The revelation of what’s already here

Synthesis is a combination of ideas to form a theory or system.

What happens when the strands of Presence, Perspective, and Communion are intertwined? Ann Dosher once said, “life itself can be a conversation — with other people, with nature, and with all of life.”

Collaborative Learning: Deeper Levels of Knowing, an online offering By the World Cafe’s Community Table opened the doors to reveal a growing community garden. This LEARNING TOGETHER CIRCLE OF CONSCIOUSNESS invited people to experience collective intelligence through communion, presence, perception, flow, and resonance.

Collaborative Learning: Deeper Levels of Knowing 2 will be intended to establish and integrate the principles of conversation that lead to life by remembering what already exists and using emergent learning methods to evoke and accelerate collaborative learning at scale.

Dialogues that demonstrate collaborative action research (communal learning) to valuate success subjectively and objectively (explicit knowledge) designs and hosts a new living, growing community garden that adds voice to the possibilities that exist in the eternal now.

This dialogic practice isn’t some pie in the sky, the future on the horizon idea about changing education. It’s a practice of collaborative learning and intelligence whose time has come. It’s here! What if there were a critical mass of people willing to entertain the possibility that whatever it is humanity wanted to learn was not only here, but the wisdom that would emerge from that collaborative learning also already exists? Re-cognizing, remembering and revealing this wisdom has already been demonstrated. Now, is the time to practice and proliferate it, to expand it to a greater population for the greater good.

The result of collaborative learning using the World Cafe principles, from my personal experiences, have astounded me. What I have learned from other practitioners and participants have exceeded my experiential expectations. And if I could explain it coherently…I would, but the learning is in the experience and I have yet to be disappointed.

Again, I ask, what if the time were now, that a critical mass of people willing to entertain the possibility that whatever it is humanity wanted to learn was not only here, but the wisdom that would emerge from that collaborative learning also already exists?

Thank you for your time and for allowing me to think out loud!
