STEPPING UP TO TODAY’S BIGGEST CHALLENGES:
A Multilayered Learning Experience
- DD & CoR Experience 6-8 June 2017
- Instructors Programme: 9 June 2017 (accredited instructors only)
- Elders Programme: 10 June 2017 (by invitation)
The theme of the DD experience this year is the perfect storm of change and how we as DD practitioners can step up to the challenge! Please come back to this space soon as details are evolving and more information will be added.
Every period in history has its challenges, but today we are facing a confluence of challenges. The global refugee crisis, xenophobia, historic divisions in the Middle East, extreme political polarization in the west, poverty, terrorism, materialism and planetary destruction: we are experiencing the perfect storm of events. Many parts of the world are speeding towards major change, and major transformation.
At the 2017 Experience WE who practice The Lewis Method of Deep Democracy, CoResolve and Lets talk will explore how we can step up to the world’s challenges as we experience them in our nations and communities, at work and in and our personal lives. It is open to anyone with the base understanding of the Lewis Method of Deep Democracy.
We recognize that the tools we hold in our hands -while they are no magic bullet- hold a tremendous potential to be helpful in these tumultuous times. While many of us don’t work directly with the hottest global issues of our times, we recognize that they inevitably impact us, our teams, our clients, our families, our relationships, and ourselves. At the 2017 Experience we ask ourselves: do I step up in my milieu? And if so, how?
The Experience is not so much a conference as it is the gathering of a community or practitioners wanting to take their Lewis Method skills to the next level. The programme will include presentations and information sharing about the newest developments in the Method and the Community of Practice. It includes meaningful interactions with local issues and actors, tuning into Brussels as a microcosm of the larger world. It also includes a series of small and large group processes on topics’ of your choice, where we expect the most impactful learning and insights to happen. Equivalent to master classes, these group processes will be led by highly skilled elders of the community and debriefed collectively.
The Learning Opportunity:
You can expect to learn from attending the Experience on multiple levels: gain new awareness in relation to your topics of interest and in relation to yourself, enhance your skills through observation and practice, learn from demonstration of a variety of effective personal styles in using the tools, gain inspiration and find ways to make your work more powerful. You are also likely to find likeminded people within our large international community, who may become friends, colleagues, thinking partners, motivators and support in your ongoing journey.
