Working together to make healthy local living economies the best investment worldwide
Dear Friends of the Solari Action Network,
The Solari Action Network is percolating – inspired by men and women from diverse walks of life and placesin neighborhoods throughout America and around the world – exploring practical ways to transform our culture and economy through individual and local action. We look forward to seeing you online athttp://solari.com.
Call to action
We are quite literally at a crossroads in history. It is the time to re-imagine our world as we wish it to be, to re-ignite our sense of community and civic responsibility, and to reinvent our lives. As Caroline W. Casey teaches us, it is the time to invite in the Jetino – the magic that comes in dangerous times.
We vote every day with our time, our money and our attention.
Solari is a solution for re-invigorating communities.
This transformation starts with a conversation dialogue illuminating how the money works in our place and how we as a community can cooperate to have make it work for us.
How you can help make this vision a reality
Here are five opportunities to help make that happen:
Opportunity #1. Learn about the Solari model and why it is a uniquely powerful framework for citizen citizen-led solutions.
Opportunity #2. Connect with others who are exploring the possibilities and sharing knowledge.
Opportunity #3. Fuel the creation of the network by making a donation.

Opportunity #1: Learn About the Solari Model
Audio: Solari Workshop in Sebastopol
During the Magic & Money Speaking Tour in California, Catherine did a workshop in Sebastopol on the solari model.

Thanks to Solari Action Network member Christina Engelbart of Sebastopol California who has recently joined Catherine at Solari, these articles are freely accessible through an updated (and much lovelier!) Solari website:http://solari.com/learn/
Opportunity #2: Sign Up to Connect with Others & Build the Tools
The purpose of the Solari Action Network is to build a global forum that fosters a conversation about how to align community health with investment wealth.
With special thanks to Solari Action Network members Henri Poole and Christopher Reed of Affero.com, we have launched an on line forum. The forum makes it possible for network members to connect with others in their community and their community of interest, and contribute to the emerging conversation.
The forum also creates a way for Catherine to respond to the growing questions on line, to update network members on her speeches and articles, and to post some of her efforts to support a global network of independent media and researchers. These are all part of creating the transparency, the sunshine that is so essential for the creation of a solari in your community.
Do sign up and join us in the conversation!http://solariactionnetwork.com.
Opportunity #3: Vote with Your Money for the Solari Action Network
Now you can vote with your money and your comments for the Solari Action Network. Thanks to critical support from allies Brad de Graf of Venture Collective.org and Henri Poole of Affero.com, we have launched a campaign to build a flow of sustainable donations to nurture and support Catherine and the Solari Action Network.
Donations provide the financial energy we need to sustain our efforts and provide the critical "votes" that demonstrate that popular support exists for honest media, honest government and honest business leadership. Our on line forum includes ways you can post comments and add your name to those contributing. The growing number of "votes" creates momentum behind our intention for positive transformation. Ten percent of all donations are tithed to the Independent Media Fund at Venture Collective.org.
Your vote is powerful. Do take this opportunity to vote for Catherine and the Solari Action Network athttp://solari.com/vote.php.
Give what is comfortable for you, such as:
Thank you so much for your support!
