Growing our Beloved Community



• What difference can it make,
when people with diverse perspectives
engage in productive and enjoyable conversations,
even on challenging social issues?

• What difference can it make,
when people become genuinely interested and curious about differences,
instead of threatened and defensive? 

• And what difference can that make,
to the issues you care most about?


In our intro evenings, we offer you and your group a taste of the “OMAH” process.
In this work, each person gets to:

  • share their own authentic perspectives 
  • feel deeply heard
  • hear others’ strongly-felt beliefs, within a context of opennness and empathy

We invite you to experience a co-creative space,
where differences can contribute in a positive way to our evolving shared understanding.

We can explore a pre-selected topic, or select a topic based on participants’ input.
After a facilitated conversation, we can debrief our experience together, and explore possible applications.

Below are some comments that participants have made about this work:

“It seemed we all felt moved to a different place, from where we started. I am feeling something moving in our consciousness. What has been stirred up, means that there will be a lot of experimentation. This work has depth.”

“I see real value in this work for conflict resolution.”

“Reflecting on my own unconscious bias, and us-them nature, helps me become ‘part of the solution’. This was an opportunity to be faced with how to heal myself, so I can operate from greater integrity and wholeness.” 

“This work creates depth with passion. Seeing it in others, feeling myself be moved – this activates me and gives me a sense of life again.”
