Walk Out Walk On

Finding One Another

As a book, Walk Out Walk On offers a starting point for illuminating new frames and perspectives about change. But the real work of change happens when Walk Outs everywhere connect and self-organize both virtually and face-to-face. We know that the future we are walking on to will not be created by individual hero-leaders. We also know that we do not have the answers about how to build this future. Experimentation, the collaboration of many minds and talents, and openness to new ways of thinking are essential at this time.

When we share our stories, fears, endeavors and insights, our learning is enriched. We’ve created this Community space as a way for Walk Outs to find and support one another, learn together and perhaps collaborate in creating something new. Here you can read the stories of other Walk Outs Who Walk On in the Community Blog, offer your own in the Share Your Story section or read blogs by members of the Walk Out Walk On community below. You can also find out about upcoming Tweet Chats or explore the #wowochat archives. Finally, we have developed the “Find One Another” interactive map for Walk Outs everywhere to become more visible to one another and so that they can connect around the interest areas that matter most to them. View the map. Add yourself to the map.

We invite you to join us in these experiments and to send us your ideas for collaboration, inspiration and feedback on the Walk Out Walk On blog, Facebook page and via #walkoutwalkon on Twitter.

Friend and walk out Sarah Zoutewelle-Morris has been sharing with us stories from her community in Warfhuizen, Holland for the past several months. In her last post, Walking (on) the Talk she talked about her work with a neighborhood organization looking to shift a dangerous local traffic situation. She wrote about the challenges of showing up as leader-as-host vs. leader-as-hero in the meetings. Here’s an update from Sarah about what’s been happening.

The resettling of my bones and heart

Posted On November 19, 2013

Reflections from Kailea Frederick on our weeklong Walk Out Walk On workshop at the International Youth Initiative Program (YIP). The piece was originally posted on Kailea’s blog, harnessyourbreath.com.

This was a much anticipated workshop for many of my fellow Yippies, although I had never previously heard of Walk Out Walk On. We had just emerged from the exhaustion of our two week Permaculture Course, and I was feeling like my purpose of being here had been swallowed whole. So with a half day of rest between courses we arrived Monday morning into what would unfold for me the resettling of my bones and heart.

My name is Haikaa, I am a multicultural singer-songwriter and author and I am absolutely passionate about empowering people. So many of the problems in our world that bother me either arise from or feed on disempowerment. As an artist, my music centers around themes such as self-acceptance, assertiveness, love and surrender.

I am a cleaner

Author: Tolu Ilesanmi

This is a piece reposted from our friends at Organization Unbound by Tolu Ilesanmi. We thought that it was such a great example of walking out of limiting beliefs that we would share it with the Walk Out Walk On community. The post is an update on Tolu’s social/spiritual enterprise Zenith Cleaners. You can learn more about the history and vision of the company by reading his earlier post on Organization Unbound, Cleaning for a change.

Zenith Cleaners continues to evolve. Very exciting times. We are taking further the concept of Cleaning as Practice and building our future on it. In the process, we came up with this definition of cleaning, which is in itself cleansing: Cleaning is the process of removing dirt from any space, surface, object or subject thereby exposing beauty, potential, truth and sacredness.
