Many years ago my curiosity and passion were ignited around how we might be, meet and work together in a different way. From that journey I’ve found my place in this world as a participatory process designer and facilitator, hosting and harvesting conversations that matter. I work with organizations, communities and individuals to invite collaboration, facilitate participatory gatherings, and harvest the fruits of those conversations for sustainable progress. I create space for people to turn towards each other for meaningful conversation, where all voices are welcomed and heard. My work happens in meetings, gatherings, conferences and more, designing circle-based participatory dialogue processes to create a container for leadership and wise action to emerge. I live on the beautiful west coast of BC with my sweetie and our great Dane Maya, and I'm so glad to be here with the Group Works community!

Hi! I have been involved in various types of groupwork for many years. This deck is a really exciting resource–which I hope to introduce to the Palestinian NGO, The Holy Land Trust where I am currently volunteering. They are teaching leadership, non-violence philosophy and "thinking outside the box" especially to Palestinian women. Very exciting!

It was through Sue Woerhlin, Professor, and Wonderful Person, at Antioch University Seattle, from whomI learned about this wonderful meeting facilitation tool. I will be using the cards to facilitate a new Spanish conversation group at a local retirement community to start up April 16, 2015. The group is for individuals who love the Spanish language, and have an affinity for the peoples/countries where Spanish is spoken, which, of course, includes the U.S.! I hope to facilitate lively and enjoyable conversations in Spanish where folks can feel relaxed, enthused and enjoy ownership in the way in which our group evolves. Thanks! so much for creating these cards. Mil gracias! ~ Dolores

I don't know who I am but I do like to experiment, observe truth and see the huge beauty and possibility in most any situation. It's pretty clear to me that collective knowledge-building is a beautiful thing and that so many things where people think: "I can't" can easily be turned to "we can." I coach and facilitate and I guess my picture of an ideal life would be having one Co-Sensing Style Action Learning Coaching session a day or Dynamic Stillness Craniosacral or a Piano Portrait (where the piano is a voice in the dialogue). I'm constantly seeing the possibility that our medicine just might come from our loves and our passions. It might just be that simple.

And, we co-created electronic medical record, on-line physician ordering and much more.

I find ex-votos and other forms of devotional offerings fascinating, particularly as the topic has few boundaries (we find offerings across a wide scope of time and space). I also focus on museums, objects, and displays from a curatorial perspective as well as through theoretical interpretations of narrative and display.

Kavana Tree Bressen

Roles: Ambassador/Steward, Core Group, Site Administrator
I have been blessed for many years with a calling supporting groups to function well, which is fulfilled through teaching, facilitation, and organizational design. I work primarily with groups in my geographic region. I founded the Group Pattern Language Project in 2008, and since publication in 2011 have been joyfully watching it make its way around the world. I think the most powerful implementation of the Group Works deck happens when organizations integrate it into their day-to-day operations and culture. As of this writing (early 2017), i am passionate about possibilities arising from Laloux's insights into "teal" organizations, and am actively seeking colleagues and playmates in that realm.

I am an entrepreneur, interdisciplinary thinker, attention economist, activist advocate, inventor, consultant, social artist, cultural creative & social architect. I've dedicated my life to increasing the impact social change makers have on society. Both my life and professional experiences have afforded me the opportunity to gain the insight of how a sense of community can be formed anywhere in various ways. With that knowledge I strive to help globally shift the current paradigm we all live in to a new one that benefits us all, as well as the planet. I'm often found building bridges between niche groups of social change movements, and helping translate between thought leaders found within them. My solution-centered thinking,tenacious and straightford style has garnered respect internationally having many people seek me out for counsel and mentorship. Seeing that there was a significant need for information and instruction regarding founding and starting social good type programming, movements, and intentional communities I took part in the development of The Transition ( creating a hub where like-minded proactive people could unify their good work efforts and exchange experiences from the trenches. I'm a research driven, lifelong learner, who uses that knowledge to build stronger relationships among communities and with individuals from around the world. You can find me online at:

Originally I came across pattern language (online) through Doug Schuler. I was taught more (online) by Helmut Leitner, and then via F2F session at London Knowledge Lab led by Yishay Mor. When Yishay was preparing to co-edit a pattern language book (related to an area of education I knew about) he sent out a call for contributions saying the contributors would be shepherded regarding the pattern language side of things. This was how I learned more. I am interested in how pattern language can help me (and people in my networks) to share insights with each other despite coming from very different areas of interest.

I live on 8 acres of pinon, juniper and sage on a mesa in Taos New Mexico, a landscaped shared with me by small groups of deer, coyotes, birds, rabbits and an occasional bobcat. My relationship with this land for the past 38 years has informed, inspired and sustained me. I was originally trained as a Council Process facilitator at a Zen Center, and used Council process with professionals and community members in an 8 day Compassionate End of Life Care program. I also co-directed a prison project and regularly spent time with women in jail and in prison. More recently I spent 14 years facilitating Restorative Justice for juveniles and their affected community and currently train others in New Mexico to implement RJ with juveniles. I was the Restorative Justice Resource person for the IIPS Peace and Conflict resolution 3 week training for 34 young professionals from 17 countries, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Egypt, Lebanon, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan and Miramar, which was held in Thailand in 2012. I am the the Spiritual Care and Bereavement Provider and the Manger and trainer for Hospice Volunteers at Mtn Home Health in Taos, New Mexico and volunteered at a hospice in Rishikesh, India in 2016. I love the opportunity to exchange ideas, skills and insights with diverse populations and seek out and incorporate new ways to create interactive learning and sharing situations, because their is so much wisdom in the world.

I am very interested (excited really) about how we construct our reality and how we hold our selves and our perceptions in place by non-verbal, non-cognitive, assumptive patterns and schemas. There seem to be complementary sets of dynamics including safety-reactivity-attachment alongside expansion-creativity-emergence. Maybe we can only know about them by pausing-doing-reflecting-iterating-not knowing... in some right-seeming jumble that orders itself and us.

I am a lifelong learner, and I do my best to share my learning with others and create the conditions for learning within the groups, systems, and communities I connect with. I practice this in a lot of different ways, and I fail in a lot of different ways too. Today I am excited about taking my learning in more challenging directions for me: like applied math in the form of programming, data science, and more scientific areas like carbon capture, etc. I want to see if there's a way that I can connect everything I've learned so far as a social scientist, political theorist, facilitator, process designer, digital marketer, etc. with these more robust ways to understand and operate with reality, so as to help us address the extremely serious challenges we collectively face. I'm interested in the intersection of group work in this combined space of group practice, digital tech, science, and complexity, and I'd be open to exploring connections with anyone who is also working in this way at the edge of the future. More about me, specifically, here: and more about one of my key projects here: httpe:// Soon I will also share a co-op I am in the process of developing amongst other consultants. Stay tuned!

The same I experienced in the different market entrance tasks in many countries with our organization. International project management in medical equipment devices needs to have also collective wisdom.of all participants for succesful completion on both sides.
