Dialogue as a Catalyst for radical Change

In English

Introduction to emergent dialogue

With Mike Kauschke and Maria Zacherl in English,
Wednesdays May 17, May 24, May 31 and June 7, from 7.30 pm till 9.30 pm CET

The emergent dialogue is a we-space practice that focuses on co-conscious, co-creative engagement of the participants. In these dialogues, new forms of shared recognition, sensing, thinking, caring, and creating are revealed – as integrated created force for the development and deepening of consciousness and culture. What kind of world can emerge between us when we enter into dialogue in this new way?

We invite everyone interested in dialogue, regardless of their own experience with various forms of dialogue. In this course, we want to explore together in dialogue how we can participate in bringing a new intersubjective awareness into the world.

This event is part of a “gift cycle”. That means you can support it with a contribution at your own discretion. (To cover our costs in producing the event, on average, that comes to 85 euros per person) If you can, feel free to give more. By doing so, you are supporting others to join and enabling us to organize these events in this way. Feel free to give as much as is possible and appropriate for you. And if it’s not possible, feel free to take it as a gift.

Four Wednesdays

From conventional forms of dialogue to intersubjective dialogues to dialogues supported by a we space.

The quality of not-knowing leads to deep aliveness and co-creativity in the inter-subjective space of consciousness.

The three dimensions of emergent dialogues: individual participation, the perpetual presence of being, and the co-creative aliveness from which emergence is possible.

The dialogue space and connectedness in everyday life.

The seminars are based in the interest of all of us in what we do not yet know. After an introductory impulse by the seminar leaders, we will experience, explore and deepen the qualities and attitudes of co-creative dialogue together. We experience a we-space, which also unfolds a surprising power through video conferencing.

In four Wednesdays, you can receive new impulses for different personal, professional, or communal contexts and experience how a dialogical awareness of each other and the world can be a key to a creative life out of connectedness.


Mike Kauschke is a senior editor at evolve magazine and a freelance translator with a focus on books with spiritual and integral themes, including those by Steve McIntosh, Frederic Laloux, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Rick Hanson, and Richard Rohr. He has practiced and studied Zen Buddhism with teachers in Germany and the United States and has been involved in hospice work. For over ten years he has been engaged in the practice and development of an evolutionary spirituality and is a dialogue facilitator for emergent dialogue.

Maria Zacherl has been leading our annual international meditation marathon for many years. Her great passion is meditation and emergent dialogues, which she practices regularly as a dialogue facilitator. In both together, meditation and dialogue, she experiences the potential for concrete change. For her, the development of humanity comes first, as a direct result of the transformative power of meditation and the experience of the unity in dialogue. In her everyday life, this is especially noticeable in her profession as a naturopath. In this deeper and transformed togetherness, a completely new basis for treatment is revealed, and thus for her, even outside the practice times for meditation and dialogue, spiritual practice never stops.

Dr. Elizabeth Debold

For the last forty-some years, I have sought the answer to the question: how can we transform the dynamics of relationship and complexities of desire between women and men so that we all can thrive and reach our full human potential?

This inquiry has taken me from feminist activism in New York City to a doctorate in developmental psychology with Dr. Carol Gilligan at Harvard to a tumultuous global spiritual community that pioneered collective awakening and, finally, to an ongoing experiment in intersubjective emergence in Frankfurt, Germany.

I founded One World in Dialogue, an online forum to explore how intersubjectivity can bring us together across cultures to create new capacities in global consciousness. An author, transformative educator, journalist/editor, community leader and mentor, I have found the answer to my question in the amazing collective emergence of the Co-Conscious We and seek to share its potential in all that I do.
