Edward’s Envision Offering:
A conversation on bridging the gaps between communities…
How do we foster inter-community collaboration, remove redundancies, and thrive as an ecosystem, instead of a collection of individual communities? We all share a common vision of abundant, thriving communities, and some of us are even building them and living in them, but how we can do a better job and bridging the gap..
We are living in an age with increased communication and convergence amongst our tribes – a time of neotribalism. Join Edward on a journey that explores the common language that allows this conversation to exist. A language based in the clear expression of values and realized in the immediate experiences that bring our tribes together. We will examine the structure of belonging, language of community, individual vs collective purpose, and discovering how one can best identify and serve their tribe to their full
