One of my small contributions to waging peace will be to facilitate a public Open Space conference in Seattle on Sunday, May 4, around the theme, Creating the World We Want. Below, an invitation with more details, which you can pass on to friends.
Hope to have old and new friends join us in imagining what the world COULD be, and how to realize our dreams.

CREATING THE WORLD WE WANT
The first of May has long been celebrated as the flowering of spring and a time to bring new creation into the world. We invite you to honor this season of new beginnings, and share in the worldwide celebration of Creativity and Innovation Day, by joining us for a daylong conversation on May 4.
Together we will explore how we can use our own deep creativity to create the kind of world we want to live in.
The Open Space meeting format will make it easy to connect with other people who share your passions and concerns. Any issue that you care deeply about will be on the table, if you care to put it there.
The facilitator will be Joelle Lyons Everett, who has led and participated in Open Space conferences around the world for more than ten years.
