“Ever more advanced forms of complexity depend on cooperation, collaboration and working together” says Brian Swimme about this 6th power in his DVD series, Powers of the Universe, that we have presented over these past few years. During this crucial time, many of us are yearning for suggestions about doing just that in order to be more in alignment with the greater powers that exist in our universe. “Positive synergy is a mutually-enhancing relationship.” (Swimme). Let us come together to view, to learn and to grow in SYNERGY.
Margie Gillis lives by the sea on Cape Breton Island. She grew up in a small coal mining town, a “company town” as they are known. Coal influenced her life – as did the sea. Margie has a BEd from Mt Saint Vincent University in Halifax and an MA in Environmental Studies from York University, Toronto. Her early labor was in church ministry but later, she was drawn to community development work after seeing the effects of the neo-liberal economic agenda on small rural communities in Eastern Canada in the 1980’s and 90’s. She was very active in the potential to re-invent local communities after severe economic decline using what Otto Scharmer refers to as “architectures of connection”, that is, the establishment of community-based initiatives to gather folks in their efforts to re-think and re-new their communities. She was the Director of the Carmel Centre project in New Waterford incubating small businesses, encouraging community leadership, and active in efforts to establish a medical centre focusing on community issues of health and wellness.
