This is our moment.

Every moment brings a seed of development an opportunity for collaboration and a chance to change the world.

The world changes in a moment and this is our moment.

Let’s make the most of it!


My name is David Richmond. I facilitate the authentic creative development that occurs when we seek a creative alignment between our ourselves, those around us and the wider world.

I’d like to invite you to:

Programme

This is Our Moment is a rolling programme of authentic creative development that anyone can join at any time.

The programme seeks to facilitate mutual support and collaboration between people at different places on our development journeys.

We all explore the same questions that help us focus  on our long-term development as individuals, groups and communities.

Every question follows the same process so we can work through the programme in any order and at our own pace.

Keeping a record of our creative journey  helps us support each other and build our resources for further development.

This strategic approach enables me to design personal bespoke programmes (walks, forums, projects and events)  that enable people to tap into a wider development community whilst benefitting from – and contributing to – a growing resource.


How you can engage?

It is a simple, universal process that is useful at any stage of every developmental activity, so people can join in at any time.  Feel free to:


Features of the programme:

An open programme, the process is open to all, feel free to adopt and adapt it to suit your own development.

A universal and comprehensive programme that can be applied to every stage of any developmental activity (by individuals, organisations and communities).

A personal, self-organised programme with  a process you  implement in your own practice –  you provide your own content, exploring the process at your own pace and investing as much or as little as is useful for yourself.

A social programme to facilitate shared exploration and creative collaboration,  with opportunities to get peer-support and advice from other people on the programme.

A strategic programme that helps us make the best use of our resources to achieve our long term goals.

A sustainable programme – helps to facilitate sustainable social change by ensuring all our activities take place in the context of our long-term development as individuals, groups and communities.

An on-going programme with no false starts or abrupt stops.

A cyclical programme – the programme follows a simple development cycle that is repeated regularly to help us maintain a development approach in which we keep a positive attitude and learn from our experience.

A non-linear programme, we are all at different stages in our development, the programme does not assume that we are all ‘blank slates’ or that we start from the same place or are able to invest the same about of time and energy.

A modular programme, each element has the same basic features – you can join in at any time and it doesn’t matter if you’ve missed a session. In fact, you’ve already started – you’ve been in development your whole life!


All these features makes it easy for me to design bespoke development pathways and projects and adapt the programme to fit your particular circumstances. Contact me for details.

Community

A development community is a group of people who support each other to be ourselves.

Being true to ourselves is not about trying to be some perfect version of ourselves or the person we think others want us to be. It is about being who we really are in this moment, a person in development.

We seek this authenticity in our own lives, in our relations with others and in our commitment to sustainable social change.

By joining our community you’ll be supporting me to be myself, making it easier for me to support others and accessing a supportive community who can help you be yourself.

As the network grows we’ll be able to support more people, provide more walks, forums and events, create better resources, develop partnership projects and much more.

You can join our community for as little as $1 dollar a month.   For those that can contribute more there are lots more benefits including personal and team walks and on-going support and resources to develop yourself, your team or organisation.
