Talking With Our Elders: Today with David O'Fallon
48:09

Tenneson and I spend some time with one of our elders, David O'Fallon. He shares his thoughts on views on how things are and what is needed in these times.

David O’Fallon PhD

David’s life themes are education and education reform,  arts and cultural work,  creating community and imagining and creating the future. He has followed these themes through senior positions at the National Endowment for the Arts’s, the John F Kennedy Center and the University of Minnesota. He has led three state agencies in Minnesota as president or CEO; The Perpich Center for Arts Education, MacPhail Center for Music and recently the Minnesota Humanities Center. He has consulted widely, nationally and internationally,  with  small and large organizations on these themes. 

This is a moment of fundamental change in this nation and the world. Old narratives and the organizations they formed are failing; some are becoming destructive  as they fall. David is committed to working with organizations to create the new relationships and new narratives needed to connect us all, to courageously imagine and create a thriving, sustainable future. To work with those who are creating the new organisms (rather than organizations) needed to thrive and sustain and create.  He is passionate and practical about working with people and organizations who want to make this transition and to walk into the future.

His PhD is in  Theatre and Community and he is proud to be one of the founders of  In the Heart of the Beast Theatre in Minneapolis.

 

He lives in Minneapolis,MN,USA

Staying In The Journey
21:51

One of the critical aspects of Fire & Water is staying in the journey through the 16 months. It takes effort and deliberateness to do so, for participants to stay attentive to what unfolds. Quanita and I reflect on a few aspects of staying in -- the spaces in between, critical connections to maintain and to grow, staying in vs just passing time, ritualizing, and the covenant we hold when departure is part of the plan. Enjoy. (22 minutes)

Independence?
29:45

In this episode (30 minutes), Quanita and Tenneson explore the possibility that there be no such thing as independence. Which is, of course, a conversation about connection. We explore scarcity as a pattern in codependence. We explore abundance as a pattern in interdependence. And we wonder about the ways that unresolved wound and trauma foster a coping, shadow side of what so many reference as independence. Enjoy the listen. We hope it adds a little wisdom and soulfulness.
