Seasonal Dialogue – Dates –2020

Seasonal Dialogue

The Seasonal Dialogue group is now in its 16th year of meeting together. We meet together at the Melting Pot in Edinburgh as an open group welcoming anyone to attend who has an interest in the practice of dialogue. Drawing on the four seasons as a metaphor we seek to practice Bohmian free flowing dialogue.

It is an opportunity to take time to learn how to build a powerful container through learning the 4 dialogue practices of (1) listening, (2) voicing, (3) respecting and (4) suspending. You will experience and contribute to a time and space that is safety at its core, has energy and offers the possibility to reflect, inquire and gain insight into thinking yours and others that may not be available elsewhere. We begin with a check in question from a group member allowing each in the group to bring their voice into the room. Once all have checked in the dialogue will go where it goes. The space will begin to close down around 8ish with a check out comment, reflection or insight from each of the group.

"...it is proposed that a form of free dialogue may well be one of the most effective ways of investigating the crisis which faces society, and indeed the whole of human nature and consciousness today. Moreover, it may turn out that such a form of free exchange of ideas and information is of fundamental relevance for transforming culture and freeing it of destructive misinformation, so that creativity can be liberated." David Bohm

Now into our 16th year group members have found that David Bohm’s words echo loudly. This is indeed a space to ‘sense make’ in an everly increasing world of uncertainty.A

'T is you that are the music, not your song.
The song is but a door which, opening wide,
Lets forth the pent-up melody inside,
Your spirit's harmony, which clear and strong
Sings but of you. Throughout your whole life long
Your songs, your thoughts, your doings, each divide
This perfect beauty; waves within a tide,
Or single notes amid a glorious throng.
The song of earth has many different chords;
Ocean has many moods and many tones
Yet always ocean. In the damp Spring woods
The painted trillium smiles, while crisp pine cones
Autumn alone can ripen. So is this
One music with a thousand cadences.

― Amy Lowell -1874-192
