The 'Infinity Ring' is the Node of Possibility Trainers who handle behind-the-curtains (and for-free) whatever needs to be handled to make the Possibility Management gameworld fly. Perhaps more accurately the Infinity Ring should be shown as the outermost ring in the diagram, or the bottom ring near the roots.

The purpose of Rage Club is to change your relationship to the feeling of anger so that anger is consciously available to you as an adult whenever you need it, without being possessed or overwhelmed by it.
In modern culture we are deeply conditioned to believe that it is not okay to be angry because “anger is one of the negative feelings,” and “anger is dangerous, loud, embarrassing, uncivilized”. When you learn to own your anger and use it responsibly, you get clarity and can act, protect yourself and avoid creating victim-drama-stories.
Rage Clubs are an extremely safe learning environment allowing you to reconnect to the adult and archetypal power and intelligence of your anger.
Rage Club Spaceholders are delivering online and offline Rage Clubs around the world. Can you imaging any work more important than this, people taking their Center back, their Voice Back, their Authority Back, their creation power back!
So much healing and transformation happens in Rage Club. Each meeting is a celebratory event!
See if you can get into the next Rage Club Spaceholder Training.
Participants often say that the Possibility Labs are amazing and necessary, but where their life really changed was in their Possibility Team, a weekly meeting in someone's living room to practice applying new skills in an ultra-safe environment.
One tiny step after another, supported by fellow adventurers, builds your capacity to show up in your life like nothing else can. If you cannot locate a Possibility Team near you on the PM Calendar, simply start one of your own. You can download your free PossibiIity Team Handbook with all the details from the Possibility Team website.
Gremlin Transformation is an online or offline 8 to 12 week space for transforming your relationship with your Gremlin, and by association, with Gremlins in general.
It could be part of your Path to help others transform their Gremlin into an ally for healing and transformation. Here are those who developed Gremlin Transformation, supporting you to deliver such valuable work.
Far weightier than we ever before imagined, contaminating your Adult Egostate with behaviors from your Child Egostate, Parent Egostate, Gremlin Egostate, or Demon Egostate as a Survival Strategy has serious consequences. It is straightforward how to Decontaminate your Adult Egostate.
No one can do this for you.
More interestingly, no one can stop you from doing it.
If you are not finding satisfaction living inside of the capitalist patriarchal empire, then you are already an Edgeworker. After some time living at the edge, it starts to become apparent that you have a further step to take: build your own Gameworld. As Buckminster Fuller implied, "You don't change things by fighting against the existing gameworlds. You change things by building and inhabiting new regenerative gameworlds that make the existing gameworlds irrelevant."
Mediation is a means of resolving disputes outside of the judicial system by voluntary participation in negotiations, structured by agreement of the parties, and conducted under the guidance and supervision of a trained intermediary, the mediator. (Definition from: Merriam-Webster dictionary)
Possibility Mediation takes a different approach. Rather than remaining in the limited assumptions of the current problem space, a Possibility Mediator takes all stakeholders and the current circumstances into a space originating within a different context. The context of Possibility Mediation is radical responsibility and nonlinearpossibility. This can change everything.
Skills include Torus Technology for organizing and running projects and communities, learning to communicate and connect, and applying Winning Happening rather than competition. In short, here is the way to optimal liberation of group intelligence.
A hierarchy promotes those who are best at doing 'whatever it takes' to occupy the next higher position of power. The results are obvious in modern culture - uninitiated psychopaths at the top.
Unless you learn the entirely new Torus Meeting Technologies, values, decision-making procedures, and processes needed to create and run meetings in circles (toroids...) you will merely re-create modern culture in 'green'.
These questions are frequently asked, but perhaps not frequently enough...
Where did Possibility Management come from?
Long ago, in a country far, far away, a young Physics student named Clinton Callahan realized he was not learning what he truly longed to learn through California Polytechnic State University's 1975 curriculum. He eventually became frustrated enough to post flyers for a meeting to discuss alternative possibilities. To his fearful surprise, more than seventy-five fellow students showed up, even though he had never given a talk before in his life...
After that nerve-wracking evening he met every Thursday evenings at 7:30pm with a smaller group of these explorers to support each other moving through their personal and social blocks, learning what they truly wanted to learn.
Clinton's Box meticulously documented whatever the Team discovered that was useful. By 'accident' in 1991 Clinton's hobby of navigating nonlinear discovery spaces became his profession when he was hired as a secretary in a small Arizona training company.
Then in 1995 the universe grabbed Clinton by the scruff of his neck and dropped him in the middle of Europe where people were more open to abandoning their birth culture and trying out new thoughtware.
Finally, in March of 1998 (over twenty years ago...) Clinton delivered the first prototype of Expand The Box training in Hamburg, Germany. Within a couple of years graduates were demanding next steps, so Possibility Labs were invented.
In 2016 Marion Lutz spearheaded the creation of a new and comprehensive Possibility Management gameworld website (http://possibility management.org), and by December of 2016 the Trainer Guild had matured enough that Clinton could step backwards away from being the main Spaceholder and could become merely one of the Possibility Trainers in the Trainer Path, starting over with his own personal website and newsletter.
