Chiara Borello, Organizational Consultant, http://solutionsorg.ca/:
”Andrew and I have been meeting weekly for the last 5 months in a simply presencing practice. Though, I’m a lover of Truth and have a daily spiritual practice, the interaction with Andrew has exponentially provided a sense of presence that lingers even after our short dialogue. It’s helped me to be grounded in Presence with my personal relationships as well as a consultant and facilitator. I’m more at peace with myself and at ease with the chaos that may emerge around me. The consistent experience of being present with another person, without any judgment or attachment, feels like I’ve come home. The best part is that conditioning seems to have fallen away without any effort. I’m deeply grateful for having crossed paths with Andrew. I believe that Andrew’s presencing practice is what the world needs, right now, to heal the relationship with self and others; and know who you really are as a unique aspect of Consciousness.”
Participant Lynn Thomas, PhD: The Hello Climate Change! is just what I’ve been wanting without even knowing I wanted it. I volunteer regarding climate change and reversing it through drawdown. I’m in groups that include looking at the issue with body, mind and spirit. Yet the questions we work with here and the approach of awareness of the group field/intelligence are completely fresh for me and I find myself growing as a sacred activist even more.
Eric Hansen, Ph.D., President, Economic Transformations Group :
I’m getting that this question about climate change as it really approaches me and others at our emotional core, I find that to be something I hadn’t paid that much attention to and the extent to which any activist movement really needs that kind of caretaking – where are we with that emotion – and to bring the whole person into that.
John Eastcott (carpenter):
I’ve been carrying a lot of the weight of that [climate change] conversation on my own and sharing it with [my partner] and others who are open to it but it’s my perception that the opportunities to connect in that way are rare, but the online group in that space that you created in the we-space, there’s really a lot of immediacy and prese(nce. I can fully be present for myself and others in that space in a way that seems harder in everyday conversation . . .
Gordon Carmichael, retired Police Officer and helper, Scotland, speaking of the WE-SPACE group Andrew hosts with the excellent Vihra Dincheva: I observed and felt the warmth of the welcome I received, some verbal, and some of it visual, a smile, a friendly wave and it was collectively beautiful and genuine. When silence developed … I felt held, safely and securely and then the silence itself was named and concern was expressed for those who were silent – beautifully and intuitively caring, yet seemingly challenging. Like those who have jumped into a pool, encouraging others to join them!
Anna Harris, retired, UK, also speaking of the WE-SPACE group Andrew hosts with the excellent Vihra Dincheva : … always an adventure, never knowing what will turn up, either in the group or myself.
Doug Brietbart, former lawyer, NY, USA, full-time developer of generative conversations: As an avid fan of Vihra and Andrew’s work in the generative conversation ecosystem, I wholeheartedly recommend taking advantage of the opportunity, whenever presented to join them in their We Space explorations.
It is a space where one and all are welcome, honored and invited to co-create and share an experience of safety, trust, caring, attentiveness, acceptance, and acknowledgment; and, be given an opportunity to contribute without expectation, demand, pre-requisite or limitation.
They inspire and enact what the future of how we as human beings can connect, share and be together here and now. A very rare and special place to pull up a chair, sit together and share a virtual cup
