What is the Co-Creative Process?
Co-creation is really very simple. It is people with similar interests and intentions bringing together their energy in the form of enthusiasm, openness, cooperation and enjoyment. Co-creation is each person transforming their own individual experience within a framework of benefiting the whole. This is what Golden Flower is working toward. Everyone is welcome to join our Community, where they are supported in expanding their awareness and creating the life that they want to live. Co-creation is a highly energetic, yet peaceful process, that is enhanced through clarity, passion and elevating your vibration to a level that allows for the natural abundance of life to be felt and manifest through flow and harmonious unfolding.
You Are Essential
As soon as you walk through the door of the Golden Flower School, you are a co-creator enrolled in a dynamic learning environment. Every person involved in the school, influences and changes the school, hence co-creation. In essence, co-creation is a partnership that provides the opportunity for everyone involved: teachers and students alike, to powerfully and intentionally create their experiences in the School and in their life.
Take a Class, Practice, Volunteer, Communicate
Golden Flower Principals are manifest in co-creation. When flow and natural harmony are the guiding energies around what you create, co-creation is at play.
How Students and Instructors Co-Create Every Class Together
At Golden Flower each class is designed to evolve and respond to the needs of the students. The students become active, co-creators and the Golden Flower Principals are taught through experience. In this way each Instructors’ approach to teaching can be nimble, ever-changing and enhanced by the students’ participation. It is an organic process that creates flow and harmony.
Donating is Mutually-Beneficial
As with volunteering, when you make a donation to the Golden Flower Community, you get back much more than you give. We want you to have a part in growing the school, in co-creating where we will go in the future. Your donation connects you directly to this creative force.
Volunteer and Become Part of the Golden Flower Community
People learn through experiences, not just hearing or reading about something. By volunteering you have access to a lot of learning opportunities you wouldn’t necessarily have during a class. You can also meet new people, and when you visit Heavenly Way Retreat, you have the opportunity to interact directly with the beauty of nature and the horses, donkeys, and other animals. It’s another level of deep participation. You’re not learning about life, you are living it.
Volunteer Opportunities at Heavenly Way
Currently at Heavenly Way, Golden Flower’s Retreat Center, people have the opportunity to participate by: gardening, helping to take care of the horses, trail building, and archiving Golden Flower photos, text and audio clips of Master San Gee Tam’s teachings. Heavenly Way is located just 45 minutes from Winston-Salem or Greensboro.
Volunteer Opportunities at the Trade Street Center
Currently at the Trade Street Center in Downtown Winston-Salem, volunteers are helping to take care of the space, work in the back meditation garden and helping with special events and Gallery Hop Tai Chi demonstrations. The Center is located on Trade Street, between 6th and 7th Streets, in The Arts District. Street parking is typically plentiful.
