Emergent 'WE-SPACE'

To Transform Our World

 

 

Join a Café

Want to create an elevated impact in the world?

  • Are you a healer, 'light-worker,' coach, or leader that feels the call to serve humanity?
  • Do you want to expand your influence and impact, co-creating with like-hearted souls?
  • Are you longing for a highly emergent "WE SPACE" that has the capacity to generate deep and expansive insights and ideas that can transform our world?
Join a Café to catch a glimpse into a WE-SPACE of possibility!

If you are spiritually aware, an intuitive healer or coach, you've likely experienced synchronicity, and a sense of KNOWING beyond what you could know. You Know the power of this emergent 'space' to generate insights, answers and meaning beyond normal comprehension. What would it be like to enter and expand this 'Emergent Space' with others, in a common purpose.

If we can SEE IT, then we can BE IT!

These Cafés are opportunities to deeply connect, Dialogue, and learn as we invite the emergent future to guide us in greater service to humanity. This is a co-creative, collaborative space where we will notice what wants to come into our awareness, and together, open a field of possibility that goes beyond what we could individually create. We will explore the magnificence of WE.

For the Café, there is no homework, and no agenda - just a simple process that will allow us to notice what wants to emerge into our awareness. Using the Bohmian Dialogue method, we'll practice and develop four core capacities that are important in opening the We-Space. These practices are Suspending, Respecting, Voicing and Listening.

Let's usher in a new realm of possibility! Let's use our gifts to SEE & BE!

Change-Maker Café Schedule

Start off by coming to one Café, just to get a taste of the experience! Then, if you like the first taste, come again as often as you can, because it just gets better and better as you go deeper and deeper into the WE-Space with others. That's when the real magic starts to happen!

Richard Schultz

Richard is all about 'being the change' that we want to see in the world - both inner and outer. For the last 20+ years, he has studied, taught and developed ways to create change from the inside - out. These inner change technologies include how to quickly change limiting subconscious beliefs and for even more powerful inner shifts, how to do shadow integration to become 'whole 'again.  Richard's shadow integration technology is actually done through a powerful inner dialogue process that heals past inner wounds and traumas through forgiveness. 

Richard has also studied and worked with organizations and communities around change for over 20 years. This work includes teaching and facilitating using whole-person meeting technologies such as Open Space Technology and Genuine Contact™ as well as working with purpose and values alignment.

Richard has a passion for peace. He has helped hundreds of individuals overcome challenges to find more inner peace and has facilitated many groups such as Rotarians to organize themselves to create more peace in the world. In 2020, he co-created and facilitated a Peace Leaders group in Moncton, Canada to reach the goal of becoming an International City of Peace. He also co-created and facilitated Peace Cafés in the Moncton area and online. Essentially, these Bohm Dialogues are the next step in the evolution of the Peace Cafés!

To reach the depth of learning, understanding and shared meaning that can come from Dialogue, it is important to have enough time and an open, inviting meeting environment. For teams and complex relationships/situations, it is beneficial for the groups to continue meeting on a regular basis for weeks, months or even years, expanding their capacity to think together, trust, and collaborate. Dialogue becomes core to an agile, creative way of working together.

The agenda for a Bohm Dialogue tends to be very simple.

1. Welcome: The Dialogue host welcomes participants, explains the Dialogue practices and shared agreements (such as confidentiality) and invites participants into agreement. If there is a subject or theme for the dialogue, this is clarified.

Participants will generally be invited to sit in a circle and often use a "talking object" to honor and respect the relationship between speaker and listener without interruption. 

2. Check-in: Each participant does a brief 'check-in,' introducing themselves if necessary, and 'what is moving or present within them.' This could be a feeling/emotion, and observation, an issue, an opportunity, a question or an experience. Each participant gets about 1 minute for this.

3. Flow: An open Dialogue continues, taking its lead from what emerged in the check-in. Participants follow the flow of the conversation, noticing what they have energy for or what learning, theme or focus is emerging as they speak, listen, think and sense together. 

4. Closing: A final round or 'check-out' is conducted where everyone gets an opportunity to briefly share their experience, and what they learned or are taking away from the experience.

The Bohm Dialogue Practices

Participants are invited to agree to 'practices' for the dialogue. It is a 'practice', because most of us are not skilled in dialogue and fall into old polarizing habits. Together, we will develop our capacity for open dialogue but at times we will get off track, notice this, and come back into the practice. For example, consider the practice of meditation, where your mind may spin off into thinking until you notice this and pull yourself back into watching your breath.  Our four Bohm Dialogue practices are:

1. SUSPENDING: Letting go of assumptions, beliefs or certainty about things and opening up to other possibilities, viewpoints, experiences or ideas. This is not about convincing others of your views, but with curiosity, attempting to connect and understand them, and in the process, knowing yourself too.

2. RESPECTING: Seeing and respecting the humanity in others and relating with empathy and compassion to their life journey. By seeing them, you may see yourself more clearly too.

3. VOICING: Discovering your authentic voice and trusting it. This is not about saying something clever or wise. It is about noticing the call within you to speak, or to just respectfully listen and notice that others might be saying exactly what you wanted to say. Speak about only one important idea at a time, rather than talking about all the run-on thoughts arising in you. Less is more.  If you or someone is dominating the conversation, notice this and find a way to come back into balanced dialogue.

4. LISTENING: Listen with all your senses and intuition, to the whole person behind the words. You will be listening far more than speaking. With curiosity, hear the tone, cadence, pitch, pauses, movements, meaning, energy, emotions, values and intentions of the speakers. Be present to the beauty and richness of the silent moments too.
