How Can The Bond Help Your Community
THE BOND is a handbook for a better community — whether your neighborhood or your entire town or city.
As THE BOND shows, the best way to unite any group is through a ‘superordinate’ goal — a goal only achieved by large cooperative teamwork of two or more people.
- Engaging in sharing and teamwork tends to transcend differences, because it emphasizes the very heart of humanity — we are all in this together.
People who fire together wire together. The scientific evidence shows that whenever a group works together for a common goal, the brains of all parties begin to get on the same wavelength, strengthening the Bond within the group.
A common and larger purpose creates instant closeness in any social setting and offers an excellent tool for maintaining cooperation in your neighborhood and uniting people who are in opposition on other issues.
THE BOND offers a complete toolkit for achieving this kind of ‘we’re all in this together’ closeness.
Specifically you’ll learn:
- the extraordinary ‘Power of Eight’: how to create a ‘superorganism’ of collective brain-wave resonance and instant closeness, quickly transforming a group of strangers into a potent healing circle
- dynamic techniques to get a disparate, disputing group of people — at home or in your neighborhood — to put aside individual differences, learn to trust and band together cooperatively for effective change — of any sort
- ingenious methods of ensuring that you and everyone around you remain prosperous and in work through a neighborhood ‘savings bank’ of bartered services, communal savings and loan, security watch or food sharing
Plus you’ll find a detailed study guide and handbook for community groups, which provides everything from how to get started to what to talk about in weekly meetings.
