All of the calls will follow the same 60 minute format:
1. Check-in and tech issues/norms:
* Participants are welcome to join late or leave early as needed to fit their schedule. We welcome all efforts to connect with community.
* We may experience internet connectivity issues. If so, please just hang in there, internet usually resolves itself. Should the call get disconnected, stay on the line and the host will simply call back in.
* People have different capacities with Zoom as well as varying internet capability. We will practice patience and radical inclusivity with all participants.
* Please limit use of “chat” function. This function tends to distract the facilitator, and we want to hear from everyone – if you want to share, please share with the group!
* Please raise hand to speak. We will use the “move forward, move back” paradigm. This means if you’re someone who tends to not speak a lot, please move up into a role of speaking more. If you tend to speak a lot, please move up into a role of listening more.
* If you would like to be added to our mailing list, please type your name and email into chat directed to Cedarsong Way.
* These conversations are meant to be collective “hive mind” offerings to build community connections. They are not classes or lessons. Please speak from your own direct experience and wear your hat of community member rather than teacher.
* Please be aware of the number of people on the call and the 60 minutes we have scheduled and gauge your responses and input accordingly.
2. Brief introductions simply to include your name, where you are calling from – please let us know the indigenous land you are on. If you don’t yet know it, that’s no problem, now is a great time for you to look into for next time! – the pronouns you use, (let’s not use the term “preferred”) and this simple prompt question to be answered in 1 – 3 words: “What aspect of the natural world is most present for you today – perhaps a bush in front of your house, a tea you are drinking, a new bird at your feeder….”
3. Conversation host frames conversation
4. Community responds – Think of the conversation like a “picnic” in the grass; it’s a flowing conversation with the intention to connect and build community around
While we normally do not record the conversations, we are making an exception for our series on inclusion, we know this conversation is critical to broadening our communities and creating more access to outdoor education and forest schools.
