas, and we will know
how to engage others as well. We will have a
distributed country. We
will be a diaspora with many homelands, some very
small, and some not so
small. If 10% of our activity might be in Lithuania,
then we would be
the major cultural, social, political influence there.
This means that
we would have
hundreds of global villages and
thousands of families
where a child might grow up as an independent thinker
and not know any
better. Or, more typically, we would be "bi-cultural"
"multi-cultural" , able to participate in an
culture alongside many others.
I am attracted to this goal. If we might succeed,
then in a subsequent
ten years we might arrive at an ethic of independent
100,000,000 active and 1,000,000,000 supportive
participants, so that
every person might choose to participate, if they so
wished. I hope
that such an ethic might invigorate existing ethics,
Atheist, Buddhist, Christian, Confuscianist,
Humanist, Islamic, Jewish, Scientific, as much as they
are grounded in
I will write more about what I find especially
relevant for our lab and
our culture this coming year. I look
forward to our
thoughts now and later.
Thank you all for our wonderful energy!
