Pre gathering. Thursday afternoon Nov 9th.  All Gathering attendees are welcome to a conference program at University. Note it is a separate program designed around university parameters with workshop opportunities.

Gathering: Nov 10th Friday 08.30AM - Nov 12th Sunday at noon. Consider each day as a series of participative blocks of time in which “transitions” are as important as our “content” sessions. The content blocks are designed and led, primarily, by AR+ members who are currently engaged in coLABs. Therefore expect workshopping on Regenerative OrganizingLeadership as Developmental Friendship that's transforming inherited supremacy dynamics, Relational Meditation, and Amicable creativity. All with a constructivist developmental flourish.We aspire to our time being nourishing, intellectually engaging, sustainability focused and restorative. Expect a pre-Gathering zoom meeting in October to warm the relational space!
