Art of Convening Workshop Coming Up in San Francisco

The Presidio Dialogues (www.thepresidiodialogues.org) will be hosting a dialogue about “The Art of Light-Handed Convening” on May 23, 2006 at 7PM. Some of the questions they’ll consider are: What habits do we need to let go of in order to have true dialogue? When does facilitation draw attention to the process or the moderator rather than furthering the inquiry? How does dialogue emerge from among a group of strangers, and what conditions are the most evocative for true inquiry? What role does individual ego play? Registration is at 7:00 PM and the meeting begins at 7:15 pm. The location is the Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center, 747 Front St. (@ Broadway) 3rd Floor, San Francisco. Cost is $20 in advance by registering online; $25 in advance (by email, phone or check); $30 at the door. To register online, go to the website listed above. Or email events@saybrook.edu.
