LifeCamp 2009 quarterly checkin Q1 at Port Zero


LifeCamp is a BarCamp-style yet intimate (perhaps that makes it more FooCamp-style ;) discussion/gathering that focuses on the question:


What are you doing with your life?


This will be a chance to connect and check-in with fellow LifeCampers2008PortZero attendees, and reflect and celebrate your successes and opportunities for improvement.


This is third in a series of several quarterly check-ins for those that attended LifeCamp2008PortZero. What if I did not attend? See FAQ.


This is a continuation of an experiment in progress.




The attendees of LifeCamp2007PortZero decided that it would be good to have a once a quarter one day check-in to see how we are doing with regards to the topics we had discussed. The nature of a check-in, based on a common understanding established at the previous event, and the limited time nature (one day only) thus compels us to restrict attendees to those who attended LifeCamp2007PortZero.


Upcoming: http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/2117113/



  • When: 2009-03-29 10am-6pm.
  • Food: potluck brunch, but bring your own snacks! Experience has shown that it really helps to have snacks to make it through the day. I strongly recommend bringing a sufficient supply of whatever snack foods you prefer to get you through the day.

  • Capacity: probably 10ish max
  • Rooms: 2-3 rooms to encourage a variety of discussions (though experience shows that one primary discussion is likely to take place at any given time)

Past Reference



What if I did not attend LifeCamp2008PortZero ?


If you did not attend LifeCamp2008PortZero, then consider organizing your own two day LifeCamp (feel free to borrow topics, planning etc. from LifeCamp2008PortZero) with a few others close to your location. It helps to find folks you think will feel comfortable sharing and supporting each other with regards to the topics that LifeCamp discusses. Feel free to contact the organizers of LifeCamp2007PortZero (Tantek and Julie) for guidance, tips, and suggestions.
