Jumping into the Future in a Dynamic Collaboration

In March 2008 Robin initiated an innovative completion process for the ‘Future Visions’ session on the final day of the APC9 (Australasian Permaculture Convergence. Sydney), having been invited to facilitate the three hour session. Her now infamous ‘Jumping’ Process has been the completion for all four APC’s since and has been introduced to the IPC (International Permaculture Convergence) in Cuba and last year in UK.

At APC13 in WA in October Robin led the ‘Jumping’ on the final day and along with many others also had a turn jumping off the stage. Erin Young and Robin held hands and jumped together into a future of supporting each other to achieve success in Robin’s business in such a way that it creates an income for both Erin and Robin and also for Erin to support Robin to get her next book out there in the world.

The process has started and they recently spent a day brainstorming and planning Robin’s business using Sociocracy as a model to map all the aspects of the business. Yes, Sociocracy can be used for planning in this way as well as to Govern a large corporation or organisation. You are invited to watch this space for collaborations, outcomes, strategies, invitations and offerings.

Our next e-newsletter and series of blogs will feature an article on ‘Jumping’ and also more on Sociocracy.
