Sit-and-Share Guidelines for Sharing
- Everyone is equally invited to contribute; but ‘sharing’ is optional and
- You do not have to agree with the topic.
- There should be no interruptions during individual sharing.
- There should be no criticism, or personal comments – although a
response is ok if its relevant
- Please pause before you share – to provide a space for ideas to become
- Please try to suspend assumptions and judgement; and not to to convince
- ‘Sharing’ should not driven by fear of censure or judgement, or by the
desire for “success”.
- You are encouraged to be open to the whole experience – the whole is
greater than the sum of the individual contributions.
Putting these guidelines into effect requires buy-in from all participants – from the whole Group. We do this using the guidelines for Bohmian Dialogue. These are based on principles laid down by David Bohm, a theoretical physicist (b. 1917), an associate of J. Krishnamurti and A. Einstein, and advisor to the Dalai Lama.
