February 7, 2019 Today, all over the world, you see rising patterns of partisanship and nationalism. Even if they don’t affect you today, these trends may transform your future. HSD helps you see and respond to patterns of politics in novel and useful ways. Our models and methods generate patterns of engagement and abundance to help you connect and thrive in spite of forces that seek to divide and conquer. Historically, humans have experienced periods when authoritarian power was on the rise, marginalizing or even eliminating opposing or dissident voices. One way these leaders influenced others was to create a sense of tension. Autocrats use stories and innuendo to make their followers believe there are “others” plotting to take away their assets, their power, or their privilege. These leaders build walls—literally and figuratively—that divide, so they can conquer. They use propaganda to spread a narrative of impending doom and fear. In this Live Virtual Workshop, Glenda Eoyang talks about using Adaptive Action to help you step into your next wise action in the face of the propaganda of authoritarianism in your neighborhood, around your community, and across your nation.

My 65 th birthday isn’t the only reason I’m thinking about end of life. I’m hearing stories of death and dying from many people: Family, friends, friends of family, and families of friends. We also mark the passing of a generation that lived with the Holocaust, WWII, and the birth of TV and rock and roll. We experience the ultimate outcomes of the opioid industry, big oil, and the gun lobby, either in person or through the media. It would seem that death is all around us.

When my younger daughter was about 8 or 9, I remember watching her play with her friends in the park across the street. Her whole focus was on getting everyone involved in whatever game the group was playing, pointing out where they could get into the action, assigning roles, encouraging those who were more shy, and backing up those who were less confident.

Collaborate to Create Community
What can we say to future generations about the patterns of generativity, equity, and inclusion we seek today? How would we speak with them about who we are together? How will we help them understand the power of the work we recognize as we stand in the world at the end of 2018? Recently I received this powerful essay from one of our HSD Professional Associates. She wrote it to share with colleagues in an organization-wide equity and diversity event, and then was generous enough to share it with us. I asked permission and she has, again, graciously granted permission for me to share it here, in its entirety. With deep gratitude to her, I offer this for your reading. –Royce Holladay
