A beginning

Well some enthusiastic friends have already been peeking around in here, so i guess i had better launch this--ready or not...

This blog began as an idea and an intention flowing from my experience at OSonOS 13 in Halifax. While there, the conviction grew in me that the practices that support Open Space are also very strong practices for life in general. That they could form a part of a strong spiritual path--much like meditation enhances whatever spiritual path you are on and brings great gifts to your life. I have found that the practices of opening, inviting, holding, and grounding support me in much more than just opening space. And once i began to open space, i wanted to live that way in all areas of my life, not just in my work.

And also in Halifax it seemed to me that there were a lot of other people who were experiencing something similar. That just as we believe that Open Space helps to bring Spirit back to organizations, it seems to do the same for people. And that the people who are engaged in actively opening space are a community of Spirit and could use a place to share those aspects of what we do. So here it is. Make of it what you will.

This is intended as a place to share your encounters with Spirit, mystery and Open Space. It is a place to share practices that you find support you in opening space. It is a place to wonder about what this marvelous gift, called Open Space, might be. And mostly, it is a place to connect, commune, and support each other in our big questions, little discoveries, and daily encounters with practice.

This is a group blog. If you would like to join in the fun, just email me at the link up on the right and i will send you an invitation and instructions. At the moment we don't have comments enabled. If we find that we want to add them at a later date, we can do that.