In March 2018 the next exciting chapter of Possibility Management emerged, namely, taking full responsibility for serving the request for stable local Possibilitator circles in various new countries around the world. Thus the need for this website emerged, to introduce Possibility Management globally.
Then at the April 2018 Trainer Research Lab at Möglichketenraum in Steinhagen, the Trainer Guild spontaneously invented a non-hierarchical self-organizing meeting and decision-making procedure called Torus Technology.
Possibility Management encompasses a spectrum of innovative soft skills which allow you to liberate often-overlooked inner and outer Resources. To these tools we combine core elements from other important teachings, such as Transactional Analysis, originated by Eric Berne, and Parent Effectiveness Training, originated by Thomas Gordon.
However, most of Possibility Management has been derived empirically, by trial and error experiments repeated over and over for many years.
This is why Possibility Management delivers such a fresh and remarkably effective impact. It is, for the most part, different from anything you've ever seen before.
Possibility Management is not derived from the fields of psychology, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, gestalt therapy, or any of the works of Sigmund Freud or Carl Jung.
Possibility Management is not religion and not philosophy.
In Possibility Management there is nothing to believe.

Why are two logos associated with Possibility Management?
a reasonable question...
One logo shows the cube and the sphere symbols from Possibility Management, where the cube represents current reality and the sphere represents unlimited Possibilities. The connection between the cube and the sphere symbolizes the ever-present Possibility of Transformation - the mythical 'sphering' of the cube.
The other logo associated with Possibility Management is an infinity-sign surrounded by a thin circle, which represents the archetypally initiated adult feminine 'everythingness' creatively collaborating with the archetypally initiated adult masculine 'nothingness'. This is the Radical Relating of next culture - Archiarchy - the culture naturally emerging around the world now that Matriarchy and Patriarchy have run their course.
Possibility Management finds resonance with both of these symbols because we discovered that not only is Possibility Management thoughtware for Nonmaterial Creation, we 'accidentally' also discovered that Possibility Management is thoughtware for Archiarchy. Possibility Management carries seeds for upgrading human thoughtware so that humanity increases its chances of having a future on Earth.
What is the difference between Education and Training?
a dangerous question...
An Education provides already known information for you to think about in classes.
A Training upgrades the thoughtware you are using to think with in processes.
An Education adds content to your mind.
A Training shifts the context of your Being.
In classes you learn something new through studying what others have already figured out.
In trainings you become something new through navigating the Liquid States of leaping away from the known and discovering new territory.
Clearly both Educators and Trainers are needed in a healthy society.
But modern culture promotes education as if knowing the right stuff is everything.
By duplicating the 'already known' human beings terminate life on Earth.
Skills for navigating the unknown are crucial to Inventing humanity's next cultures which are fundamentally regenerative.
If you are trying to deliver Trainings in an educational environment the educational system authorities freak out and will unconsciously do whatever they can to get rid of you.
Trying to deliver Trainings in a gameworld that only wants you to deliver classes is like trying to be a midwife in an old people's home...
...not very appropriate.
Perhaps you have been serving as an Educator but your true calling is to serve as a Trainer.
If that is your situation, you might want to change the gameworld in which you are playing...
Gaia is desperately in need of Trainers these days.
How does Possibility Management deliver Archetypal Initiations?
a new question...
One way to understand archetypal initiations is to regard each person as inhabiting 5 Bodies... physical, intellectual, emotional, energetic, and archetypal.
The first four bodies are rather straightforward to make sense of. For example:
The physical body has organs with sensations like smell, touch, taste, color, pressure, sound, vibration, temperature, moisture, and physical pain.
The intellectual body has a mind with ideas, concepts, opinions, beliefs, attitudes, rules, superstitions, constructs, stories, and attention.
The emotional body has a heart with feelings and emotions, and strong mixed emotions such as shame, disgust, jealousy, guilt, aggression, depression, despair, excitement, nostalgia, melancholy, hysteria, etc.
The energetic body senses space, proximity, timing, opportunity, coordination, balance, ownership, etc.
Modern culture teaches us to identify ourselves with the intellectual and physical bodies, educating and feeding them far out of proportion to the emotional and energetic bodies.
But what happens when you educate and train your emotional and energetic bodies to a more balanced internal collaboration?
(This process, by the way, is part of Inner Permaculture... much of the beginning work in Possibility Management is Inner Permaculture.)
What happens is that the four bodies become a stable platform upon which the Fifth Body (your Archetypal Body) automatically wakes up and comes online.
You have 5 Bodies. As you enter AuthenticAdulthood, your Archetypal Body starts breathing to life a new world for you, a wider world, a multi-dimensional world... with new perceptions, new discernments, new powers, and new responsibilities. It is no wonder that Hollywood is pumping out superhero movies these days. The human race is preparing itself to welcome Archetypal Bodies.
As you might imagine, it requires significant preparations to ready yourself for being intimate with another person in your Archetypal Body...
But when you are fit... your readiness does something astonishing, nearly inexplicable. It makes life worth living. It makes all the other bodies and life experiences fit into place in a way that makes a whole new level of sense. It opens a mysterious gateway to vast domains for exploration, enjoyment, fulfillment, and wonder.
