Hi dear Agota...

The DunaDialogues sound absolutely amazing and I would love to learn more.

I'm also excited by the Hungarian translation of the TWC book and send my fondest regards to our colleagues in this group here on the on-line community.

With warm best wishes,

We are in the process to translate TWC book finally into Hungarian and we would appreciate contribution and ideas both in making it happen and allow it to reach all target groups who already practice TWC one way or another.  Our core inspiration is to offer the genuine source to a method that has spread so much in our region and may need deeper practice and inquire from practitioners as well...

Since my last message we had 2  great DunaDialogues again. One was last year early december at Hotel Rosinante on the Szentendre island where we prepared our cooperation and connections based on the inspirational energies that we gain from M.Gimbutas' writings about the partnership spirit of Old Europe where a practice of a social network for eons had a strong place in human interactions: non violent, cultivation and not production based, partnership and non dominancy focused cooperation...

later this year in 2013 June we continued to develop and enhance the process focusing on eco-social enterprises and included dunavision project as well... and this november on the 15-16th we will move into a more focued Danupartnership dialogue where we may want to join our efforts based on shared intent and diverse practices.  TWC is the best of what we can offer as a core approach still...

Last Saturday, 8 of us from HU, Austria, Croatia and Slovenia had our 1st small group-design gathering to see into-inquire how we may want to proceed in collaborating, sharing and acting together in a Dialoguic Space where the Flow of the Danube connects us in our past as well as inspires us into a future yet to emerge.

Hallo friends of TWC of Hungary,

I would love to hear some of our TWC related events we have had in the recent past. I know some of you did have a few. i start with mine: i was invited to two university conferences, onon Sustainability in Pécs, the other on Learning-Knowledges and Ecenomy. At both of this events I offered a talk on Social-Soul ( an expression of Sandor Karacsony in the mid 20th century ) and developing CI: Theory and Practice, where I based my meaning on TWC and Dialogue principles... well received, yet a controversial situation to be given 20 minutes to TALK ABOUT processes that offer their depth and meaning by doing together with others. This gap I experience at traditional conferences where they have the need for a talk like this but cannot make space for experiencing it, the only resolution I had was to use active imagination...strange though.
There is going to be an other event, at the Companies for a Sustainable World in May with Piac&Profit, that we have been doing in the past 5 years where there is some vain opportunity to raise awareness in this field. Agota

Dear Friends,

Last week i had the opportunity to participate in and contributre to a 2 day conference at the Pécs University on Sustainbility and my theme was Caring for the Social-soul, ( Karacsony Sandor ) and developing collective intelligence as a core process inherent in the theory and practice of sustainability. The strangeaspect of the talk was that I was supposed to share my ideas as a lecture in 15 minutes in the afternoon of the 2nd day soon after two wonderful talks by Ervin Laszlo,and then Günther pauli. I personally felt full, and using systems dynamics law, just neededsome negative feedback to balance all that is in me and I assumed the others were in the same situation, so instead of continuing with my wonderfully prepared pp presentation, I called the people into an imaginary field of their mind where they were supposed to raise the most important question that was living in them at the time and then see howfrom the break they would have moved into the hall with theircoffees and drinks and sat at tables of 4-5 people and start sharing and conversing according to what they were having in their inner landscape... I must admit, I had very little time left for the presentation, yet i feel it was perhaps the best way to confront participants with the gap of ournew paradigm and our communication style still so pertinent and stubborn, esp. in academic scenes. I wil have to write the essay anyway in the university publication. imust admit the 2 days VERY inspirative with all the well chosen presenters and varieties, yet just too much... This is how If we are not carefull with the ecologyof the community, we may well start wasting energy both thought and physical level. Agota.
