Supporting a Holacracy Pilgrimage

Dear Friends,

This post is for seeking support for my two month Holacracy Learning Pilgrimage in US. I am looking for organisations or businesses working with Holacracy and who are open to have me be at their spaces so I can learn from their experience of being with Holacracy.

I have been exploring living, learning and sharing ways to build authentic relationships and collaborative processes with Nonviolent Communication(NVC) and Sociocracy for last few years. For deepening my practice and bring my learnings to the world I have also initiated an organisation AhimsaGram, which is for practicing these processes in order to learn them deeply and  offer them to the larger community. We are now registered as a proprietorship firm with Government of India registered by Shammi Nanda. Ours is a business with a commitment to social change and we have created a community space in Jaipur, India.  See our Vision, Mission and Aim here. At Ahimsagram we are now governing ourselves with Holacracy, which is a self organised management system.

Adventures with Collaboration: My Journey on these subjects has been full of celebrations and challenges.  When I search for organisations, groups or movements which work with the spirit of co-creation where each person has autonomy with their work while holding interdependence with others, I am hardly able to find any or just a few around me. I mostly found people working with different forms of control and command structures, sometimes they are open and sometimes they work under a shadow power figures.  I had initiated AhimsaGram two years ago to see if we humans can work together for a shared purpose? Some people joined the team to live this exploration with me and am grateful for whatever time and energy they put into this exploratory project.

This journey to create the world of my dream has at times been extremely difficult, sometimes to the point of extreme pain and hopelessness and at times along with deep hurt and resentment with the other team members.  There were moments when I was about to come to a ‘conclusion’ that human beings are only meant to work with domination and control, right and wrong, punishment and reward. Yet, there were moments, when there was trust, inspiration, shared authority and an authentic spirit of co-creation playing itself in actions. I give a lot of credit to NVC and Holacracy for these moments. I realised that most of us were behaving in response to our contexts, which we had inherited from the dominant systems, which rely on control and command principles for organising teams. I realised that when the systems change, it leads to the change in the contexts, which impacts the way we act in those different contexts. I am seeking to find and create processes and systems which can change the context to make them more suitable for distribution of power and allows human beings to come to their deep spiritual place while contributing their gifts to the universe.

Holacracy – The Promise to Self Organise: I also experienced beautiful moments of collaboration, autonomy arising  from distributed authority, self responsibility and synergy while we are governing Ahimsagram with Holacracy. As we have gone deeper with it lately, our meetings are becoming more effective and we are able to build the organisation day by day by creating appropriate roles, accountabilities and policies. Having been inspired by Holacracy in the last one year,  I now chose to go for this practitioner training in USA and to visit organisations working there with different tools and processes for fostering co-creation.

With Participants from the Practitioner Training in New York from 16th to 20th April facilitated by Brian Robertson and Holacracy One team.

Holacracy Learning Pilgrimage: I am taking this learning journey in US for a period of about three months from 13 April to 5 June, 2018. I have already completed Holacracy Practitioner Training from 16th to 20th April with Holacracy One, a company which created Holacracy. Details of the five day training are at https://goo.gl/5NHJzT. 

I am now travelling in the US for another one and half month, visiting organisations, eco villages and businesses which are using Holacracy and other collaborative practices. I would refer to my journey as as a pilgrimage as I believe that these learnings can change my life at a deep spiritual level by giving me ways to  create and governance systems which work in the spirit of co-creation. This learning is eventually going to enrich me and my community and contribute towards creating a more humane world.

Collecting Harvests and Sharing the Learnings: I will be capturing and harvesting stories of Holacracy implementation, the celebrations and challenges of those who have practiced it and are at various stages of their journeys, making videos, podcasts, blogs and other learning materiel during my journey.

Here is details about some of the organisations that I plan  to visit during my trip to US during my journey.

I need lot of support from the community and well wishers to make this journey happen. 

How could you support this Journey?

