Welcome to the March 2016 issue of Enlivening Edge!
Our attention grows ever more fragmented, in response to so many life and work interests and priorities vying for the limited quantity of our precious attention. When that happens, we can use use the situation as a reminder to  pause and bring our attention back into where we are undivided. That place of wholeness is pregnant with more options for making wiser decisions than the fragmented place is. Those options are ours just for the price of learning to manage our attention, individually and as teams and organizations.
Spring is a good time to celebrate wholeness, so the March issue of EE celebrates wholeness! We offer it to you as a bouquet of spring flowers freshly collected from the field and full of colors.

The “we” is over 35 authors who contributed to the over 45 articles since our January issue, and the “we” is also the team producing this newsletter and the online EE magazine (that the “Read more” links point to).

If you are curious, you can find out more about what’s happening in and around Enlivening Edge, in the Editorial of this issue, here.
From our news section
Our biggest news is the first international gathering of the movement of “next-stage” organizations, which will take place in Teal Organizations track of the Integral European Conference, in Hungary, May 4-8. A team from EE has the honor to curate the track’s program, and we are super-excited about its 30+ workshops and presentations on the menu. Needless to say, we want to connect with as many of you there, in person, as possible. Be present at this gathering and before then, spread the word about the “Teal tribe” coming home on the shore of beautiful Lake Balaton.