You're right... this does not actually answer the question, "How does Possibility Management deliver archetypal initiations?"
Hmmm... what this information does do, however, is hopefully inspire you to directly experience the answers to that question yourself.
It can help if you get into Possibility Labs where you can Stellate your Four Feelings. (Stellate means to turn up to an archetypal level of intensity.) Each successful Stellating process activates one of the four character structures in your archetypal body (Warrioress/Warrior through archetypal anger, Lover through archetypal sadness,
Sorceress/Magician through archetypal fear, and Queen/King through archetypal joy).
QUESTIONER: Long story short: I am getting flashes of how PM is building an army. The strongest perception of it was during the Gaia Villages introductory call, when suddenly I had this vision of armies rising with a lot of force and power.
Since then, I find evidence that tries to convince me that this story could be true.
I feel fear mainly because I have a long history of not trusting my perceptions that 'don't make sense'. And I fear I will invalidate myself again. And that my discernment has still to grow so I can read through illusions.
On the other hand, I don't know how to continue relating to PM if my conclusion is true. I do not want to be in an army without my consent. I Thank you that this is a safe place where I can ask such things.
RESPONSE: Thank you for being willing to be vulnerable with your perceptions. What I can tell you is that I am personally not interested in building an army. An army would have the purpose to fight against something or someone. I have no intention to fight against anyone. Fighting against someone would mean that I would consider them my enemy.
I try to pay very close attention to when I make anyone my enemy, because that is just my Gremlin making up stories to avoid connection, love and evolution.
What I am interested in is to build something new, a next culture, that is actually invisible to the forces that could want to attack it. Next Culture is invisible because the current armies (military, corporate, advertisement, religious, etc...) cannot even imagine that such a thing is possible.
The second purpose usually of an army is to create copy-cat soldiers, that will obey orders blindly without any form of critical thinking or emotional awareness. I hope it is obvious that I am also not interested in giving orders to anyone. I want to be with Beings with liberated potential and who are ecstatically being their potential.
What I also know or observe is that is it very usual (I would say almost inevitable) that when people meet PM and especially when they start holding space for PM distinctions/processes, there is a sense of fanaticism: "this is the right way, or people need to know about this, if they don't understand feeling I cannot talk to them, etc..." I remember when I was like this. In my experience, it takes a few months, maybe a year for people to grow enough into their own selves. Their Beings then realize that their fanaticism is just another religion and that Clarity can ultimately create more separation than evolution. I have found no way to go around this. I consider this a natural evolution of relationship with any context, including PM.
I am glad that in that regards, PM is very clear about centering and keeping your center, even (especially!) from PM. Otherwise, how can anyone discover new things or evolve the thoughtmaps in PM if they don't have their center? Sometimes, it takes that people go away from the gameworld of PM for a while to regain their center.
Something else that has helped me along the way is to distinguish between my Feelings, for example my Fear and the perceptions that emerges from my Fear. My perceptions are often stories that make sense to my relationship to the world. My perceptions can easily slip into conclusions: it is like this.
I have noticed in myself that conclusions usually take me out of relationship with the world. One way that I worked with that is that I had to live in this question: How can I take care of myself (meaning not be adaptive, or naïve, or letting myself be abused) without making a conclusion and still being in connection?
What I have found is that my Fear is my biggest ally in doing so. I keep listening to my Fear: "Hello Fear, what do you have for me?" The first distinction that I make is: is this a Feeling or an Emotion? Maybe there is both an Emotional fear and also a Feeling of fear. I can use both, because Emotions are for healing things, and Feelings are for handling things. My Feeling of fear might tell me: "You need to ask this question," or, "Here is a proposal you can make for the Team to work better," or, "I want to try this," etc...
The second distinction that I make is: Where does my sensation stop and my story-making begin? Sometimes the mechanism seems pretty clear that my perception starts (I notice something...) then I instantly pull up a Story that matches my Box's Survival Strategy, and then I feel an Emotion as a way to prove to myself that my Story is actually true! (How can a Story be true?)
Does your Fear tell you something else to ask or propose or try?
I am glad that you opened this door. Thinking about this helped me shift from needing to trust my Stories (the meaning that I apply to my sensations as way to have some familiar ground to stand on) into relying on the intelligence of my Conscious Fear.
QUESTIONER: What is relevant for me is especially the distinction between my feelings and my perception of feelings. This type of perception, paranoia type, is something that is familiar to me and it gets activated when I move too fast for my own sanity. It is helpful to see it as a protection mechanism and not give power to the stories it produces, but to receive its message. Maybe I may need to care for myself by having a slower rhythm.
Since it is something that has occurred for me before and it gets activated when I reach a certain threshold of fear, there is the emotional fear that I need to look into with the help of an EHP.
I am glad we could share about it, what happens for me now is that I have the experience of 'normalizing' what in previous times has been judged as 'crazy'. I get to experience that paranoia has no longer the same grip and power over me since I look at it as just another survival mechanism.
My feeling of fear has nothing else for me at the moment.
Thank you for taking a clear Stand for what you are doing.
