“Time to look with clear, clean and unfiltered eyes, ears, hands and heart, and build a new vision with n-dimensions, and n-constituencies, and n-voices, and n-contributions, and n-considerations, and n-values, and n-awarenesses, and n-minds; and then … begin to see and feel and know what is to be done, how to do it, and how to move as one.”

VillageLab works with individuals and groups to design and implement effective patterns for community collaboration and coherence. Coherence is key – it is a state of alignment, connectivity, and generative flow – the essence of a healthy and dynamic social organism. It is not easy to achieve but when we do the “community glue” is palpable!
We’re here to guide each other to compassionate understanding and confident contribution. As consultants, we work to empower community members to take the lead and establish beneficial patterns, with room to evolve.
Our approach emphasizes the magic of conscientious co-creation and expanding possibilities over the burden of rigid rules and elaborate processes. We go to work on a deep level to help craft truly thrivable cultures, and the individual capacities to nurture collective wealth, wisdom, and wellness.
Our process and facilitation services include:
- Meeting Design, Circle Process, Group Coherence Inquiry
- Generative Conversation, Appreciative Inquiry
- Play & Exercises for Deepening & Co-sensing
- Conflict Resolution – Non-Violet Communication, Compassionate Listening
- Decision-Making Facilitation – Consensus, Sociocracy, Holocracy, Dynamic Governance
