Summarising the chat we had recently, and what I can remember came out of it:
an umbrella structure (under the Praxorium banner) of ‘idea cafe’-style small online meetings, organised on a regular basis, for ‘members’ (we didn’t really discuss this in huge detail, but when I talk of members I’m thinking of people registered as interested in joining calls and are part of an online ‘hub’, perhaps on FB/LI or here, which will serve as a place for discussion and to share information on the online meetings coming up etc.
each online meeting will be kept at a max of 4/5 people.
there can be unlimited numbers of online meetings happening each time, meaning we can have an unlimited number of ‘members’ in the umbrella structure.
suggested online meeting subjects could be suggested by hub facilitators and members and then people could vote on which subjects they want, or perhaps join the call that interests them if members simply go ahead and set up a call on a subject that interests them.
who is already registered for a specific online meeting will be available to see, so we can choose not to join a meeting if we don’t feel OK with someone already signed up, and we can withdraw if someone joins after us that we don’t feel OK with (we discussed an intimacy ‘rating’ system but on reflection I’m not sure this is needed if it shows who is already registered for a call and shares who signs up to the people already signed up).
members of each call could decide each time if they want the call recorded, recorded and shared publicly, or not.
*by having small-sized calls under one banner (which therefore allows for an unlimited number of members), this could enable us to have truly diverse voices from all around the world, with a huge range of experience, wisdom, approach, knowledge etc.

I’m still up for this 100% but I woke up this morning realising that while this sounds great, it doesn’t seem to match my current craving for an intimate, trusted group that I have regular calls with, who can deeply know me and what’s going on in my life, and who I can get to know deeply. I’d like to be part of an intimate group that talk regularly, for whatever individuals/the group needs as we need it. Perhaps 7 or 8 people, so that each call ideally has at least 4 or 5 members each time. A place of truly knowing each other and building a strong community.
Being part of a truly diverse field AND an intimate, long-term group feels ‘whole’ right now so putting out there that I’m up for both.
