If you are new to the World Cafe, would you please share how you heard about this community?
I heard about this community through Llona Christl who I met in several world cafe community forums in Prague and who also attended sessions I was co- facilitating on the Vocation and Artistry of Leadership at the November Conference of the International Leadership Association.
What field is the primary focus of your World Café work (ONLY CHECK AREAS WHERE YOU ARE ALREADY ACTIVELY USING WORLD CAFE PLEASE)?
Health, Corporate, Community
What knowledge, skills or resources would you like to contribute to the World Café community to help it grow and flourish?
I am a pianist/composer leadership educator and writer - I have been engaged in creating generative spaces for dialogue for many years and look forward to sharing and buiulding on this experience with others.
What would you most like to receive from this community?
I would look forward to extending my community outside of Canada and North America where most of my work is focused. I hope to broaden my perspective on what is happening currently and what more is possible in other parts of the world. I also envision the possibility of creating a global community or commons that building of the perspectives of many voices to reunite ancient wisdom with modern thought to build resilient communities that integrate the mind and the heart.
Juanita suggested contacting you as someone who has experimented with combining the creative arts and World Cafe. I am really interested in this and have started a discussion asking people to share their experiences. I would love to hear from you. Do you ever live music and/or other arts with Cafe or other social processes? Best wishes, Jasmine
Dear Michael, could you get a feel of what's going on, is and was this side helpfull to you? I'm curious how you perceive this "community"
Snow is slowly melting away, giving spring its chance, the birds anounce it already, though the earth is still sleeping.
Big hug Ilona
Welcome Michael! How wonderful to see you here at last! :-) You have such magic to contribute and I'm looking forward to seeing how it will flourish here - once you have "found your feet" here perhaps you would consider hosting a group that focuses on "the creation of world cafe experiences - particularly experiences that integrate the arts through music, story, poetry, movement and other forms of expression."?
I think there would be enthusiastic response to such a group - I know I'd be interested.
Dear Michael, I'm so glad you made it and am sure, you meat a lot of interesting people. I told you about the European Salon, you'll find some conversations about it here and can see who joined us. The harvesting, graphical recording is not yet uploaded, but hopefully somedays it will. Will you share some of your music? Logos and mythos are still looking forward to their marriage. Big hug and w warm welcome.
