The Dialogue is a way of Presencing, of being with what’s emerging in a common field with others. Maintain your sense of authentic self within a “We” made up of other “I”s as we remain true to ourselves in service to each other. I’ve been in a local group for some ten years and offered Dialogues online as well. I continue to love this powerful and beautiful deepening practice.
The guidelines we use will give you a sense of the flavour. Read them over. The guidelines emphasize personal responsibility and respect and make participants co-holders of the space.
Where David Bohm fits in
Bohn was an early generation nuclear physicist whose interest in the unified field led him to explore how the field might be experienced in consciousness. Since the field is unified it must be there as well, in what he called the implicate order – the inner world as opposed to the explicate (outer) order. Bohm hosted Dialogues in which participants could drop down below the habitual assumptions that he felt blocked the experience of the underlying unity. They were of varying success I understand but we follow in his seeding footsteps.
Block didn’t have a set of guidelines for accomplishing the Dialogue; he just launched in. Tom Yeomans, author of Holy Fire: The Process of Soul Awakening, together with an early Dialogue group of his own, created the guidelines we use. They’re part of effective container building and you are welcome to use them yourself, with attribution.
“I highly recommend this exploration and experience, based on being on 2 or 3 previous calls!! Wonderful people, wonderful experience. Highly expansive AND a good learning more about what it’s like to be in ‘shared mindfulness.'” (Alia Aurami, Enlivening Edge)
