Bohmian Dialogue: A Collective Inquiry
Dialogue is not discussion, nor is it debate. Dialogue is a suspension of thoughts, impulses, judgments etc. A suspension that involves exposing your reactions, impulses, feelings and opinions in such a way that they can be seen and felt within your own psyche and also be reflected back by others in the group. It does not mean repressing or suppressing or, even, postponing them. It means, simply, giving them your serious attention so that their structures can be noticed while they are actually taking place.
A group of people, invited to give their time and serious attention to a task that has no apparent goal, and is not being led in any detectable direction may quickly find themselves experiencing a great deal of anxiety or annoyance. Participants find that they are involved in an ever-changing and developing pool of common meaning. A shared content of consciousness emerges which allows a level of presence, creativity and insight. You can expect to feel frustrated, confused, excited and delighted! I look forward to hosting a dialogue with you.
