If we had to pick a few central themes of our studies at Regis University, this would be one of them. Not that we want to credit Nissan Corporation with innovative thinking in this area. But they have marketed a concept that has been very meaningful to us in our time at Regis and a concept that forms the theme of this Comprehensive Project. Let us explain. Early in our studies at Regis, we went through the "Futures Invention" process with David Thomas. This was and is a wonderful process that encourages the participants to dream dreams in various time frames and then to begin to move toward the dreams. The process is designed to minimize barriers and constraints in the movement process and to emphasize a "can do" mentality. F or us the process was critical. To set the stage, let us explain that we had enrolled in the MACL program out of a sense of discontent and a vague desire to work together in some capacity. We believed that we were being called in a new life direction that was yet to be identified. All that we knew for sure was that things could not continue as they were especially as regarded Ed's job. We invested our time, energy and financial resources in the Regis MACL program with the firm belief that we would be guided on our journey and that direction would be given.
