Description We meet on an irregular basis to talk about the state of our world, how we feel about it, and what we can do to help create a healthy world. We mostly function as a post-Ishmael support group in that we help each other try to apply these values to our lives and give each other a forum where we can feel at-home since we feel alienated from the larger culture, most of our family, and our coworkers. Some of us distribute pamphlets of speeches by Daniel Quinn. John Kurmann and Stan Chappell have talked with groups about these ideas, and John has been a guest on a local radio show. We all spread the ideas one way or another, most clearly by thinking and acting differently ourselves.

The subjects cover a wide range, but mostly center on the problems of civilization, how to relieve them temporarily and possibly solve them in the long run. If you would like to meet with us, look in our e-group for meeting times & places, post a message to let us know you're coming, and we'll see you there. Sometimes we work in activities like identifying wild edibles, hiking or kayaking during our discussions. If Ishmael has awakened you to the insanity of civilization and left you feeling isolated, here are some like-minded people to talk with.

We are looking for people who wish to discuss the works of Quinn, but are also looking for those who wish to tribalize and get moving on changing the world. We are a serious group and expect to find people as serious as we are on evolving to Homo Animus Aboriginalis. Anyone who is not serious will be told so very bluntly and can take their playing somewhere else. We are not here to play games. Survival of the fittest during the earth changes and all that. We shall also be trying to meet at the Borders in Concord and Keene at different times of the month. Call us for details.....This group is not intended ONLY for those wishing to find their place among the Lakota(sioux) Leavers but to also help and inspire those to find their story, write their story, etc.

Hudson Valley Potluck / Poughkeepsie Daniel Quinn Meetup
City, State Red Hook/Poughkeepsie, NY
Description In a potluck, everyone brings a little something different. The job of creating the experience is shared and so made easier on everyone. And because all sorts of things are brought to the table, everyone gets out more than they put in. It's a win-win situation in which the whole, through diversity and connection, is more than the sum of its parts. Whether you're talking about food or anything else, when unique individuals come together to give life to each other through community, you've got a potluck. These are some of the key ideas we can use to make things better for ourselves, our communities and the world. Inspired by the work of Daniel Quinn and many others, Hudson Valley Potluck is group of people in the Hudson Valley region of New York State who come together to discuss these kinds of ideas and to help each other put them into practice. What can you offer the potluck, and what can the potluck offer you?
