Thanks to School of Commoning for pointing me to this link:
A movement of self-authorship and self-organization
It was my long-time mentor Jean Robertson who introduced me to the phrase ‘self-authoring people in self-organizing communities’. That was probably 4 years ago, at least. I’ve learned a lot more about what she meant by that now, and more importantly, I’ve been seeing that vision come to life.
The phrase points at two fundamental aspects of transformation underway within society. One is the transformation of the self. The other is the transformation of the group. Both are equally important, and are symbiotic with the other.
