Tapping into a continuing source of energy, motivation, and significance
Beginnings, frustrations, milestones, progress, completions, new beginnings gain power and significance when marked, observed, celebrated, as points along the way of a greater journey, and a widening sphere of learnings, impact and participation
Cross-generational, periodic (scheduled) celebrations, at the same time every year, balanced with spontaneous celebrations, arising from the needs/opportunities of the situation
Schedule celebrations, and allow for spontaneous observances of major milestones or events, ideally involving all generations and sectors, as greater diversity uncovers deeper values.
