Welcome! Jon Ramer's Page

A little about me...

I am one of the local organizer for Compassionate Seattle.  We are focusing on deepening the work we are doing on the ground in our region and growing the online network and connecting each others cities, towns and villages through the International Institute for Compassionate Cities.   I am a co-founder of a B Corp (private enterprise for public benefit)  Ideal Network that is collaborative commerce for a values based marketplace.

Please make the Compassionate Action Network  your online home for all things reated to compassionate action.  We want to serve as a resource hub to support peer to peer connections, small group organizing, and large scale collaborations. 

Share with us your gifts. We can use these tools to pool our collective resources and wisdom.

Communities need the will as well as the way. Co-creating a social network reminds you that just a few people can make a real big difference. I look forward to working with you on creating a compassionate future! Please reach out to invite others and continue to contribute to the network.

To learn more here is a paper I co-authored with Hereditary Chief Phil Lane Jr. on Deep Social Networks and the Digital Fourth Way .

This afternoon, I met with the principal of the Middle School, and 4 eighth grade core students.  We all agreed to meet Wednesdays after school weekly for an hour.  The young people and I did some brainstorming on how they could spread and encourage Compassion in their school, and how to achieve a high level of visibility.  The youngsters will think it over until we meet again (officially starting in February, but I will see some in church).

We began on areas they saw that needed improvement in Compassionate action.

We discussed attracting "buy-in" among their fellow students. (Compassionate Kid of the Week - for each grade - posted and announced over the intercom - a "mug shot" of a Kid of the Month)

I also offered the idea of working into the community.  (It is a bit divided, as it has grown rapidly)  The Middle School serves as a gathering place for many community functions.  We need to approach the Town Council to remind them of their commitment to the Charter for Compassion. (It has been cast aside, and forgotten)

We've only just begun, but there is a lot of energy and talent to tap.

Looking around the entry area of the school, I got a lot of ideas on expanding on posted items:

* Bear Awareness (discouraging foraging bears) * Energy Conservation * Africa (I'm planning a trip to Kenya, and have a connection with a teacher there) * Honor Roll postings (we spoke of tutoring/mentoring fellow students) * Pen Pals (with Compassionate City fellows?)

I will meet with the principal again early next week.

I would love to get a thread going somehow, bouncing ideas around here.

I don't see how to do it on my page.

Jon, I am planning to teach my next Compassion Cultivation Training class in February.  I was wondering if this could be posted on the Compassionate Seattle website.

I am now a certified instructor and want to keep sharing this valuable information.

Thanks for considering.

Thank you Jon - looking forward to the new year!

I could use some help navigating this site - it looks a lot like Facebook, which I won't use because it takes up too much time with no benefit.

I am meeting the Middle School Principal face to face for the first time tomorrow night at a Boy Scout meeting , where he is pitching an Eagle Project - we will arrange a meeting to structure the Compassionate Kids Club