  1. If you are practicing Holacracy and your organisation is willing to have me be with you, for a period of 2 to 6 days please write to me at shamminanda@gmail.com. I also like to share Nonviolent Communication(NVC), my work on food and healing, as well as organic farming, in the spirit of gift as I travel around the country during this pilgrimage.  You will have a glimpse of my offerings if you are open to receive them when I come to your place. 
  2. You could offer me financial support for my travel, stay and food etc. I need upto Rs 3,500 USD still to make this journey happen further. Any amount of support is welcome so don’t hesitate if you think you have a small amount. Each contribution counts and comes with blessings.

If you have any clarifications, please feel free to ask me. In case there is any cross posting I request you to bear with it and let us know of it so we can avoid it in the future.

Alternative to Violence Project(AVP) and Whole Foods in NY

I am grateful to James Green for coming to pick me up at New York Airport and hosting me while I am there for  my Holacracy Pilgrimage. We had met over my NVC webinar and it’s great to have support from NVC community. He gave me a choice to go to his home or the whole food store, and I left it to him to decide and he chose the latter.  

james at whole foods

Moment, I went there, I felt a sense of common purpose with the folks who are growing organic foods, bringing them in the cities to sell/offer it in different parts of the world and celebrate their growth. There was a wide variety of seeds like sunflower and pumpkin which I enjoyed. Got moong beans and chana along with veggies. It reminded me of our farmers market in Jaipur and how the community is growing around it and am hopeful for the world when I see such places all over the world.

It was also great to talk to James and hear about so many interesting projects around him and some of them that he is also involved with, like the Alternatives to Violence Project(AVP) which is active in prisons and even in some schools and is  widespread into many cities in US. It sees like a simple process which can be learnt and followed by community support. I also heard from him about the idea of ‘Landing Strip’ for people who are coming out of prison to integrate them into the society and make that easier for them. Both projects are having Quaker community as its hosts, and I would like to visit them, while I am here.

Screen Shot 2018-04-14 at 5.00.48 am.png

I would like the people of the city to engage with the prisons. I have casually ignored them as a place where I don’t need to go or bother much about what’s happening inside. If I want to work to minimise violence in our society I have to engage with prisons too and the people there. As Miki says “fair weather NVC is easy”, its important we take the work of nonviolence to challenging space and we need to also gradually mobilise our resources to engage with people who are in the prison or coming out of them.

Inspired by AVP project since I heard it today here in US and hope that myself and AhimsaGram can begin do something on these lines in Jaipur and encourage others to do such projects. If there is anyone else in India or elsewhere who is working on such projects or would like to work on supporting each other for this work please do write to us at ahimsagram@gmail.com

It is nourishing to hear people working around the body and the soul at individual and community level all over the world and enjoying a sense of community with them.

Seeking support for Holacracy Pilgrimage and AhimsaGram

Dear Friends,

This post is for seeking support for two things:

  1. Sharing my(Shammi’s) Holacracy Learning Pilgrimage and to seek support  for it.
  2. Seeking support for sustenance Ahimsagram for the next four months.

You might  be aware that I have been exploring living, learning and sharing ways to build authentic relationships and collaborative processes with Nonviolent Communication(NVC) and Sociocracy for last few years. For the last one year I am working on Holacracy and enjoying the power of effective co-creation with it. I have also initiated a space ahimsagram, which is an organisation for practicing these processes in order to learn them deeply and  offer them to the larger community. My journey on these subjects, before and with Ahimsagram,  has been full of celebrations and challenges. At Ahimsagram we are also finding ways to have a symbiotic relation between Holacracy and NVC as they both could support us in building a collaborative world.  

circle turkey .jpg

Exploring the possibility to collaborate: When I search for organisations, groups or movements which work with the spirit of co-creation where each person has autonomy with their work while holding interdependence with others, I am hardly able to find any or just a few. I mostly found people working with different forms of control and command structures, sometimes they are open and sometimes they work under a shadow power figures.  I had initiated ahimsagram two years ago to see if we humans can work together for a shared purpose? Some people joined the team to live this exploration with me and am grateful for whatever time and energy they put into this exploratory project.

