What is a CommPractice profile

Communities of Practice entity pages are used to profile translocal constellations of potentially-transformative activity focused on one field of practice.

These entities can be nested, in that by identifying a Parent Community of Practice, then Sibling and Offspring, will be automatically associated and accessible.

(These pages are generated from the Relations established from within Person or Initiative pages. Also, they can be established by identifying a non-existing Community of Practice as a Parent. If existing, the link will be blue, if not yet existing, the link is red, and invites the page curator to create the page in question. )

The entity structure below is very similar to the Community of Place, the same for all three types, with one exception: Communities of Practice are where Patterns are curated.

The Main section contains:

  • a few required fields, such as a brief description, parent/sibling/offspring and page curator(s);
  • a summary of key relations are provided here;
  • optionally, one has the ability to display relevant images, give a full name, and longer description;

Other tabs contain:

  • Patterns being curated;
  • narratives about this entity,
  • and essence entries for this Community of Practice from any RKC participant.
These pages interact in generative ways with Entity pages--they can be referenced from an Entity page, if existing, the link will be blue, if new, the link is red, and invites the page curator to create the page in question.

The Regenerative Development School describes itself as a school of will, making reference to a living systems frameworks, in particular function-being-will, which are at the core if its technology. The regenerative paradigm, based on living systems thinking, is at the heart of its practice. And, the 7 First Principles, are foundational to is its developmental focus.


Although a recent development over the last few decades, it's lineage has roots that go much deeper. One of the strongest roots, perhaps the taproot, is esoteric teachings of the Fourth Way developed by George Gurdjieff and his adherents. The The Institute for Developmental Processes with founder Charlie Krone in the early 1980's formed some of the early learning circles.

Work in the world

From here, two main expressions emerged: One, the work of Regenesis Group in 1995, and subsequently Regenesis Institute for Regenerative Practice, whose focus was on regenerative work in communities. The other the work Carol Sanford, with the Change Agent Development (CAD)/SEED Communities program that started some 5 years later, with its focus on Personal/Professional/Business development.

About Essence Tab...

The Essence tab allows for anyone in RKC to comment on what makes this Community of Practice unique along three dimensions:
  • Aliveness: What energizes a Community of Practice that really makes it come alive, beyond the functional of everyday existence.
  • Offering: The unique value a Community of Practice offers in order to bring a higher-order of viability and vitality to, or evolve a particular system they are working to transform (this is context specific).
  • Potential: A tendency in a Community of Practice that it is continually striving to manifest into existence.
Over time, this feature can offer deeper insights to what each collective as a whole brings to this co-creative space.
