there is no self that will survive a real conversation.

David Whyte

these dialogues change me from the inside out, they reorient me inwardly, another 'I' emerges in me: an 'I' whose inner anchor point rests in the collective field of consciousness between the people with whom I am currently together. This new identity, awakening in dialogue, takes each participant out of being trapped in the small, separate 'I,' it opens new perspectives, holds a multi-layered complexity and enables a creatively fulfilling togetherness. In this sense, emergent dialogue is the beginning of radical change.

Marlene Potthoff

Have you heard about emergent dialogue?
Do you want to take part in a new potential of togetherness?

In this brief, four session course, you can get a taste of another potential that comes alive between us when we are open and sense into what we don’t already know. This course, led by two senior practitioners in the dialogue process, offers you the chance to experiment with a new intersubjective potential for being, learning, and co-creating together.
 
The foundation and living core of each session is our shared interest in what we do not yet know. Each session begins with an introductory impulse by the seminar leaders. Then we will experience, explore and deepen the qualities and attitudes of co-creative dialogue together. We will experience a “we-space”, which has a surprising power to unfold through video conferencing.

In four Sundays, you can experience a new direction for the personal, professional, and communal contexts of your life. Through turning to each other and to the world in dialogue, one discovers a key to living a creative life rooted in connectedness.

Marlene Potthoff studied the teaching of biology and political science. She has been working in the environmental movement for over 20 years. In addition to her commitment to climate protection and the development of environmental awareness, her perception and desire for a deeper understanding of the spiritual impulse within herself has always been a motivation in her life. Through an intense engagement with these two impulses–the need for social engagement and the perception of the importance of the spiritual dimension–she came to realize how important the evolutionary development of consciousness is in us humans.
In emergent dialogue, she sees an ideal combination of these two impulses for the development of a new human culture. As a volunteer, she directs the HigherWe programs and  emergent dialogue offerings.

Maria Zacherl led our annual international meditation marathon for many years. She has a great passion for meditation and emergent dialogue, which she practices regularly as a dialogue facilitator. Together, through both of these practices, meditation and dialogue, she experiences the potential for concrete change. For her, the inner development of humanity needs to come first. She has experienced the direct result of the transformative power of meditation and the experience of unity-in-diversity in dialogue.
In her daily life, this transformative power is especially noticeable in her professional work as a healing practitioner. A completely new basis for treatment is revealed in this deeper and transformed togetherness, and thus for her, even outside the practice times for meditation and dialogue, spiritual practice never stops.

Kerry Lindsey: After a long trifold path through the arenas of small business start-ups, collective spiritual practices, and developing physical communities, my paths began to merge 30 years ago into the world of collaborative technologies.  That journey ultimately landed me in the realm of intersubjective practices five years ago. Thanks to the new world that opened, the context that most drives me now is, “How do we create–From the We– the localized human-scale economies that will absolutely work… for the we, and the planet?”
