Decision-Making for Transition Groups: Part One

Online (Free)
Wednesday, November 11, 2009 - 5:00am - 6:30am

How can Transition groups function effectively, democratically in ways that empower members and also get stuff done? Starhawk presents her Five-Fold Path of Productive Meetings: Right People, Right Container, Right Process, Right Facilitation, Right Agenda.  

Part One will focus on who should be at  the meeting, how to choose the right container, and how to decide which  process is right for your group.   She'll introduce ways to make Consensus and Modified Consensus work for you.  

In Part Two (on November 18th), she'll focus on the Facilitator's Toolbox, how to create agendas that work, and what to do when groups get stuck.

Starhawk has been training groups in consensus and facilitation for over twenty-five years. She is an activist, permaculture designer and teacher, and author of eleven books, including The Fifth Sacred Thing, The Earth Path, and her latest, The Last Wild Witch.  She teaches Earth Activist Trainings, permaculture design courses with a grounding in spirit and a focus on organizing and activism.  Her website is and her blog, Dirt Worship, is
