Transitions and Team Building

By: Benjamin Crandall

There are some big shifts happening with Kindista right now and we need your energy, love, and help to make the transition. I have felt for a long time that it has not been in Kindista’s best interest to have so much of the responsibility of its development, maintenance, and leadership in my hands alone. Instead of reaching out, I’ve worked  myself harder, let myself get burned out, and procrastinated in writing this blog post. I deeply desire to see Kindista soar to new heights and the truth is that it needs a larger core team to do so.

We live in a world of paradox. Vast abundance exists alongside extreme poverty. Kindista embodies the possibilities of deep trust and ease for our lives, our community and for the world. And with your help, Kindista can be the real possibility of shared prosperity and opportunity for all.

We are building a Leadership Team of caring, passionate, and dedicated human beings to take Kindista to the next level.

These people will be in charge of the strategy, management, and implementation of Kindista’s success going forward. They will take on:

Please email us if you are interested in taking a leadership role in any of these area.

Also, spread the word if you know someone who would be perfect for our team.

And if you can’t help us grow our Leadership Team, consider donating. We need your support!

Personally, this project has been my primary life work for the past five years. It has been an awesome and fulfilling experience. But I took on too much by myself and that became unsustainable; both financially and energetically. Going forward, I will continue to contribute to Kindista’s success in a part-time role on the Leadership Team.

There are important areas of my life that I have been neglecting, and to which I am now shifting some of my energy. I am starting a part time job at a local solar installation company, helping my community transition to solar energy. I am making more room in my life for music, T’ai Chi, meditation, and nature. And I am taking baby steps in a visionary idea I have to scale permaculture up to the point that it can begin replacing industrial agriculture.

I believe the world needs more people showing up in their fullness. We need work that supports us in bringing our neglected passions and abilities to life. I hope you will help grow Kindista’s Leadership Team so I have room in my life to express my fullness. And I hope I can help create space and opportunities for all of your miraculous dreams to come to life as well.

With love and solidarity, Benjamin, Kindista

This was very beautiful to read. I'd like to thank you for what you've done & what you're doing. I am new on here & still learning to navigate on here & I have nothing to offer, but maybe love, respect, and knowledge I have in the health & wellness field upon request, as my little girl & I are coming from a broken down car with no furniture even. I wish I had more to give, but before I got in the situation I was in, I had actually donated all my stuff, so I can live a simple lifestyle, but now having custody of my niece no longer permits me to do so. Thank you once again. May you have a bright, beautiful, & blessed day Benjamin.
