June Holley and The Art of Being Rhizomatic (The Practice of Network Weaving)

June urged us not to think narrowly about Network Weaving as a specific job description, but rather as a role. “You don’t hire someone to be a network weaver. You want someone who is open to learning and a good listener and can teach others network weaving skills. You want to spread the capacity throughout the network.” You extend networking weaving skills by using a peer learning model not a traditional training model.

June Holley used the metaphor of “Being Rhizomatic” and explains it as where every bud contains the nourishment for other buds. She used an image of a single tree. A single tree can be cut down or die from lack of water. But in a bamboo forest (a unique rhizome) — the trees are connected through the roots and if one tree gets nutrients and supports others.
