KEYS **** The following may helpfully be used to introduce a workshop activity on how we may help each other to Mitigate Our-Own Alienative-conflicts: We may be able to help each other to Mitigate Our-Own-Alienative-Conflicts - - - by intentionally cooperating in efforts to shift-our-attentions to helpfully-chosen-affirmations - - - seeking consensuses about what will be most important in any SUSTAINABLE civilization in Space-Ship-Earth - - - because the FOCI-of-the-AFFIRMATIONS will pertain to the fulfillment of ALL of the Most-Basic-and-Healthy-Needs of ALL of the Crew our Community in God's Astronomically-Tiny-and-Isolated Space- Ship-Earth. Begin now by writing down your own brief indications of what you believe are: 1. Our Most-Basic-and-Healthy-Needs as humane-humans. 2. Central Most-Basic-and-Healthy: Ideals, Values, Principles, Virtues, Guidelines, Hopes, Aspirations etc. that need to be Our-Foci in Our-Own-Efforts to Mitigate-Our-Own-Alienative-Conflicts. Form one third as many small groups - - - as their are participants in the Workshop; distributing extra participants to form groups of three to five participants within that number of small groups. 3. Within each group share speaking time equally among all in the group; eliciting input from quiet members of the group. 4. Be brief in stating clearly in as few words as possible, KEY-FOCI-OF-AFFIRMATIONS that may become consensus FOCI. 5. Avoid unnecessarily triggering controversies and contentious altercations! 6. Be explicit about assumptions, motivations and purposes to be served through PURELY-AFFIRMATIVE-BEHAVIORS! 7. Focus on Key-Affirmations that you can safely trust in the widest possible ranges of circumstances! 8. Graciously keep each other focused on this assigned task and do not let each other distract you from this task! 9. Beware of words that even-suggest: negations, contests, contentions, fighting, battles, winning, losing, defeating, etc. 10. Beware of words that even-suggest: domination, PRESSure, supPRESSion, opPRESSion, dePRESSion, rePRESSion, etc. Shalom!
