Reflections from Monday May 22, 2006 of Evolutionary Salon 3
Yesterday was a very full day, with rich conversations and interactions unfolding. A couple of Open Space sessions, while not fully engaging the collective as I have experienced it, were very fertile learning grounds for many in the group. The thread of conversation unfolded and a field, even with dissonance, took form. So it seemed to me the process of building the field for true inquiry into the Middle was progressing within the greater salon.

As I continue to reflect upon and integrate our time together in Moving the Edge, more questions are arising. I realized this morning that I, you, we, have this collective who can access and share in this ongoing inquiry. So I pose the question:
What is the role of the personal in our learning and training in building this container for collective intelligence?
During our time together there were several times when very personal feelings of sadness, of inner pain, of struggle, of fear,were shared. If these feelings are present in the "field", so to speak, is this process a necessary one to bring us more to a place of wholeness, of trust, of oneness? I ask this because I noticed that we did not access the Middle, when these feelings were being expressed. It was when we moved beyond, beyond any personal feelings, into something greater than ourselves, that the Middle spoke. Is there a ways to get there, to that perspective of something beyond self, without going through the doorway of pain and sadness and fear held in the group?

The Moving the Edge gathering and the other salons and cafes that have emerged in the last year can be seen as a learning environment. They are an exploration in how to evolve our co-intelligence, how to speak from the Middle, how to lean in and listen to the CircleBeing, how to be together in authenticity as individuals who express the imagination and voice of a collective being that is seeking to know itself and to evolve.
I am new to this blogging way of communication, but it is time to move that edge too. I started once, and am not sure where it went. What follows are my reflections as I journeyed from Aarhus to the US. It was a time when a lot was still dropping in, so to speak. And this process continues. I share this as a way to continue to energize the field, to hold ongoing conversation and share insights, to spart new insights, to enhance clarification, to continue to move the edge of conscious evolution. Sorry for the length of this. I suspect blogging is better in more precise nuggets. I hope others will share their thoughts as they too move with what continues to be known and revealed. read more »
