Submission Invitation

Our strong intention is for this website to be a generative space, a field of creation. It is designed as a vehicle through which everyone attracted to this field can contribute to the mapping endeavor. We believe that we learn about the field through seeing more clearly each of its parts and that each part becomes clearer about itself as it sees more of the wholeness of the field of which it is a part. Thus as each contribution makes visible or further describes aspects of the field, our collective ability to see the whole field expands. In short, we need you—all of you.

We invite you to participate in any of the following four ways:

Create a Self-Portrait

If you have a strong attraction to and experience with this field of collective wisdom, follow the instructions in Self-Portrait Invitation. We invite you to offer papers, photos, audio clips and suggest web links that you believe would inform the larger understanding of this field. These would be linked directly to your Self-Portrait. Please keep in mind that the Self-Portrait and any linked items are not primarily about promotion or sales of your work, although they may involve work you are engaged in.

Write a Seed Paper

A Seed Paper is a piece of original writing that illuminates some aspect of of the field of collective wisdom. It is expected to be original writing of 5-10 pages long, written to offer insight while inviting response and exchange. For more on Seed Papers, read What is a Seed Paper, and take a look at a Seed Paper already on the website as illustrations and examples of various approaches. If you would like us to consider posting a Seed Paper of your own, follow the Guidelines for Submissions.

Contribute related content, images or audio

We invite you to offer papers, photos, audio clips or to suggest web links that you believe would inform the larger understanding of this field. These would be linked directly to your Self-Portrait. If you would like us to consider adding other content, images or audio you think might be suitable for posting in one of the domain doorways, follow Guidelines for Submissions.

Respond to existing content

You are invited to add to this mapping endeavor by offering your reflections, extensions or points for further inquiry. At the bottom of each page, there is a "Comments?" icon for you to provide a short and focused response to any part of the website.

NOTE: Due to the volume and variety of items that may come our way, we will not be able to post everything sent to us. We are, however, very interested in receiving your suggestions and offerings aimed to enrich our understanding and mapping of this field.
