Bohmian Dialogue

An occasional group held online, usually the first Sunday of the month.  See if you’d like to join in!

David Bohm was a nuclear physicist who interest in the unified field led him to explore (in the 1980s) how the field might be experienced in consciousness. Since the field is unified it must be there as well, in what he called the implicate order.

He called together groups in which participants could drop down below the customary assumptions that he felt, blocked the experience of the underlying unity.

I’m in a face-to-face group that’s been using a particular way of holding dialogue for some 15 years. The guidelines we use were originally put together by Tom Yeomans of the Concord Institute in New England. I’ve adapted them into my own words.  Typically we take turns reading them  aloud before  the Dialogue. If you read them out loud you’ll get a sense of where it goes.

The group is a way of “presencing,” just being with what’s emerging and noticing how our own experience is in the context of a common “field” or living context. Practicing this “we-space” makes it easier to feel the presence of a relational consciousness at other times. We’re always in a field.

Subscribers receive notice of upcoming Dialogues.

“I highly recommend this exploration and experience, based on being on 2 or 3 previous calls!! Wonderful people, wonderful experience. Highly expansive AND a good learning more about what it’s like to be in ‘shared mindfulness.'” (Alia Aurami, Enlivening Edge)

Another participant, whose name I’ve unfortunately forgotten, wrote,“I found it quite insightful, warm, welcoming and comforting. I surprised myself how I could hold a stronger presence with less distraction than usual. The deep listening out felt like it also contributed to senses emerging from a deeper inner place. As a newbie I felt safe and welcome in the space. With appreciation …”
