Sangha members, working together to develop a consensus process for the sangha, met for the first time on May 25, 2002, and formulated the following structure:
The Consensus Collective
1) To develop, through practice and feedback from sangha meetings, a consensus process that is alive, inclusive and simple.
2) To develop a pool of facilitators who will lead sangha meetings.
Seven methods that we will explore:
Quakers method, Baha'i method, Nonviolent Communication (Rosenberg), Intervention Skills (Reddy), Temperature Reading (Satir), Motivational Interviewing (Miller), and books and articles on consensus
Current members of the collective:
Christine Hall, Fred Herman, Hilary Heyl, Bonnie Kelly, Judith Kidd, Suzanne Kryder, Mary Roy, Suzanne Sluizer. Membership in the group will be closed for 6 months to allow us to strengthen our focus.
Form for proposal to the general membership for a decision by consensus:
Here is a form developed by the Consensus Collective.
Workshop and potluck - April 12:
Open to all sangha members. See Consensus Collective Workshop.
