Cunnamulla residents today took the first steps in identifying core community values to create a community owned vision and blueprint for the future.

The meeting follows initial roundtable discussions in March where the Cunnamulla Aboriginal Corporation for Health (CACH), Paroo Shire Council, South West Hospital and Health Service (HHS), Murweh Shire Council and Central and Western Areas Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Health (CWAATSICH) were given a mandate to progress strategies to improve social and health outcomes for the communities.

image001Annalise Jennings from Dynamic Exchange was brought in to facilitate the meeting based on her wealth of experience in helping communities drive positive change.

“‘Whole of Community Change’ is a philosophy of ownership and self- determination,” she said.

“It’s about the push for change coming from the community who live and work here, rather than being imposed by policy makers from afar.”

Ms Jennings’ work in Cape York has seen the Napranum community shift from welfare dependency to wealth creation.

“In Napranum within two years there was a 60 per cent increase in employment and a 40 per cent increase in community owned infrastructure.”

Ms Jennings said it is all about shifting the conversation from discussing problems to creating possibilities.

“Our communities are not a problem to be solved.”

“They are full of opportunity and potential that we need to collectively recognise and support.”

“Creating a connected community is about respecting our differences and finding our common goals and values.

aj2Ms Jennings said the ‘Whole of Community Change’ framework opens the door for the community to create a vision and to be supported in making it a reality by service providers and policy makers.”

Napranum Aboriginal Community (Queensland, Australia)

napooficialsiteNapranum (meaning meeting place of the people) was the site of Weipa Presbyterian Mission from 1932 to 1965. Before 1932, the original Weipa Mission was situated near Spring Creek on the upper northern reaches of the Embley River. On 1 February 1966, the church handed over control to the Queensland Government and the mission became known as Weipa South settlement. During the late 1960s the name Napranum was increasingly used by the community.

At least twelve traditional owner groups occupied the surrounding lands, however there are families living at Napranum today whose links extend to Mapoon and Weipa from the missionary period.

Lesli Moore Dahlke

lesliMD1UONELesli Moore Dahlke is a Southern Californian native. Being a native is a rarity for most “Californians,” who frequently come from other places in the country. But, proudly, she was born and raised in the bright beautiful Golden State. Lesli describes herself as a lucky child of the 50’s greatly loved by her parents. It was a time of innocence, a time when life was as gentle as a warm breeze. It was a time of growing up during the halcyon days. She was raised in the San Fernando Valley, one of the original vast booming post-World War II suburbs of Los Angeles. Lesli grew up in the shadows of tinsel-town’s glamour, its glitter and the glory days of Hollywood. Her father, Del Moore, was a noted and successful television and movie actor. She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from California State University, Northridge. Her degree was as a practitioner of Television and Film Production. Lesli’s secondary emphasis was on the written word of journalism. As her career began, she pursued a successful career in Television Media Production. Her credits include commercial film production, and numerous areas of television production, including producing live sports programming. Lesli was the Supervising Associate Producer for the award-winning documentary, “The Eisenhower Years,” for The Discovery Channel, as well as for PBS Network programming. She also supervised the production of PBS Telecourses, the front-runner to today’s on-line universities. Lesli headed the production staff that produced the first cable series for the Playboy Channel and various other ventures. She was a long time writer to the former Salem-News.com on-line newspaper as an Environmental Contributor. Lesli now is a contributing writer for The City of Hope and is completing her second book, Every Day Is a Gift. Although her industry experiences were vast, challenging, and never routine, the most personal challenging experiences were yet to come.

The Best Is Yet To Come!

Her life and story is explored and shared in the profound book The Best Is Yet To Come (published 2012) “I never miss a moment of this beautiful life. I am always filling my heart with the vivid colors, textures, and glorious memories, that make up the unique tapestry of this wonderful journey we call life!”

David William Gibbons

David William Gibbons is a transitional media strategist (Culture, Social, Human Performance and Democracy) and best known for the creation of deep ethereal dialogue, broadcast widely across the transitory and fast evolving technologies existing at the beginning of the 21st Century. His work in the humanities began at a fundamental level with the 14 days journeys across America and the United Kingdom in 2004 and 2005. During this period he found an emerging and transformational personal gift of human connection, in concert with the creation of profound photography and film. Later, at a revolutionary changing point in his life, an understanding developed in pairing historical context with human connection dynamics. This was defined and developed during 2009, through the personal exploration and extensive research of deep discussion and narrative in audio and video mediums. This period also marked a time of introspection and intense hardships through which he traveled, until such time as the platform upon which his material resides found its mark. The programming and rich dialogue have since developed and advanced to where an extensive and powerful legacy now exists. Today, these dialogues continue to expand based upon the transformation of a challenged planet. Distinguished individuals and groups from all over the world have participated in deep conversations, the latter of which are charted through international panels on the well respected Crossing over the Bridge series. The most notable of these include the late Dr. Brian O’Leary Astronaut and Author, with whom he recorded over 28 hours of dialogue and engaged in hundred’s of hours of personal conversations outside of the regular broadcasting schedule. A close friendship and mutual respect developed between the two individuals heavily reflected and resonating in the work that they created together. Dr. Brian O’Leary passed in July 2011. It is considered in many circles, that the material created between the two individuals represents the greatest body of conversations currently known to be in existence during Dr. O’Leary’s life. His work continues with an underscore of quiet discernment, deliberating upon wide spread issues of which free energy and evolving conscious human behavior define the backbone of a core and determined mission. Through an open and ever deepening form of dialogue, the views of people and realities continue to build upon his long believed view that this current time reflects this “the generation of all generations.”

He studied philosophy and religion at Hampshire College, and educational neuroscience, human development, and the philosophy of education at Harvard University. Stein was a co-founder of Lectica, Inc., a non-profit dedicated to the research-based justice-oriented reform of large-scale standardized testing in K-12, higher-education, and business. He has been published in a wide range of outlets including American Psychologist, New Ideas in Psychology, Mind, Brain, and Education, Integral Review, and the Journal of Philosophy of Education.

Current Projects

Stein is currently working on four book projects:

Tipping the scales: social justice and educational measurement

This is an extension of his dissertation: Stein, Z. (2014). Tipping the scales: social justice and educational measurement. (doctoral dissertation). Harvard University Graduate School of Education. Cambridge, MA.

He is in talks with Harvard University Press and Routledge about publishing it as a book.

Recreating humanity: a thought experiment in the philosophy of education

The MetaIntegral Foundation has provided some support for this project, which will creatively transform some 200 pages of previously published material into a book on the philosophy of education and a critique of educational technology.

Schooling in Late-Capitalist America (with Hans Despain)

Hans Despain and Stein address issues in contemporary education from the perspective of Dialectal Critical Realism and Integral Theory.

Evolutionary love: towards an new image of humanity (with Marc Gafni)

Working with Rabbi Marc Gafni, they address philosophical issues in evolutionary theory and advance an emancipatory metatheory of evolution, best described as acosmic humanism. This is a new image of humanity’s place in the universe and an ontology of the concrete singular individual, or the Unique Self. This book is being written with the Support of the Center for Integral Wisdom.
