PatternDynamics Workshop

January 21, 2013 — Transition Whatcom is hosting a workshop with “The Pattern Guy” Tim Winton from Australia to discuss PatternDynamics™, on January 29, 2013 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m at the RE Sources Sustainable Living Center on 2309 Meridian Street, in Bellngham, Washington above the RE Store.  PatternDynamics™ is perhaps part of the next wave of development coming out of Permaculture and Integral Theory and Christopher Alexander’s Pattern Languaging. The event is free but is suggesting a $15 donation.

PatternDynamics™ is an Integral Sustainability Pattern Language. It’s a smart, accessible, and fun way to learn collaborative systems thinking. Tim Winton is Founder and Director of PatternDynamics™, an Integral Sustainability Pattern Language, as a planetary social enterprise. He developed it while managing and acting as chief instructor of Permaforest Trust, a not-for-profit sustainability education organization in New South Wales, Australia. As a sustainability educator, Tim has developed training modules, courses and workshops in integral sustainability, sustainability principles, permaculture design, PatternDynamics™  and sustainable forestry. Tim blogs at http://thepatternguy.com.

At the workshop you will gain essential 21st Century skills:

  • Learn to see the Patterns that help you thrive through simplifying a complex world.
  • See holistic solutions to personal, organizational, and social challenges.
  • Become one of those people who can ‘connect the dots’ and explain why systems thinking is important.
  • Build a new set of communications skills based on ‘collaborative systems thinking’.
  • Learn a tool for creating ‘mass collaboration’ to harness the power of collective intelligence.
  • Discover a whole new approach to creative design.
  • Learn a new way of expressing principles of sustainability.
  • Gain an introduction to a high level method of building organizational effectiveness.
  • Experience the ‘Source’ of deep meaning that facilitates high levels of self-organization.

What will I experience at the Workshop?

The PatternDynamics™ Evening Workshop, led by founder Tim Winton, is a participatory group process that includes introduction to the Patterns, group discussions, workshopping of participants’ organizational challenges, and a simple set of movements related to each Pattern. In learning to use the Patterns participants collectively embody, discuss, and experiment with the organizing principles that sustain complex dynamic systems and experience the collective awareness and deep meaning generated through participating in a highly unified organization.
