GLEN Community Call #1: Being Present to our Global Crisis

10:00am to 12:00pm March 22, 2020

Several years ago, we initiated The GLEN to help evolve our ability to collaboratively respond to crises that defy conventional boundaries. Now, all around the world people are increasingly impacted by the rapidly evolving and uncertain COVID -19 pandemic. This exchange is a call for members to come together to collectively witness the impact of this global emergency on our individual and collective lives. The crisis is asking of us to respond differently in extraordinary ways. This call is a place to step back, take a breath, engage in a quieting reflective practice and a thoughtful collective inquiry. Gisela Wendling and David Sibbet will be hosting this exchange twice so that more members have the opportunity to be in touch with each other in this important time.

Exploring the Edge of Visual Practice

SERIES 9-11:00 am Pacific Mar 23 - Jun 08, 2020

When David Sibbet began to practice Graphic Facilitation in the late 1970s, he did not imagine in his wildest dreams that his ideas would one day lead the way for fellow practitioners around the globe. More than 40 years later, David still pioneers the field of Visual Practice. Markus Engelberger is a leader in bringing visual practice to Europe and represents a new generation who honor the shoulders of giants they are standing on, but also curiously challenge assumptions and explore the uncharted territory beyond the edges of the Practice that draws them together. Join Markus & David in an exploration of the Language, Value, Myths and Potentials of Visual Practice. GLEN members contact glen@glencommunity.org to receive a coupon for free registration.

Exploring the Theory of Process

SEVEN SESSIONS: 8:30 am to 10:30 am Jan 13 - Jul 13, 2020

David Sibbet studied with Arthur M. Young from 1976-1982 and based much of The Grove Consultants International’s process work on his Theory of Process. This series is for people who would like to dig under the various applications (Team Performance; Group Graphic Keyboard; Seven Challenge of Change) and learn the core conceptual tools. It is one of the most powerful integrative languages for process design, and potentially the basis of a new paradigm where consciousness and matter are appreciated as tightly linked. Arthur called his Theory the Yoga of Thinking. David likes to think of it as the discipline behind conceptual jazz.

Unfolding Wisdom Retreat

Apr 16 - Apr 19, 2020

The practice of leadership requires each of us to trust and access our own interior world while also participating and contributing to larger organizational and cultural systems. Alan Briskin and Kathia Laszlo invite you to join them for an exploration into the realm of paradox, the harmony of contradictions, and the felt sense of belonging to a community of seekers, change makers, and consciousness pioneers. Be prepared to stretch conceptually and emotionally via experiential exercises and creative expression. The retreat is designed for individuals who work with groups in their capacity as leaders, consultants, facilitators, and change agents. Registration on this site indicates your interest. To FORMALLY REGISTER go to UNFOLDING WISDOM. Additional information is available there.

The design team which also includes Hubert De Groot, Katja Weinstock, and Sylvia Lewandowska-Akhvlediana, inspired by the prospect of having a more connected and collaborative network in Europe, has begun the design for the gathering to be held at the Buchmühle in Bergisch Gladbach, near Cologne, Germany.  We are very excited about this opportunity!
