To Activate Group Effort


  • Pen
  • White paper bowl
  • Magnet
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Wooden spoon
  • Holy water

Write the names of those people involved in your project on the inside bottom of a white paper bowl without spaces between the names. Write the name of the project underneath.

Place the magnet in the bowl along with a handful of sunflower seeds on top of the magnet.

With a clean wooden spoon, stir the seeds twenty-one times, visualizing everyone working together and having fun. As you stir, say:
"Become one, be one."

If, over time, the group starts to pull apart or someone is not doing what they are supposed to do, repeat the stirring process along with the chant. When the project is finished, scatter the sunflower seeds outdoors, burn the bowl, and cleanse the magnet with holy water or moonlight.
