What's your role? Network Creator (NC) or Admin?
I was on Ning as part of the Boundless Living Challenge created by Bob Dole. I recently migrated to Ning, along with many, many others, from Gaiam's closing down of independent Gaia on-line community. I have a 30+ year background in metaphysical teachings and practice. I brought my Living Metaphysics Group (originally created at Zaadz/Gaia and up to 400 members in less than 3 years) to Ning in late March 2010.
