Event description

Description

Join a growing eco-system of practitioners who use the “art of scribing” to bridge the ecological, social, and spiritual divides we experience in our world today. Scribing – a process of drawing while people talk – provides a mirror that can help a system see itself in new light. With intention to build navigational capacity for the rapidly changing times in which we we live, this program will focus on:

  • Activating intelligences of the Open Mind, Heart, and Will
  • Deepening practice of a visual sense-making discipline
  • Cultivating knowledge of social technologies

We will cover aspects of Presencing, system and conversational diagnostics, levels of listening, generative scribing, discernment for ‘letting go and letting come’, 2D modeling, project planning, and shared applications of this work in a variety of contexts. The learning process will involve presentations, hands-on practice, peer-to-peer reflections, and large group conversations.


Who should participate?

Scribes who want to bring Presencing and Systems Thinking into their practice, and visual thinkers seeking to expand their capacity. Though you do not have to be a skilled scribe to join the fun, we are anticipating that this program will have a large proportion of existing visual practitioners. Regardless of your experience level, be prepared to draw as the main method of expression.
