A Facilitator Meeting at the Church of the Assumption, 20 East Avenue, Fairport, NY.  Our facilitators met for prayer, sharing and a hierarchy-hangar and network-yarn exercise.

This hieratchy-hangar model shows how someone on the top has all the power and control and distributes the information,  policies  and  ideas to the people below for them to pass on in the same manner while the one or ones near the bottom have little or no voice; a top down process.

In the network-yarn exercise below people shared yarn-ideas back and forth across the circle creating a weaving of sorts. As we looked at it some shared thoughts like what they saw: stars, interconnections, network, loose ends, more to connect with, groups to add, and spaces. The process seems to be organic.
