Wise Democracy Events

We have two events coming up in June -
one just for subscribers and one for anyone and everyone....

(and check out our newly organized activities page where you will find these and future events, as well as previous newsletters and things to do and get involved with...)



On June 7th at 10am Pacific Time we will be piloting a WD-PL site “open house” for anyone who wants to attend.  During this 90 minute teleconference call, founder Tom Atlee will guide us through the entire wise democracy pattern language (WD-PL) website for an hour, providing clarifying commentary along the way.  After that he’ll take 20-30 minutes to address any questions participants may have.  

If there are a dozen people, it will be an intimate affair.  If there are 30-100 or more, we’ll have participants write their questions in the Zoom chat box and Tom will address themes he sees among them.

If you are interested, register now at Eventbrite and we’ll send you access instructions both the day before and an hour before the event.  

This is THE free event to invite all your friends to.  For newcomers, it will be a great introduction to the wise democracy pattern language.  For people already familiar with the WD-PL - or who are overwhelmed by its complexity and size - this will be a great way to learn more about its deeper meaning and many resources (and where to find them all on the website!).

The event will be hosted as a Zoom conference call. You can download the free software for this at

If you are on Facebook, do let us know you are coming on our event page for this call.


If you subscribe to this newsletter and have explored the wise democracy pattern language site, we invite you to join us for the next free teleconference gathering with Tom Atlee, where you will learn more about the wise democracy pattern language and meet other fascinating folks who are engaging with it.

This two hour Zoom call will start on Tuesday June 13th at 10am Pacific Time.  

In a brief check-in we’ll invite you to share 

  • your name and where you live, 
  • a question that is important to you and 
  • one of the wise democracy patterns that is especially important in your work or life. 

(Whether or not you plan to join us, we invite you to take a few moments now to think of a question and a pattern that have heart and meaning to you?  Try it out...)

After our intro check-ins, Tom will share what led him to articulate some of the patterns in the Culture: Collaboration category.  Along the way he’ll respond to our questions and comments about what he’s sharing. We can also explore other patterns that might fit in that category.

For the last 20-30 minutes of the call, we'd like to hear from you what kind of community full of interesting, engaged people you'd like to see coming together around the wise democracy pattern language.  What would they (and you) be doing?  What other groups have you been part of that really engaged you? What kind of activities and opportunities have such groups offered?  What do you think would engage people together to explore, use, and evolve this pattern language?

This special call will be limited to 16 newsletter subscribers who have spent at least 1 hour exploring the WD-PL website. If you haven't taken at least an hour to explore the site, you might enjoy participating in the June 7 event described to the left, which will give you a fascinating hour-long experience that will qualify you for this call. 

Reserve your spot now for the June 13th event at Eventbrite. (If you are late, make a reservation anyway. We'll put you on a waiting list. If enough interested people want to participate, we'll organize a second call.) 

Instructions for attending will be emailed to you both the day before and an hour before start time. If you haven’t participated in a Zoom call previously, you may wish to download the free software beforehand.

The call will be facilitated by Andy Paice, a wise democracy enthusiast from London, UK. After the call is formally concluded, Tom and Andy will remain online for a while to explore people's experience of the call, any thoughts for improving it, and whatever else you’d like to talk about.

You can always contact us through or the comment section at the bottom of every page of the Wise Democracy Project website.
