Appreciative Inquiry Process

Ongoing

The Appreciative Inquiry Process is one in which a community takes stock of what’s going right. It’s an opportunity to look back on the last several years and take an inventory of sorts to help determine the future direction for our leadership. It’s also the process by which a community gains clarity about what we value most highly and our reason for being. This is a three part process:

  • Interviews with members to gather information
  • Community Summit to confirm Values and determine the Mission
  • Creation (or renewal) of Strategic Plan

Appreciative Inquiry Interview training was held on October 21st to the volunteers who will be conducting the interviews. If you are a member of Unity of Olympia, expect a phone call. Input from all in our community is very valuable! If you have any questions, please contact the office here.

Meditations for Quantum Activism

December 16 & 30, January 13 & 27 | 5:30-6:30p | Facilitated by Jewell Hemanway

“Let’s raise the vibe as we move through the shortest days of the year! We will participate in a guided meditation, called Project Coherence, by Dr. Joe Dispenza. The purpose of the meditation is “raising the Earth’s electromagnetic field” to provide peace and healing for our world. 

 
No meditation experience necessary, just come and feel good. The explanation is 20 minutes. The meditation itself is 43 minutes in length. We will be placing our positive focus on our world. If you have not done Dispenza meditations before, this is a great way to be introduced. “
