This annual Open Space gathering over the Martin Luther weekend has been a tradition for many years. Many were introduced to Open Space here for the very first time; others have come to deepen their exploration and practice of it.
There is a gentle flow about this experiential event hosted by Harrison Owen and Karen Davis. The late Ralph Copeland and others were involved in the past. This year the Open Space Institute, US decided to formally lend a hand,  to help in the planning and inviting.
In doing so, we also felt a yearning to provide our world wide community of friends and colleagues an opportunity to peak in, to experience this gathering with us in real time. It's always a delicate balance to honor this special and intimate time of being together face-to-face, to truly be present in the emergence of our conversations together while also providing a window to share our learning with others which is at the heart of this community.
The theme of "Opening Space for Peace and High Performance at Work and in Life: Navigating Chaos, Confusion and Conflict" is palpably felt...even more so following the tragic events in Paris recently and also the violence in other parts of the world.
Christine Koehler who traveled from Paris yesterday will be opening the Space, this morning. Others have come from near and far to be here, familiar and new faces.
This morning at the opening circle, we will be consulting the group to see if they are willing that reports and photos be posted on line in real time. We have set up a Google Drive location for this. We want individuals and groups to feel safe and free in their sharing so it may be that not all reports will be shared. Participants themselves will decide in their groups as the discussions happen. We will be asking everyone if they are comfortable with our plans. I'm guessing that if it is yes, we may experiment a few things in other ways with the goal of inviting and including others in the emergence of our time together. Already we feel the presence of so many in spirit.
So my friends, in the early morning hours before we have even opened space, I wanted to describe our heartfelt intentions. We will let you know more and will provide you with the link to access if it is a go to proceed this way. Please forgive us, if it does not offer all that you would like or if this appears a bit last minute. It's one of those things that we can't totally plan.
Suzanne on behalf of a gang of folks involved in helping out.
Navigate chaos, confusion and clnflict!

En-joy life!
