Existing Knowledge & Skill

     We are so excited at even the prospect of collaborating with you. Aside from organization and logistics skills, we want to have a sense of the areas you would be able and willing to venture into for our collaboration. We are interested in getting a more detailed understanding of your knowledge and skills along with your affinities and interests. That way we can be sure to supplement our overall team with other collaborators on a project-by-project basis. You, Sangodare and Alexis will, however, have an umbrella relationship to all the projects. Though it will not be necessary for you to do all things at all times, different projects will require different skill-sets and tasks, including learning as we go.
     If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

Interest and/or Afinnity

     We are grateful to the universe and all of our ancestors that there is an alignment strong enough to bring us together at this moment. We are so grateful to have a grounded force on our team and participating in our other collaborations as well. We are interested in supporting you to follow your interests and affinities beyond managing tasks, schedules, information, etc, and so we want to understand the other areas you are interested in exploring. We are happy for this collaboration to be a learning experience and skill-building experience for all of us.

Knowledge, Skill and Interest Form

Hopefully, this form will be a relatively quick and easy way for you to communicate to us about your knowledge, skills and interests related to our needs. The tasks listed below represent the necessary elements to achieve our goals, mission and vision. They fall into three categories - Spiritual, Media/Communications and Logistics/Administrative. On this page we are both sharing about what will be involved in the collaboration and measuring where you would most contribute to those tasks.

Choose your selections based on this statement: "I have knowledge, skill, a practice or interest in this area."  Choose the most relevant and highest level that applies.

  • For example, I have a lot of experience making phone calls but I do not want to make phone calls. So I would choose "Strongly Disagree" because what is most relevant is that I have no interest in doing this task.
  • For example, I have read many books about healing and am very interested in it but have not participated in any healing training. So, I would choose "Strongly Agree" because I am interested and that is most relevant.
