Free “Open House” Tour of the Wise Democracy Pattern Language Website

Tour Guide: Tom Atlee

This free public event is for anyone interested in learning more about the Wise Democracy Project.  It provides an excellent opportunity to rapidly gain familiarity with the ideas behind the wise democracy worldview and the extensive resources offered on the project’s vast website. 

During this 90 minute Zoom teleconference call, Tom Atlee –  founder of the Wise Democracy Project and primary creator of the wise democracy pattern language – will guide us through the entire WD-PL website, providing clarifying commentary along the way.  After that he’ll take 20-30 minutes to address our questions.  If a dozen people show up, it will be an intimate affair.  If lots of people show up, we’ll have folks write their questions in the videoconference’s chat box and Tom will address themes he sees among them.

This free gathering will be held on Wednesday June 7th from 10am until 11:30am Pacific Time using Zoom videoconferencing. If you have not used Zoom before, you can download the free software for it at

To participate, register directly at Eventbrite or send an email to with “WD-PL Open House” in the subject line.  You will receive an instructional invitation on June 6 and then a reminder one hour before the event.

Exploring the Wise Democracy Pattern Language with Tom Atlee and each other

Are you a Wise Democracy Project newsletter subscriber?  Have you spent an hour or more exploring the Wise Democracy Pattern Language website? Then you can attend this special free two-hour teleconference call with Tom Atlee on Tuesday June 13th starting at 10am Pacific Time.  

(If you who are new to the Wise Democracy Project, take the Introductory Tour on June 7th that will qualify you for the June 13th call.)

This free June 13th call will be limited to 16 participants who have explored the WD-PL website for at least an hour. Each will share (a) a wise democracy pattern that they consider important and (b) a question that is alive for them in their life and work. Then Tom will offer stories and examples to expand our knowledge of several of the patterns that support a collaborative culture and invite our thoughts about them.
