Gary   was also a founding member of The Mariposa Group in southern California and is still in L.A.  He has a love for working with his hands and runs a business entitled "Have tools will travel".  He dreams of building his own airplane and flying it to new performance records.  He says,  "I was born in Los Angeles, but I don't want to die here."  He also dreams of building a geodesic dome on community land here.

Kathleen is a practicing psychotherapist
and at this time mostly a "full time mom".
Aaron and Kiran are both the joy of her life
and at the same time, one of it's most
wonderful challenges.  She (when time permits)
enjoys meditation, movies, hikes, and a little bit
of piano playing.  She wants to write a book  on
her experiences around conception and pregnancy.
She and the kids are still in Los Angeles, but plans on
spending more time at the community land here.

Jana  is a very close support
person for Kathleen with regard
to the 2 kids.  Closer to the kids
than an "Aunt", they also love her
dearly.  The feeling is mutual as
you might guess from this photo.
 She works in media relations in L.A.

Aaron & Kiran are two little
(and growing) bundles of life, energy,
vitality and easy joy.  Being with them
while they grow and learn to move
and be in this world is a wonder,
a challenge, and a joy.

Sadly James is the first community member we
have lost to death after a brief illness.

James is a "Social Education Entrepreneur" whose life purpose deals with developing and delivering practical and simple "how to" education/training products and programs for living and sharing the Golden Rule.   The approach he uses is "Golden Rule Outreach" (GRO), a non profit education entity, and an initial curriculum called PowerChoices which focuses on youth ages 8-18.
The mission of Power Choices is to research, develop, produce, distribute and deliver programs on a global basis that coach young people on "how to" exercise their power to make better choices and create a better present and future for themselves and others.  James lives with his wife in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.

Nancy's   work is to bring people together in teams, or communities that are inclusive rather than exclusive.  It is also to find possibilities for people to support each other and their missions that are not harmful, addictive, or destructive to themselves or others.   Nancy is in the Seattle area.
