How to host World Café gatherings in highly polarized situation?

I am interested in knowing about experiences in holding World Café gatherings in highly political polarized societies such as in Venezuela where there is plenty of mistrust and feelings of hate are rising. Is it wise or even possible to have cafe gatherings including fanatic-like participants?See More

Marxe, gracias por la bienvenida! Little misunderstanding regarding Peter Block. There is no such thing as a Peter Block´s Community that I´m aware of. What I meant to say was that I'm studying Peter Block's book: "Community: the Structure of Belonging" where he summarizes all the main characteristics and nuances of the LGI methodologies that create community. I will be posting my own summaries of his book.

Pues bienvenido, José, es un gusto tenerte por aquí. Leyendo en tu Muro, vi que estás trabajando en la comunidad de Peter Block. ¿Dónde podría saber más de eso?
