Connected conversations to heal and enliven our world.

By uniting and discovering our collective wisdom, we can solve the many systemic problems we have historically and are presently creating. Our future is dependent on us wisely working together, as one human community, knowing that we are interdependent on one another. It is in the unification of our spirit, intelligence, passion, power and actions that we can make necessary movement(s) for our world.

What conversation and movement do you want to create or co-create?

Where is your passion calling you to make a contribution or change?

For example; finding new ways to resolve or eliminate:

  • Blaming, shaming, racism, violence and judgment
  • Rising religious extremism and terrorism
  • Increasing polarity within politics
  • Widening gaps between rich and poor
  • Tensions created from mass migrations of people in search of  a better life
  • Violence, war or nuclear proliferation
  • Unemployment and under employment
  • Epidemics of drug abuse and addiction
  • Disease, pain and suffering
  • Or a conflict within your own family, business or community?

  

Are you wondering where the solutions are?

Do you want to be part of a movement that creates hope and opportunity?

Join a conversation to develop ideas and actions where you can make a difference!

    Shifting to "The Space Between"

    In our world today, thoughts, opinions and behavior are becoming increasingly polarized. Rather than dialoguing to discover common ground and values that unite us, people attempt to 'convert' others to their side by attacking rather than listening, understanding and working together to find balance and truth.

    Polarity is an illusion. There is no black or white but rather a spectrum of grey. In the space between black and white, there are other possibilities and opportunities. This space between is a place of listening, understanding, releasing, visioning and creating.

    Conversations For Movements aims to open up the 'between spaces' where people can come together and create sustainable solutions for the world. It is a space where we can join with others and take responsibility for the part(s) we can play in change.

      Conversation reaching over the gap

      Imagine an online space with diverse conversations where...

      • People show up and contribute based on their passion and interest for the topic
      • You notice that whomever is there are just the right people for the perfect conversation
      • Multiple breakout sessions on the theme emerge naturally from the group.
      • The curiosity and wisdom involved gets dynamically folded into the conversation
      • Community, connection and networking opportunities just happen
      • You have the personal freedom to manage your energy and time in the meeting
      • There is a high level of trust that whatever happens is the only thing that could
      • You feel a level of connection you seldom experience, even with in-person meetings
      • By at the end of the meeting you get documentation on what everyone has discussed
      • You can do this from the comfort of your own home or office
      • You can't wait until you can participate in such a meeting again!

      Conversations For Movements make all this possible and more!

        Virtual Open Space Technology

         

        Features of a virtual Open Space Technology meeting

         

        Energizing Impactful ConversationParticipants are arranged in a 'virtual' circle to facilitate communication. This is sometimes done by putting names around a circle on a whiteboard or the conversation is facilitated so that everyone gets speak as if it was around a circle. The role of the facilitator is to open the space and to hold the space open. This process acknowledges the potential for leadership in every person.

        The agenda is created by the people present in the virtual conference. Passion and responsibility are the two keys to a successful meeting. Without passion, enthusiasm for an idea will soon wane, and without responsibility, there is risk that the ideas will never move forward.

        There are four principles and one law for conducting an open space technology meeting which enables the participants to stay focused on the event at hand and acknowledges that the wisdom to resolve the issue is present in the room.


         

        Four Principles of Open Space Technology:

        • Whoever comes, are the right people (reinforces that the wisdom to achieve solutions is present in the room and the group is not to worry about who is not present nor to panic about who is)
        • Whatever happens is the only thing that could have (keeps the attention on the best possible effort in the present, not worrying about what we "should have done")
        • Whenever it starts is the right time (reminds people that creativity cannot be controlled)
        • When it is over, it is over (encourages people to continue their discussion so long as there is energy for it. This may result in a short session not filling the entire time allotted, or it may result in a session longer than the time allotted)

         

        The Law of Two Feet (Law of Mobility):

          The Law of Two Feet (also called The Law of Mobility) states that if participants find themselves in situations where they are neither learning anything or contributing anything, they are responsible for moving to another place, for example to another group meeting. The principles and law enable people to participate in ways that are most meaningful to them. They get to take responsibility and contribute according to their passions, talents, skills, curiosity and energy in the best way they can in any moment.

           

          Building the Agenda or 'Marketplace'

          Having explained the process, the facilitator opens the meeting to let the group create the agenda by identifying topics that are important to the individual regarding the theme. The individual puts his or her topic on a 'virtual whiteboard' or Agenda Board along with their name and then announces the topic to the group. There is a means of assigning room spaces and times for the topics that are generated.

          When all the topics are up, everyone goes to this "marketplace of topics" and signs up for the topics of discussion that interest them. The facilitator gets out of the way. The group self-manages the discussions and produces a report of the proceedings at the end of their discussion for all to read.

          The facilitator reconvenes the group as a collective whole at each session's end and if it is a multi-session event, at the beginning and end of each session.  

           

          Closing Circle

          Lastly, there is a closing circle, which further identifies the commitment of participants to the theme and to the future.
