My earlier posting on Open Space Practices has been updated to include the following distinctions…
- Being Open-Hearted: The vehicle is experience in body (heart, perception); the product is care, a sense of personal passion.
- Telling Visionary Stories: The vehicle is invitation (literally, “please join us…”); the product is organization, a sense of focus, future, and desired direction.
- Offering and Holding Space: The vehicle is organizing space (elbow room and open markets); the product is inviting, a sense of support and opportunity for movement.
- Grounding: The vehicle is direct and personal responsibility (action); and the product is peace, or satisfaction.
Hoping this helps put a sharper point on the newer, briefer, telling of the Practices story.
