  • Moving Forward Together– Great conversations took place at the recent Global Online Trainer Forum/Summit and now is the time to move into actions and new policies.  Sutra circles for each key issue are being set up in the general trainer space on Sutra –and each of you is encouraged to create additional ones for anything that needs to be added!  Everyone will be invited to these circles, whether or not you were able to make it to the summit.  It is up to every member of the Academy to continue the conversations – on Sutra and/or in online calls – to work towards written proposals (we will create a standard format).  Those proposals will be posted in Sutra for comment and discussion, and then come to TTEC Sept 20, 21, 22 for finalization. 

  • Update on the “Interim” Aquarian Teacher manual – As mentioned previously, we are planning a 2-phase approach to modifying the Level One Aquarian Teacher manual.  Phase One is being done with a priority on speed over inclusivity – with a new version expected to be available digitally in English by mid-August.  Phase Two will then begin to collect more community input for another version in the summer of 2021.  All trainers will be welcome to contribute in Phase Two.  Phase One will include the work that has been ongoing for several years already.  It will mention the investigation by An Olive Branch and will reference its findings.  The Humanology, History, and Posture sections are being completely redone, with every chapter being edited to some extent or another. 

  • Professional Development Committee looking for New Members – As collectively we prepare for the TTEC meetings in September, there is a need for this existing committee to work on the development of trainers in the Academy.  There is work to be done between now and the TTEC meetings 
  • The Report from An Olive Branch will be released this week.  KRI is working to organize a series of zoom calls in every language and every time zone. Are you interested in being a facilitator?  Please email Sadhu Kaur at [email protected].
