A Day with Orland Bishop
Toward a Shared Future
How can we work together to develop a healthy future? The process we will use is a consensus model of collective visioning towards a shared future. It allows a group to co-create the essential framework for agreement and a shared understanding of an imagined future.
We will use Live Power Community Farm as a model to work forward with into the future.
We will come to steps, now, soon and later in the creative process of time and how things come into form. We will begin and see how far we get in the process

ShadeTree serves as an intentional community of mentors, elders, teachers, artists, healers and advocates for the healthy development of children and youth.
Orland’s work in healing and human development is framed by an extensive study of medicine, naturopathy, psychology and indigenous cosmologies, primarily those of South and West Africa. He is a well-known speaker in Anthroposophical circles.
