I am not sure anyone is happy with their consensus process! It is challenging 
and exhilarating at the same time. 

At your point, remembering what you are there for and creating trust, 
connection and safety with each other is most important. I am glad to talk to 
you offline if you want. You can reach me through my website below.

Have a great community!
