If you’d like to travel with us --

Things have a way of unfolding, superficially, these days on a grand scale, yet without much substance. They are here today and gone tomorrow; a fate I, personally, do not cherish.

The Small “Zones Of Peace” Project, sponsored by New Horizons Support Network, Inc. does not subscribe to this fast-paced way of traveling through life. We are always after turning the lead into the gold. The latter takes time, patience and more patience.
We want to travel
with you!

On the other hand, we must be realistic. The world of Future Shock is upon us, now. And we are called to manage new ways of doing and being, even if we do not like them (maybe we will later). We wonder, not infrequently, how to develop substance given the limits of present conditions.

But life being what it is these days, we have decided to make a few huge adjustments. This means we will, now, seek ways to expand our interactive-dependent Bus Ride Story Adventure, Coffee House Conversations community-unity building model, our Cultural Mediation Paradigm and our various other programs and projects on the internet. Somehow this will, also, include the wonderful treats of our Abkhazian Dinner program. (You will, however, need to supply your own food.)

We will still continue to do our best to bring real live humans, together, face-to-face, with other real live humans. However, we will now, also, stretch ourselves and our skills online too.

But don’t be fooled by our efforts for an expanded presence, here; substance and surface are not necessarily easy partners. 

We will still need to take time to grow, develop, nurture and mature our intention – to bring about a flourishing result; the “awe” of turning lead into gold that is our standard. 

We are not even certain we can achieve this. So don’t expect too much from this new initiative.  Nothing substitutes for living, breathing human beings.

Nonetheless, having determined this direction, you can, now, look forward to garnering more and more tips and tools on --

“How to become the best possible human in the best possible society” 

-- the New Horizons’ Small “Zones of Peace” Project way from here forth, beginning today. 

You can be a part of our unfolding – and develop more of your own -- by following our blog postings and radio shows, imperfect as they and we are.

In fact, on last night’s Possible Society In Motion Radio Show, we discussed “Being the change” we are seeking by taking risks to expand our comfort zones. Today, we are doing just that, here.

So let the good times and the Easter eggs roll!

And, have a very happy holiday weekend.

Best wishes,

Anastasia and Sue

Being the change




Thursday, April 17   6:30 p.m.

With co-hosts, Anastasia Rosen-Jones and Jack Slattery
We each have a critical eye which sees EVERYTHING that’s wrong with the world.  We each have a complaining voice which can go on and on about these things.  We swim in a culture rife with polarization and fragmentation. But it does not have to be this way!

There is good news.  Not by “seeing the world through rose-colored glasses” or ignoring the bad to see only the good. But by mining the lead of our social problems, we can turn these into the gold of solutions that make a difference; one day at a time, one person at a time.

By learning to utilize Anastasia’s recently introduced “Lean In Legacy Template” the new centerfold of the Possible Society In Motion Radio Show, each and every one of us can exercise our innate human capacities to be the change we are seeking, individually and collectively.

Co-hosts, Anastasia and Jack, focus on the element of "change" as the focus of this intriguing episode, tonight at 6:30 p.m.

Report Cards In The Mail

For Possible Human, Possible Society Study Participants

Report cards now being processed and mailed throughout 2014!
Report Cards In
The Mail!

How did you rate? In terms of the following three assessment indicators we are presently employing?
 (Check out these assessment indicators to see how your own evaluation corresponds with ours when your personalized “report card” arrives.)

About Possible Human, Possible Society Study Report Cards.
New Horizons has now begun a lengthy and involved process that will enable us to provide personalized feedback to participants to indicate how the individuals’ responses correspond to our collective data, thus far.

Our Interpretation Method uses a one to ten scoring process, applied to a, somewhat, tongue-in-cheek report card, scoring system.  If you are already a participant, we hope you will find your individualized “report card” of value.

Should you wish to participate in the study, but have not yet, please contact me, Anastasia at: zonesofpeacenh@aol.com or by cell: 240.409.5347. To participate, you must meet the eligibility requirement of living within the one-hundred mile radius of the Washington, D.C. White House.

Look for your report card via snail mail. Given the demands necessitated  by as major an endeavor as this; personalized “report cards” for over one hundred people, now participating in our study, expect to wait as long as until the end of 2014 to receive yours.

Should you wish us to expedite our feedback report to you, please contact me, Anastasia at: zonesofpeacenh@aol.com or by cell: 240.409.5347 to request your “report card” and assist our updating of data as it relates to you.

This will definitely give your personalized “report card” a priority position in our assessment process.

We look forward to providing this interpretation from the information you so generously provided us. And, offering you the opportunity to examine our estimation of your study responses, up against the whole of the data we have collected to date.
