Purpose: To access open and deep dialogue through the lens of a another voice.
1. Select a "third thing" for the session
You are welcome to bring a piece that reaches you and is alive for you right now.
It could be passage from a poetic, philosophy or spiritual text - not longer than about half a page.
It could also be a piece of music, a video, or an artwork.
2. Select, read, marinade, still, share
When you meet, choose together which text you'll use.
If either person feels triggered then choose something else.
Read aloud together, switching each line/paragraph/stanza - if you wish. If it's not text, each person can explore the music/video/art piece in their own way for a period of time.
Then take 2 minutes of timed stillness to connect with intuition.
Each partner has 3-5 minutes (timed) to share personal responses - images, feelings, gestures. You may also share how it relates to your life.
Enjoy 15-20 minutes of timed generative dialogue about and its relation to what wants to the emergence of planetary era qualities.
The idea for this mission came from Chapter 6 of Parker Palmer's beautiful book, "A Hidden Wholeness."
