We had such a deep and profound meeting last month that we are going to continue with the same theme this month: exploring different levels of conversations.

Last month we introduced four levels of conversations described by Otto Scharmer's book, Theory U:

  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
  4. Presencing—Speaking from what is moving through (Essential emergence)

We are going to experiment further with the contrast between the conversations in which we find ourselves most of the time (Field 1 & 2) and the deeper conversations where we come from different consciousness. We will explore how Debate and Dialogue are different (Field 2 & 3), and also what it is like to collectively tap into "the best possible future that wants to emerge" (Field 4).

It is not necessary for you to have attended the last month's gathering to come to this meeting. We will introduce Theory U again, and spend more time experiencing with deeper level of conversations. Hope you will join our continuing exploration of how conscious conversations could change the world.
