"Hello Everyone! Just wanted to stop by and say I enjoyed reading the posts. If you like the World Cafe, you may be interested in enjoying an 'in person' salon that I created called the Saturday Salon. I hosted them monthly for…"
"I'm thinking that we need to come up with ways to make it seem more fun and appealing, and perhaps less risky, for the average participant. Easier too, I suppose, although emailing or uploading a jpeg isn't really that hard for many…"
"Beautiful, Lisa! Thanks so much for doing this, and for your words about the experience. It's so good having you be part of these Community Cafes.
I'd also love to see these images embedded in the content of our harvest, so people can see…"
"I love it Ben - We've done something like that with photographs of the face-to-face tablecloths... cutting out particularly enticing phrases or images and creating collages of them, or in other cases just using them in other contexts. They are…"
"Thanks for the comments, Lisa. And for not criticizing my handwriting!
Re your skype harvesting, MC does record everything in the main room, so if you used it without breakouts, you could create an actual library of your conversations.
What do you…"
"Great energy in these, Ben. And we certainly have a circle theme going on. I resonated to your family history as mine is the same. I like the star of David that captures that part of the discussion.
In terms of harvest, one thing I do regularly…"
"Thanks to everyone involved in today's online cafe. Having hosted eight of these now, it was a pleasure and a very valuable experience to be a pure participant.
LOVE the graphic recording Lisa. I have attached my own "tabletop…"
"Hi everyone. I really enjoyed our call today. It was thought and heart provoking. I did some graphic recording and will share it here. I welcome further discussions on the topic as it evolved. I hope the visuals help in that regard.
I was very…"
"Great points Adriano & Benjamin,
The right and the left both love to use language to divide and roil up emotions. What we need are conversations that will get us moving forward as a nation and as a leading example of freedom in the world.
"Hi everyone. I recommend to involve people on this issue that have personal experience on the subject to go beyond the intellectual discussion ... As a recent immigrant I would welcome the dropping of the word ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT from the conversation…"
"1) I can only imagine but I think that firstly I will be paralyzed by fear and shock. Than the wave of surreal feeling will be happening, which I have felt in serious dramatic situations. Devastation on this scale is quite incomprehensible to my…"
I can appreciate that this issue is quite the political football. And I agree that Obama is a politician through and through. But I'm surprised that you see no possibility that what Obama warned about in the quote you used…"
"Should be some very fertile ground for the next call. We touched on immigration in the context of the Coffee Party Movement on my world cafe call last night. Here's an interesting comment from the harvest that might inform our thinking:…"
Hello Everyone! Just wanted to stop by and say I enjoyed reading the posts. If you like the World Cafe, you may be interested in enjoying an 'in person' salon that I created called the Saturday Salon. I hosted them monthly for about ten years and finally wrote a book about it, including a history of conversation salons from France to New York, pot luck recipes, talking sticks and hosting tips and tricks. A Saturday Salon is a way to bring people together from all different backgrounds for a warm, engaging evening of great food, wine and conversation. You and your guests select the topics and use a talking stick to keep the talk on track. My site is always changing, so stop by anytime for new topics, recipes and pictures- and feel free to participate in our online salon, too. If you'd like a copy of the book, it's available in all formats on the site, or you can find us at the iBookstore, Amazon and for the nook if you prefer ebooks.
