All members of our Sonoma community are invited to join us on our newly created Community website where we are developing our own Local Directory, highlighting our Community Events, widening our circle for exploring innovative ideas, and developing practical skills that will strengthen our community and move us towards progress.
We all benefit by sharing what we've learned. Our vision is to encourage community involvement and to harness our community's expertise to determine needs, visions, and actions surrounding our common issues. Our goal is to bring all our members together, including both businesses and consumers, to support our community in the development of Economic and Social Responsibility. Together, we will explore the ways and means of how we can make a positive difference in our own hometowns.
Widening our Circle: Albert Einstein said, "A human being is part of the whole, called by us 'Universe,' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest-a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