This journey to create the world of my dream has at times been extremely difficult, sometimes to the point of extreme pain and hopelessness and at times along with deep hurt and resentment with the other team members.  There were moments when I was about to come to a ‘conclusion’ that human beings are only meant to work with domination and control, right and wrong, punishment and reward. Yet, there were moments, when there was trust, inspiration, shared authority and an authentic spirit of co-creation playing itself in actions. I give a lot of credit to NVC and Holacracy for these moments. I realised that most of us were behaving in response to our contexts, which we had inherited from the dominant systems, which rely on control and command principles for organising teams. I realised that when the systems change, it leads to the change in the contexts, which impacts the way we act in those different contexts. I am seeking to find and create processes and systems which can change the context to make them more suitable for distribution of power and allows human beings to come to their deep spiritual place while contributing their gifts to the universe.

IMG_7993.jpg

I also experienced beautiful moments of collaboration, autonomy arising  from distributed authority, self responsibility and synergy while we are governing Ahimsagram with Holacracy. As we have gone deeper with Holacracy lately our meetings are becoming more effective and we are able to build the organisation day by day by creating appropriate roles, accountabilities and policies. Having been inspired by Holacracy in the last one year,  I now chose to go for this practitioner training in USA and to visit organisations working there with different tools and processes for fostering co-creation.

Learning Pilgrimage: I am taking this learning journey in US for a period of two months. After the five day Holacracy Practitioner training from 16th to 20th April with Holacracy One, a company which created Holacracy, I plan to travel in US for another one and half month, visiting organisations, eco villages and businesses which are using Holacracy and other collaborative practices. I would refer to my journey as as a pilgrimage as I believe the learnings can change my life at a deep spiritual level by giving me ways to  create and govern organisation which work in the spirit of co-creation. This learning is eventually going to enrich me and my community.

I already have support for the course fee and the ticket to US from Jaipur Rugs, am seeking additional financial support for travel and stay in the US for about 45 days.

I would need around 4,000 USD make this journey happen and requesting those who want to support me in this seeking of mine to support me so I can continue looking answers for authentic and effective ways of co-creating and bring them back home to share with our community.

Details of the five day Holacracy training are at https://goo.gl/5NHJzT  to be held at New York.

Screen Shot 2018-04-14 at 4.02.36 am.png

I am also sharing some info about the organisations that I am visiting during my trip to US to give you a sense of richness of learning that could emerge from this journey here  in this note at  https://goo.gl/zHMPu1

Besides, this ahimsagram is going through a financial crunch where we have loans from friends and have rents to pay and run the space I am imagining that our finances may get stabilised after a period of four months. Till that time we need support of Rs 50,000( 765 USD)per month, which comes to 2,00,000(3070 USD).

Ahimsgram is now registered as a proprietorship firm under the Udyog Adhar Scheme of Government of India by Shammi Nanda.  You can see our vision, mission and aim at https://goo.gl/sDoz8u. Our intent is to create a business which serves the community.

So in total I am looking for a fund of 7,000 USD(Approx Rs 4,56,000) for both the projects, My travel and sustenance for Ahimsagram for four months.

You are welcome to offer any amount. If you wish to contribute please write to me at ahimsagram@gmail.com  and I will send you our bank details. To those who offer the contributions we would also be sharing a doc which will from the time to time reflect the amount of money raised to meet the target of 7,000 USD so you can see how the fundraise is progressing and we can stop once we have reached the target amount.

If you have any clarifications, please feel free to answer. In case there is any cross posting I request you to bear with it and let us know so we can avoid it in the future.

Questioning ‘on screen violence’ to create a safe world for all.

Travelling on an international flight  in the night I see so many people watching films, which looks like the microcosm of our universe where each person could be sitting in front of their screen at home and picking up data and putting in their heads and part of their consciousness. The only difference is that I see them all here in one moment and one space, so gives me a glimpse of the magnitude of impact of screens in our lives.

Makes me aware of the dangers also of  extent to which media has pervaded our lives, reaching through different kind of platforms digitally.

IMG_8210

It gets worrisome when I see that so many of the films take violence and patriarchy so lightly and are full of them. No wonder it contributes to the world we are today, where violence is the answer for every tension or disconnect, the ‘wrong one’ can be punished or killed by the hero(the good one) or the police or the people(mob). This has happened since time immemorial and now at least we can transform this thinking. I think this normalisation of violence on screen ends up in the rapes and killings that we are seeing around us.

