There are no leaders or primadonnas here. Please leave all ego trips in Babylon. This is a place where folks come together to heal the Family. There are senior CALM healers, who by their history and their experience, can serve as role models and teachers for the less experienced workers. If you are new to working at CALM, it is best to consult with these folks as often as possible. Often one of the more experienced healers will take novices under his/her wing in an apprenticeship relationship.

Just because someone comes into a CALM unit and says that he/she is an MD, it doesn’t mean that the MD can call the shots. Attitude matters. Cooperation matters. CALM Council has asked certain MD s to change their behavior because they did not properly respect the CALM approach to healing.

Like in all of Rainbow, the council is the governing body of CALM. Ideally CALM councils daily. Here issues, concerns and treatment strategies are discussed. People seek feedback and suggestions on difficult cases. Requests for specific supplies are made and a list is given to the supply crew. If there are sanitation problems at a specific kitchen, ways of dealing with that kitchen are discussed. CALM Council selects the healers who have authority to determine who gets transferred to the hospital. If there is a concern that someone who is working at CALM is not dealing with various patients in an appropriate way, these issues are brought up at the Council. Sometimes a separate council needs to be called if the behavior of a specific worker warrants special attention.

CALM traditionally has had the authority to call for the shutting down of an unclean kitchen. If the decision is made to shut down a kitchen, Shanta Sena is informed, and CALM members, along with Shanta Sena, deal with the kitchen.

CALM Council also has the authority to tell a specific healer that he/she must either change his/her behavior or that he/she can no longer work at CALM if it is seen that his/her practice is unsafe or he/she behaves in an inappropriate way with specific populations.
