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

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 – starting at 10am Pacific Time – 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. He will remain after the call to talk with anyone who has further questions or comments.

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 Sept 4th and then a reminder one hour before the event.  This event is free of charge

Wise Democracy Pattern Language Community of Practice “Deep Dive” experience

On Tuesday September 19th at 10am Pacific Time, we will take a deep dive into one of the most important patterns in the Wise Democracy Pattern Language – Using Diversity and Disturbance Creatively.

By “deep dive” we mean that we will explore all the material on its dedicated web page – its 50 word “heart” description, its video and associated “Going Deeper” essay, its list of “Examples and Resources”, and its related patterns. We will also explore any resources, references, experiences, and questions that participants bring to our shared inquiry about this pattern. We will discuss what Using Diversity and Disturbance Creatively has to do with wise democracy.

The event will indeed be a deep dive, and it will give all of us a better sense of how rich the Wise Democracy Pattern Language is even at this initial stage in its evolution.

All subscribers to the WD-PL newsletter are invited to attend, and instructions for participating will be sent out in the newsletter.  So if you’d like to participate, subscribe to the newsletter.