I wish someone could look at some films and make a count of slaps, punches, gunshots or swear words with naming women’s body parts, or swear words degrading women in general, the hero acting patronisingly to women characters and much more. Its high time there are talks and policies around projection of violence in media which even talk of stop this. Just as people thought of glorification of sati is connected to the sati that happens around us, we need to look critically at glorification and justification of violence that happens on the screens.

If we have enough support Ahimsagram could take up studying the glorification of violence on the screen and do some research in terms of the extent to which violence is being glorified and justified on our media and especially on cinema. If there is any one wanting to join us in this venture, please write to us at ahimsagram@gmail.com

Lets build a harmonious world together.

Control and Command to distributed Authority with Holacracy

At the moment I am living and contributing at Ahimsagram in Jaipur, which began as a community space for people with a shared desire to live, learn and Share NVC and collaborative systems like sociocracy and holacracy , while living sustainably. We began in April 2017 with Sociocracy as our governance system and now are moving to  Holacracy as a method for our governance, or rather we are in a live Holacracy ‘Experiment’ right now.  I am not sure how well it will work but as of now its promising as well as super challenging at the same time. Its supposed to be a system which encourages distribution of authority and does not have managers who manage people but each person has a domain and accountability which is meant to be clearly spelt out and they take charge of their decisions, while being connected to the common vision and purpose of the organisation.

IMG_2001

Introducing Holacracy is a tedious process and it does not have to happen all in one go, as we move on we naturally face problems, which in Holacracy is referred to as a ‘tension’ – a gap between what you want and where you are. It’s like an eco-system where the feedback moves within and among organisms(plants, animals, humans, elements of nature) and each part responds to the shifts by doing what they are meant to do. There is on one boss in a forest which directs the forest but still things move on, with each entity as a managing themselves in accordance with the shared purpose and make the system resilient. It’s because it is in the DNA of the entity or being to meet the overall purpose by taking care of their particular roles and accountabilities.

Creating our social DNA

Now, when humans have to organise in organisations and businesses, we don’t have a DNA like the being in the forest which allows us to know and do our accountability or in others words have underdeveloped systems for collaboration. This is because our ideas of what’s possible and what’s not has been shaped by the belief systems of the society. If we live in fear we want to hide things and share it selectively, we assume that people are not to be trusted so we want to control and as well as  command the whole situation and not letting people act out their own roles with their power and creativity which stops them from growing. I have learnt that if we want to create collaborative organisation, the leaders have to unlearn their desire to save the organisation by jumping in at each crisis and attempting to fix it. As a founder of this space I have unneccesary done a lot of it, by taking the role of saviour and jump into every fight and force a solution rather than let the fight evolve so that the participants find their own answers with the given content and processes.It is important to create a systems where tensions can be harvested at the earliest. This way the person who experiences a tension comes forward to solve it. I am now learning that we can have a great dynamic growth if we can hold the space for tensions and let people take charge of their tensions. It reminds me of Dominic who intiaited the Restorative Circles process in Brazil uses the phrase “unravelling the gift of conflict”.

IMG_1376

Yet at the same time it takes time to set up the system and every one falls back into the standard patterns of centralised command and control organisation, either as an authority or as a receiver.If a farmer is doing chemical farming for 20 to 30 years  and then they start doing something totally new, like creating an eco-system of farming,  it needs work to create a different atmosphere and processes. In Organic farming, the farmer began’s to rely on different elements of nature to let them do their role and begins to collaborate with them. The ants, bats, snakes and owls are seen as friends and entrusted to do their job. When we use chemical farming the first intervention is to put fertilisers which makes the soil acidic and kills all life which was earlier fertilising the soil. As a result when there is no living beings the whole job of fertilising is now to be done by more inputs from the farmer each year.  So when I came from a traditional control and command system, I wanted to make sure everything works perfect, there was a fear of failure so I became a ‘perfectionist’ in my own way, raising the bar for myself and making my own life difficult and some time that of others also even more painful.Instead of reling on the inherent creative potential the control and comand manager tends to impose their methods which distance the team members from taking initiative and as a result the manager has to put more and more inputs just as a farmer using chemical fertilizers has to increase the inputs each year. I do see that there were some met needs like we did ‘achieve’ a lot by having control and command energy but it seems some people stopped initiating things or worst is they came from past where there initiative was mocked or criticised so they were scared to come up with ideas, or it was not part of their agenda to trust themselves. So the so called people in power and those disempowered had set roles. Holacracy tries to break these roles in a way it has a  spirit of communism in action for me at this moment, may be tomorrow I might have a different opinion of it.

