Book time with me.

When booking a time, please do so 24-48 hours in advance of your desired day and time. Day of appointments will not be honored as the day's schedule has already been put in motion. Thank you for your understanding.

I support The Transition because: the current state of things is not sustainable and we have to start building a better future NOW!

I am happiest when I'm: in the moment.

People see me as: a person without judgement.

I want to help because: our world is in need of some major healing.

My philosophy on life is: we are all far greater than we give ourselves credit for.

  • Millie Holliday's Expectations

    1. The Transition will help me address homelessness and economic issues in Johnson City, TN in sustainable ways

    2. I intend to engage on the site daily

    3. I expect to do the bulk of the work to get my projects off the ground

    4. I plan to be heavily invested in the transition for years to come

    5. By raising funds along with the organizations I'm trying to improve

    6. My professional goals are my personal goals. I want to nurture my personal development by nurturing my community's development.

    7. I am willing to contribute to the give and take of this online community of movers.

    8. I am willing to promote the site to fellow movers and shakers because it's the tool that I think my community needs to get our projects out of the idea stage.

    9. I expect this site to accelerate my career

    10. I think it's going to be a little slow at first but then it will steadily speed up

    11. I feel like all of my expectations are reasonable because I am not going to set myself up for failure

    12. I want to improve my community by acting as a quasi consultancy to work with local non-profits, businesses, and homeless agencies in the city to achieve their goals and accomplish projects in my interests (reducing homelessness and improving homeless prevention efforts).


  • Get Off Your "Buts" addition

    I think my biggest "but" was something like "but I don't even know what I want out of life. I don't know where I'm going or even where I want to/should be going. I don't have clarity. I have a vague idea of what I want my life to look like but I don't know how to clearly define my goal." Doing the Passion Principles exercise on nicolebienfang.com helped me with this. I now have clarity that my goal/destination is to create a life for myself in which I am living/realizing my passion principles that I discovered from doing that exercise. Thank you Nicole.

  • Feedback

    This isn't really a suggestion, but feedback from a person I was having a conversation with on FB, "Veronica-Mae Soar Karen Fischbach I had a quick look at the site and it was rather too complicated and full of too much stuff. It needs to become much simpler and more user friendly. I know people have worked hard on TT website and have made it the best they have been able, under the past and present circumstances. So this isn't a criticism, but simply feedback. No official response from TT team is requested by me.

  • In anger how do you calm yourself down?

    I own it. If it is a charge, i look for what angers me about the other that i see in myself . If it about injustice, broken agreements or boundary violations, i use my anger to step into clear assertive energy to address the situation. Anger is an E motion... a gateway to clean clear assertive behavior or in shadow "the Savage".

  • I do not have new expectations, I'm keeping an open mind!

    1. I feel like your organization can help navigate the many pitfalls that can plague starting a New Paradigm. To shift away from the old paradigm, reevaluating old belief systems, patterns, and changing them requires much work, more than what others expect. I hope this comprehensive process can show unique ways to ease the transition. 2. I plan to check/work daily, at the worst, weekly. 3. I'm confused with the question but I will answer this: I expect to give my all in my areas of expertise and providing as much as I can to help the Transition. I expect the Transition to help in areas that I have no knowledge or to provide unique connection, solutions, or examples of how to help achieve a more sustainable world. 4. I expect to be a team player for many years if it helps others see and act towards creating a better future. 5. I expect that most of projects started have to have grassroots beginnings where a few people share what that they can and see where the missing resources are to start small-scale projects that are profitable enough to expand the existing project or create another similarly profitable project. I do not know the funding system of the Transition but I would not ask for funding unless I had a plan that was well-developed by members of the Transition. 7. I expect this site to help both professionally and personally, whether it be connecting business connections towards creating sustainable businesses/projects, or leading to gurus/ceremonies, or healers that have solutions to emotional, physical, or spiritual problems. 8. Yes of course. 9. I am always altering my behaviors, mindset, and activities to align with the path of least harm but with the most amount postive transformation. I see the Transition aligned with this goal so yes. 10. I dunno, I expect a waiting time of around a week. 11. I do feel like it is reasonable, maybe slightly ambitious, but I'm easy-going so I keep my expectations pretty wide.

  • Change of Mission

    The Transition needs to change from a lofty headspace website to a practical "Hands on" organization.

    we (the collective of "awakened") don't need another "teaching website" telling us what must be done, asking for pledges without making the first step themselves.

    One huge issue thats stopping the "awakened" from acting is the chains of need.

    We all need Food, Water, Clothes, Tools, Housing that without a safetynet, can only be acquired via money.

    What "The Transition" needs to be is THE place to go for key resources.

    The Transition needs to acquire local storage/depots to allow US the volunteer's space to acquire resources that form the safety net!

    If we had free local storage we could set up resources banks, that's set up to be free to the point of need...

    This isn't charity shops.. the resources won't be sold for money or shipped to far-flung locations away from the people that need them...

    With local free storage. We can set up

    Transition FOOD BANKS (Not Trussel trust food banks that are restricted by the government and means tested to prevent its use) but FOOD BANKS that serve the people.. we donate the food and the food is checked, washed and then is Free to the point of need for the public that needs it.

    WATER BANKS (The Transition should approach land owners that have access to clean water sources, and use the water for free if (TT) supplies the storage and transport to the depots.

    CLOTHES BANKS... again instead of donating clothes to a charity that sells the clothes, the clothes are checked and washed and then is available to the public for free.

    TOOLS BANKS ... equipment is donated, checked, and refurbished/fixed and then is free to the point of need. (if people know that TOOLS are readily available .. they wouldn't need to store/own tools.. the tools can be donated once no longer needed)

    HOUSING/Shelter .. abandoned property that's been left to ruin can be repaired and redecorated and then OCCUPIED by the transition for use...

    For emergency housing, tents and shelters can be acquired on transition owned land.

    The safety net should be the Transitions NUMBER ONE GOAL for the first 10 years.

    Mr Damion Turner.

     

     

    Official response from completed

    Everything you have stated about the chain of needs, Food Banks Water Banks etc. is what we are hoping our BUDS will create within each area where there is a gathering of people that want to bring about the Transition to a resource based economy. Our site is here to help guide people to such groups and for those groups to advertise what they are doing. The Transition has the potential to be THE place to go for key resources if people came together and entered their information into our website. We have pages dedicated to finding people with certain skills (http://www.thetransition.org/member_skills), finding objects (http://www.thetransition.org/objects), spaces (http://www.thetransition.org/spaces) or even just other contributors (http://www.thetransition.org/find_nearby_contributors) that might be in your area.

  • 5 dimensions of conflict but only 4 are talked about

    In Dimensions of Conflict it says

    There are five major factors which influence the dimensions of conflicts, awareness of conflict, intensity of feelings and actions, rules or customs which regulate how conflicts are resolved, the purity of conflict, and the levels of power inequality.

    but purity of conflict is not discussed
