Hosting Conversations about Questions that Matter
Hello to all of you!
The European Salon is continuing to evolve. We are going to host our 3rd meeting in Eggensbach, near Nürnberg at www.auf-nach-egensbach.de January 12 -15, 2012.
With the title:
»Dialogue and Leadership - Action Learning for Emerging Communities«
In the midst of our rapidly changing and challenging environments, our awareness of a complex and interdependent world is growing. Communities themselves are evolving: We are entering a new phase of community with rules, roles and opportunities for individuals and groups never seen before. How are we shaping the communities we live in and how are they shaping us?
How can we best engage body, mind, soul and spirit to take wise decisions in the face of uncertainty on individual and collective levels? How can we build on the experience and good practice that is taking place already in businesses and societies around the globe? What might be our local contribution in shaping our world in a way to be a great place to live for all and for future generations to come?
We invite you: Members and leaders of economical, political, cultural and spiritual communities who are willing to share their experiences, inspire each other and explore together how best to engage Action Learning for Emerging Communities!
Your active participation is key – your questions, your wisdom, your perspectives! We provide an opportunity for slowing down to speed up – through mindful action inquiry, deep listening to (y)our questions and stories, experiential learning, dialogue and ... celebration.
The overarching intent of the European Salon that we had crafted two years ago for the first Salon in Reichenau an der Rax in Austria remains unchanged:
»To host a sustainable gathering space in Europe for dialogue practitioners with diverse professional backgrounds
using different modes of knowing for an in-depth exploration
of the kind of communities we need to build in order to face today’s global urgent challenges
and the roles of dialogue and leadership in inspiring, coordinating and effecting individual and collective action«
We continue our inquiry! This group is the online gathering space for those who are interested in the topics of the European Salon. Your contribution is welcome!
