Contents & objectives

up

In this phase the group enters into a space of creating (profoundly) new knowledge in an individual process of letting-go and emergence: in a first step the process of collective sense making about the KCT’s thematic field is continued. On the basis of the thematic field and its reflection each participant individually exposes him-/herself to the silence of nature by letting-go his/her patterns of thought and perception; in that activity one creates an empty space in which the new can emerge in a fragile process of balancing openness, listening to “what wants to emerge”, following one’s train of thoughts and letting them go...

In this process of presencing (Scharmer 2007, Senge et al. 2004) both radically new and at the same time “organically grown” knowledge emerges out of a profound understanding of the thematic field (having been developed in the previous units) and a deep unity with what is there and with oneself; this is achieved by discovering and exploring both the core assumptions and the potentialities of the field and oneself.

In a final step the resulting themes and questions of the participants are brought together and “negotiated” in a (generative) dialogue-like setting. This dialogue aims at coming up with a collective project description reflecting both the individuals’ themes and a shared vision of the KCT.
