Participatory Spirituality for the 21st Century
Here is the issue. From the Narrative Summary:
The editors have asked me (Tim) to put together a narrative summary to accompany the bullet points David created to outline our conversation, “The Intersection of PatternDynamics and Integral Post-Metaphysical Spirituality.” We subtitled the talk: “What Brings Us Together.” I’ll recount how we explored that theme as well as include some reflections on the process of creating and recording our conversation and where those reflections might lead. Our talk extended to a rather long, long-form podcast recording in three parts. I’ll try and give the reader the opportunity to sense where they may want to dive in, if they do not have time for all three pieces.
David and Tim, I really enjoyed your conversation. When I was reviewing and proofreading your transcript for this issue, I kept thinking how complementary what you were describing was to some of the themes explored in my “Generative (En)closures” piece, and how it would have been good to collaborate or at least head-huddle a little before offering our respective contributions… But there’s still time for some head-huddling! I’d be interested, for instance, in a “Pattern Dynamics” translation of some of the concepts and dynamics discussed in my (dialogical) essay, and just exploring together what factors contribute to generative (and “deep dialogical”) spaces.
Thanks Bruce! I look forward to reading your contribution. I remember from the Ning forum discussions on Generative (En)closures that I felt there were some interesting parallels with PatternDynamics that could be further explored, so it should be a rich conversation!
