From Doug Pagitt
There are many ways to participate in the Emergent Village relationships local gatherings, online gatherings, through ideas, and in face to face interactions with others from around the country and around the world. In the next few months two national gatherings are being planned. I would encourage you consider being part of these events.
Gathering: October 9-12, 2006 Glorietta, New
Over the last few years the Annual Gathering has become a staple for many of the Emergent Village. The size of the group - around 150; the structure - conversations lead by the participants, meals eaten together, freedom for friendships to develop; the location - just North of Santa Fe where the sun just shines differently; the cost - free with the only cost being housing and food (averaging around $30 per night for housing and $25 total for communal meals, dinners are often extra), have all made this an accessible and meaningful gathering. Registration for The Gathering will be opening soon so make arrangements now if oyu are planning to attend.
Soliton Sessions: August 10-12, Ventura
The Bridge Communities are hosting a unique and meaningful event this August. The Soliton Sessions are a perfect blend of hospitality, learning, and sharing. There is no question that is one of the best and most important events to consider participating in each year. Go Here - http://www.solitonnetwork.org/ for registration and information.
