Announcing this group's work publicly?

JB Jeff Brown Public Seen by 290

Recently, someone in the CNVC Certified Trainers email group asked me to propose something for the Virtual Home as described in the New Future Plan. I'd like to share the existence of this group and provide a summary and update of some key activities. Does anyone object if I do that? Any requests related to what I share, or how I share it? For example, do you prefer that I don't mention certain projects because they are too early in development for you to feel comfortable it is publicly known? Is there anything you suggest I highlight? Thanks!

Bonjour Jeff : )
I'd prefer we'd go a bit further in our PreVH Weave Handbook before. In particular we haven't set up our restorative system yet.


Jeff Brown Tue 19 Jun 2018 8:40AM

Bonjour! For clarity, do you prefer that I wait before sharing specific content that this group has developed, or that I not even mention the existence of this group at all until we've gotten a bit further?


Dieudonné Tue 19 Jun 2018 9:33AM

Actually I'd prefer to hear the other weave members on the subject first, because I wasn't present at the last meeting, and I haven't had their point of view on it.


James Green Tue 19 Jun 2018 10:04AM

I am working on a proposal for our restorative system.


Elkie Tue 19 Jun 2018 8:38AM

I would love that to happen Jeff, and am curious if the group is also content

I'm completely comfortable with you sharing, @jwbrown518 . Our weekly meetings, minutes, and Loomio are open to the public, so I'm happy with anyone summarizing and sharing any of this. I'd like any publicity to emphasize that this is the pre virtual home, with which to learn lessons about what works and doesn't work, and one should not rely on the current virtual home to stay where it is or how it is.


Julie Mon 25 Jun 2018 8:41AM

I'm also happy for any sharing to happen.



Uma Sun 8 Jul 2018 9:48PM

@jwbrown518 - I'm glad you're connected here and are willing to share info with the CT community. ... Here is a blurb that will be included in the forthcoming CNVC/NVC-O Newsletter... it will ostensibly be shared with the CNVC/NVC-O Community and a link to it circulated widely. The links don't show up below, but it includes link to the Community Group on the previritual home, link to this loomio group, and link to feedback page on website, etc.

It may be sent out any time now.. and i'm trusting that there's not inaccurate info in teh blurb below. please contact me if there is anything In correct...@brentbarker @julielawrence @dieudonne @bobw [and i'm not sure who else might be a regular member?] ...

more to come re: future newsletters and how to have a clearer info loop about what goes in, when and how, etc. ...

NEWS: CNVC/NVC-O website launched!

The Pre-Virtual Home (PVH) implementation support weave has launched an interim CNVC/NVC-O website at www.nvc-global.net. The website is an experimental space for the CNVC/NVC-O Community and the CNVC/NVC-O Organisation to discover what they want in a virtual home. A first feature is a Community Member group 'wall' or 'forum'. What do you want to say to others in CNVC/NVC-O Community?

PVH invites anyone who would like to shape the development of the Pre-Virtual Home to follow its work and make comments in its Loomio forum or via the website.

REQUEST: Please also add "nvc-global.net" and "cnvc.org" to your email accounts so that emails from the organisation get to your Inbox

if i could get a quick thumbs up from at least one PVH group member that there is nothing INACCURATE in the blurb, i will feel better about sending sooner than later.

The only restriction I have is for us to have agreed on a restorative system, before inviting others more widely.
We have started something here :
* https://nvc.miraheze.org/wiki/PreVH_Restorative_System

but haven't talked about it yet in our zoom meetings.
I see it as important for our weave to be more robust and resilient when entering in turbulence areas ; )


Julie Mon 9 Jul 2018 9:31AM

Looks good to me. Just one question, though. You said:

REQUEST: Please also add "nvc-global.net" and "cnvc.org" to your email accounts so that emails from the organisation get to your Inbox

Is that do-able? To add a whole domain? I thought you could only add specific email addresses, eg admin@nvc-global.net ... ?

Lovely to see you this morning :)



Uma Wed 11 Jul 2018 3:26PM

Dieudonne i'm a little unclear about what you refer to as a restriction. Do you mean that you would like NOT to include the following text?
"PVH invites anyone who would like to shape the development of the Pre-Virtual Home to follow its work and make comments in its Loomio forum or via the website."


James Green Wed 11 Jul 2018 4:15PM

Dieudonné, and others, I just want you to know that I am still researching information and feedback on the issues of instituting restorative systems online. I'm not saying wait or don't wait regarding this specific decision, I just want you to know that I am moving as quickly as possible to get relevant, valuable and usable information and connections to contribute towards building an appropriate restorative system for this context.


Dieudonné Thu 12 Jul 2018 2:37PM

@uma @jamesgreen thank you both for taking care of my worry. I don't say I don't want to include the mentioned text. I just want to advise us we haven't gone through the process of choosing our RS in this weave, so inviting new contributors might increase our vulnerability concerning potential conflicts.


Uma Sat 14 Jul 2018 7:16PM

yes this makes sense to me. so it sounds clear PVH is not yet at a moment of seeking Contributors to join the group, as it is exploring a Conflict Transformations for itself? Has the group looked at the 'standard' Conflict Transformation system -- maybe it's 'good enough' for now, if there are clear roles for Contributors to take on..?
