    book does not explore this area as Anarchist have But which ever is choose we must be mindful of the fact that ALL of them ought to be an open unending process which is the principle of An archy which should lead us to something beyond even that and NOT some dogma The problem with 1 is that this would probably hinder the process of Gentle Action and may even hinder creative development of human race to educate themselves to the point were they are able through GA to perceive the fundamental problem with the most dominate paradigm Personally I prefer 2 but of course ideally 3 David s book can be seen this way that s the beauty while David has a particular vision of improving the system his idea of Gentle Action and the book it self has buried within it a multiplicity of visions and perspectives I guess I read it without the trust ethical stance prior to the book coming out so it was perhaps easier for me to see I know I read it after David told me it was in his 1991 book Philosophers stone and I also read his first paper on GA 1989 both of which give you GA without the trust in institutions business As for trust between individuals or society well he does have a point but trust in institutions is another thing and historical viewed it can be somewhat misplaced especially when those institutions like corporations nation states are illegitimately imposed themselves As Philosopher David Hume once said why obey Govtnment since as he rightly points out they like Corporations have imposed themselves via conquest force and coersion Now if David Peat is correct which I think he is about folk who imposing their solutions on the world then

    and in turn felt isolated And so the Eden Project proposed that on Sunday July 19 of this year people should go into the streets and eat lunch together Although I do not yet know the actual numbers involved it appears that in most major cities hundreds of people turned out to each lunch together and this was repeated in smaller communities The Eden project and those supporting The Big Lunch are also encouraging people to grow their own food and flowers to share seeds make street art form bands and reclaim the street as a place to tell stories You can see more at http www thebiglunch com big idea what is Gentle Action 1 COMMENT JULY 21ST 2009 By F DAVID PEAT Rosa Parks Richard Morris Rodriques Jr recently sent me some additional information on Rosa Parkes who in December 1955 was arrested for refusing to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery Alabama Her action acted as a powerful catalyst in the Civil Rights movement Earlier the same year Parkes who was also secretary to the Montgomery chapter of the NAACP had attended a workshop on school desegration run by the Highlander Folk School Highlander was founded in 1932 in order to help the labor movement in the south east United States but in 1953 changed its focus towards Civil Rights While it is certainly true that Parks felt tired after a day s work when she refused to give up her seat she had already been sensitized to issues of civil rights Gentle Action 0 COMMENTS JULY 20TH 2009 By F DAVID PEAT Each One Teach One In my book on Gentle Action it attribute the Each One Teach One to Paolo Freire Now while Friere s work in Brazil and Chile was enormously influential in fact he was not the person who was originally responsible for the movement Having heard the recent New Dimensions Radio interview on Gentle Action Juliette Mondot wrote to me I have just enjoyed listening to your interview on NPR I would like to correct one bit of misinformation Each One Teach One was actually introduced as a concept before WWII by Dr Frank Laubach the great pioneer in adult literacy whose mission to the Moro tribe in the Philipines resulted in his world wide literacy work When the depression happened and Dr Laubach had to stop paying his literacy teachers to the Muslim tribes a Muslim Village elder announced that the literacy lessons would not end because of the lack of money rather that each one who learned to read and write would teach another Hence the Each One Teach One concept was started I heard this story from the lips of Dr Bob Laubach Dr Frank s wonderful son who is now in his 90s The Laubach Literacy organization headquartered in Syracuse New York can give you more information on this remarkable work Gentle Action 2 COMMENTS JULY 20TH 2009 By F DAVID PEAT Walking the Cherokee

    been reading Zen Mind Beginner s Mind by Shunryu Suzuki and it made me realize the similarities between Creative Suspension and Beginner s Mind or the secret of Zen practice as Suzuki says He says In the beginner s mind there are many possibilities but in the expert s mind there are few It seems so many of us are going around claiming we are experts and attempting to solve problems when a much better approach would be to become child like again to hold creative suspension to return to Beginner s Mind As Suzuki states But usually without being aware of it we try to change something other than ourselves we try to order things outside us But it is impossible to organize things if you yourself are not in order When you do things in the right way at the right time everything else will be organized Other Links to this Post RSS feed for comments on this post TrackBack URI Leave a comment Name Email not published Website Comment moderation is in use Your comment will appear shortly Entries RSS Comments RSS About this blog Categories Creative Suspension Gentle Action Trust Recent posts Listening Unsweet Charity Maxims Sustainable City of the Future SHAPE program Complete list of recent posts Recent Comments Andrea Barbieri on Rabbits in Kenya charity on Rabbits in Kenya Boniface MW on Rabbits in Kenya Tracy on Rabbits in Kenya Janet Bravo on Rabbits in Kenya Complete list of recent comments Links Buy F David Peat s Gentle Action F David Peat Pari Center for New Learning Archives December 2011 November 2011 August 2011 April 2011 December 2010 November 2010 September 2010 August 2010 July 2010 June 2010 January 2010 December 2009 October 2009 September 2009 August 2009 July 2009 May 2009 April 2009

  • Gentle Action Blog » Hello world!
    action becomes the outwards sign of an interaction with our consciousness that in fact one person can change all humanity and all life on earth by just changing his her reality creative suspension is also the outward motion of abstracting the mind and accessing and allowing the consciousness to manifest itself by allowing ourself to access the universal consciousness by suspending thought we allow reality to act on another level and so change can be brought about i hope i have added something to the conversation the future is to be aware of our consciousness from the cellular level to the macro level and therefore produce real effect in a difficult world By Bonnie May 1 2009 6 15 pm I have been reading Zen Mind Beginner s Mind by Shunryu Suzuki and it made me realize the similarities between Creative Suspension and Beginner s Mind or the secret of Zen practice as Suzuki says He says In the beginner s mind there are many possibilities but in the expert s mind there are few It seems so many of us are going around claiming we are experts and attempting to solve problems when a much better approach would be to become child like again to hold creative suspension to return to Beginner s Mind As Suzuki states But usually without being aware of it we try to change something other than ourselves we try to order things outside us But it is impossible to organize things if you yourself are not in order When you do things in the right way at the right time everything else will be organized Other Links to this Post RSS feed for comments on this post TrackBack URI Leave a comment Name Email not published Website Comment moderation is in use Your comment
