Learning from Africa - Deep Democracy

The question "What can we learn from India?" was a question that I brought back from my stay in India in 2004. Soon after, the little sister question was born: "What can we learn from Africa?"

Last week-end, I had the opportunity to learn from the Deep Democracy (DD) training that developed in South Africa based on Arnold Mindell's work.

Connecting to Deep Democracy

Why was this Deep Democracy training within the Hub Summer School calling me to Rotterdam?

Deep Democracy has been on my radar since I joined Pioneers of Change approx. 5 years ago. When Myrna Lewis offered to host a training in Hub Berlin a few months back, there were not enough participants to make the training happen.

Nuggets of learning about the new story
