May I also draw the List's attention to the latest program by Peter and
Trudy Johnson-Lenz, which will commence March 1996 and run for 5 months.
It is called:

An on-line community of Inquiry and Practice: Meaning and Wholeness in the
Virtual Workplace.

It will be restricted to 50 participants and will run on R4 of Lotus
