How We Will:
Organizing a Bare Bones Threefold Cultural Revolution
Hosted by Urban First Aid - Art As Medicine &
The Elderberries 3Fold Cafe Chicago
4251 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60618-2953
The Cultural Revolution continues!
Organizing for systemic change —
a separation of powers into three different spheres of action:
Culture - Economics - Political
Freedom - Kinship - Equality
2018 is a pivotal year in the United States and also around the world. We will step into organizing the three spheres particularly, through what lives already in our community and then seeking beyond to allies and partners.
Step by step organizing strategies and tools will be at the forefront of this bare bones session of How We Will - 3folding our Cultural Revolution. We will strategize together as to how to bring about a community of like-minded organizations working in agriculture, education, medicine, art and more which can open up a conversation on Rudolf Steiner's work for a threefold consideration.
First up Kait Ziegler for our How We Will: Threefolding our Cultural Revolution strategy sessions. Mid July Kait will be at the Goetheanum in Dornach where she will present her work on Theory U at the Youth Section gathering and then will co-present with Gerald Haefner at YIP in September.
Elizabeth Weeks will co-lead conversations throughout the Labor Day weekend in Chicago: Periphery & Center - The work at Elderberries Threefold Cafe in Hollywood has specifically been around how to create a culture of selflessness where we make room to the ninth degree for the other.
Rudolf Steiner shares: 'He who would be a true member should strive in the deepest places of his soul for inner tolerance towards his fellow-men. To understand one's fellow-man ? even where he thinks and does things which one would not like to think and do oneself ? this should be the ideal.'
Strategizing a way forward no matter what country you live in! Nathaniel Williams and his community are working on a new form of economics in their upstate New York neighborhood and we are aiming to hear about this and to really break down into groups along the lines of the Economic, Cultural and Political spheres to find a way forward.
In times like this, when ALL is falling down around us, we need a full on systemic change. Our time is asking for a separation of powers where the rights gained are not just taken away at whim by whoever is 'in charge of' the government and depending on their own political/economic/religious ideology.
The way we are battling for our rights is putting money at the forefront versus our values. We need our values in the front first. What are our values as citizens of the United States? Do we value human beings and the earth and all living beings or do we not? It feels like the last ball has dropped and the judiciary can really no longer do it's job as it's the last bastion that would uphold Equality and it is so polarized along political lines that it no longer serves rather it serves the smallest percentage of human beings who are able to buy more Rights for themselves. In a Threefold system you cannot buy more Rights for yourself as there is no money in politics.
Economic system is dead. Here we would raise up a Beloved Community
Political system is dead. Here we would establish in our societal laws Equal Rights for all
Civil Society yet to be born. here we would honor Freedom of the individual.
Not about Socialism or Communism or Capitalism but a time for a fourth way which honors moving away for me me me and me and mine a 4.0 Economy - from Ego to Eco.
Our team here in Hollywood will also share the tools we have learned working with the Poor People's Campaign around Fusion Coaltions.
We will also be building out the cafe space two weeks before and two weeks after for those who can stay and help get this Elderberries 3Fold Cafe Chicago up and running!
