Newly-minted full mentor Rick Thomas, H.W., M., has left the Executive Council to seek a new direction in his teaching and counseling. William Fennie, H.W., M., has returned from his sabbatical to join serving members Al Haferkamp, H.W., M., (Dean) and Heather Williams, H.W., M.
One of the first actions of the newly formed Executive Council was to deny the proposed Comprehensive Workshop class which the long-standing Monday Night listening and dialogue group had hoped to begin on September 24. This would have been an online class presented by Thane (on audiotape) and discussed by the group using the Group Dynamics method taught by Thane in his lesson “Group Dynamics and the Art of Leadership.”
The reason cited for denial of this class was that “it is not timely.” No further elaboration was offered by the Executive Council other than to say: “Comprehensive Workshop is part of the Pinnacle Class series. The Executive Council is not prepared to approve these lessons at this time.”
According to our best sources, the last time Comprehensive Workshop was presented in public was at The Prosperos Assembly over Labor Day weekend in 2002, when it was presented in full (via Thane on audiotape) and monitored by Trustee Anne Bollman, H.W., M.
The Monday Night group is still deciding how (and perhaps whether) to proceed.
