Informing the Campfire Community every day

You are here

Pete Lawrence - 22 Oct 2019


Here are some proposals for new Campfire Circle Teams and parallel WhatsApp groups after recent discussions. We're looking to gauge the interest / appetite. Here are a few notes that may help.  Ideally we'd move these groups to Campfire when our Drupal 8 site is ready.

Guiding Lights - Campfire anchor and vision

Events Circle - Organising team for Campout, ideas for other events

Karma Circle - Campfire's rewards and abundance scheme

Editorial Circle - Writing, commissioning, editorial policy

Design Circle - Campfire look and feel

Dev Circle - Technical development online

Kindling Circle - Campfire youth - children's fire, bringing young people around the fire

Mentors & Elder Circle - Lighthouse For Learning and Wisdom

Wellbeing Circle - Looking after ourselves, regeneration

Biz Circle - Financial planning, new paradigm business modelling  

Outreach Circle - Spreading the word 

Rituals and Ceremonies Circle - Re-enchantment of the everyday


We invite your feedback.




Steve Thorp

I like this streamlining, Pete. What is your one-liner for the Wellbeing Circle? As a (related) sidestep, not sure you've seen what Climate Psychology Alliance are offering in terms of therapeutic support to XR people and others involved in climate action –


Pete Lawrence

Apologies that Wellbeing description got deleted for some reason. I've added it back in
"Wellbeing Circle - Looking after ourselves. Pausing, reflecting, nourishing and regenerating."


Christopher Brown

Happy to help out where needed also has anyone checked out “Telegram” as an alternative to whatsapp


Pete Lawrence

Yes, we auctioned Telegram and Signal too and ended up choosing WhatsApp for now as most people were on it and using art most days whereas they weren't with Signal. I'm not really comfortable with this logic, given that we're trying to persuade people to move to and post on Campfire @Christopher Brown but we need to be talking to each other first and foremost.


George Scott

I am interested in being involved in the Health and wellbeing circle.

I have also got some ideas regarding funding and happy to also be involved in the steering group.
