Appreciative Inquiry-Dreaming together

Page history last edited by happyjackiec3 5 years, 3 months ago

Week one

Part A:

In pairs, each partner in turn, please give a personal account, describing in as much detail as possible either

A time when you felt the promise of this practice for your life, or

Something this year that filled you with joy, when you felt most engaged, challenged, alive.

Part B:

Imagine we asked someone who knows you well to describe the three best qualities they see in you. What would they say?

Now think about over time what fosters your own practice and development on your spiritual path. Can you describe what you’ve observed, what generates growth and aliveness for you?

Part C:

Homework. Reflect on these questions: Suppose you fell asleep for a good long time, and when you woke up, Ordinary Mind had been extraordinarily evolved, a place and community and teachings that you dreamed of is completely realized. What is going on? What is the environment like? What are people doing? How are you involved differently than right now? What were the keys to this extraordinary success? How did all this happen?

 

Week two

The most important thing any group or community or nation can do is to share our dreams and to dream together. This is not a sangha improvement project, or a problem-solving exercise. It is based on our work last week discovering the qualities of the times when we felt most alive, joyful, engaged, and challenged. Now we move forward in dreaming together a future that brings more and more of that experience into our lives.

We are architects of meaning, designing the experiences and environments that will support true liberation, connectedness, and our unique contribution in the world. Our work together arises in response to the cries of the world, and in function it is precisely the turning of the wheel of dharma, right here and right now. The only genuine question is, What am I creating for myself and others right now, and what is my aspiration?

And at the sangha level: what are we creating—together—for ourselves and others, and what is our shared aspiration? So, mindfully and intentionally, let’s think about this question, together. You want to find a partner, and sit together. Becoming mindful together, just reflect on this question:

 

Suppose you fell asleep for a good long time, and when you woke up, Ordinary Mind had been extraordinarily evolved, a place and community and teachings that you dreamed of is completely realized. What is going on? What is the environment like? What are people doing? How are you involved differently than right now? What were the keys to this extraordinary success? How did all this happen?

Take your time; don’t rush.
