The universe is a "single, gorgeous celebratory event" (Berry) Celebrations on the CCP HQ rooftop! 

It's feeling like the roots are taking hold and a few tentative seedling leaves and branches are starting to stretch out. Along with deepening understanding of what CCP is on about, we've begun tweeting and posting to a FB page and an Instagram account. Let the games begin! (check out the buttons on the sidebar)

This week in Community consciousness - learning to be present to the planet in a mutually beneficial manner: 

Needing the shift
Any shift in consciousness starts with a felt need to make a change. This week's pressure for change? Continuing to come to terms with the outcome of the US election. How to live in a world tilted towards racism, sexism, nationalism, and exploitation of the Earth?

"Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out." Margaret Wheatley So Far From Home: Lost and Found in a Brave New World

Making the shift:
This week was all about mindfulness. Just breathe. Sit for 9 minutes, 3X a day, and keep your head together. Especially between articles about the election...

Living the shift:
Hopeful living this week, doing what makes sense regardless of how it turns out, included ordering a double-chamber composting tumbler to continue equipping the CCP HQ for hands-on connection to the wonder of eating the sun's energy in the form of plants we share space with.

Motto of the Week: When life gives you shit, make compost.
