Hello EVCCC Members,

I just heard that there are a few spaces left for this workshop. Please excuse the late notice. This is a great opportunity as Diana Leaf Christian is at the top of this field as a trainer in Sociocracy/Dynamic Governance.

Dear Friends and colleagues in the lower mainland and islands, 
Here's more information about my upcoming three-day workshop on Sociocracy Saturday-Monday, January 31- Feb. 2. The location is Windsong Cohousing, 20543 96th Avenue, Langley. 9:00 – 5:30 each day.
Sociocracy is an increasingly popular governance and decision-making method, based on the principles of transparency, equivalence, and effectiveness. When a community uses Sociocracy correctly, their governance process tends to become far more effective than when using consensus. 
 “We’ve made more decisions in the past two months than we have in the past two years!”  —Davis Hawkowl, Pioneer Valley Cohousing, Massachusetts, US.  
 “A visitor said she’d never seen a community meeting be so effective, efficient,
and fun!”   —Hope Horton, Hart's Mill Ecovillage, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, US. 
         $295 Early-Bird Registration through December 31. $335 beginning January 1. Bring your lunch or sign up for a catered lunch for $15.00. Shuttle service to Windsong Cohousing from King George SkyTrain station.
         My intention for the workshop is that participants know how to start applying Sociocracy in their community or organization. The workshop includes an extensive handout booklet, revised and better Hobbit Skits, and wall posters illustrating each of the four meeting processes. It includes follow-up Skype calls or emails to answer questions at no charge.  I’ll be the main workshop leader and my Sociocracy consultant friend Sheella Mierson will present how Sociocracy differs for businesses and nonprofits.

Comments from Aldeafeliz Ecovillage in Colombia after the first six months after my workshop there, as reported by ecovillage co-founder Anamaria Ariztizabal. 
* More effective management. 
* Better follow-up to our decisions, which no longer fall into a ‘black hole’ of exhaustion. 
* A clearer sense of responsibility about who does what in our community. 
* Information 
flows better, creating greater transparency. 
* A stronger cohesion. Our meetings are faster and lighter, with a rhythm that feels satisfying. 
* At the end of our last meeting we started dancing for joy!
