Collective Sense Making in a Time of Transformation
Weekly conversations on FRIDAYS |
CURRENT SERIES ENDING: July 24
Engaging great, unanswerable questions is our uniquely human birthright.
So far as we know, we are the only animal who does this.
We are voyagers of meaning. We are explorers of mystery. We are forgers of belonging.
We are meaning-weavers. And we do this in community.
Right now, in a time of global self-discovery, our call—our especially human call—is to engage with the questions before us and practice collective sense-making in pursuit of a more beautiful way forward for all.
Join the facilitated,participatory, intimate 8-week conversation.
Let’s not forget, as we sit facing our screens, as we don our masks, as we stay close to home, that our lineage as sense-makers is a profoundly collective one.
In order to understand, we are compelled to gather together. We sit in circle, we vigorously debate, we co-create, we dance, we sing, we gaze upward, we narrate, we listen.
How ever we are going forward, we will not find our way if we do not engage—together.
The answers will not be given to us on our small rectangles, or in the faces of our talking heads. And despite the temptation, we will not find it satisfying to merely choose our own adventures, winding our own private paths up the same mountain.
Instead, let’s try an old new way.
“Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly now. Love mercy now. You are not obligated to complete the work, neither are you free to abandon it.” - The Talmud
The weekly facilitated conversations of the Great Village Conversations are highly participatory and interactive experiences guided by a team of skilled facilitators, who work collaboratively to sense and surface dynamic themes and questions for each week’s gathering.
