The purpose of Vanilla Way is about experiencing, exploring and facilitating collaboration and trust.
To come together as peers who share the passion for transformation in groups of people – whole organisations and movements.
We are a group of changer nerds.
We are committed to walk what we talk.
To dream, create, act, fail and learn and to learn again.
Fascinated by the possibilities of facilitation – a way of leadership.
Coming together and exploring these topics as peers
leads to the beautiful and essential effect of incubating our values around collaboration and trust in each Vanilla Way members individual life and project.
Our work as external consultant matters to us – reach out is crucial, our own life though is the place where we can birth and incubate our vision,
where we can go deep down to the ground of what we actually dare to and dare not to do.
What ever connects us ARE our shared DREAMS.

And this is how the story goes:
The hermit explores sense and meaning with the newcomer, like if the newcomers‘ practical life-philosophy is compatible. Do their values flow into the community: Is there a shared perspective? How does the newcomer look at life, trust, collaboration, evolution? The hermit knows how to explore purpose and values of others. Hermits also give guidance for questions regarding Vanilla Way.
The mother traditionally will wash the newcomer. It means she will see him naked. It means to be sure there are no secrets hidden from past action, projects, affairs. What brings him*her*them to us? Are there on both sides secrets that are important to be revealed before committing to each other?
The bear traditionally enjoyes teasing and play-fighting the newcomer. The bear will provoke. The bear wants to be sure, that he*she*they know that on earth there is love and harmony and there is challenge and pain, too. The world is always moving. The bear makes sure the newcomer brings some sort of resilience and is open to build resilience, too. Does the newcomer feel ready to be an active, anchored, dynamic member in the position of facilitating change itself?
The winemaker finally will verify the joyfulness in the new comer. The winemaker will take the newcomer to a party – in whatever way newcomer and winemaker understand what a party means. Living joyfully a life is a healthy sign. It’s a great thank you of trying this journey together. The winemaker and the newcomer are celebrating life together.
…so, dear newcomer, are you ready to meet the mother, hermit, bear and winemaker and to begin this adventure?
