Open Space Coaching and Facilitation
Open Space Coaching and Facilitation is characterised, in the first instance, by patience, listening, attending to what IS - it is essentially a contemplative outlook. What are we attending to? We are attending to life as gift/grace.
When we trust (and it’s frequently difficult) in the emergence of life as gift – that whoever is here with us, right now, are the right people; that whatever is happening is the seed bed of new life, and that whatever is occurring is occurring precisely when it needs to – we become more attuned to the extraordinary. This is also the reality of complex adaptive systems – that is, the world we inhabit!
In Open Space we seek to create, together, conditions of attention to what is and to what is possible (1)
