New Resource for Bringing Social Change Leaders Together

Fran Korten from Yes! Magazine (www.yesmagazine.org) just let us know about a great resource. Over a five year period Yes! ran a series of retreats called the “State of the Possible” that were a form of dialogue and deliberation among very diverse social change leaders. The workshops attracted over 200 social change leaders, and inspired the publication of a booklet reviewing the lessons learned about how to bring diverse leaders together in ways that encourage heartfelt connection, create lasting friendships, and enable people to see themselves as part of a much larger movement for change in this country and beyond. That booklet, entitled “Movement Building for Transformational Change: Bringing Together Diverse Leaders for Connection and Vision” is now available for downloading for free from the Yes! website. It’s in two forms — an e-book for reading on line, and a downloadable version for printing. It’s also available in hard copy for just $5.00. To download or order the book, go to http://yesmagazine.org/default.asp?ID=177.
