Mt. Shasta Gift Community Events

Shasta Commons presents Building Gift Community Seminar and Workshop with Bill Kauth and Zoe Alowan.

6 year-old Sabina promotes Gift Circles – from the heart!

Friends, we are seeing a potent interest in Gift Community!!

Last year, one of the stops on our seminar tour was a town in Northern California, where we used a room at the local co-op for 30 people and 60 showed up.  One of those people came with her dad and a painted on wolf face, which sure delighted me.

Recently, Andrei, the dad sent us a note saying: “I thought you might really enjoy this short video clip of our 6 year old daughter Sabina, after we had just attended our local Gift Circle.”  The simple truth she spoke about “Gift Community” went viral very quickly with well over 100,000 hits.  We want you to see it!!  Enjoy!

The sheer innocent beauty of Sabina’s clarity and intention sure touched our hearts.  Note how she understands that “…people get what they need, and don’t have to pay, and exchange hugs or money, whatever works as long as it is from the heart.”

We believe that this is where the world is going, as the old systems transition. Please join
us in our “Gift Community” movement.  It’s what we all want, let us build the
new Gift Culture!

Warm blessings,
Bill & Zoe

Ron’s Gift to Many, Many Lives

If you’ve ever heard Bill talk about Ron Kurtz, founder of Hakomi, in the early days of their men’s group in Ashland, you’d know how much he treasured their friendship. Ron’s Memorial Service was yesterday in Ashland. We participated in the afternoon memorial service at Transformation Pathways. What a tangible, body felt experience it was of how people from all over the world came together to mirror each other and share this man’s gift to their lives. What outrageous generosity! What a resounding resonance of a very big truth: We Need Each Other’s Love. That is Hakomi. Thank you Ron!

On the Road Again-Seeding Gift Community

Getting ready to go back on the road again. This time going south to California ( Willits to Santa Barbara and then back to Grass Valley.) OK! So first stop is Willits, on Sunday, Jan. 28th at The Grange. To see our whole schedule click on 2011 Events. For those who are interested in this idea of Gift Community, I think  our friend Charles Eisenstein, did an excellent, “best ever” rap on the Gift at a recent Santa Fe Time Bank event. It is long (51 min.) but worth watching. To watch it click Charles Eisenstein: “Living In The Gift Economy” . Here’s our Willits flyer.
