Call in to speak with the host
The Voice of Change welcomes Darrell Moneyhon to the program to share his vision on Creating Conscious Consensus. Darrell is a retired prison counselor. His group facilitation experiences in prison, his religious experiences, and his overall life experiences inspired a vision of an optimal community which focuses on fully actualizing human potential. After 20-plus years the vision became a book named Allsville Emerging: Creating and Experiencing a New Culture Together, www.allsvilleemerging.com
In the book ALLSVILLE EMERGING the fictional town of Allsville achieves "one community under God," without resorting to becoming a theocracy— without violating the separation of church and state. Allsville does this by getting its citizens to consent upon spiritual principles in common with all faith traditions and secular expressions of spirituality. During Allsville's fictional consensus-making process, 5 spiritual principles emerged: Whole-to-part, Responsible Creating, Interconnectedness, Appreciation, and Lightness.
Allsville's five spiritual principles are compared to consensus points reached in real life, from the Snowmass Intereligious conferences of 1984 and 1986.
However, according to Darrell Moneyhon, "spiritual consensus" means much more than mere "religious tolerance," and even more than agreeing on certain common denominators of spiritual thought. True spiritual consensus can only be claimed when there is a WORKABLE list (not too big or complicated) of things that are practiced in such a way that they become indelibly marked in the CULTURE of the people endorsing those principles. Tune in for a remarkable proram with Darrell Moneyhon.
It's good to talk.
