Harvest Basket: March Presencing Gathering

About 75 of us gathered on March 1, 2012 at the Minnesota Presencing Gathering to listen for what was emerging among us, guided by the following two questions:

  • How might we advance awareness-based collective action toward a more sustainable, inclusive, and aware communities?
  • What are the issues, ideas, and opportunities for the future that is wanting to emerge in our region?

This was the fourth in a series of Minnesota Presencing Gatherings. To see information about previous and future gatherings, click here. You can find photos from the March 1 gathering on the Minnesota Presencing Community Facebook page.
