Holistic Dialogue Overview
'A space for collective inquiry and exploration, transcending our psychological structures in real-time with absolutely no expertise'
WHAT IS HOLISTIC DIALOGUE?
Beyond the above subtitle of a definition lies nothing but speculation and interpretation of what one sees in the here and now; all that is open for a fundamentally fresh look in a Holistic Dialogue (HD). Because whatever is present with me/ us could be nothing more than the past reproducing itself, hence, limited and not the whole.
To dialogue is to face yourself instantly. Understanding anew each moment.
It is vital for friendship, that immeasurable quality, to be present from the beginning. Because then, the act of judgment and measurement (what stifles the living in relationship and oneself) ends up exposed and eventually gone through and beyond. Normally in judgement, comparison, measurement, etc., creative space is so scarce if ever present at all. And for dialogue, creativity is necessary because creativity is essential for a healthy living. Otherwise we exaggerate and end up losing our sensitivity.
This is why we are here, to understand what it actually means to be sensitive, alive, vibrant.
WHY TO DIALOGUE?
The reasons are infinite in detail and in context. Surely those reasons are probably what brought me to HD but are they what make one dialogue? The question of ‘why’ is something that is often addressed in an HD either individually or collectively if not both at the same time. The question itself also addresses relationship and whether it is intact only through reasoning and agenda. Whether it is possible to be in a relationship once a reason is cleared out or to be in relationship when there is no clear reason behind it.
The titled question was approached in a dialogue manner, just now, and we definitely can continue or do this together as HD is for, both, groups and individuals.
THE ROLE OF THE FACILITATOR
One of things that makes HD different is the deep understanding of thought and thinking. Traditionally we overlook the fact that we live our lives through the dominant thought process and so we do not question it. The lacking of this foundational understanding hinders and breaks down the dialogue, breaks down the flow of living. Here is where the facilitator's role comes in: to clarify what is going on and what might need to be paid attention to. Having said that, the facilitator's role is not fixed as an HD is not run by roles.
HOW TO BE PART OF THIS?
If you are still here, then you are already partaking. The question is then, how can I take this further?
