Community Outreach

All Feeback on these principles and goals is welcome.

Certain possibilities for the site, e.g., online synchronous "live" interactive video / audio, whether for visiting teachers, open seats, or guest speaker programs, may require a "critical mass" size for the community of in order to actualize. To this end... I have set the following goal:

Goal: To organically grow the site by continuing to invite like-minded individuals who could add to the depth and spirit of our community.

Outreach priniciples:

  1. Honesty. Integrity. Authenticity.
  2. Growth should be organic, sustainable, and responsible.
  3. Best publicity may come through serving our own community. Focus should be on welfare and well-being of community members and on providing services that benefit them.
  4. Growth will occur best and most naturally when the community is being served by the site.
  5. "In-reach" over "Out-reach" [If that makes any sense... But basically, it means recruitment is less important than service.]
  6. Alignment with Esalen, Gestalt, and possibly other human potential communities.
  7. No spam policy.
  8. Quality of members is more important than quantity. Dilution of quality is to be avoided.
