About Relations tab...

The Relations tabs contains two critical features that serve to connect the Person to Social-Entities they are associated with and/or Person to Communities-of-Place and/or Person to Communities-of-Practice they are participating in.

These are all generative fields, in that a new entry can prompt the creation of a new Social-Entity or Ecosystem page respectively, using red links.

About Practice tab...

The Practice tab enables Persons to display a more detailed profile about the kind of systems change they work towards in the world. It allows individual RKC participants who are aspiring or existing regenerative practitioners, to describe the regenerative dimension of their practice.

RKC is, above all, a developmental space and acknowledges that we are all a work-in-progress--microcosms of the systems we desire to evolve.

RKC welcomes all change-makers aspiring to regenerate themselves, their thinking and practice in order that we may collectively bring about truly transformative ecosocial change.

Practitioner Status:   Everyone in the field of regenerative practice is on a pathway-- a trajectory of co-learning... Where are you roughly on this pathway?
Degree of Regenerative:   To what degree have you been able to viably integrate regenerative work into your practice?
Describe Regenerative:   This word means many different things to many different folks. What does regenerative mean to you?
Geographic Reach:   How would you identify the "scale" of spaces you work in?
A village, town, neighborhood, rural area, urban centre, suburb, etc., typically on a human scale.
Some larger continuous geographic area, with a clear sense of ecological and/or cultural idInitiative, that encompasses multiple localities.
Via regional, national, international and/or transnational network(s), movement(s), communities of practice.
Online only.
Area(s) of Work:
Material phenomena: living systems, built environments, tools and technology.
Subjective phenomena: consciousness, spirituality, self-awareness, inner transition, personal development and resilience.
Collective structures and processes: culture, ethics, communication, social technologies, decision-making, collaboration, conflict, economic relationships.
Expression of Purpose:   Ha! Good luck with this one... (just kidding). Give it a go, please let us know if something essential for you is missing.
Stakeholder Type(s):   Identify what types of stakeholders you work with... once again if something is missing, please let us know.
Description of Practice:   Tell us what is unique about your regenerative practice...

About Patterns tab...

The Patterns tab allows for the compilation of a personal playlist of frequently-used Patterns--practices, processes, frameworks, tools, capacities, livelihoods and any other elements of transformative action.

There are four types of Pattern:

  • Design patterns: basic, singular patterns that can stand on their own;
  • Guiding patterns: paradigm-related patterns, that can create an identifying context for--that is, serve to group--design patterns;
  • Process patterns: an assemblage of multiple patters, that can be applied randomly or sequentially to form an intervention (often referred to as a pattern language);
  • Meta patterns: systemic level patterns, that enable cross-over between different Communities of Practice and their Patterns.

Note: Currently, there is only one Pattern entity in RKC, these distinctions will be built into this entity, until such time it becomes necessary to individuate.

Pattern is a generative field, in that a new entry can prompt the creation of a new Pattern page, using a red link.

Pattern can be nested, which means it can be connected to other patterns via multiple levels of organization. By using the Parent field, any Pattern can be connected to the next higher-order Pattern it belongs to.

About Interventions tab...

The Interventions tab allows for the compilation of a personal playlist of frequently-used Interventions--unique instances of potentially transformative actions.

Interventions derived from Patterns, stand a better chance to be transformative. The aim is for our Interventions to be well-conceived, context-specific and consciously applied.

Intervention is a generative field, in that a new entry can prompt the creation of a new Intervention page, using a red link.

About Essence tab...

The Essence tab allows for anyone in RKC (including oneself) to comment on what makes you unique along three different dimensions:
  • Aliveness: What energizes this being that really makes it come alive, beyond the functional of everyday existence.
  • Offering: The unique value a being 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 being that it is continually striving to manifest into existence.

Over time, this feature can offer deeper insights to what each individual brings to this co-creative space...
