Werner's Work Is Coming Back To Hawai'i Again

"If you don't take it out into the world, you didn't get it in the first place."  ... 
This essay, Werner's Work Is Coming Back To Hawai'i Again, is the eight hundredth in this Conversations For Transformation internet series. That doesn't mean anything. It's just what's so.

It is also the fifth in an open group World Transformed:
  1. The Friends Of The Landmark Forum In South Africa
  2. The Transformation Of The World
  3. Werner's Work Is Coming Back To Hawai'i
  4. Werner Erhard Slide Experience
  5. Werner's Work Is Coming To Back To Hawai'i Again
  6. Werner's Work Is Coming To Fiji
  7. Werner's Work Is Coming To The Dominican Republic
  8. The Breakthrough That Unlocks Futures
  9. Werner's Work Is Back In Hawai'i
in that order.

It is also is the sequel to Werner's Work Is Coming Back To Hawai'i.

I am indebted to Walter Peters and to Marsha Joyner and to Alice Talbott and to Elizabeth Russell who inspired this conversation.

Werner's work coming forth is like a volcano erupting. When a volcano erupts, it's unstoppable. New islands, new land, and new continents are formed where before there were none. When Werner's work comes forth, it's unstoppable. Transformation, possibility, and enrollment come into being where before there were none. New Life begets new life.

I assert it's healthy to participate in discussion about the value of any program - Werner's programs in particular, in whose case it's actively encouraged. In the past, long before the value of Werner's work was proven ie fait accompli, these discussions sounded a lot like debates: the one side argued there was no value, the other side countered there is value.

We've been at the point for a while now where there's no point debating this issue any further. The jury is back. The results are counted. The vast  majority of people who have participated in Werner's work say it's the single most powerful experience of their lives, transforming both their own lives, the lives of their family (including the lives of family members who haven't yet participated), rippling out into their communities and the world.

Imagine bringing forth the miracle of transformation in the Aloha  spirit of the Hawai'ian islands as a gift to the native Hawai'ian community, the Hawai'ian nation. Be very still for just a moment and allow both transformation and the Aloha spirit to move you, to use  you. Who among us can not  be inspired?

Originally Werner's work, in the form of the est  Training, was offered in Hawai'i through the est  center in Honolulu. A twenty year hiatus ended in October of 2009 when Werner's work returned to Hawai'i in the form of the Landmark Forum for Reviewers led by Landmark Forum Leader Linda Zraik with ninety one people participating. This October 2009 Landmark Forum for Reviewers was sourced by the Landmark center in San Francisco, California.

There are now thousands of est  graduates, graduates of the Forum, and graduates of the Landmark Forum living in Hawai'i. Now it's this local group of the graduates themselves who are sourcing Werner's work coming back to Hawai'i again in the form of the Being Extraordinary: The Art and Practice of Living from Possibility graduate workshop which will be led by Alice Talbott, fueling the rapidly growing momentum of the grass roots movement to deliver the Landmark Forum in Hawai'i by the end of 2013, and to re‑establish a center, this time a Landmark center, in Honolulu. It's truly awesome.



The Next Invitation

We are promising seventy five people registered and participating in this workshop. Our goal is actually a hundred and fifty people. At 3:46pm PST on Friday February 1, 2013 I made the following worldwide announcement to two thousand people plus by e-mail, with the intention of enrolling them in participating in this possibility of Werner's work coming back to Hawai'i again. If you're in Hawai'i, this is clearly an opportunity not to miss. If you're not, this is clearly an opportunity not to miss listening for  its possibility (the book is yet to be written on what the opportunity to listen for  a possibility, is).

Please notice this announcement is expressed as a work in progress.

I'm thrilled, delighted, and very, very happy to announce the work Werner Erhard started is coming back to Hawai'i again, following the success of the Landmark Forum for Reviewers which blazed the trail in October of 2009 for Werner's work to return to Hawai'i after a hiatus of almost two decades.

Originally Werner's work, in the form of the est  Training, was offered in Hawai'i through the est  center in Honolulu. There are thousands of est  graduates, graduates of the Forum, and graduates of the Landmark Forum in Hawai'i. Now, in the form of the Being Extraordinary: The Art and Practice of Living from Possibility graduate workshop, Werner's work is coming back to Hawai'i again, fueling the rapidly growing momentum of the grass roots movement to deliver the Landmark Forum in Hawai'i by the end of 2013, and to re‑establish a center, a Landmark center, in Honolulu.

The 10 sessions of the Being Extraordinary: The Art and Practice of Living from Possibility graduate workshop occur from March 5 through June 4, 2013 on Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm through 9:30pm in the 3rd floor conference room of Ward Warehouse, Honolulu, O'ahu, Hawai'i on the following dates:

Werner's work is indeed coming back to Hawai'i again. It's unstoppable, inevitable, inexorable  - like a volcano erupting. Transformation, possibility, and enrollment will come into being where before there were none. Also like a volcano erupting, it's awesome, beautiful, riveting  to be close to and to behold.


Thank You From Me Personally

Thank for for listening Werner's work coming back to Hawai'i again.

Thank you for allowing me to share this opportunity with you in such a way that you embolden it with possibility, that you make it real in the world - in other words, thank you for listening for this opportunity in a way that literally transforms it from an idea into actuality.
