WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE INQUIRE DEEPLY TOGETHER
INTO LEARNING, COMMUNITY & POSSIBILITY?
You are invited to be part of a gathering to celebrate and share what we have experienced in our lives and work around profound shift and to harvest the insights we find together. We will share stories, insights and practice in a collective inquiry into the simplicity of what happens next.
This is a time of profound shifts. All around us people have been inquiring into new ways of being. From the great upheaveal of the Arab Spring to the sitting still in place around the Occupy movements, from thinktanks to the blogosphere, from natural disasters to manmade crisis, it has been a time of earthquakes, inner shakes and new beginnings. Those of us who are dedicated to the art of being human together through practices like Art of Hosting, World Café, Open Space, Appreciative Inquiry, Deep Democracy, Presencing, Dynamic Facilitation, narrative and art forms and many other ways of working have been gathering experience and wondering about the future of humanity. We’ve been wondering what comes next both for our world and our work.
Whenever this much change is happening, it is good to take time to pause together for long enough for something to appear. We are calling an international learning village to meet in exploration and celebration together. We want to touch back to the source of our work and our inspiration, to be in the flow together, to drop into “the river beneath the river”. We are inviting practitioners from all disciplines and practices to share their insight and their practice in a space of co-created learning. The gathering is being called by the Art of Hosting community, but everyone is invited. It is being hosted by a Core Team of practitioners and our intention is to live mostly in Open Space for our time together to co-create our experience.
Will you join us? Please save the date. Further information about the logistics of this gathering is on the way. We will send other materials in preparation for the gathering as they arise.
