The major problems in the world are the result of the difference between

how nature works and the way people think.    Gregory Bateson


Woodlanders Gathering

Developing a Mission Statement, an Attitude

It looks like we are agreeing to position this event as Profound Play and not just a series of technique-building workshops. There are very few such events for mid- and late-career artists.  The default position of most Arts and Craft Centers is "Workshops" for the entry-level maker. Experienced makers have different needs. This Gathering is a chance to discover and address some of them. 

"The more clearly we can focus our attention on the

wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction."
-- Rachel Carson (1954)


Does my Alternative Event Planning model for the Gathering, called Sensitive Chaos, feed us well enough?  Sensitive Chaos is several power and organizational areas at once. Not a Pyramid of Power. But areas easily moved in and out of.

and maybe we protect the Warwick Gathering as a Place for Grazing. Grazing is a Spiral activity. did he say Spiritual?
