An invitation for (online) coffee and conversation
I am interested in the subject and I have sent my daughter some of your suggestions for developing a curriculum for children. However, I am also wary of the bias towards Christian, agrarian, and politically conservative viewpoints I find on your map and in the educational resources. My own experiences have been more eclectic and diverse. I'd like to listen, if maybe not contribute.
I'll be there!
I love this idea! Count me in :)
I’m keen. I’m in Brisbane Australia. I the timing will be 6am Sunday morning if my figuring is correct. I suspect my sister might be keen too!
Unfortunately I will not be free at that time. I will pray for a fruitful discussion!
I really want to do it! I didn't know about the Front Porch conference. I saw the word "conviviality" and immediately thought, "here is evidence of the communities of friends like Illich talked about!" I cannot say how many years I have fantasized. I was thinking of getting a farm sitter and going, but they are sold out! I am so near in MN and have been to Madison many times.
I recently went to health freedom conference locally and tried my best to contrive a spontaneous call to locals to gather and plan to keep knowing each other. The organizers were nervous about self-organization being misused by someone, so I just tried to boldly (being a shy person) step into conversations with strangers.
It has been suggested to me again and again to form an online community, but I don't want to! I poured my heart into trying to coordinate pandemic defense for children and families, and online did not do it for me. No more. I want real people. I keep thinking they are just around the corner. The problem is I have not been leaving notes and signals for them, have not thrown open my doors nor left the candle in the window...
Well anyways, I will certainly meet online with you all who are looking for embodied community. Lol
I would be interested.
I would like to join you!
Very much looking forward to being a part of this event!