IMG_3552 (1)

So there is something in the system where, which Quakers  thought that everybody has the divine light, and that’s another kind of spirituality that we are talking about that every human being has the ‘anhad’, the unbounded potential and how can we have systems like, every seed has the same power to meet its purpose of life.

In this each element and player has a role, Like tagore said that freedom cannot happen to just one flower, the whole garden or forest has to bloom then there is freedom. Holacratic systems by setting up such process which bring in equivalence and transparency along with movement of feedbacks and distributed authority is also able to create an effective system. I am seeing the taste of this effectiveness and ease at moments and yet the challenge of learning, introducing and parcticing now processes which call for new habits and patterns. I will later on draw a comaparison between our control and command belief systems and habits with those that we need to bring in our lives to make systems like Holacracy work.

Looking for support to join the International Intensive Training(IIT) of Nonviolent Communicaton(NVC) in Srilanka. 

Dear Friends, There is an IIT happening from July 26 to August 4, 2017, in Srilanka and I intend to join it. The learning from here will deepen my understanding of NVC and support me in my work on sharing NVC back home. I have been offering NVC and this time I just want to go in a place where I can focus on my deepening of NVC. To know more about the program see http://www.cnvc.org/iit/2017-sri-lanka-iit

I am writing this to seek financial support of Rs 43,000 (670 US$) to Join it and would like to share why being here is important for me. This would cover my travel and contribution for the program. I am sharing my expense sheet  for transparency https://goo.gl/wsHA79,   If you need any clarification please write to me at shamminanda@gmail.com.

This IIT is  special for me not just for the trainers who are coming but I have a sense of connection with the Srilanka NVC community as I have been there twice to offer NVC trainings and I would be knowing a lot of people coming for the IIT. I would like people in this subcontinent to make alliance and support each other. See more about my sharing in Srilanka at https://goo.gl/yJiNtJ,  https://goo.gl/kXaRRj and https://goo.gl/EoUvFHI

Sharing NVC with Ben, Ramanusha, Fazal, Sivantha and Priya

I also appreciate the work of Jim and Jory, especially their Matrix about ‘Pathways to Liberation’. I have grown a lot in my nvc practice after seeing this work. I have heard a lot about them and would like to spend time with them.

I have learnt a lot from Katherine, especially on engaging with power and moving away from power over to power with. I have also learnt valuable work from her on healing old pain and have offered it to support other people.

I also feel connected to Ramanusha, as we have offered NVC trainings together where she was a co trainer and translation support and we share the vision of bringing NVC to people from all sections of the society and those in conflict situation. I have lot to learn from her on this kind of work as she is experienced with sharing NVC in areas of conflict.

Sharing NVC at farm, hosted by Trudy and Sion. 

Sabine, is also coming, who is working on community supported certification processes, which is also my interest as I have been working on challenges that arise from degrees and certification while want to create more wholesome ways for evaluating  the knowledge, skills and integrity of people who share NVC and the way they do it. Besides I have shared platform with her and co-facilitated Restorative Circles.

We also have Dunia Hategekimana from Rwanda. I see that I would like to understand how he sees the context of his regions and how it impacts his ways of sharing and practicing NVC and its form. I see a sense of shared past with Africa, and this is the first time I would be meeting a person from Africa and of colour who is a certified NVC trainer and would like to know about his challenges.

I would also like to share with the people there about the work that Ahimsagram is doing in India and want to invite people to be with us. Besides, we are also offering a training with Miki Kashtan in Jan 2018 on Transforming Organisations Through Collaborative Processes, and I would like to share about the offering so they can understand better in order to make an informed choice about joining us. This will also deepen the learning of NVC in this region and build stronger bonds.
