Hosting Conversations about Questions that Matter
You are invited to participate in a Consciousness Deep Dive taking place during the month of June in a variety of in-person and virtual venues, to practice and learn more about the art of being fully human in a time of global crisis.
This Deep Dive is essentially a World Cafe that is being stretched out over space and time, with individual iterations of the conversation happening through June 25 in many venues: some self-organized by anyone who wishes to be a co-host, and others hosted on scheduled Zoom calls using breakouts. It's also OK to have a "small group" conversation using an online platform like this one. There is an online harvesting process for each small group, as well as a set of calls for collective meaning-making on the 26th-28th.
More info and registration (to stay fully in the loop) is here. Details are below as well...
How it Works
The primary venue for the Deep Dive is a set of small group conversations, typically consisting of 3-5 people, just like what would take place at a table during one round of an in-person cafe. You can participate simply by joining one of these, each of which is designed to be valuable in it own right. You can also join multiple rounds as a way to further deepen your personal inquiry and help to cross-pollinate the conversation as a whole.
Collectively, these small group sessions will contribute to shared meaning-making and learning via a "harvest" process that uses some simple Google forms. The goal is for 20 or more of these conversations to take place between now and June 25. Then from the 26th-28th there will be a series of (optional) large group calls to bring people together from across the various groups.
There are several ways that you can join a small group conversation:
