The Party:

Come learn about a r(e)volutionary way for humanity to work together which has the potential to create a more responsive, conscious and coherent world, every-body-all-at-once.  This inaugural event is the first of many http://coolparties.samsarahouse.org offered each month at a new shared-community space being launched in Bloomingdale.  “Samsara House 2023” at 36 R Street NW is an Awareness-based shared community space where Shift happens.  The party starts with an after work reception followed by an informal presentation of Samsara House 2023’s purpose, then some theory and practice through a fun group simulation in a circle setting.  Don’t miss this party! 
The Holacratic Experience Top 12:
- Harnesses the consciousness of every single person
- Is applied authentic communications and mindfulness practice 
- Changes the relationship to power ~ now, everyone has the power to voice a tensions
- Is a tension driven system, letting reality pull issues through and change the system
- Gives everyone a voice, in a rapid, purpose-driven process
- Makes a group of people smarter through collective intelligence
- Senses and responds to the present moment versus trying to plan and predict the future
- Shifts from a hierarchy of people to a holarchy of people
- Distributes leadership ~ there is no longer someone at the top or above you, It’s you man !
- Tensions are seen as productive and useful for driving things forward 
- No one decides the structure; instead a structure emerges by processing tensions
- It’s not just another way of structure, it’s a leap to a whole new way of being
* Samsara House 2023’s strategy is to exemplify a
gift-economy over the current market economy, one that values giving over having.  While all events cost at least one dollar to cover our utilities, any additional contribution you make will go towards periodically giving half back to a socially responsible organization or cause in the community in need that you also help identify.  Going together as a river, we build a thriving community of communities.  Samsara House 2023 was founded by Cullen Kowalski at his DC row house in Bloomingdale, Washington, D.C. and is dynamically governed by Holacracy.
