Play is a deceptively simple yet powerfully transformative activity. It happens in an atmosphere of high appreciation and low expectation, where time slows down by the virtue of being present in our bodies and present to each other. In this new found spaciousness—stress and our conditioned reactivity is held and we can be open, curious and playful. In essence we can be truly creative and experience ourselves as storytellers, dancers and poets—creators, not just consumers of art.In playing together with what is given we open to meet the urgency and uncertainty of our times in a new way. We pause, breathe, not-know and respond from what is present. We create future, rather than just repeating the past.

'The Golden Middle' - facilitating for consensus with Scott Newton | Mon September 14 | 5:00pm (Zoom opens at 4.45pm)
How do we view compromise? Is it a disappointing result? A loss? A failure of conviction or commitment to our position? Or something else?
The Polish concept of ‘compromise’ roughly translates to “the golden middle”. What if, in today’s world of polarisation and tribalism, we embraced conflicting views and used them to shape a considered, compromised solution to shared problems?
In this session, we will explore and share methods and tools for building empathy for the ‘other’, exploring trade-offs and building consensus in meetings and workshops in-person and online.

Facilitating for Sustainability with Lina Mbirkou | Mon April 20th | 5:30pm SHARP (Zoom opens at 5:00pm)
For some, it’s about keeping the delicate ecosystems of our planet in balance, and in that context, our role as facilitators might be to keep up-skilling to hold the increasingly complex conversations to address the wicked problems of our times.
For others, the meaning of sustainability is to remain in business and profitable in the short, medium and long term. In the current context of physical distancing due to the Coronavirus, this manifests through an acute need for better virtual meetings to maintain connection and productivity. However, increasingly flexible working patterns and debates over business air travel mean the demand for remote collaboration is likely to only increase in the long term and require us as facilitators to find ways to adapt to market needs.
There could also be a deeper meaning linked to self-sustainability and the inner place from which we, as facilitators operate to remain resilient when we are surrounded by confusion, chaos and complexity…
