Margaret Whealey says, "Conversation creates the conditions for us to rediscover the joy of thinking together."

How can we have a rich and rewarding dialogue? What would it be like to be part of a conscious conversation? Could more conscious conversations in our community lead to a better future?

Our gathering this month will be more experiential; we are going to experiment with different levels of conversations based on Otto Scharmer's book, Theory U. Scharmer describes four levels ( he calls "Fields") of conversations as:

  1. Downloading – Speaking from what they want to hear (talking nice)
  2. Debate – Speaking from what I think (talking tough)
  3. Dialogue – Speaking from seeing myself as part of the whole  (reflective inquiry)
  4. Presencing – Speaking from what is moving through (essential emergence)

Join us to practice to become more aware of how we engage each other, and to explore how a conscious conversation could lead to a collective transformation.
