Dear GenDAO community.
I felt to write this post about feelings.
I spent the last weekend in the largest conscious tech summit in the world in the Red Sea in Egypt. People from all over the globe, from billionaires to small African startups were together to talk about conscious and socially impactful projects. I believe we could consider ourselves in that category. We are experimenting a different way of organizing.
Perhaps the most used word in the workshops and presentations was vulnerability. The act of radical honesty, and the potential this posture has to change our minds, relationships and environment. It is also the core of NVC (non-violent-communication).
I invite you to access your feelings about our choices in this community and to share here if you feel called to. - Can we solve some of our frictions and get to more creative solutions if we allow ourselves to express in a vulnerable way? - Would this open space for more synergy and collaboration? - Can we have more constructive feedbacks and support each others actions?
I will start, as I can only speak for myself.
I feel so much being part of Genesis everyday for the last year. I feel grateful for the immeasurable learning experiences I have. I feel like I’m in a mirror room. The types of behavior that trigger me, usually have something to teach me about my own behavior. I feel unheard sometimes. I wish I knew how to express better and louder and with more confidence some of my ideas. At the same time, I like to observe. I feel excitement and curiosity about the people that come here. I feel underrepresented. I would like to see more woman, LGBTQ and black communities here. I feel afraid we are excluding important perspectives in the grounding stage. I feel part of a movement that wants to act towards a more egalitarian world. I feel called by freedom and self sovereignty, that’s why I’m here. I think I do a good job at collaborating, and I see others doing it as well, I feel proud of that. I like to hear constructive feedback about my blind spots. I feel privileged to have the chance to improve personally and professionally with all of you, especially the ones I connect with more often.
Thanks for your attention and openness. Please let me know if you don’t feel free to express yourself in this community.
