One Community: Saving the earth - reduce, reuse, recycle

One Community’s Path to Consensus

One Community is a long ways along the path to full consensus decision making and committed to a 100% consensus trained team and the 90-day consensus phase-in process outlined on the Consensus page. We are, however, waiting until we are on the property to phase in full consensus. The reasons for this is because experience has demonstrated the following three essential keys:

  • Every person in a consensus process needs training in the consensus process
  • Everyone in a consensus process needs full energy and time commitment for the entire process
  • Everyone needs to be together in person; phones, forums and emails are not effective tools for consensus

With each of the above in mind, the way we are operating right now is that team members decide and work together to collaborate on as many of the One Community projects as possible (see the Weekly Progress Blog for everything we are working on). To assist with this, we are either working on projects individually or organized into Project Teams that are open to any Pioneer with an interest in a project or in multiple projects. Pioneers who are most knowledgeable about particular projects and how the projects fit within the larger picture of One Community are chosen and organized by Jae, who oversees One Community’s creation and implementation as a whole.

We maintain the following teams and processes organized for effective organization and progress:

● Project Teams: The teams organized around specific areas of One Community’s development
Welcome Teams: The teams organized around sharing the larger One Community experience
Feedback Format: Helping each other grow and improve is facilitated by the use of this format
Monthly Reviews: Every month a two-way review is organized between two members of the team
Weekly Team Calls: Every week we host a team call to:

  • Share weekly announcements
  • Report on what each individual did during the prior week
  • Plan what each of us will accomplish during the following week
  • Discuss as a group any new issues of importance
  • Enjoy a little group social time and sharing for those that desire to stay after the formal call


consensus governing, conscious governing, enlightened governing, consensus for groups, achieving consensus, operating consensusOne Community is dedicated to creating and demonstrating a new paradigm of conscious collaboration, co-creation, and leadership for The Highest Good of All. To accomplish this we are committed to a culture that embraces feedback, has been trained in mindful communication and screened through the consensus process, and is ready to launch the first large-scale consensus-based community of this kind. All the above mentioned tools, techniques, and organized processes for effective self-governance and cooperative decision making, combined with a commitment to identifying and representing what we feel is for The Highest Good of All, are the foundations as we continue to move towards our model for full consensus governing with groups of 200+ and beyond.
